Ovarian Cyst Rupture And Shaking

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    do you think heavy activity could shake a ovarian cyst to disburse?
    i havent had a period since september,and just 3 weeks ago i started a daycare job and i have done alot of strenous activity.my ovary with the cyst is cramping and i feel like it almost wants to become a period. i just dont know. what do you think is happening?

    • ANSWER:
      Yes, strenous activity can cause your ovarian cyst to rupture, especially if your ovarian cyst is larger than 4cm.

      I have had bilateral ovarian cysts for over 11 years and whenver I have had a cyst larger than 4cm I have been advised by my doctor and gynaecologist to not have sexual intercourse or do any strenous activity as it can cause a large ovarian cyst to rupture.

      I would recommend that you consult with your doctor/gynaecologist about this and to see what they say.

      Good luck :)

      Also I would suggest a Syrian hamster. That includes Teddy Bear, Fancy, Black Bear, Golden Hamsters.

  3. QUESTION:
    My leg has a tremor, what is it?
    I have gone to my PCP and a Neurologist. I’ve had MRI’s, nerve conduction test and no answers. My right leg shakes if I’m on my tip toes, anxious, pressing on the gas pedal or the brakes. My anxiety level is high and my eye twitches every once in a while. Is it all in my head. The only thing my doctor said was that there is slight change in the Myelin tissue. Any thoughts?

    • ANSWER:
      have been having similar problems. was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy. Given seizure medication.
      make them keep checking. it probably isn’t “all in your head”.

      Once was having pelvic pain. went to doctor for 2 years. told me “it was in my head”. ended up being an ovarian cyst that ruptured and almost killed me. made sure to go and see the doctor afterwards to let him know that it was real!!!!

  4. QUESTION:
    Ruptured ovarian cyst??
    I was feeling bad for about a month but the last week I was feeling actually sick. I went to the doctor and they told me I had an ovarian cyst that had ruptured. I didn’t feel any pain at all. I was just nauseous and would wake up in uncontrollable shakes. Should there have been pain? I know everyone is different but this is the top symptom. How long will my nausea last?

    • ANSWER:
      No, there shouldnt have been any pain,since ruptured ovarian cysts often dont hurt.
      Your nausea will last for 3-4 days…

  6. QUESTION:
    Help! I don’t know what’s causing this pain… ?
    At the moment I’m experiencing a pain in my lower right abdomen, I’ve had this pain before and it was an ovarian cyst. I’m trying to determine if it’s my appendix or an ovarian cyst like last time. I wanted to know if the pain of appendicitis so unbearable that I would not be able to tolerate it? If it’s merely the abdominal pain is it unlikely it’s my appendix? And any ideas to help the pain?

    • ANSWER:
      Abdominal pain can be many things, you should get it checked by a doctor. I found the following under prevention.com symptom checker. However as I said it can be other things, and the best thing to do is go to a doctor.

      Good Luck and Get Well

      The symptoms of appendicitis vary. It can be hard to diagnose appendicitis in young children, the elderly, and women of childbearing age.

      Typically, the first symptom is pain around your belly button. (See: abdominal pain.) The pain may be vague at first, but becomes increasingly sharp and severe. You may have reduced appetite, nausea, vomiting, and a low-grade fever.

      As the inflammation in the appendix increases, the pain tends to move into your right lower abdomen and focuses directly above the appendix at a place called McBurney’s point.

      If the appendix ruptures, the pain may lessen briefly and you may feel better. However, once the lining of the abdominal cavity becomes inflammed and infected (a condition called peritonitis), the pain worsens and you become sicker.

      Abdominal pain may be worse when walking or coughing. You may prefer to lie still because sudden movement causes pain.

      Later symptoms include:

      * Chills
      * Constipation
      * Diarrhea
      * Fever
      * Loss of appetite
      * Nausea
      * Shaking
      * Vomiting

  7. QUESTION:
    Ovarian Cyst Rupture Excessive Sleeping?
    A month ago I started having a dull ache in my pelvic area on the right side the pain was minimal so I didn’t give it much thought but three weeks later the pain increased and I had difficulty walking or trying to sit. So I went to my family doctor and she said it was an ovarian cyst and told me if the pain persisted for a few more days to get an ultrasound done. The pain decreased some after three days so I decided against the ultrasound. Until a week later (nine days ago) I felt like I was being poked in my belly button it was an odd sensation I didn’t think it was related though. The next night I felt like I was being stabbed in my right ovary and the pain went all the way to my back I was shaking, nauseated and I couldn’t walk across my living room without a lot of pain. Even trying to lay down was bad but once I was laying down and still it would calm down until I would move. I also had rectal pain my arm broke out into a rash (I don’t know what was up with that!) That night I slept for almost 15 hours. When I woke up I googled ovarian cyst and I read up on what the symptoms are of a ruptured cyst and it sounded like what I went through so I set up an appointment for the ultrasound for that day and called my doctor ASAP. She said it sounded like it had burst and told me to proceed with the appt and she would let me know the results. While I was getting the ultrasound I felt a shooting pain go up my abdomen. It was a late appt on a Friday so I didn’t get the results until Monday afternoon and they said that I had some gas over my right ovary so they couldn’t see it at all. I only had the pelvic sonagram not the transvaginal. I know this pain was NOT gas! and I have had this pain for 5 weeks. I told my doctor I was still experiencing pain although not as bad as that one night and that I had been sleeping a lot. Also, my lower back and right leg were hurting really bad for several days after that episode. All of last week I fell asleep as soon as I got home from work I have an uncontrolable tiredness and when Friday came around I slept for 14 1/2 hours then the next night I fell asleep at 10pm. I would have slept longer but my sister kept waking me up telling me to do my homework (I go to college once a week after work). I still feel exhausted…my doctor suggested I go to an obgyn but I feel uncomfortable going to one. Any advice?

