Lower abdominal pain

I had some bloodwork done and and also an urine test. I called, and I was told that everything's perfectly fine. Well, the pain hasn't stopped. Pain mostly on the right side of my lower abdomin- kinda where you get you're menstrual cramps- but this pain is different, it's not throbbing or cramping, or shooting. It's just always there. There's also some bloating involved, at the same time. My stomach's like a soccer ball basically. I'm not pregnant, so that cannot be it. It also seems that I need to go to the bathroom more often-to urinate. Does this sound like fibro? What should I ask them to do?

Re: Lower abdominal pain

Have you had an ultra sound done? I think it could be possible ovarian cyst issue, but you need a ultra sound to confirm it. Or even possible Endo issue?

I dealt with Ovarian Cyst issue and Adenomyosis..ended up with a histerectomy due to it. I would look pregnant too. The cysts IO would get were huge then I would have clusters of them as well (PCOS).

Re: Lower abdominal pain

Nope, haven't had an ultra sound yet. If this won't go away by tomorrow, I'm going to see a doctor. I'm only 21, so I'm thinking that maybe I'm too young for these kinds of problems? First I thought that maybe this is a digestion-issue but it usually doesn't cause pain that's located that low-clearly where my uterus is.

Re: Lower abdominal pain

Ovarian cysts or uterine fibroids can happen in young women. Whether that's what's happening to you now? I have no idea. From what I've heard, though, ovarian cysts tend to be extremely painful, and are sometimes mistaken for appendicitis.

Hopefully it's just one of the "random fibro things" and it'll fade soon.

Re: Lower abdominal pain

I know I had my first ovarian cyst at 18. Painful...YES VERY! Or not so bad either..it can depend. Its a thought to have that lookewd out to be ruled out.

Let me know what happens

Re: Lower abdominal pain

Hi you should have an ultrasound as was suggested. I had a dermoid cyst when I was in my 20's. It was the size of an orange when it was removed.

Re: Lower abdominal pain

If your symptoms persist and an ultrasound is negative, ask to have a CT of the abdomen/pelvis done or an MRI. It could be a number of things. When you mention urinary frequency and bloating I think of interstitial cystitis i.e. painful bladder syndrome which can mimic gynecological problems.
