I have previously posted in the Ovarian Cyst forum as I was sure my symptoms were pretty text book for a troublesome ovarian cyst, however doctors (gp's & hospital staff) seem unconvinced. So I wondered if anyone could help who has perhaps had something similar or knows of anyone else who has, I would really appreciate any kind of input.
I have now been unwell for 8 weeks and have the following unchanged symptoms:
Swollen lower abdomen (10inch increase and worsens after food/drink)
A dull ache in the lower left and right quadrants of the abdomen
Occasional (4-5 times a day) sharp pains in the same area
Feeling full and uncomfortable after small amounts of food/drink
Uncontrollable shaking and teeth chattering
Erratic periods (I'm on the combined pill)
General feeling of unwell, including dull grey skin and thinning hair.
So far I have seen my gp numerous times. I have been to hospital 3 times. I've had 2 ultrasounds (abdomen & pelvis), numerous blood tests and urine tests and all have come back clear. I have so far been told it was probable ovarian cysts, urinary infection, kidney infection and appendicitis. These have all been subsequently ruled out.
I now have no idea what is left to do. My gp has said a CT scan is not possible due to the exposure to radiation on the abdomen area as I am a 27 year old female (I imagine this is related to possible fertility problems).
Thank you if you have managed to get this far through my ramble. I have now been house bound for 2 months and I am just extremely fed up! I would really appreciate any help or advice on what to do next or any ideas on what this might be.
