Can Endometriosis Cause Hip Pain?

Many women experience menstrual disorders and pain, and even pain during sex. Women with this condition need to know about "Endometriosis". Endometriosis is the main culprit that triggers severe menstrual pain in women and is difficult to cure. It is even a significant cause of infertility in many women. Therefore, endometriosis may cause hip pain.

Why does endometriosis cause pain in the hip? 
Endometriosis is a painful, radiating condition caused by ectopic growth of the endometrium or invasion of the rectal wall. The radiating pain can easily affect other areas near the uterus. The hip is located at the base of the thigh, close to the uterus. Thus, endometriosis can cause pain in the hip.
Although the cause and pathogenesis of this disease are not clear to the medical community, endometriosis generally occurs because endometrial tissue grows in other locations outside the uterine cavity where it should not. When menstruation occurs, the ectopic endometrium is shed. But, the shed endometrium cannot be discharged out of the body, so the endometrium undergoes a process of necrosis, shedding, and bleeding as the body's hormone level drops. In the long run, it will cause local congestion and edema, leading to painful symptoms.
The main symptom of endometriosis is pain; the typical symptoms are secondary dysmenorrhea and progressive pain. Many women who suffer from it will find that the pain is usually located in the lower abdomen, lumbosacral and mid-pelvic region, sometimes radiating to the perineum, anus, and thighs. The pain usually occurs at the onset of menstruation and continues throughout the period. The severity of the pain is not necessarily proportional to the size of the lesion. 
A minority of patients experience the symptom of persistent pain in the lower abdomen that worsens during menstruation. However, another 27%-40% of patients have no signs of menstrual pain. Therefore, most endometriosis patients will have symptoms of pain, which usually appear or worsen during menstruation.
Approximately 70% of patients with endometriosis have different pain symptoms. The characteristics of the pain include two aspects: first, there are various manifestations, such as dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, pain during sexual intercourse, and painful bowel movements. Secondly, it is vaguely localized, often radiating to the lower back, inner thighs, and other areas.
Although patients with endometriosis may experience back pain and discomfort in the lower back, hip pain does not necessarily mean that the patients have endometriosis. Other diseases, such as urological diseases, can also cause hip pain. In addition, some patients who have stones and hydronephrosis may also experience low back pain. And patients with a history of surgery may have back pain and discomfort symptoms.
Endometriosis needs to be treated appropriately under the guidance of a doctor. The doctor will individualize the treatment according to the patient's specific situation. Those with mild symptoms and no severe intestinal manifestations can choose medication. Patients can choose to perform surgery if the condition is painful or if medication is ineffective. The disease can usually be cured, but it can easily recur. If the disease is not treated promptly and effectively, it may also lead to infertility and other conditions, which can seriously affect the patient's quality of life.
Patients can choose to take the traditional Chinese medicine Fuyan Pill. The advantage of TCM treatment is that it is suitable for patients. For example, patients do not need to perform surgeries, and the expense is low. Besides, patients can have little pain and get a fast recovery. At the same time, the medicine can eliminate gynecological tissue lesions, adjust menstruation, relieve pain, etc. In a word, it can benefit women troubled by endometriosis and the pain it causes.
