Hello everyone. Wanted to say thank you tog everyone who has responded to my posts, I have read and looked into everything you have said, but nothing seems to quite fit what I have going on. To recap; I have been CONSTANTLY bloated for over 5 weeks. It is in my lower abdomen/pelvic region. I have attached a photo that i found on google that looks EXACTLY like my bloating and in the same exact location (mine may be slightly lower). My stomach gets so swollen, that I feel so uncomfortable after meals. But it is not just when I eat, I could go almost all day and not eat, and still be bloated. It DOES get worse when I eat though. I have already tried taking laxatives, which definitely emptied me out (I was using the bathroom all day) and my waist was TINY yet I was still bloated. I went to the ER about a week after bloating had started, they did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis. All they noted was possible ovarian cysts and that one may have ruptured but to correlate with my cycle. I was sent home with pain meds and Dx with ruptured ovarian cysts. I have also went to an OBGYN (which was a new DR that i haven't been too, very unprofessional and did a pelvic exam with out gloves on) and told me i was full of gas and that's why I was bloated and sent me home. I am getting extremely concerned because my bloating is still there, and hasnt improved not even for a day. It has really begun to affect my daily life. I do experience some pain/cramping and pressure in my lower abdomen, kind of similar to period cramps. I have had bouts were I have to apply pressure to empty my bladder.
Health history: I have regular periods. No chance of pregnancy. Negative urine sample for infection. (From ER visit) Normal CBC (from ER visit) I'm a 22 year old female, with Hx of ulcerative colitis and pancreatitis(both of which are under control) On oral contraceptives and have a child.
Any thoughts or guidance would be helpful. Really worrying about this.
