For those of you diagnosed with both things, I wanted to share that I developed Chronic Fatigue after having endometriosis for 10 years (the two years prior to getting CFS my endo got very bad). When I finally saw a proper surgeon, had the endometriosis removed and got relief of my endo symptoms, the CFS has basically almost disappeared in the 4 months post-surgery. Although I have no clue how it happened, I am certain the endometriosis caused the CFS (or made the CFS worse) somehow and that treatment for my endometriosis allowed my body to recover from the CFS. I don't think its entirely gone (it comes back when I get very ill again), but for those of you suffering from both - insist on proper treatment for the endo before trying to tackle the CFS.
