Hi everyone. Thank you for reading and listening to my concerns.
I have had stomach ache in my lower abdomin now for around 2 weeks. It’s a low pain but being constant it really effects my life. I am struggling with sleep and even getting comfortable at a desk in the office. Along with this I sometimes get sharper pains in my lower left side. Other symptoms I have include nausea, lower back ache, abdominal swelling/bloating (I look four month pregnant. Constantly so. I’m noticing in my clothes and this has happened the last week so couldn’t be weight. I’ve been told I look like I’ve lost it generally) picture attached. I also feel the urge to wee more.
My docs have been great. Listening to my worries and trying to find a solution. I had private health care so asked to be referred for an ultrasound after other tests came back negative. Had an abdominal ultrasound sound today and she said everything looked normal. I cried afterwards because I was so hopeful to get answers to my pain and I am beginning to feel crazy. But I am in pain all the time. Only pain meds take the edge off.
I managed to get back to my docs who once again listened to my worries amazingly. My mum has suffered a lot with cysts and has had an ovary removed so I mentioned this. He is now asking for blood tests and stool samples to try and help me find an answer. The blood test includes the CA125 test and my symptoms seem to point to the possibility of gynae problems.
I just wanted to reach out to see if anyone else had had symptoms like these. I am 23 years old and starting to get so upset and frustrated with the constant pain.
