So the story of my ovarian cyst pain goes back about 4 months. All of a sudden one day I just began having aching in the left side of my abdomen. Of course I have anxiety and freak out worrying I have colon cancer ( not probable, I'm 25) went to the dr and she said I probably had gastritis. Took meds and nothing worked. Had my period and the pain went away for about 2-3 weeks. Yay!
Well the pain came back and now in addition to the abdominal pain I had lower back and groin pain. Held off going to the dr until one day I realized I had blood when wiping after I had a #2. A panic attack and a dr. Visit later I was diagnosed with hemorrhoids. Lovely. Still had the pain but just stuck it out.
Finally went back in and my dr decided to do an ultrasound because of the terrible pain I would have when sitting. Couldn't sit on the couch or anywhere. Laying flat was my only option.
After my ultrasound I finally found out I have a simple cyst on my left ovary! At least I had a diagnosis. My only concern is I worry when the pain radiates into the middle and upper part of my left side.
I check my feces whenever I go because of worries of there being a colon problem and not just the cyst. So long story short.....
Has anyone else gone crazy worrying their pain is something else?!?
I feel like a crazy person!
Any comments are greatly appreciated
