For the last 3-4 years I have been experincing lower left side ab. pain/spasms.
They radiate from back to front for approx. 15-20 minutes mostly at nightmidnight and 6:00am every 1-3 hours. Sometimes during the day but not as often.
I have had numerous test by my gyno. to a neuro-surgeon.
My gyno. found some fibroids {removed the right ovary which had some endometriosis} she said that it is not the cause. All other test were normal.
Could this be psyco. or an actual nerve disease?
Any ideas?:confused:

  • I have the same symptoms. I just have both of my ovaries removed mid-september. One was stuck to an intestine the other to my pelvic. The doc said that both were full of cysts and that each one had at least one golf ball size or better. Yeah! They're gone...no more pain...right? Wrong! I thought for a while they maybe I was having those "phantom pains", but the pain was a little too strong for that. The doc sent me for a CAT scan and the results were cysts on my pancreas, cysts on my bladder, arthritis in my spine, and some sort of pockets growing on the outside of my colon. I'm still dealing with the shock of all of this, but what I am concerned about is that I knew that my ovaries should've been removed three years ago when I had a hysterctomy. Was the source of my pain always the other cysts or did leaving my cystic ovaries in for so long cause them to spread? Do they spread? What causes this? Anyway, see if you doc will send you for a CAT scan. After researching pancreatic cysts I found that is one of the greatest symptoms - left abdominal pain. I only found this out two weeks ago - I am on pain management right now (low dose nartoctics) and I will find out tomorrow what we are going to do other than pain pills. Good luck - I hope you feel better - warm baths and heating pads help lessen the pain some.
