What are the different types of endometriosis?
Pain in endometriosis: The symptom that leads to a medical consult!
Endometriosis can cause very string pains (pelvic, during the menstruation, during sexual intercourse…) and because they are so debilitating, they can make the patients take very strong painkillers.
This recurrent pains will lead to a hypersensitization phenomenon (malfunction of the central nervous system) and a neuronal hyper excitability which is responsible for an amplification of the painful message and sensory hypersensitivity.
These mechanisms combined can cause a very painful and complex syndrome.
