I'm 56, post menopausal. Started having lowback pain about a month ago after 500 mile drive in one day, then back again a week later. A chiropractic adjustment helped, but the next day it was worse and continued to worsen to the point where I can barely walk, get up and down etc. Even hurts lying down.
Went to the ER, was told it was a hemorragic ovarian cyst. Yet all the reading I've done doesn't add up to this, especially since I'm post menopausal, and since most of the pain is across my low back into hip. the pain is throbbing but constant and it's even hard to take a deep breath. I need a pain killer that works until I can find out what this is. Any suggestions?
Also, was told that these cysts go away on their own...is this true and is there some kind of general time frame on this?
