Hi all, really hope someone can help me!
A few years ago, I started having excruciating pain during my periods, sti test was negative, ultrasound showed nothing of concern. It lasted about a year and went away. 13 months ago I started getting the same trouble, again every test was negative, was told possible endometriosis and to monitor.
On dec 15th 2014, after my period I developed pain in my left abdomen, by my ovary. The pain got more severe, it felt like a knotting twisting pain, I had backache, hip pain, nausea, dizzyness and lightheaded ness. The pain kept increasing and I was referred to a ob/gyn and I paid privately to see him.
He examined me and told me he felt a cyst on my left ovary and my uterus was deviated to the right because of the cyst. I was referred for an urgent CA125 and ultrasound.
I had both, with the ultrasound being both internal and external. The results went back to my GP who told me that neither ovary could be seen.
During this time my pain had got a lot worse, it was very sudden and severe, making me feel like I was going to vomit or pass out, severe hip pain and all other previous symptoms. I also can't wear anything apart from leggings now, tight clothes cause the excruciating pain, as well as doing too much, ie I'm a hairdresser and after a few cuts I'm in agony, hence I'm not currently working for anyone and self employed to help this.
Today I had my appt with my ob/gyn. I felt that he couldn't give me any time. He wasn't interested in my symptoms or how severe the pain had become. He told me I have no gynae issue, after a very quick examination and have me IBS tablets? He had no reason as to where the supposed cyst has gone. I saw him on the NHS this time, instead of private and I feel that he was annoyed by that and gave me the tablets just to get me out of his hair as I can't afford to pay.
Has anyone been told they have a cyst before and then told actually they didn't and had IBS? I'm so confused!
