Hi guys, I'm new here and I don't know if you guys can help. I had an op in the summer, confirming I do have endometriosis on my left side, bowels and bladder. So amazing to finally have a diagnosis after years of suffering. However, the other night I woke up with extreme, unexplainable, severe, stabbing pain on my lower right hand side which sent shocks all throughout my pelvis. It lasted half an hour, to the point where I was screaming. I went to the doc yesterday and he shrugged it off as a freak incident, but it didn't feel normal. I didn't have endometriosis on my right hand side when the operation happened, but could it have developed there since the summer or be ovarian cysts? Is it a pain people have had before, as I started my period yesterday evening. Would love to hear if anyone else has experienced the same thing to know its linked!
Freak Pain on Right Hand Side: Hi guys, I'm... - Endometriosis UK
I have had excruciating pain on and off in my right hand side which they thought was appendicitis.
I have 1 cyst.
It’s not normal to be in that level of pain.
Stick to your guns as the saying goes and go back to your GP, change GP if you need to. It’s you that’s in pain, nobody else and it’s your right to know what’s going on with your body 💕x
The doctor yesterday said its either a warning sign from my appendix or an ovarian cyst. He just said the most bazaar thing was that the pain completely disappeared, so couldn't work it out and sent me home. I called up my gynaecologist and am having a scan next week fingers crossed I get an answer! xx
I had the same thing but had ignored the infrequent quick stabbing pains i got on that side over the last year.
I've also had one previous surgery with endo removed but no cysts.
Ended up having the same pains you describe now, one sided and very often, pulling sensation too.
Ultrasound has shown a 5.6cm endometrioma cyst on my ovary so i'd say yours sounds similar!
