Ladies, I do NOT know where to turn to. At what I first thought to be something going on with my brain, I've had many tests and finally a scan showed an enlarged ovary with 2 cysts. Before this was found, I had noticed my cycles were getting longer, from my usual 24 days to 31 days. My last period was normal, then a week after my period ended, I had breakthrough type bleeding for 4 days...and in all the times I've had my period, this has never happened to me, even during stressed moments of my life.
Then, it took 40 days, since my last period, for my period to start again, and boy is it painful. Never had abdominal cramps like this. I've also been bleeding heavy with some blood clots. I was changing my tampon ever few hours...My periods have always been light.
That's not the only thing though. A few days before my breakthrough bleeding, I started having panic attacks out of the blue, severe depression a.d anxiety, to the point that I would lay in bed, crying for hours.THIS IS NOT ME! I've never been this emotionally unstable. It got to a point that I became suicidal, and that's when I told my husband and he took me to the hospital. They said it was just anxiety and prescribed me xanax. I mean, we were on vacation in Spain and I was lying on the beach crying!! Crying at the beach, for Christ's sake!!! That's when I told my husband about my suicidal thoughts and we left Spain earlier than intended. I told my husband I wanted to be committed for Pysch evaluation, but he knew this wasn't me. He knew it had to be something else.
I don't have a history of mental disorders, and I've mostly been emotionally strong. Then I had this sonogram and viola...there it was, an enlarged left ovary and 2 cysts.
Has ANYONE ever had this happen with cysts and an enlarged ovary? I'm more worried about my mental state than my ovary but I'm wondering if there is a link, I'm having some kind of hormonal imbalance?
I feel war m all the time, crying one minute, being a bitch the next minute, chills up my body but mostly down my left leg, pain in lower back, and I feel crazy, too. The symptoms go on. I have an appointment to see a gynecologist but that's not for another few weeks. Can anyone relate?
I'm 28, I don't take contraceptives and only ever did once for only 8 months, I'm not pregnant, my blood work all looks good, scans of other organs look great...what gives. I'm at the end of my rope, here. I'm scared.
