Back pain is a suffering of modern civilization. Most people have a lower trunk musculature and they are working in a seated position most of the time during the day. This can cause muscle tension and lead to pain in the lower back. On top of that, joint wear, slipped discs, stress and psychological strain are also causes of low backache.
Endometriosis is a benign, sometimes painful growth of tissue of the endometrium. The presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity is one of the most common gynaecological diseases. Since female sex hormones have an important influence on the course of the disease, women are usually affected between puberty and menopause. After the menopause, the symptoms can subside or even disappear.
The most common benign growths that occur in the muscle layer of the uterus (myoma) can develop in any woman. It is suspected that the female hormone oestrogen also plays an important role in this process, as does genetic predisposition.
Endometriosis and fibroids are often asymptomatic. Sometimes symptoms that my present are abnormal uterine bleeding, bleeding between periods, prolonged spotting, as well as heavy or painful period pain, fullness in the lower abdomen and pelvic area, enlarged uterus or abdomen, frequent urination, painful bowel movements, pain during sex, lower back pain, infertility, multiple miscarriages or early labour.
