Endometriosis is a very common condition among women. In the United States alone, there are about 7 million women who have been diagnosed with endometriosis. Although some percentage of endometriosis patients do not feel any pain because of the condition, it may cause severe pain to many.
Most endometriosis patients deal with pelvic pain and painful sexual intercourse. However, only a minor percentage of women with the condition develop any back pain. In some cases, women do develop spinal pain, which can radiate along the vertebrae in severe cases.
Endometriosis is caused by endometrial tissue that has implanted itself and has begun to grow in unusual places in and around the reproductive system. The tissue is normally found in the uterus. It thickens and prepares itself for implantation of a fertilized egg.
When no fertilization occurs, the tissue simply sloughs off during the menstrual cycle, and leaves the body. But, it is theorized that sometimes the tissue that has broken off, instead of leaving the body, moves to different parts of the body and implants itself. The most common regions where it implants are the ovaries, Fallopian tubes, bowel, bladder, and even the rectum.
