Hello, I'm 31 and have had a severe bloated stomach for about 2 months now and a sort of cramp feeling mainly at the top half of my stomach underneath my breasts. the top half of my stomach that is so bloated and hard as a rock. Went to my GP told me it was IBS and to try taking buscupan for 2 weeks. Took for a week and nothing. Was changing so went back to my GP and was referred to the nurse. She checked my stomach took blood and urine samples. Bloods came back fine. Took pregnancy test which was negative and has my period as normal. Then was referred for an ultrasound and all they said was there was a lot of fluid in my stomach. So was then referred back to my GP and was told that they had a consultant have another look at my ultrasound images and said was a 13cm cyst and as I was in alittle bit of pain was prescribed some codeine. So had more bloods taken for the CA125 which came back all normal but my GP still referred my to the hospital. So I met with the gynaecology team this week and they are booking me in for a ct scan within the next 3 weeks. When I asked the consultant about the cyst he said he wasn't sure as the ultrasound was very vague. Then on Friday I woke up and had severe pain on the right side on my stomach, called the docs and was told I might jus be having some a flar up and to continue taking the codeine. This was in the afternoon and by late afternoon I couldn't take the pain anymore it was like a tight cramping that came in waves on the right side on the upper stomach and was sent home from work. Went back in for a emergency app with my GP who felt my stomach and said he will prescribe me some stronger painkillers (tramadol) and if the pain had not decreased by 10pm that eve to go to a+e. The pain isnt as bad and my tummy still feels sore so I'm jus waiting on the ct scan
Apologies for the essay just wanted to know if anyone has had the same thing, as people I know who have had ovarian cysts have had lower abdomen pains and not the pains so high up!!