    • ANSWER:
      inflamed kidneys from diabetes? avoid sugar. diabetes causes fatigue.
  8. QUESTION:
    I had an Ovarian Cyst Rupture?
    I’ve had them before but the last few weeks I’ve started having ovarian cyst pain again and tonight I was sitting down doing nothing when all of the sudden my right ovary started hurting and within a minute I felt excruciating stabbing pains in my ovary, uterus and rectum I could barely walk to get to my car and someone had to drive me home it was so intense I thought about going to the ER. I have a relative that’s a nurse so I had them check my blood pressure and it was elevated (I didn’t go to the hospital because I know if your blood pressure is low its a sign of internal bleeding) when this happened to me before when I had one rupture two years ago it was painful but not this bad! Also, I was shaking and groaning from the pain. The pain has decreased but it still hurts some I really don’t want to go to the hospital because I can’t afford to and I don’t have insurance. I didn’t go the the ER with the first cyst I just went to my gyno the next day but this is the weekend I can’t go till monday. Is it ok to wait that long to see a doctor?

    • ANSWER:
      Call your gyn now to get advice on how to proceed. Most offices are connected to an answering service for after hours emergencies. You leave your name, describe your symptoms and how long you’ve had them and give a call-back number. You should get a return call within an hour or so with instructions on what to do. If you are told to go to the E/R, then go.
  9. QUESTION:
    Ovarian Cyst RUPTURED Months Ago…?
    I had a cyst rupture about 10 months ago. Beforehand I had an appt set up to see my doctor about a possible cyst because I was in so much pain I could hardly walk but before I went it ruptured. I had a sonogram done afterwards and they didn’t see any problems so the doctor sent me on my way. When it ruptured I had extreme pain I couldn’t walk I had to lay still, nausea, shaking, chills, rectal pain, lower back pain and sharp pain from my right ovary going up to my naval. For a month after that I slept all the time I could not get enough sleep and had soreness in my right ovary. Ever since that happened I have always had some minor pain in that area I just wondered if that is normal like it damaged me? I don’t notice it all the time but if I move or stand up I feel it. Well today I was sitting with my right leg on the couch with my knee under my chin and when I moved my leg to the ground I gasped because it hurt in my right ovary. I don’t think its a new cyst because the pain never fully went away after the rupture but it alarmed me because today it hurt more than usual. Has anyone had this happen before? Is it just damage? When I saw my gyno she didn’t tell me much about the rupture or treat me for it or even tell me I needed a follow up appt. She said that I did have a cyst rupture by my symptoms though. I am thinking about scheduling an appt with a different gyno but before I do that I was just curious if anyone knows anything about this?

    • ANSWER:
      sometimes i am in extreme pain where my right ovary is i cant do anything. it’s uncomfortable to lay down, i get nausea. my gyno thinks i have cyst but i had an ultrasound and they said i have no cyst. ive been going through this for about 4 years back and forth every time i leave the doctors i have more questions then when i went it. I hope you have better luck finding out then i did
  10. QUESTION:
    Everyone at a loss.. feel like giving up, anyone have ideas?
    It has now been 4 months since my abdominal pain started.. and no-one has a single clue to why, and what is causing it. I went to see my surgeon on Thursday and he admitted that all though all my tests are coming back clear, he still has no idea what is wrong.. However, I have now been referred to a gastroentologist, to where they are planning to look further and possibly progress with further testing.

    Tests I’ve had done:

    X-rays
    Ultrasound scans
    MRI
    Blood tests – (once came back showing a possible iron deficiency and elevated white blood cells)
    Urine samples

    Possible causes crossed off:

    Appendicitis (been questioned at at least 6-7 times)
    Gall stones
    Gall bladder problems
    Ovarian cysts
    Ruptured ovarian cysts
    Kidney problems
    IBS
    Crohn’s disease

    Symptoms I’ve had

    All together; my lower right abdomen is hard, swollen, extremely tender and very painful to pressure. I’m extremely nauseous, having to breathe shallow, have sharp stabbing pains which have moved to 2/3 of the way between my navel and right hip bone, above my navel, and radiating to my right lower back. I’m often severely shaking and extremely cold, my temp is going up and down, I’m having cold sweats, extremely restless and can’t lay flat on my back or on my right side, this worsens the pain, as does drinking, eating, coughing, sneezing, walking, raising my right leg, bending, or over-working, heavy lifting etc…
    gastroentologist

    I’m a 17 year old female, and this is absolutely killing me. I’m having regular attacks constantly, I’ve lost a lot of weight too.. where half the time I don’t eat :/

    The surgeon said there is a chance of it being a rare condition.. but as to what that is..he doesn’t know. Any have any ideas? Because I’m questioning on giving up right now..

    Thanks.
    No-one has even questioned or considered endometriosis.. but I’ll be sure to check it out now. They’ve considered all as I’ve mentioned but that is all.. They are practically giving up, and passing me on from one person to the next, and it’s so painful, yet this is the first good thing they’ve actually decided to do…

    • ANSWER:
      Those sounds like textbook symptoms of endometriosis. They can’t diagnose endo except by laparoscopic surgery–it doesn’t show up on ultrasounds. Have you seen a gynecologist? A good one? Google “endometriosis” and the name of where you live. Maybe you can find an expert in it and then they can give you their opinion. Did no one ever suggest it before?
  11. QUESTION:
    Is it worth insisting for?
    I’ve had abdominal pain now for around5 months or so. I’ve had X-rays, Ultrasounds, an MRI scan, blood and urine tests, and all is coming back negative and fine. Though, the pain is only worsening. The pain has had me to the point where I’ve been rolling around crying in pain, holding my stomach. It’s woken me up in the nights, where I’ve suddenly jumped up holding my stomach, and again, crying in pain.

    I’m clueless as to what it is, and the hospital is steadily giving up any sign of even caring. The pain recently came on after weeks of being settled, and to the point where I even thought it had gone. It began as a cramp in my upper abdomen and became sharp and painful to touch over a few hours. Then a few hours afterwards, it steadily moved to my lower right abdomen where it has stayed. The pain is radiating to my mid-back, lower back, right side and around my right rib cage where I’m having sharp pains.

    I stayed in last Wednesday with suspected appendicitis. I was flushed, shivering/shaking, holding my stomach and led still and tearful with the pain. I was told I was to have a Laparoscopy and possible Appendesectomy, where they cancelled for the 2nd time and sent me home saying I was fine. Though this has been going on for months, and that morning I was rolling about consistently for 6 hours crying with lower right stomach pain.

