I've never posted anything like this before but I'm starting to feel at my wits end and was hoping to see if anyone is experiencing the same and can provide some help.
I went to the doctors beginning of February with a localised pain in my lower left abdomen and pain during sex. It quickly just went worse, the pain was so severe, especially when I walked, but it was always constant. I started to get my period all the time (I'm on the contraceptive pill so it was usually quite regular) and they are extremely heavy, having to change tampons and pads every 15-30 mins.
I had an ultra sound scan which showed a small cyst on my left ovary and thought this might be the problem. I got a follow up and woman doing the ultrasound told me she could see unusual fluid in my pelvis but no cyst on left ovary. When I properly got results back they found a tiny cyst on my right side (there's no pain at all in right side)
I was put on pain killers and was referred to gynaecologist 2 months ago.
Last week, I took new blood tests that showed I have became anaemic.
The pain has gotten so bad I had to quit my job because I was constantly being sick and defer from university.
I am now on 8 tablets of tramadol a day and practically bed bound because walking too much is unbearable and sometimes makes my chest hurt and I'm being told there is nothing else they can do for me.
I need to wait another 22 weeks for an appointment with gynaecology because my symptoms aren't severe enough and they suspect it's just a cyst.
Can a cyst cause this much pain and blood? Or can this be something else? Is anyone else experiencing the same and have any advice on how to force my gp to try and excelerate the process?
Sorry I know this is very long winded but I appreciate you reading. I am 20 years old and this is literally ruining my life and making me so depressed and frustrated. I'm met to be going back to university next month and I don't want to drop out and I also don't want to start getting addicted to pain killers. Any replies will be helpful!
