What are your risk factors for endometriosis. Take this endometriosis quiz to find out your likelihood of having or developing endometriosis.

What is Endometriosis?

In absolute layman's terms, it's when the tissue that grows inside the uterus (endometrial tissue) is found outside the uterus..
Now think about it.. there's a lot that goes on with these cells on a regular monthly schedule (if you're lucky).. from getting ready to host a baby & dispelling the blood when the egg does not become fertilized.. this happens to all endometrial tissue, both inside and outside the uterus..
Typically it is usually found on the lower abdomen but can be found anywhere within the body cavity.

Multiple Chemical Sensitivity – also referred to as MCS – is also known as Chemical Injury, Chemical Sensitivity, Environmental Illness (E.I.), and Multiple Allergy…
Multiple Chemical Sensitivity; in broad terms it means an unusually severe sensitivity or allergy-like reaction to many different kinds of pollutants including solvents, VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds like paint), perfumes, petrol, diesel, smoke, “chemicals” in general and... often encompasses problems with regard to pollen, house dust mites, and pet fur & dander.

Multiple chemical sensitivity unlike true allergies – where the underlying mechanisms of the problem are relatively well understood widely accepted, is generally regarded as “idiopathic” – meaning that it has no known mechanism of causation & it’s processes are not fully understood.

The problem here is made more difficult still, due to the variable nature of Multiple Chemical Sensitivity from one patient to the next & this often makes treatment with conventional medicine & practices ineffective or inappropriate; for most sufferers with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, the avoidance of pollutants/toxicants is the key.

What CAN be said about defining Multiple Chemical Sensitivity – and in order to help the patient decide whether they truly have MCS or another allergy-related illness – is that the following deciding criteria apply to Multiple Chemical Sensitivity:

The patient exhibits problems – often an allergy-like reaction – to both large – often extremely low levels of irritants/toxicants/triggers : other individuals present at the same time may be unable to detect anything at all or anything unusual or out of the ordinary.

The problem is ongoing (ie. chronic) and not a “one-off” event. The same symptoms are reproducible with repeated exposure to the same triggers. The patient is affected by many different triggers. The patient improves when triggers are absent

Fibromyalgia (Fibro, FM, FMS) is a misunderstood, misdiagnosed and commonly unrecognized chronic condition. It causes widespread muscle pain with 18 very specific tender points.

See a compilation of symptoms by Devin Starlanyl, listed below

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME)

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) is a medical condition similar to fibromyalgia and share many symptoms, however there are also viable differences. The primary symptom in patients with CFS/ME is fatigue with pain as a secondary symptom. While FMS patients have fatigue, its primary symptom is pain with the 18 tender points. [See a compilation of symptoms listed below] CFS is more than just b...eing tired; it is exhausting, so much so that it interferes with patients’ lives. It causes difficulty with both professional and personal duties and responsibilities up to the point of severe disability and constantly being bedridden. Like Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME does not have a known cause. Links have be made by researchers to the sympathetic nervous system and the HPA axis; genes that impact your body’s reaction to injury and stress. Some researchers believe in some cases of CFS/ME it is an abnormal reaction of common infections. Links have been made to the Esptein Barr virus, enteroviruses, human herpesvirus 6 & Lyme diseases, tho these links are inconsistent. Recent studies suggest that the immune system may be active in the body as it is constantly fighting an infection that is not really there. The latest research has made links between CFS/ME and retrovirus XMRV (xenotropic Moloney murine leukemia virus-related virus), but has been unable as of yet be able to establish certainty.