    I was scheduled for a V.I.P scan, and told it was one I haven’t had before. I ended up having my 4th or 5th Ultrasound scan of my pelvic area, where there isn’t any pain or problems. I’ve had other pelvic scans before and they found nothing, so why did they say it was a scan I haven’t had before, but had several times before? And they know it too.

    I’m so confused, we were advised by severeal to insist on having a camera inserted through my stomach, as for the past 5 months, they’ve said it’s one thing, settled on it.. then said no, and said it was comething else? They’re constantly second guessing everything.. I’ve been told it’s appendicitis, ovarian cysts, ruptured ovarian cysts, IBS, gallstones, gall bladder problems, appendicitis, appendicitis and more appendicitis, mid-cycle pain, and a few other things, but every time they’ve said yes, then changed their minds.. I’m in absolute agony, but they just keep saying I’m fine and nothing is wrong, yet I’ve collapsed a few times from this, had breathing difficulties because of the pain, and been taken to hospital around 7/8 times.. and scheduled for 2 operations to be cancelled at the last minute..

    Is it worth insisting on a laproscopic surgery? I’m in college too studying horse care, so I’m failing the practical side of my education because of all this.. Is it worth it?

    Thanks and sorry it is so long!
    I don’t have that… it’s nothing to do with muscles.. as you’ve mentioned it like 100000000000 times before. It’s not that :)

    • ANSWER:
  12. QUESTION:
    Stabbing right side pain and more symptoms…..?
    Okay, i will start off listing my symptoms, and then i will give a little more information about myself and what i have suspected. I will be going to a Dr., but i this has been driving me crazy and i want to see other people’s ideas of what it could be.
    Symptoms:
    -Sharp pain at the very bottom of my right side, like near my hip bone. It is extremely sharp and it sometimes moves to the bottom of my stomach. The pain seems to get worse if i lay on my stomach or on my right side. it also gets worse if i have been sleeping, and my legs are curled up to me, when i straighten them, it is an extremely sharp pain.(That feeling only happens on the mornings i wake up with this pain, not every day)
    -Last week when i had this pain i started dripping sweat and shaking, i also got very hot(which had never happened before and hasn’t happened again)
    -Nausea(Again, that happened last week, but not this time and not the time before)
    -When i lay down, i hear my stomach making a lot of crazy grumbling noises
    -Gassy and it seems to make me go number two a lot(gross, sorry)
    -a dull leg pain(i am not sure if it is associated with this or if it is just a coincidence that i have this side pain at the same time)The dull pain is at the top of my right leg, where your thigh bones meet your torso. It isn’t a bad pain, it actually feels like there is a bone out of place and it just needs to crack to feel better.

    I wake up with this sharp pain, it is really bad when i first get it, and throughout the day, it starts getting better. It doesn’t necessarily happen in the morning, because today i woke up around 9 and when i was completely fine, went to church, came home and ate breakfast, and i took a nap. When i woke up from the nap, around 3pm, is when I got the pain. I will end up having a dull pain in the same area for a random amount of days after, sometimes 2 days, sometimes about 5 days after the initial pain. The pain happened about a month ago, and it was really bad for one day, and it ended up going away completely a week later. I get the pain when i wake up. It never happens in the middle of the day or night, i usually am in bed and i feel it when i wake up. It starts out as a very sharp, stabbing pain in my side, hurting worse when bending over, when my right leg goes down the steps, etc . I have this pain today, when i woke up i got it, i had it last week, and i had it about 2-3 weeks before that. Last week it was the worse it had ever been.
    At first, i thought maybe an ovarian cyst had ruptured because of the location of the pain, and because i had been diagnosed with ovarian cysts quite a few years ago(i am not even sure if i still have them, so i was just guessing). I looked it up on the internet, and i had some of the symptoms, but not many, and there was no blood at all. My mom said maybe it was gastritis, my dad thought maybe appendix. Last week when it was really bad, i was in so much pain that i had never felt before, i was going to go to the ER. I ended up not going because i started feeling better and i figured i could just go to a stomach doctor instead of dealing with the chaos in the ER. I have tried taking Tylenol, which helps the dull pain but not when the pain is sharp and stabbing. I also tried thinking that maybe it still was a cyst issue, and i took extra strength Midol, which eased up the dull pain again, but doesn’t help the sharp pain at all.
    So, since i haven’t seen my doctor yet, what does everybody think that this could be? It has been driving me mad, just trying to find an idea of what it could be.
    Thank you!!

  13. QUESTION:
    Was this rude of me in a full doctors office….?
    My best girlfriend had to go to the OB yesterday because she had some pain and an ovarian cyst that ruptured so I got to watch her little boy (he’s two) while she was in the exam room. She was in there for about two hours and this is the first time he has been tended to by someone other than a grandparent or his own mommy and daddy. Anyway, when we first got there the room was relatively empty and we kinda had the place to ourselves so everything was okay, but being a rowdy little boy we were making ramps for his cars out of the magazines and I was tickling him…we was squealing and making all of these happy little noises (really loud!). I tried to take him outside to pick wisteria off of the trees as not to disturb others but I’ll be damned the first cluster of wisteria I shook, a bumblebee flew out and it scared the bejaisus out of him so he wanted to go back inside so we drew hand turkeys in one of the magazines and I was making his little toy car quack like a duck…which in turn make him squeal and giggle louder. Several people commented what a good mother I was and I had to explain that he wasn’t mine but I was tending him while mommy was in getting an ultrasound…and they said I was good with kids. I’m not fond of children (although I have two of my own that I was good to) but little Dominic is my sweetheart and I just wanted to keep him from pitching a wobbler while away from his mommy.

    Was I rude letting him (well…and me too…) make a little noise while we were in there because this was the first time I had kept him all alone? I was just trying to avoid that crying “I WANT MY MOMMY” bit (I did well because he didn’t ask for mommy except for one time!) and just wondered if you would rather see and hear a child playing happily and giggling instead of screecjing and pitching a fit. He didn’t want to go outside because there were bumbleebees out there so we had no choice but to go back into the waiting room….

