Hello, For awhile there I thought I was the expert on all of this stuff but I have myself stumped and would like some input if you have any! And before you tell me to go running to the doctor I am going on Thursday! But I do want to know your opinions before I get in there so I can have an idea of what might be going on and what kind of questions to ask. Thursday evening while I was getting ready for an evening out to dinner for my Sister's birthday I was trying on some pre-pregnancy jeans. They fit but I have been a little bloated so I decided to just go with some nice shorts and a polo shirt. As I bent down to take them off I got this searing sharp pain in my lower left abdomen around my ovary area. It felt like someone had stabbed me. Well from LOTS of experience I knew right away that a cyst had ruptured. Immediately I had the sweats and I was shaking and I felt hot and dizzy. All the usually symptoms. I yelled out to the living room saying it was going to take a bit longer for me to get ready then I thought so just hang on! (I was NOT going to cancel my Sister's birthday dinner!!!! We were taking her to Shogun and besides I have been through cysts a million times before! I knew how to handle it!) So I found some early pregnancy shorts put those on and found a large shirt to cover my now large and swollen belly. I looked about four months pregnant (no joking!) and didn't want to call attention to myself from either my husband or my Sister. I was in immense pain and my husband had my act before we even left the house but I made him promise to just go along with it because I wasn't going to ruin my Sister's dinner. Well, all weekend long I was in pain and the swelling really didn't go away which I thought was rather unusual. Swelling from ruptured cysts for me in the past would only last a couple of hours, over night if that long and the pain really wouldn't stick around long either. Monday morning when I woke up it was hard to do any type of twisting movements because the swelling is getting worse and because the pain is getting worse. I swear I feel like I am pregnant all over again except my swollen belly isn't rock hard! Now today I am still feeling pretty bad. I am in pain among a bunch of other symptoms that may not mean anything but I am not sure. But considering how great I have been feeling it sounds to me that whatever is going on it is affecting me. I am exhausted beyond belief, my tolerance level is about a zero, I feel like I am having a hard time concentrating on things, I can't eat very much because I have a constant feeling of being full and I am just overall very irritable. Not to mention I feel like someone has punched me in my stomach and put their fist through to my colon and pulled my colon out through my belly button. (I know crazy! But I am having colon pain.) And no I am not constipated nor do I have the "D". So like I said I am normally an expert on all this endometriosis and cyst stuff but this one has me baffled. I feel like things have been one right on top of another lately. I just need a body vacation!!! (((HUGS))) Thanks in advance for any help you can give!!! kate P.S. A couple of years ago I did have a cyst rupture that was the size of a softball and when it ruptured it twisted my ovary around a couple of times but this doesn't feel like that did. ??????? I am clueless!
