Endometriosis is a concern for many women, not only accompanied by menstrual abnormalities and abdominal pain but may also lead to hip pain. So, how does this hip pain come about?

Why does endometriosis cause symptoms of hip pain?


Firstly, the pathogenesis of endometriosis involves factors such as the implantation of endometrial cells, abnormal immune regulation, and endocrine dysfunction. Endometrial cells can be implanted outside the pelvic cavity through retrograde menstrual flow and lymphatic and venous dissemination pathways. When these ectopic endometrial tissues grow in the buttocks, periodic bleeding and inflammatory reactions occur with changes in the menstrual cycle, stimulating surrounding tissues and nerves and thereby causing pain.


Secondly, endometriosis may lead to pelvic adhesions and nerve compression. When the lesion affects the pelvic cavity, it can cause inflammation and fibrosis, leading to pelvic adhesions. These adhesions may involve the nerves and muscles of the hip, causing pain. In addition, the lesion may directly compress the nerves in the pelvic cavity, such as the sciatic nerve, leading to symptoms such as pain and numbness in the hip and lower limbs.


In addition, patients with endometriosis are often influenced by psychological factors. Long-term pain may lead to negative emotions such as anxiety and depression, and these psychological factors may exacerbate pain sensation through the neuroendocrine system while increasing the patient's sensitivity to pain, making mild pain more pronounced.


In summary, the causes of hip pain in patients with endometriosis are multifaceted, which may be related to implantation of ectopic endometrium, bleeding and inflammatory reactions, pelvic adhesions and nerve compression, and psychological factors. For these pains, timely diagnosis and treatment should be carried out to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.


However, it should be noted that the above content only explains the mechanism of pain caused by endometriosis, and the specific situation needs to be comprehensively judged based on individual differences and the complexity of the condition.


If you or someone around you suffer from endometriosis and experience symptoms such as hip pain. In that case, it is recommended to consult a professional doctor promptly to obtain an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment plans.


So, how to relieve this pain?


Firstly, patients should seek medical attention promptly and receive professional treatment. Doctors will develop personalized treatment plans based on patients’ specific situation, including medication, surgical, psychological, etc.


Drug therapy mainly involves the use of drugs such as progesterone, androgen derivatives, and gonadotropin-releasing hormone agonists to inhibit the growth of the endometrium and reduce bleeding from ectopic endometrium, thereby alleviating pain symptoms.


If a less irritating treatment is needed, the Fuyan Pill is a good choice. It can effectively eliminate inflammation, relieve pain, regulate endocrine function, improve the pelvic environment, and thus achieve the goal of treating endometriosis.


Surgical treatment is achieved by removing ectopic endometrial tissue and loosening pelvic adhesions. After surgery, Fuyan Pill can also be taken to consolidate the therapeutic effect.


Psychological therapy, on the other hand, helps patients alleviate negative emotions such as anxiety and depression through psychological counseling and counseling, and improves their tolerance to pain.


Meanwhile, patients can alleviate pain daily by maintaining good posture and avoiding prolonged sitting or standing. Engaging in appropriate exercise, such as yoga, walking, etc., can help relax muscles and relieve pain. Local pain and discomfort can also be relieved through hot compresses.


If you are a patient with endometriosis and experience symptoms of hip pain, do not be overly nervous and anxious. Seek medical attention promptly and actively cooperate with the doctor's treatment. It will alleviate the pain and improve the quality of life.
