New here...uncommon Endometriosis/Adenomyosis symptoms?

Hello Ladies,
I had to join to tell my story because I don't see anything here that really describes what I'm dealing with.

On day two of my period in December, I got a pain in my lower left side that reminded me of ovulation pain; only thing is it's still here. It will subside at some points during the day and then out of the blue, I'd get the sensation again. I went to the gyn and she sent me for a abdo/vag sonograms which were suspicious of Adenomyosis. She referred me for an MRI to confirm.

Had the MRI which confirmed "marked Adenomyosis" - my myometrial junctional zone is in excess of 24.7 mm and I think the norm is no more than 8 mm. My thing is, my periods are rather light and my menstrual cramping is very vague. The only pain I feel is the lower left side which radiates to my hip and back on a daily basis. I take aleve and tylenol just to make it not as annoying.

Oh, for some time in January, I'd get this sensation in my uterus like a strong light just flashed in there. That doesn't happen a lot though. I have an appointment with my GP tomorrow to ask if the adeno is indeed the cause for my symptoms or if I should be testing for something else.

Does anyone else have this?

Hi,

I have had very similar symptoms to you....
Pains in my legs,right down to my toes! tingling sensations in the pelvic area, a very bloated stomach, irregular periods, severe ovulation pain......nausea and extreme fatigue.

After seeing my GP was referred to a Gyn and had a vaginal scan which showed adenomyosis and a dermoid? cyst on my right ovary.

Despite horrific period pain my periods are very light, maybe a day or two at the most.

I already have 4 children so am not concerned about fertility but fear that I may need a hysterctomy. Altho the doc thinks I will only need keyhole surgery. Am having another scan in the next month to see what the cyst is doing and then will be fitted with a mirena coil during surgery to control the adenomyosis.

How are your symptoms????

Re: New here...uncommon adeno symptoms?

Still the same; annoying intermittent left side pain. My period is still very light but now this month, my right hip and back were in a lot of pain 2 days prior to my period and off and on (more on than off) during. I feel like the lower half of my body is just sore!
