so a while ago after being very diligent with my doctor, I had a CT Scan done on my abdomen. The results showed a cystic appearance on both of my ovaries. Being a General Practitioner, He just prescribed pain killers and birth control to help with the extreme pain I was having. Since he was a doctor I just listened and didn't ask any further questions. It helped for a while but now I have hit a wall.
I have had menstrual irregularities since I was 15. The pain would be so strong that I would vomit, become feverish and even pass out sometimes.
I am now 20 and my symptoms have changed quite a bit. I now have a steady constant pain throughout the month even when I am not on my period. Not severe. Kind of like a sharp stab, it lasts for a few seconds then goes away. This happens a few times a day. I have also noticed that my belly is a little bloated as well. I am usually very fit but I honestly don't have the energy to work out as often as I used to. My back is also in constant discomfort, some days worse than others. Its more like strong pressure and sometimes it will turn in to pain.
I don't know if this is related but I have also been experiencing problems in the gastro- intestinal area. I pass gas very frequently definitely more than normal and don't have very many bowel movements. I would assume that I am probably constipated
I'm planning on finally speaking to a gynecologist about the problems I am experiencing, but I would like to go prepared since I am a self pay. So not having insurance limits how many visits I can take since it gets pretty expensive.
Any suggestions on what this could be? I honestly believe it can't just be cysts
