For the past few months I have had abdominal pain, pain in my ovarian area, and back pain (low and on side). I also have a problem with bladder urgency. I feel a pressure, constantly. I don't know if these things are related, but I have an acute sinus infec tion and am taking antibotics. I'm really beginning to get worried. My doctor prescribed visicare for the urgency problem, but it doesn't seem to be working. I also have noticed an odor when I sweat. It smells like vinegar/ammonia

:(

  • Have you been to the gynocologist? Sounds like a bladder infection. Would definately get checked out.

  • I saw your symptoms and have most of them except for the ammonia smell. I am also incontinent and have to wear a bladder protection pad every day. I was recently diagnosed with Polycystic ovarian Syndrome (PCOS). I was told by my gyn that I possibly have it. But my endocrinologist gave me the accompanying blood tests and stated that I do not have it. If you haven't yet, try to make an appointment with an endocrinologist. They have certain tests they can give you to detect the subtle changes in hormone levels, etc. I hope this helps you.

  • See a gynecologist who can do a vaginal ultrasound to help diagnose what's going on. this will rule out ovarian cancer. It sounds like endometriosis to me. If ultrasound does not uncover anything, insist on a laparoscopy from the gynecologist to see what's going on.
