Erythromelalgia, Endometriosis..any connection?

Hello everyone,

I was recently diagnosed with Endometriosis and I remember reading one of the posts on here about someone who had very intense periods, and flare ups in the feet tended to be worse during this time too. I am curious to know if my Erythromelalgia has any connection to my diagnoses of Endometriosis. Do any other ladies also experience the same thing?

Sorry for your struggles. I do not have endometriosis. I haven’t heard of there being a link between the two :woman_shrugging:

I also have endometriosis and erythromelalgia, though the EM came in my early 20’s, vs endo from my early teens. I suspect there isn’t a link, ( though it’s possible some of the gene variations governing pain have an influence on both, ) but rather that because 1 in 10 women have endometriosis, statistically it’s likely that some female EM sufferers will have both.

I feel for you though! They’re both quite painful enough on their own, let alone together.
