Thanks for writing to us.
The endometriosis is not likely to affect the spine. But endometriosis can be associated with a chronic pelvic pain. The pain in the buttock upto the foot is likely to be due to a nerve root irritation. Consulting a neurologist will be helpful.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
