About three months ago my girlfriend started having severe stabbing pains in her lower abdominal area. It was so bad that she got taken into A&E. While she was there and after she got poked and prodded about by three doctors they said it could have been appendicitis, kidney stones or just constipation. After some more prods and pokes they decided to let her go with some laxatives and some very strong pain killers.

She got home and straight away took the laxatives, did her business, pain was still there but i ensured her it would be better by the morning. It wasn't.

We have been back to the hospital twice more and they said that they cannot find anything. We then went to her gp who sorted out some more tests for her and they found that she had an cyst on her ovary which was about the size of a goldball, but according to them, that was not the cause of the pain. Since the first time my girlfriend the cyst had gone down by 2cm.

The pain has not got any worse but it has not got any better either. She is also finding it difficult to sleep and she has had to give up college as well as her job.

We would greatly appreciate it if you could help us.

Thanks a lot,
