I am 19 years old and both my mother and grandmother have had ovarian cysts chronically, however they have not had pain like I am having. Starting weeks ago; my period was late (was not pregnant), I had PMS cramps but no period, I had nausea every few days and a significantly lessened appetite. I knew I had an ovarian cyst at this point through self diagnoses from my family members experiences and research I had done. I found most go away no problem so I brushed it off. Until yesterday. I woke up early to excrutiating pain in my lower abdomen and intense nausea and pain when I bore down even just to pee. I went to the ER where CT scans and an ultrasound determined I have 2 cysts, one on each ovary. One is about 1.3 cm the other is 2 cm. I had no free floating fluid in my abdomen so I did not burst any. They gave me motrin, told me to follow up with a gyn, and sent me on my way. I do have an appointment with my gyn for a couple days from now but although the pain has lessened, the intensity varies throughout the day. My heating pad is the only relief I can find but I work 6 hour shifts on my feet and have little relief then. Please help me lessen this pain!
