advice desperately needed

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello i have been experiencing lower left pain since Christmas day which i put down to ovulation pain as i have suffered before. However the pain became worse and last night at 4.30am i woke with intense pain and sickness with a cold sweat i didnt know what to do with myself. I rang out of hours who sent an ambulance. In hospital i was give IV parecetamol and anti sickness meds which helped. My bloods came back normal i have no water infection or temperature or suspected pregnancy. The female doctor was of no help. She told me there was no mass in my tummy and everything serious had been ruled out so discharged me. Infact she said it could be a muscle strain!! I had a scan in March this year as had pain but no cysts were found. My period is due around 6/7 January. I have been told to make another appointment with my GP tomorrow to perhaps organise a scan. I feel sore still and sick and ive had a poke around my tummy and can feel a lump on mu left side. Im quite worried about it. Im 37 and usually fit and well. Can anyone give me some advice? Thanks Faye x

    Hi Faye, 

    Like you I'm usually fit and healthy. I'm 31 and have been getting pain since Oct time. It's ranges from near my belly button to my side and my into my back. 

    The doctors can't feel anything and I've had bloods twice, urine tests and an ultrasound but all have come back clear. 

    I am going back to the doctor on Tuesday as still having pains. 

    I would go back to your GP and get another opinion.

    Hope things go ok. X

    Both your symptoms are like mine though mine is right side. All my tests also came back clear including ultrasound in August but I paid for a CT scan in Nov and a cyst was found! It is yet to be dealt with and I ended up at A & E Xmas night exactly the same symptoms as you had Faye!

      Highly recommend a transvaginal scan as said above it gives a clear view and that is what diagnosed me affectively. I had been wrongly diagnosed several times but as soon as I had that I then got put straight on the waiting list for surgery.

      The pain and sickness can be from a cyst twisting or being infected so definaty seek further medical advice.

    Hi Faye 

    I to have lower pelvic pain bit like a period pain and sharp pains in my right side that shoot down my groin and leg and around my back. somedays is ok others it can be really bad.Saw my gp in Nov who said he could feel a lump possibly a cyst on my right ovary. Referred me for a ultrasound scan and a to see a consultant. Did a CA125 test that was all ok. When i had my scan she said all was ok could not see anything. Saw consultant she poked and prodded inside and out and said there was nothing there. Told me i was prob constipated rolleyes. She suggested linseed on my breakfast. She told me my scan was all good but it was inconclusive as they could not see my right ovary clearly. I am still in pain some days worse than others. i am going back to my gp to see what he suggests next. 

    I hope you get sorted soon

    I had similar symptoms. This sounds like a cyst to me. I agree with Tazchurch-my GP recommended a transvaginal ultrasound as well and that caught the cyst on my left ovary. It was small enough that thankfully after 2 cycles it went away on its own. If yours is small enough that will probably happen with you. After the ultrasound they should be able to tell you the size and type of your cyst and you can plan from there. Best of luck.