    Did I do the right thing?

    Because I’m hoping to be able to watch him again and wanted to get all of your input on what you would rather see…a screaming baby wanting his mommy or one giggling happily?

    We don’t have a “kid-friendly” house because of all the artifacts and antiques in here so he couldn’t stay here and there was a possibility that I may have had to drive her back. What would you have done? Everyone commented on what a good “mommy” I was but he isn’t mine….so I suppose I let the envelope get pushed a bit farther and basically…well, little Dommie did no wrong…I’m just wondering if everyone was annoyed. No one complained and he did have the whole waiting room cracking up as people started to fill the chairs.

    Does this also mean I am good with little kids after all? I always thought I had no patience but Dommie and I got along really well and I had lots of fun teaching him to do mean things too…like poke sticks in ant beds and then run fast (I was holding him when he did it and let him watch the ants for a bit and told him to always RUN RUN RUN after he did that). I also got to teach him the “look both ways” thing in the parking lot….after a few tries before the wisteria bumblebee incident….

    Was I being rude or just very attentive to by best girlfriends baby in a time of need? Dominic and I were in our own little world because I love my friend so much I wanted to make sure that her youngest was my center of attention so he would be safe and entertained as not to worry about his mommy. What’s your opinion?

    Thanks to all who answer!
    Marc C – You think I’m long winded on here….you don’t want to be at one of my “lectures” HAHAHAHA!!! Thanks for answering though. And yes, I can talk up a blue streak :) )
    As far as the magazine thing, it was a quilting magazine that had a fold out on patterns and the side we drew hand turkeys on was the blank side and a few of the subscription cards….I drew horns and a goatee on a pic of Dr. Phil and he scribbled horns and a moustache (to the best of his two year old ability) on Brad Pitt in one and I drew a big hat with a flower on it on Angelina Jolie….so we really didn’t do a lot of damage and the magazines were still readable. Dr. Phil looked scarily appropriate with horns :) )

    • ANSWER:
      What are you talking about? You’re always rude! Well, at least not to me, but that’s the way it should be. Screw everyone else!

  14. QUESTION:
    Why does Darvocet make me shake as it takes effect?
    I have Propoxyphene – N 100 w/ APAP 650 tabs (Darvocet) for “pelvic pain” caused by ovarian cysts/possible endometriosis. Dosage is one every four hours. I’ve only taken it three times. Twice in one day when a cyst ruptured in January – first one was on an empty stomach and second one was immediately after lunch – about 4 1/2 – 5 hours later. Third time was Friday night when another cyst ruptured on the way home from dinner (about 9pm). (The pain is excruciating and unmistakable – unlike any other.) Each time, I get TERRIBLE shakes/tremors/whatever you want to call them as it gets into my system. I can only compare it to end-stage Parkinson’s shakes – complete with involuntary “jerks” of 5-6″. They increase in severity as the Darv gets more into my system, but then they taper off to nothing as it takes effect – leaving me (almost) comfortably numb. (I can at least breathe again and stop crying.) I texted my doc Friday night and he didn’t seem concerned (unless he just missed that part), so I assume it can’t be too terribly uncommon. But WHY??? The only thing I can find on the ‘net about Darvocet and shakes is regarding withdrawal symptoms.

    Also, about an hour after taking the second one that January day, after the shakes stopped and the med was in my system good, I ended up throwing up. (Just in case that plays in here anywhere.) I didn’t get nauseous or anything Friday (after dinner) nor with the first one in January (on an empty stomach).

    Finally, I’ve had a low-grade fever (99.5-100.3) since Saturday morning – possibly before. Presumably because of the rupture, but mentioned here just in case. I know pain can elevate your temp.

    I am five foot and about 96lbs if that matters any. Always kinda scares me when doc gives me same dosage and he would for someone 6’7″ and 300lbs. But in this case, if the dose was any smaller, I don’t think it would help.
    Hey – guess what?? Talked to my doc about it today and he’s never heard of it causing shakes either! Go figure. Why does it always have to happen to me?

    • ANSWER:
      Your tremors appear to be seizures caused by an “overdose” of Darvocet. Apparently the dosage is too high and that is something that your doctor should have taken into consideration if he happened to notice that you were not a 300# woman. But it isn’t that common a symptom.

      The nausea and vomiting are also side effects as you already know. I doubt if the low grade fever itself could cause the problem but since you apparently have an infection as a result of a ruptured cyst.

      You can get better detail at the site below – but unlike the drugstore.come, I don’t see seizures listed. You will see it at the Wrong Diagnosis site as Convulsions.

      Question: has your doctor already ordered a laparoscopy to rule out endometriosis? Of course the cysts can develop as a result of endometriosis.

      You have a lot of pain. It is time for your doctor to listen to you. You may need to decide which options are open to you so that you have an idea of your next treatment step. That might help your next communication with your doctor. Or ask him what he suggests but be aware of your options first.

  15. QUESTION:
    I need some help for a 10 week old kitten please!?
    I have a kitten who was 10 weeks old yesterday. He has been sick so I took him to the vet. It seemed like merely a cold so they gave me antibiotics, he has been wormed, and nasal spray and eye drops are also being administered. After we almost lost a kitten to anemia and she had to have a blood transfusion, I called the vet back and asked about Enfamil Poly-Vi-Sol drops with iron. She said that was a great idea so I have been giving those as well.I have also been keeping him in a room with a humidifier and am keeping the eyes and nose clean, but he just doesnt seem to be able to shake it! He eats like a horse but he is still the size of a 3 week old kitten. I got KMR and have been giving that to him to try and make him gain weight. I don’t want to lose my little tuxedo baby is there anything more I can do? If this is not a cold, what else could it be? I love the vet, but I have been to human doctors in my city that have told me I was constipated when I had 2 ovarian cysts that had ruptured so I dont necessarily trust them. I just want to know what other people think it is a what the best thing to do it. Thank you

    • ANSWER:
      Just keep following your vets advice, and as for the size issue your kitten might not grow as fast as other kittens. I have a full grown adult cat that is the size of a 4month old kitten.

      As long as your kitten is socialing and feeding well – i wouldnt be overerly concerned.

