[Management of endometriosis pain : Stage-based treatment strategies and clinical experience].


Endometriosis is associated with various types of intense pain. In addition to nociceptive pain, there is also a nociplastic reaction with central sensitization. Atypical symptoms such as acyclic lower abdominal pain, radiating pain, non-specific bladder and intestinal complaints or even depression are frequent as are classic cyclical complaints such as severe dysmenorrhea, cyclical lower abdominal pain, dyspareunia, dysuria and dyschezia. In cases of a diverse range of symptoms, patients often consult not just gynecologists but specialists from other disciplines (e.g., internal medicine, gastroenterology, orthopedics, pain therapy, psychology).
