I’m currently at my wits end and wondering if anybody else recognised my symptoms....
A few weeks ago I started getting an aching pain in my lower abdomen with lower back ache. It started in waves but has gotten worse and I’ve now been in agony for 2 days with it constantly getting worse, especially if I cough, make sudden movement or press to the left of my belly button.
I have a history of ovarian cysts, irregular periods and I’m trying to conceive. However, negative pregnancy tests have ruled that out and I’ve been to the GP who has confirmed it’s not a UTI. However, they did find a trace of blood in my urine today. They’ve referred me for an ultrasound (wait time is 6 weeks) and sent my urine off for analysis but won’t treat me in the meantime (it’ll take a week for results).
I’m completely exhausted and taking various painkillers every day, none of which get rid of the pain (it just turns to a dull ache).
It’s only down my left side, from my hip up to my ribs now (originally started in my pelvis) and I can barely stand up straight. I’m also extremely bloated and urinating more (no burning pain though). I don’t have a fever, blood pressure normal but heart rate was fast when the GP checked my obs. I just don’t know what to do as the doctors are in no rush but I’m stuck at home every day in agony, it’s keeping me awake at night and I’m trying to look after a toddler :-(
Does anybody recognise any of this?
