Endometriosis and Fibromyalgia with Dr. Jessica Drummond
Endometriosis is a condition where tissue similar to the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus — the endometrium — grows outside the uterus. It's one of the most common causes of pelvic pain and infertility. Many women with fibromyalgia who are experiencing pelvic pain, painful periods, and more may also be dealing with endometriosis. Listen in as Tami interviews Dr. Jessica Drummond about what endometriosis is, how to distinguish between fibromyalgia pain and endometriosis, and how she addresses endometriosis in her clinic. You may have fibromyalgia, but that doesn't mean all of your pain is only fibromyalgia. Conditions like endometriosis are very treatable. Addressing these other causes of pain help to lower your overall fibromyalgia pain levels.

But the problem with that is that just masks the symptoms and that could potentially put someone at greater risk of struggling with infertility later because they never had the disease addressed appropriately from the beginning.” (21:06) “Start with digestion, due it collaboratively with pelvic floor physical therapy so there is a lot of relaxation around the pelvic floor muscles, mindfulness strategies, cognitive behavioral therapy around pain management and living your life, immune system function… really looking at each physiological system one at a time starting with digestion and moving through the others.” (30:22) “75% of women being derailed, to me, is a huge loss.
