Endometriosis - Disability Claim

Endometriosis is a common chronic condition but is not often talked about. Endometriosis is a debilitating, stressful and painful condition experienced by women of reproductive age.  It happens when the tissue that lines the uterus grows in other parts of the body (usually the abdomen).  This misplaced tissue creates growths or lesions that are painful during a woman’s menstrual cycle.Endometriosis causes inflammation, scarring, and other painful symptoms.  It can also contribute to infertility or difficulty getting pregnant.
