I have had a strange episode. And I'm just wondering if anyone has had similar symptoms that can give me an insight to what may be the issue.
I was diagnosed with PCOS and endometriosis in 2013 and have had 2 laparoscopic surgeries since.
Sorry for the long in depth description but this is what's been happening:
I have been extremely constipated for the past 2 weeks or so. I finally had a 'normal' bowel movement on the morning of 4th March - which then turned into a loose bowel movement. This just so happened to be the first day of my menstrual period also.
I got in my car to drive to work and shortly after i got severe stomach/ pelvis pains to the point i had to turn around to go home. On my way home i had to pull over as the pain was so intense i was vomiting. I was shaky, cold but sweating profusely.
When i got home i ran to the toilet and produced a watery bowel movement (I didn't need to go again after that). At the same time i was still in severe pain and felt like i was going to pass out & vomit it was so bad. I couldn't walk or hardly move and all i could do was lay on the floor in front of the bathroom. I kept feeling like i needed to urinate (I had actually though a few days before i was getting a UTI as i permanently felt like i needed to wee, and i had a constant stinging sensation) but not much was happening when i tried.
Anyway i ended up calling my mum as 2 hours had passed and the pain wasn't subsiding, and had actually moved to my lower back.
Throughout the whole episode i was also getting sharp shooting pains in which felt like my urethra.
When she arrived she thought it was best to call an ambulance as I was clearly not in a good way. (Still shaking, sweating and in a lot of pain, vomiting from the pain).
5 minutes before the paramedics arrived the pain literally stopped. I felt so stupid when they arrived, as other than feeling a bit weak, I felt as though nothing had just happened.
They didn't take me to Hospital as they thought it was just a bug, but i have had gastro before and it was nothing like what i had just experienced.
They recommended i follow up with my GP, that afternoon, which i did.
So my GP took a urine sample for a UTI and pregnancy, which were both negative.
He referred me for an ultrasound as he suspected a ruptured ovarian cyst or torsion.
I had the ultrasound done today and i was able to view the report through my work. They have noted that there were no sign of a ruptured cyst, but evidence of poly cystic ovaries, ovaries normal size and no other issues.
Since the 4th i have had a constant dull ache in my right side, which feels like my ovary. And every now and again sharp stabbing pains. I had dull aches and pains every now and then in my ovaries before, but it feel more constant and obvious since.
Can someone please tell me I am not going crazy and that it wasn't a bug that caused all of this! I feel a bit annoyed that I went through so much pain and paid so much money for the ultrasound for them to find nothing! I want to ask my GP to do further tests when i go back for the results but am not sure what this could be related to?
Thank you in advance!
