First off, my thanks to you amateur and professional medical sleuths. You do a great service for the Internet and I salute you.
I'm a 26-year-old female in excellent shape. So when I started getting sick a few months ago I was concerned. I had the following symptoms:
- abdominal pain
- bowel issues (constipation, diarrhea, weird stools)
- frequent urination
- severe bloating
- pelvic pain, sometimes intense
They did an upper endoscopy and found mild inflammation and nothing more. After an abdominal ultrasound everything checked out except for a few spots on the liver. I figured they were just harmless growths but the doctor insisted I have an MRI. Sure enough, the liver spots were fine, but they also found an ovarian cyst. This worries me because my mother had ovarian cysts that ruptured violently; she almost died when I was very young. I'm also worried because I have amenorrhea. I know ovarian cysts are normal but I don't have cycles and I have had other menstrual problems in the past.
It's been a few months and I still have the abdominal pain. My bowel issues seem to have worked out for the most part, but I'm still urinating around 15 times a day even when I try not to drink too much water. And I'm still so bloated. They just found the ovarian cyst this week, do you think it could be related? Or am I just a crazy person?
