Dear ladies, any advice/help/thoughts, very gratefully received.
About a year ago I had intermittent groin discomfort - not pain. The GP said she thought it was muscular as when she moved my leg at certain way it hurt more. So glad of that news, I went my merry way.
However, over last couple of months I have decided to get fit and so started short burst of 'power walking'. This caused excruciating pain in the hip, which I ignored and carried onwalking. The pain went but then came back in both hips as a dull ache, but was accompanied by the groin pain again in left groin. Saw another GP who said it seemed like ovarian pain to her.
Just had ultrasound, and she did not give me any info but said to her assistant, LO (left ovary I assumed 5 point something) and RO (2 point something). She would not tell me if anything there but 3 days later GP calls to arrange an appointment. By now I have convinced myself I am dying so told GP I couldn't wait a week to get results and she rang me back to say, RO has some small cysts but LO was 'bulky' and not sure what that was so needed to refer me for a scan.
In the meantime, I am going quietly mad and worried to death. Since seeing GP pain on both sides seems to be worse (but only when I think about it!!!!), I have lower back pain, but have sciattica anyway, but no other symptoms. Anybody any idea what a bulky ovary is? I am 50 by the way and not had a period for 3 - 4 months and defo menopausal. Please help. thanks in advance. x
