Last summer I started to get this pain on the lower right side of my back that would sometimes shift to my left side, or radiate downwards to the point of making my leg go partially numb. I had MRIs, which were sent to one of the top chiropractors in the nation. No luck, and the pain got worse and more centered.
So I went to a gynecologist. I'm 20 years old, not sexually active, and have never had regular periods in my life. I'd get maybe 4 a year, and they'd last approximately eight days, very heavy. So I had an external and internal sonogram after four months of being on a birth control pill to try and regulate my periods. The ultrasounds showed nothing wrong. The pain at times was so bad, I'd stay awake all night sobbing, and if someone had offered me a hysterectomy to make the pain go away, I'd have taken it.
After 12 doctors visits in five months, I gave up. On the birth control pill, the pain has now gotten tolerable, and is focused on my lower right side, and radiates down to my vaginal area, where I sometimes get swollen lumps that wax and wane.
Currently the only thing I can really do is a laproscopy, but I thought I'd try posting here to see if anyone has any insights first. There were no visible cysts or abnormalities. Thank you guys so, so much in advance for taking the time to read this!