      Your kitten has a lovely owner, and its good to see your care so much.

  17. QUESTION:
    I had a miscarriage last Friday.. Kind of graphic, but I have a lot of unanswered questions.?
    I was told 8 weeks into my pregnancy that I was probably in the first stages of miscarriage. I was having pain on my left side, and the way I explained it, it felt like I had another ovarian cyst that was about to rupture. I was scheduled for an emergency ultrasound that day. The baby was only measuring at 6wks and the heart rate was too low.
    I was told to take it easy, keep taking my prenatal vitamins, and stay stress free.
    THe day after that ultrasound, I had to travel out of state for my Grandmother’s funeral. It was a very, very stressful time I was terrified something was going to happen while I was there, but thankfully nothing happened.
    Two days after I got back, I started bleeding. It started out pretty light, but the cramping was getting worse by the hour. I was told to go to the ER, so I did.. By this point, (Thursday AM) I was bleeding a bit heavier and the pain was pretty bad.
    I had another ultrasound, and was told hours later that I was still measuring at 6 wks &1 day. At this point I was too tired to cry much, I was so mad that all the doctors I talked to kept giving me false hope, telling me that a lot of times, women go on to have a perfectly fine pregnancy to term. I just knew in my heart it wasn’t going to happen for me.
    I went home Thursday after the doctor avoided the truth and told me to stay on bed rest and take it easy.
    By bedtime, I was in so much pain that I could barely breathe. I was staying at my boyfriend’s house in case something happened, I wouldn’t be alone. He went to work Friday morning very early. I stayed in bed rolling around in pain, crying, completely miserable.
    I finally got up to go to the bathroom, when it started. A lot of clots, a lot of blood. I was terrified. And alone. I called my boyfriend’s job and told him what was going on and that my mother was going to take me to the ER in about an hour or two.
    I was on the couch crying, having a panic attack when my boyfriend rushed in the door and told me to get up so we could go to the ER. I got up slowly and wobbled into the bathroom. He caught my arm and went to hug me, and as he did, I felt the blood rushing down my legs. I was *freaking* out.
    I bled everywhere. I was too scared to come out of the bathroom, and I wound up getting in the shower to rinse off before having to leave anywhere. The bleeding just wouldn’t stop.
    They took me in pretty quickly, but nobody seemed to take me seriously at the ER when I told them how much I was bleeding, until I had been laying in the hospital bed for an hour without seeing a doctor, and a nurse and phlebotomist came in to take my blood and blood pressure as I was laying down, sitting up and standing. (Every 3 minutes or so the cramping got so bad that I couldn’t breathe or move or do anything but beg someone for pain meds.. and I got nothing.)
    I asked my boyfriend to leave the room, because I knew as soon as I got up… Well, the nurse helped me up and I was crying hysterically and shaking and everything.. The floor was covered in blood. That was when there was finally a sense of urgency. The nurses had to put me back on the bed and clean me off.. They gave me two bags of saline and some morphine, which BARELY helped the pain.
    I had to have 3 pelvic exams and two ultrasounds that day, and never once did they tell me I was having a miscarriage. I knew I was having a miscarriage, but they never told me exactly what was happening.
    As I was being discharged, they told me I had a partial or incomplete miscarriage and I had a choice of going home to let the rest of it pass on it’s own, or I could take three pills to help pass the rest a little quicker.. And if the rest didn’t pass, I’d have to have a d & c. I chose to take the pills and go home with the pain meds. The only other thing I was told, was if I started bleeding as heavily as I was on Friday morning, that I would need to come back, and that I needed to have an ultrasound within a week to see if the rest of the pregnancy had passed, so I have a smaller chance of infection.
    So.. It’s been a full week. I was scheduled for a followup ultrasound yesterday, but was told that I had to reschedule for another day because I needed a “different” ultrasound.. So now I’m scheduled to go back on May 5th. I’m worried because I’m still bleeding off and on, sometimes it’s heavy, sometimes it’s dark and there isn’t much bleeding at all. As the day goes on, my cramping gets worse and worse, and by bedtime, I’m absolutely miserable.
    I know the whole process can take a few weeks, but I was under the impression that the pills they gave me would speedup the process, but by how long? Should I still be in this much pain?
    What should I be expecting? I ran out of the pain meds they gave me on day 3 and wasnt able to get more. Tylenol did nothing to help. I’m worried, I’ve known since the beginning that something wasn’t right, and now I sti

    • ANSWER:
      I know that we had two seperate things going on, I had an abortion with pills. Now please keep reading because your symptoms were the same as mine. I bled for an entire month and had severe cramps, and I eventually got an infection. The fetus was stuck in my cervix and the only way they actually knew it was up there was because I went back into the E.R after all the scheduled ultrasounds (even when they just told me to rest and that I was perfectly fine) the doctor did an exam and seen that my cervix was completely open and removed the “debri” as he called it right then and there. I am not trying to scare you, I really do not want anyone to experience what I went thru and still am going thru to this day. I was very ill due to the massive blood loss, including clots the size of an orange. The way the E.R doctor explained it to me was that I was cramping all the time because my Uterus was spasming to try to loosen the blockage and my body was retaining blood to try force it out as I stood up or moved. Please go to the E.R before an infection set in, or something else serious happens. If I did not go I would of been dead in a week if I stayed at home.
  18. QUESTION:
    How do I get a diagnosis? I am desperate.?
    I’m so desperate, I’m asking an internet forum.
    I have been sick for six months. This illness continues to get more painful and more debilitating. I have seen multiple doctors, to no avail. Is there ANYONE out there with advice? My doctors are seeming to get sick of me. My life is non-existent. I can’t leave my house. I can’t function. I am constantly in pain, all over my body.

