Hello. First of all I'd like to apologize for my English, but its not my first language and i hope you will understand.
Today, when I came back from school I really needed to pee, and I did so. After, my lower stomach started hurting really bad, I got really scared, I thought it might be period cramps, but they're never THAT bad - I barely walked back to my room and lied down. I felt like I'm about to pass out and puke, which fortunately didn't happen. After an hour when the pain didn't stop I decided to go and see a gynecologist, since I thought something might be wrong around that area. The doctor did an ultrasound, which didn't really show anything, except I found out there might be a cyst, but he's not sure since it's not proper and told me to come back tomorrow morning when my bladder is full, so we can repeat the procedure. After I came back home I decided to take a pill and go to sleep. When i woke up, my chest started hurting really bad, and since that it just keeps getting worse. Then it was just the stomach and lower belly pain, but then it also became shoulder pain, and that's where i got worried, so I went to the hospital. The doctor there wasn't really worried about me and just checked my heart rate and gave me some prescription pills, that don't seem to work as well. I am really not able to walk or move, It hurts when i try to breathe a little deep or roll to my side, I'm not even able to sleep, i dont know what to do to feel better anymore. Someone please help me know what it might be, I'm scared I won't be able to get up tomorrow and see the doctor again.

I think your best bet is to wait for your scan tomorrow and the results to see if it provides any clues.Abdominal pain can be caused by many things. When I had my ultrasound, they scanned all my abdominal organs and found nothing. A ovarian cyst was suggested but they found no evidence of that.
If nothing is found in your ultrasound, you could also ask for a urine test since the pain started after you urinated. If that is negative as well, maybe request a colonoscopy to see if it is a bowel problem since you have lower abdominal pain. Is your lower abdominal pain located on one side only or does it move about? In the meantime, try painkillers to help with the pain.
By the way, I think you English is great! Where are you from?
Ask to see a Urologist who deals with bladder and urinal problems since the problem started upon urination...
Next time you go to the ER demand they do a ct scan and any other test and not send you home until they find out what is wrong, they wills end anyone home that they can get away with sending home. Also if you are in need of stronger pain medication let them know as well, and your doctor too. It has become a nightmare to get proper pain treatment in the ER or from doctors today due to the whole fake crisis on pain meds. It is not pain meds that is the crisis it is illegal drugs. Tell them that their care is unacceptable and that you will not leave until they do the scans and all they can to fine out the reason for your pain. Cysts can cause alot of bad symptoms as well, do you have a history of ovarian cysts when you ovulate? While in the ER ask what specialist are on duty and ask to see the one who is closest to your symptoms, say a urologist or OB/GUN. Also tell them if you are having any kind of chest pain, they can do blood work to rule out some heart issues, no matter your age. Are you on the BC pill, did they check for blood clots in the lungs etc...If they do a ct scan as ct o have it done with contrast. If your doc appt isn't soon enough call the doc office and say it is an emergency and you need to see someone now. Today we must demand our care, be the squeaky wheel, docs see so many patients and if you are willing to leave they are willing to let you go. Just say No. Ask for more testing and tell them you are scared, it feels very bad etc.....not sure of your age but I hope this helps, fight for your rights as a patients, there is a patient bill of rights, read it. Good luck !!
