Hey guys, I'm 22 and I've been having a pretty horrible month. 3 weeks ago I went to the ER because I started to have horrible back pain (lower and in the middle right near my kidneys) and abdominal pain on my right side which they did a CT scan for and found out I had a dermoid cyst on my left ovary which is about 2.8 cm which they said could be causing some of my pain. I thought that was weird because most of my pain is on the right. I've also had leg pain and tingling down my legs all the way to my ankles. Along with the CT scan they also did a urine sample and said I had a UTI. They told me to follow up with my gynecologist and sent me on my way. I finished the round of antibiotics that the hospital gave me and didn't feel a bit better. I saw my gynecologist and he sent me for an ultrasound so he could get a better look at the dermoid.
Because I've been in so much pain I figured that there was a chance I still had a uti so I went to an urgent care and they gave me bactrim, which also didn't help ease my pain. 3 days into my antibiotic I got a call from the doctor and said there was actually no bacteria in my pee so now it's back to guessing what's wrong with me and I'm starting to go crazy.
For about two weeks now I have been experiencing a new symptom - the bottom of my right breast hurts and the pain continues all the way from my breast to my armpit and all the way down my arm. I did a breast exam and felt a lump so now I'm terrified. I haven't felt good in about a month and I'm absolutely miserable. Does anyone have any experience with breast pain like this / any of the other symptoms I've been having? I have to follow up with my gynecologist soon and I'll ask him to check it out but I'm just looking for some answers to keep my mind at ease.