    I am a 20 year old female. I have had digestive symptoms for months.
    I have frequent bowel movements (7+ times per day), most of which are diarrhea or extremely loose. Anti-diarrheal medications do not work; the only thing that “works” to solidify my stool is Vicodin, but this constipates me, which doesn’t help either.
    My stool contains a great deal of undigested food – vegetables (lettuce, tomato, etc), meat, grain (rice cereal, etc.).
    I have severe abdominal distension.
    I have sharp pains throughout my abdomen constantly.
    My stool is usually extremely fatty, foamy, and foul-smelling.
    Nearly every bowel movement is painful.
    I am nauseous daily. I never know if I will be able to keep down food. Accompanying food with milk seems to ease the nausea.
    My weight fluctuates extremely. My typical weight is 140 (I am 5’11″) and it drops down to 125 and back up within a week or two.
    This is accompanied by many other symptoms – joint pain, extreme fatigue, chest pain, heart palpitations, inability to control body temperature (alternating quickly between sweating and shaking with cold chills), muscle weakness, hand tremors, hypoglycemia, low blood pressure, blurred/distorted vision, memory loss, confusion, frequent urination, near-daily low-grade fevers, constant headache.

    I have seen an internist, a gastroenterologist, and a gynecologist.
    In May, I went in for surgery to remove a ruptured ovarian cyst, at which point they also noticed appendicitis and removed my appendix. The biopsy of my appendix returned somewhat normal, except they had found multiple stones and stool within the appendix, but said it seemed normal.

    During a follow-up gynecologic exam, my doctor did an ultrasound due to my abdominal distension, and saw that my large intestine was in between my uterus and my bladder.

    I have since had a colonoscopy, an endoscopy, a great deal of bloodwork (vitamin levels, ANA, CSR, RA,H.pylori, liver and kidney panels, CBC) an EKG, and a stool study to test for bacteria and parasites.

    All of these tests have come back clean/negative.

    What do I do next? My doctors are literally guessing. I’m currently taking meclizine, in the off chance that I may have an inner ear infection that they can’t see? The medicine is not helping.
    They have not given me any more medicine.
    I am completely lost, and constantly miserable. Any advice would be appreciated.

    • ANSWER:
      I’m sorry to hear all that you are going through. I don’t know if your gastroenterologist or other docs checked you out for this (doesn’t sound like they did) but I’d have a GES (gastric emptying scan) done to rule out Gastroparesis. Most of the symptoms you’ve listed are the same ones I deal with and I was diagnosed with Gastroparesis. Also, have your hormone levels checked too. If your estrogen levels are off it can cause some of the symptoms too. A possibility with your bowels is that you probably have IBS-D (irritable bowel syndrome – diarrhea dominant). I’d ask your gastroenterologist about that. I hope this info helps.

      Praying you get a diagnosis soon and feel much better soon.

  19. QUESTION:
    Ruptured Ovarian Cyst—- What can help the pain I am in agony?
    My name is Jessica I am 22 years old and suffered with PCOS since aged 13 when I got diagnosed with this. My periods have been so irregular I haven’t had a period for 6 months and no I am not pregnant because I am currently single. I have been on the Pill “Yasmin” for the past 3-4 years I take it every day with a weeks break once Ive finished that strip of pills and I have no peroid which I know is normal for somebody with PCOS.

    In the past few days its got worse I went to see my GP she was USELESS and did nothing so I made an app to see my gyn consultant who unfortunately had to cancel his clinic tonight because a woman went into labour and needed him there to deliver her baby so I saw his colleauge who was lovely.

    I ended up spending near enough 2 and a half hours in the hospital inc seeing this other gyn consultant who was fantastic very friendly I would DEFINATELY reccomend him I had an ultrasound vaginally which was painful but on it he saw a cyst had ruptured and theres a bit of fluid about.

    Of course I am in agony over this all if I keep walking around and doing things it hurts more ive tried painkillers unfortunately I can only have paracetomal because I am allergic to codiene, neurofen and ibrobufen which sucks. I have tried a hot water bottle, taking painkillers nothing has worked apparently it will settle down in a few days if not I have to go into hospital so he can put a camera down me to see what else is going on which I do not want as I was only in hospital last Friday for an ankle issue.

    Sorry its so long but I thought you should know the full story and I hope I get a period soon and all this pain will end.

    ANY advice would help greatly I am in agony the only thing that worked earlier was a hot bath the pain had gone but when I got out it was bad, layed in bed it settled down the washed my hair about an hour ago and now its really painful again

    Thank you so much to everyone who replies
    Hi Astrid,

    It is like the pain when you have appenditis but worse its a nagging pain which I cannot seem to shift I have to be careful with pain meds because I am allergic to codiene which really sucks so I can only take paracetomal. I find that hot water bottles don’t help and paracetomal only really helps at night I take it right before I go to sleep and a hot bath works me wonders the pain goes down so much but I spoke to my GYN consultant yesterday and if it doesnt get any better I am going to see him thursday evening at his clinic. I havent tried hugging a pillow I will try it though although it seems like nothing is working right about now.

    God for bid I havent had surgery I don’t really want it to be honest I had an ultrasound on Tuesday evening and the cysts havent gotton any bigger I love kids and would love to have them in the future I havent had a period for 6 months now of course I am worried that they wont return but I hope everyday that I will have one soon.

    I

    • ANSWER:
      If you start to experience severe pain (being unable to think, shaking, throwing up from the pain) I would suggest going to the hospital. Yeah, it should settle down but if it becomes unbearable those few days will be unlivable. Other than painkillers they might put you on a TENS machine (which stimulates your nerves and reduces pain) which a lot of women find helpful in your situation. Have you tried just applying pressure, like hugging a pillow to your abdomen? Because I find with severe pain that’s the only thing that helps me (I have endometriosis so can relate to your pain level).
      Until it goes away or gets lighter all you can really do is apply pressure and curl up in bed! I’m sorry, it’s awful but that’s the truth.

      Have you had surgery for your PCOS recently? Because you should really push for it if it’s been a while.

      Stay strong. Us ‘women’s health problems’ girls need to stick together!

  20. QUESTION:
    Doctors giving up, told it’s nothing?
    Had this pain for 4/5 months now, had around 6-8 surgeons, over 30 doctors, several consultants, and everyone is giving up. I’ve been told it’s appendicitis, ruptured ovarian cysts, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, IBS, mid-cycle pain, gall stones, gallbladder problems, appendicitis.. now I’m being told it’s nothing.. AGAIN. I’ve had X-Rays, Ultrasounds, MRI scan, blood tests, urine samples. Everything is coming back negative, yet the pain is worsening?

