Cyst rupture vs partial torsion
I was wondering if anyone could offer insight on symptoms of cyst rupture vs partial torsion? I was diagnosed with a large cyst last year along with PCOS. The cyst was large enough that it was causing pain and pressure, and that pain and pressure has been getting worse ever since. My Gyn wanted to wait and see and while we were waiting and seeing I lost medical insurance, so I have not been able to follow-up.
A couple of days ago I felt two sharp stabbing pains in my lower left back. Since then, I have had a dull ache on the left side just above my hip, as well as in the lower left pelvic area. The pain worsens when I lay down or twist. I also have constipation because the inability to twist makes hygiene difficult, so I have been avoiding going to the bathroom as much as possible.
The pain has been getting worse over the last two days. As of tonight, the pain is so bad when i lay down that I can't stay laying down.
I'm trying to determine if this is a rupture or a partial torsion. I don't think it is a kidney stone, since I don't have any urinary symptoms.
I had full torsion on my right side, leading to surgery and loss of the ovary several years ago. So, I know what that feels like. This does not feel like that. The pain is concentrated in the area above my hip on the left side.
I'm trying to determine if/when I should go to the ER. All they will do for a rupture is send me home with a prescription for painkillers, so I'd rather not end up with another medical bill for that.
