Does anyone else experience pain after exercising or being on your feet for long periods of time?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I am really new to all of this. After numerous diagnoses which all turned out to be incorrect I am trying to figure out what is normal pain in my body and what is caused by the endo. Yesterday I did some exercising and then was on my feet most of the day doing meal prep by the end of it I had an awful pain in my back that was shooting down my leg. It was a horrible pain. Has anyone else ever experienced that? 

Thanks!

    I find that if I am on my feet for a long time my pain gets worse. Cannot explain it unfortunately and I just put up with it at the moment. It causes problems when going out (like I did last week while on holiday). I just resort to the painkillers and heatbag. Sorry I can't help anymore than that but I have found on here that usually someone has experienced the same or similar so you don't feel on your own and they may even have suggestions on how to help.

    Hi - sharp pain radiating down your leg is a definitely an Endo symptom.  Suffered it regularly until I agreed to TAH/BSO.  (I had grade 4 Endo)

    Like everyone said that is a common issue with Endo. I work in retail and I'm on my feet 8-10 hrs and by the end of the day my back kills me. It's a lovely side effect of this disease

    I havent been diagnosed with it yet, but its suspected as im having all the symptoms and both my cousins have it. Im a dog groomer and im on my feet all day running up stairs and my back kills and i get the shooting pains in the leg.

    Recently though ive found even just walking short distances can make my symptoms so much worse.