    I was taken in hospital last night with suspected appendicitis, and for the second time scheduled for a laproscopic surgery and a possible appendectomy, only to have it cancelled AGAIN, and told I don’t need it. I’m in utter agony, everything calmed down weeks ago, almost felt like it was never there, and now it feels like everything has come back with avengence, 100x worse.

    It’s the 4th day today. These past few days, the pain is steadily worsening. Sunday, I had a light cramping in my upper abdomen, slowly got worse over a few hours, that it became sharp pain, which was painful and tender to the touch. That eventually calmed down, but slowly moved over to my lower right side. These past few days, I’m struggling to eat, drink, move, because it worsens the pain dramatically, I can’t touch my lower right side, or my side, pressure on the left side causes sharp pain on my lower right side, I’ve had uncontrollable shaking and shivering, chills, headaches, nausea, slight vomiting. Doctors and surgeons agreed last night/this morning that my lower right side is extremely tender.. only to be told it’s nothing and sent home.

    I’ve had Tramadol, Paracetamol, Co-Codamol and Ibuprofen over these past few months, and nothing is working. No position is either. It’s worsening at night, though it’s pretty bad in the day, night time is hell. It takes hours of crying, holding my stomach and rolling around to even get a few minutes sleep.. only to wake back up and do it all again. My parents don’t exactly care, and constantly having a go because I keep going back in absolute pain to try and get it sorted, only to be pushed away again and told it’s nothing.

    I’ve been to hospital between 6-8 times with this, and each time, either they said they don’t have a clue what it is, it’s nothing, or say it’s appendicitis.. then send me home with a few pills that never do a thing to it. I’m now scheduled for a scan I’ve apparently haven’t had before to figure it out, I’m thinking a CT scan?

    Should I just give up? I was told I’d be seeing a gastroenterologist too a few months back.. but that never happened either.. I’m in so much pain, is there anything I can do to calm this down? Anyone had such experiences like this before? All of this has happened at the same hospital..
    Nope, haven’t had anything like that.. they said it’s no need for such things. IBS they’ve tried looking through that, but no signs of it. Everything I’ve said they’ve tried and tested for but nothings coming up, all tests are negative. But they do keep going back to appendicitis.. Someone mentioned ‘grumbling appendicitis’.. what is that?

    Ahh, right, I see. I’ve never had a Cat Scan before, so pretty nervous of that. I’m just hoping something shows up soon, because it’s starting to cripple me pain wise, and affect what I can and can’t do.. Any medication doesn’t help, I’ve had medication through drips, oral medication.. nothing. The pain is just getting worse without an end in sight.
    Ahh right now I understand, that was something mentioned by someone too.. And IBS; they said I have no symptoms for it, and such, but honestly, I have no clue. I have no problems with that side of things. Hmm, I’ll have to take a look into it, because I have to be careful in the medication I take because of bad asthma, and I end up having bad reactions to certain types of medication. But I’ll be sure to look into it. I see, is it sort of like an MRI scan in ways then?
    Ahh I understand now. And I’ve never had a colonscopy.. they said such things as like that are not needed. They did say my lower right side, is awfully tender, when it shouldn’t be. Yet they said, nothing is wrong, and walked off.

    Crohn’s disease they said I haven’t got too.. though they referred to such conclusion using one of the tests they did before. And IBS may possibly be the cause, I have no idea I’m so lost with it all. They say it’s one thing, then say no, schedule examinations/tests, ops, then say I don’t need them? They’re confusing me so much..

    I’m just wondering whether to go to a different hospital altogether? But, my current hospital has all my files since this started…

    • ANSWER:
      As mentioned before have you had a Colonoscopy? There is one disease you haven’t mentioned is Chrones Disease. Very difficult to diagnose. They might be doing a Pet Scan. A Pet Scan mainly focuses on finding Tumors in the body. Most tumors absorb sugars very rapidly. You are given an injection and then they scan the body. A tumor can be picked up because the tumor will turn red because the high sugar absorption will heat up the blood flow. Good Luck.
  21. QUESTION:
    i was told today that i may possibly have had an ovarian cyst rupture and i have a few questions ?
    i’ve been in a tremendous amount of pain in my lower left quadrant for about 5 or 6 days. i was at the dr a couple of times each with different answers. today i was sent for a pelvic ultrasound which showed fluid in my fallopian tubes and a lot of inflamation. the dr said he was assuming that i had a cyst on the ovary that burst and left behind some fluid etc…the pain is not going away at all and i’m feeling quite nauseated with it as well. they did an internal ultrasound as well as the normal one and the internal one was so painful i actually shook for about 4 hours. i had a partial hysterectomy 3 and a half years ago and have no uterus but still have the tubes and ovaries. the tech told me she never usually sees tubes on an ultrasound. i’m getting worried because the pain is just not going away. any suggestions or answers?

    • ANSWER:
      If you’re still in pain in the morning, call the doctor. It can take a few days for the cyst to totally go a way, but 7 days is really pushing the limit. (Mine took about 7 days to clear up, I was flat on the couch crying in pain) I don’t know that an ovarian cyst would cause fluid in the fallopian tubes – mine ruptured into my abdominal cavity. i was nauseated for days too.

      The least he can do is give you pain killers.

