hello! I'm new, My name is meghan. I live in California, and i was recently diagnosed with an ovarian cyst. It all started back in August when i started getting my period every other week for about 9 weeks straight. I have no insurance, and am on the county's "inability to pay" program. So, from the looks and sounds of it, i'm doomed.
I finally had an ultrasound in January, having to wait for 6 weeks, and then got the results very hastily from a doctor after waiting about an hour and fifteen minutes. She said, it's just a cyst, and to make an appt with an OBGYN.
Before i found this out, they put me on progesterone for ten days which seemed to help. I am opposed to birth control, and have a history of Cervical/Ovarian cancer in my family, so naturally i woudl prefer if they just removed the cyst rght away. I've looked and looked at symptoms. And i have had a lot of them, nausea, fatigued, but the WORST is the mood swings. I have become paranoid, and rash, and overly analytical. Things in my relationship with my boyfriend have been wretched, but i can honestly say, that this is just recent and i have nothing to do but lash out.
I became most worried when last night i screamed and yelled and cried and because physical. I took myself out of the situation right away and have some violence issues, but have learned over about 13 years, to control them. But last night, I didn't think, I walked out of our bedroom after a conversation about me thinking he had lied, seemingly done with the situation, then it was like i had snapped after the fact. I tried to slam the door on him, turned to a walk and kicked it and knocked myself, full force, head first into a wall and screamed obsenities at the top of my lungs, went to the bathroom and locked the door. i sat, and cried and cried and cried. I am usually i VERY conifdent, independant, and strong woman. But, i feel like my foundaton has just aboslutely falled from beneath me, and i cannot control it.
Could there be something being caused by a flood of hormones because of the cyst? I just started my period two days ago, and have had a strange sense of heart burn. Luckily, i used to be a very overweight girl, but when diagnosed with hypothyroid and treated, i lost, physically, 100 pounds about. And am down arond 160ish (i'm 5'10), but while the nausea should be affecting me, i have never lost my affection towards food and a strong sense to ignore what my body tells me, so i can continue to eat, even when i don't want to.
Has anyone else experienced such rash and over the top hormonal and psychological side effects? Other than hypothyroid, i have never been diagnosed with anything else, until now. And i'm breaking down. Any answers? Thank you so much.
