Symptoms Of Fibroid Uterus

Endometriosis Part 12 – Cardiovascular Symptoms of Endometriosis

As we mentioned in previous articles, during the last stage of the menstrual cycle normally a layer of endometriosis lining in the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood but instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body causing endometriosis. Endometriosis also reacts to hormonal signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, building up tissue, breaking it and eliminating it through menstrual period. In this article, we will discuss The effects of endometriosis on cardiovascular symptoms.

1. Breathlessness
Women with endometriosis may experience breathlessness caused by heavy blood flow that depletes the storage of iron and other necessary substances, resulting in less oxygen and nutrition needed to re-nourish the body’s cells as the heart has to work harder to pump blood. Intake of food with rich sources of iron such as spinach and broccoli during menstrual cycle is said to help, reduce, or get rid of this symptom.

2. Palpitation
Endometrial implants or adhesion on the liver caused by malfunction of the liver as it no longer secretes enough bile to the intestine as a result of high levels of bad cholesterol in the blood stream. As this problem progresses, cholesterol builds up on the arterial wall causing the heart to over-work, resulting in heart palpitations. Intake of flax seed oil is said to restore balance of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and reduce cholesterol as well as helping restore the normal function of the liver.

3. Giddiness and confusion
Giddiness is defined to have a reeling, lightheaded sensation, or dizziness. Women with endometriosis may experience dizziness due to insufficiency of oxygen levels in the blood stream that are vital for brain cells. Without enough oxygen to nourish its cells, the brain cannot function causing confusion as well as giddiness. It also caused by endometriosis that attach to the lung which interferes with lung function to absorb oxygen.

4. Hypertension
High blood pressure is always associated with heart disease. In case of women with endometriosis, it is caused by abnormal function of the liver which has been damaged by endometrial implants or adhesion. The damaged liver now cannot produce enough bile to help the digestive system to get rid of bad cholesterol from our body resulting in cholesterol building up as well as high blood pressure.

  3. QUESTION:
    I have had four ultrasound scans in 2 years and results, normal uterus, cysts, normal, fibroid is this normal
    Up until late 2004 my uterus was normal. Then I started having irregular periods, I think I miscarried and some pregnancy symptoms didn’t immediately disappear, I went to see a radiologist a few months later, he said I had functional cyst and referred me to a gynaecologist, the doctor did a thorought test and repeat scan and found my uterus perfectly normal, my periods stabilised and for some seven months didn’t have sex. Then I started having sex again, the last time my period was late by a cycle, and like the last time I started spotting when it returned. I decided it will get back to normal on its own… but when I had a bout of severe back pain I got worried and went to see a doctor (a different one…. he sent me for scanning and the result; “2.7cm x 2cm single fibroid, no fluid aroud the pouch of Douglas.” What is the meaning of this – Why did he mention this pouch of douglas? Can the fibroid go away the way the cyst went away or could there have been an error here?

    • ANSWER:
      the fibroid is not going to go away but it is nothing to be worried about either. fibroids are bening tumors of the muscle cells of the uterus and about 50% of women will develop them. Yours is small and you only have one, nothing much to be concerned about unless it is in the lining of your uterus and then it can cause spotting, but usually a small fibroid like this will not cause much problems at all. Just ignore the remark about the pouch of douglas, that is not significant to any of your issues. they usually mention whether there is or is not fluid in the pelvis-this fluid collects in an area called the pouch of douglas- it has nothing to do with your fibroid or periods. you may want to think about the pill to control your periods if they are bothering you.

  4. QUESTION:
    Large partially pedunculated fibroid leiomyoma 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 of the anterior uterus… HELP?
    In a way I can tell I’m blessed why? In 2008 I used to blame myself and others who caused a car accident that I was in. I lost so much after that accident not being able to have the very good health and physic I used to have. From 162 no I weight 210. I went to so many doctors after my accident because my neck and back was really in pain. I finally found a doctor who did thank lord give me hope that everything could go back to normal. Until the other day my chiropractors to finish my treatment cause my insurance almost with no balance, he told me that he will MRI my back. When they did they found and confirmed that I had a herniated disc L5-S1 that this accident had make worst because a previous chiropractor told me I had a disc problem before 3 days before the accident etc… But that MRI for my back shows a growing mass inside my pelvic. They send me for a pelvic ultrasound. Also the days of the MRI my tummy to the right side move so much that was crazy and I was extremely dizzy. Result came like that:

    Age: 26
    Sex: Female

    History: Pelvic pain with heavy menses.

    Finding: utilizing a full urinary bladder as an acoustic window, the pelvis was evaluated and the uterus is in a normal anteverted/anteflexed orientation measuring 8.4 x 9.8 x 8.0 cm. The uterus contains a very large anterior complex leiomyoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6 x 9.7 cm. The right and left adnexa are normal. There is no free fluid within the cul-de-sac.

    Impression: There is a large soft tissue mass involving the anterior uterus almost certainly representing a large partially pedunculated leiomymoma, which measures 10.2 x 8.6x 9.7 cm. This is an otherwise normal study.

    I had so many symptoms related to this now I realized when I make search, I though it was normal to have these symptoms or I was like that but I was in silence sick.

    • ANSWER:
      Fibroids are clumps of uterine extra tissue overgrowths, some do not cause any discomfort and the ones that are larger and that will need to be surgically removed through an incision like a c-section to basically go into the uterus . If you are 26 years old, and want children, make sure that they leave your ovaries, tubes and uterus intact and NOT TO REMOVE THEM and only remove the fibroids. However, if your doctor suggests that something be removed so the fibroids don’t come back and start growing again? Ask him what your options are. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor all the questions you have. Make a short list and take it with you to your appointment. Be ready with some questions.

      You will be OK. Have faith, and speak to someone at Social Security and start some benefits, you need to speak to a counselor, a dietician, and you need alot of support, emotional and medically. And try to have someone with you all the time, because you shouldn’t be alone in this.
