Hi everyone, I am just wondering if I am alone with these types of symptoms. To make a long story short, my left ovarian dermoid cyst (5cm at the time) was discovered by accident when I had an ultrasound done to check on my 2 month pregnancy which was in March of 2013. I had no symptoms at all. The docs wanted to do a watch and wait approach. Moving forward to January 2015, I started having panic attacks and pain in the left side of my pelvic area. The panic attacks got worse and so did the pain in the left pelvic area. I started having terrible left sided throbbing chest and back pain, heartburn, left sided ulq abdominal pain, terrible left flank pain racing and pounding heart and I could not eat anything without feeling like I was about to die. A change in my diet helped quite a bit but I am still having ulq problems along with the pelvic pain over a year later. I had all the tests done for my heart, an endoscopy and colonoscopy and blood work but everything came back normal. CA-125 test also came back normal. The only thing that was found was the left dermoid cyst that is now double the size at 10cm. I constantly feel like I'm going to drop dead by just standing up because the pain from my left pelvic area goes right up to my chest on the left side only. Is this normal? Has anyone else experienced this? I finally got a surgery date from my gyno May 5th to remove this terrible forsaken thing! Thank goodness!
