leg and hip pain - endometriosis
I have been living with endo for over ten years now, and only recently found out that the leg and hip pain that I've been living with is one of the symptoms of endo. Can you please tell me why I suffer from leg and hip pain - almost always on the left side of my body.

Regards

This is not a usual sign of endometriosis. Pain is often referred from one area supplied by a set of nerves to another. So endometriosis in the abdomen can cause pain in the leg.
