on monday i woke up with a really bad stabbing pain that was on the right side of my body and it was so bad i couldn't move
i went to the ER and took a catscan (thinking it was my appendix) but it came out fine, and they did an ultrasound on my ovaries (thinking maybe i had a cyst) but it came out OK
they said it could be: the start of something with my appendix; ovarian cyst that ruptured; intestine problems

now the pain went away, but today it was bothering me all day. its actually more near my back today (which makes me think maybe it's my kidney?) it doesnt HURT like it did the first day... it just feels like theres something there and it feels uncomfortable.

have any idea what this could be?

  • I think that you should make an appt with your regular doctor and get some bloodwork. See if there is an infection red/white blood count. I think a CBC. Maybe its a Kidney stone. Or very easily it could be ovarian cyst. But I would think that an ultrasound would catch that. Good luck.

  • A kidney stone should have been picked up on the CT. The kidneys are at the back, but the bladder is in the front. The ureters swing down and forward to enter the bladder. Go to the gynecologist is you think it is related to your menstrual cycle.

  • Poly-cystic Ovarian Cyst. They occur and cause around your period sometimes. When they rupture, the pain can be debilitating. Get an ultrasound of your ovaries. The other option is endometriosis(sp).
