Ovarian Cysts Symptoms

I have never posted to anything like this before, so I apologize if this gets lengthy. Around November I started having pelvic pain and couldn't really eat very much. I was also nauseous off and on. Over the next couple of months, it seemed as though I kept getting some sort of stomach bug-tired, nauseous, pain. As time has gone on, I don't feel nauseous, but I do have many other symptoms that are always there...pelvic pain, abdominal pain and fullness, fatigue, can't eat-get full quickly and stomach hurts if I eat too much, gas, constipation, irregular periods (sometimes shorter, sometimes longer, sometimes 2x/month-they vary), weight loss. My newest symptom is back pain and occasional pain in upper legs. The pain is always there to some degree. Sometimes it is minimal, other times it is barely tolerable. At times it hurts to walk because of the pain or pressure in the pelvic and abdominal area. It also hurts to lift anything heavy. It is also very hard to get comfortable laying down in bed and sometimes even to sit.

I went to the Dr a couple of weeks ago. She did a complete work up on me. (I should have gone sooner, but just recently got health ins. Plus, I'm not one to run to the Dr over much). She did a pelvic exam, CBC, Ct scan, chest X-ray. The blood work came back fine, as did the chest x-ray. The Ct scan showed that I have a couple of cysts on right ovary. I don't recall the size.

She has referred me to a GI Dr and also a gynecologist. They got me in quickly, both of those appts are next week. I know that cysts are normal for women and can come and go. What concerns me is the length of time I've been feeling bad. It doesn't seem "normal" to me to be in pain for this long, to be this tired or to keep getting worse/getting more symptoms as time goes on. It takes all I have to get through the work day. The more I'm up and around, the worse I hurt and can't do much in the evenings. This is the opposite of how I typically am. I am a very active, busy 39 year old mom of 3. I go, go, go. That's what I do-always! SO, this to me is very troubling and I really don't know what to think. I just feel like there is something more wrong that just a couple of simple, normal cysts.

So sorry this is long, but I don't really know how to sum it up shorter...and just really need to vent! Does anyone have any similar symptoms, stories or suggestions. Words of advice? Thanks in advance!