  22. QUESTION:
    Has anyone been sick/achy/feeling unwell or just not the same since they had their baby?
    My daughter turned a year old this month. The pregnancy was terrible, but all went well during labor/delivery. Since I had her I have felt like a totally different person and my doctor diagnosed me with fibromyalgia. I don’t know if this is right, though. I never have energy – not just from being a mother, it’s worse than that. I feel like I’m drugged sometimes. My body always aches, I feel nauseous half of the time and throw up a lot or feel like throwing up, inside I just feel unwell – similar to having the flu, I’ve had two functioning ovarian cysts burst (my doc told me this is normal but I’m having the symptoms again within the last 2 weeks). Early in the morning this lower abdominal ache wakes me up. It isn’t sharp pain – it’s more similar to menstrual cramps but a little different. When I wake up in the morning I feel HORRIBLE. It takes me about an hour to shake off the incredibly sick feeling all over my body. It really is like having the flu all the time – with more symptoms. I am on Protonix (for a suspected ulcer after the gall bladder test was normal) and my stomach aches are ok while taking it but when I stop it is immediate pain. I was not this person before I had her. I had my thyroid tested and it was normal. I had an ultrasound when the first cyst ruptured and all they saw was a little free fluid in my abdomen from the cyst, nothing abnormal. I get sick a lot as if my immune system is very weak. I am wondering if anyone has had a feeling of illness or achiness or exhaustion that they feel started after they gave birth or during pregnancy. I think that I was severely malnourished during the pregnancy because I threw up every day repeatedly and could barely drink water. I took two different meds to keep me from throwing up but they didn’t work at all. My body felt like I was hit by a truck when I was preggo with her. I just feel like I am totally different and that life is miserable and that I am always ill and depleted of energy. Help!

      Thanks for your long story to understand your body condition.
      But I would like to advice in short because it is difficult for you to understand the physiology and pathology of east asian medicine.

      You need to take Boyak. Boyak means the herbal teas prescribed by the herbal doctor for general improvement of bioenergy.

I think that I was severely malnourished during the pregnancy because I threw up every day repeatedly and could barely drink water. I took two different meds to keep me from throwing up but they didn’t work at all. My body felt like I was hit by a truck when I was preggo with her. I just feel like I am totally different and that life is miserable and that I am always ill and depleted of energy. Help!

    • ANSWER:
      I completely feel the same way.
      Everything always hurts and I’m always nauseous.
      I would sleep all day, every day if I didn’t have a 3 month old.

      But I have no idea what’s wrong with me.
      I might go pick up a pregnancy test, even though I have an IUD.

  24. QUESTION:
    pelvic pain?
    I have had a dull achy pain in my right pelvic region that goes into my lower right back for the past month give or take a little. I have a history of ovarian cyst and am hoping this is not that. I have had a cold for about a month and can’t seem to shake it, maybe they are both connected somehow. I have been getting my period regularly,this month though it only lasted for 2 days. I am on birth control to control my cyst which is why I dont think this pain is that.
    i also have very achy legs all the time. like when i get my period. im not due to have my period till Feb 19th

    • ANSWER:
      you need to see your ob/gyn. i’ve taken care of many young women who come in to the er in the middle of the night with this pain, only to have had the cyst rupture and cause them to have surgery. the birth control pills will not cause ovarian cysts to go away.
  25. QUESTION:
    Question for those with PCOS or anything with similar symptoms?
    I recently saw the dr to discuss my symptoms and had some blood work done. I wasn’t hoping to have PCOS, but hoped that at least the lab results would point us in the right direction. She tested all my hormone levels (testosterone, thyroid, etc.) and had me do a fasting glucose test. I just got all my results back and everything was completely normal. Even my blood sugar! Normally I would be thrilled, but something is very wrong with me and with these normal results, we’re back to square one. I do still have the ultra sound to do next week and then I meet with her again. I have a history of cysts rupturing, so we’ll see what that holds. So, my question is this, have any of you been diagnosed with pcos, even though lab results were normal or do any of you have another condition that has these similar symptoms?

    Symptoms
    ~Absence of periods (cycles range from 4-6 months)
    ~Extreme weight gain. (more than 50 lbs in this last year. That includes 3 months when I made a huge effort to eat very healthy and was at the gym 1hour 5-6 days a week – still gained! I even gained weight when I couldn’t eat for a week due to an allergic reaction to medication. Literally, my diet consisted of chicken broth and water and I gained 4 lbs in that 1 week.)
    ~Facial and body hair (I am growing actual whiskers like a man, I have to shave my face at least once a week and and now starting to grow hair on my belly and back)
    ~Problems with sugar. (a half a glass of sweet tea, pop, koolaid – anything – will have me visibly shaking, jittery, weak, light headed and dizzy with in 10 minutes. Even the glucose test did this to me)
    ~my acne is worse than it was as a teen
    ~I have a good deal of pelvic pain, even when not cramping, I’m always extremely tender (to the point that it effects my sex life)
    ~My blood pressure is also now beginning to skyrocket. I’ve never had it this high before

    Regardless of what I eat or how often I exercise, these symptoms continue to get worse. And if all my levels are normal, then what could be causing these things (namely the weight gain, facial/body hair and problems with anything sugary)

    Please help!

    • ANSWER:
      Hi,
      I have PCOS but I do not have all the symptoms. I had irregular periods, every 3-5 months (once it got to as much as 7) and I went from weighing 145 pounds to 225 in about two years, even though I had been on a really strict diet and was a gym freak for about a year and a half into it.
      Like you, I’ve gotten tested for everything possible, thyroid, glucose, cortisol, etc etc etc etc etc and after doctor’s disapproving looks of me being “fat” and “not putting enough effort into the gym” and hundreds of dollars of medical bills later I finally found the gyno who is helping me. She did an ultrasound, but not the standard one pregnant women get. It’s trans-vaginal, which means they stick a, sorry for being vulgar, phallic looking thing up your vagina and there is a sensor at the tip which allows a much clearer picture of your ovaries. Sure enough, mine we full of cysts, hence, poly cystic ovarian syndrome. You normally cannot tell with a standard ultrasound.

      According to the gyno, the cysts are basically the eggs that never made it out of your ovaries. Our ovaries are supposed to let out an egg every month after it has matured, but in this case, they never fully mature, and never emerge and you do not ovulate, hence, you never get your period.

      Your sugar problems may be due to the fact that you do not metabolize insulin correctly- which is yet another symptom.

      They say there is no “cure” for PCOS but there is management. I’m currently on Metformin ( a medicine that is normally given to diabetics, but one that PCOS patients get to regulate their insulin management) and birth control (to regulate my period). I have been getting my period every month now, and I have lost a few pounds. I am not satisfied yet, but I am glad that I at least stopped gaining weight. I’m only 19..and this has prevented me from having a normal teenage experience (in terms of relationships) and has left me quite bitter, but yet optimistic at the same time.

      Best of luck.
