hi, i hope someone can give me some help. here is my story...winter 2007 i started getting this strange discomfort in my lower left side near my stomach, it sort of felt all bloated on one side and heavy and uncomfortable. so just before christmas i ended up at the emergancy doctors and they said it was a water infection that becuase had been left for a while had backed up to my kidneys, so they gave me some anti-biotics and i felt rubbish all christmas then after christmas i still had most of the same symptoms so i went back to the doctors who did some tests and internal examinations and they said it might be something to do with my overies so they sent me for a ultrasound scan, which didn't show anything but i started to feel better after this and my symtoms went away compleatly, by this time it was about march 2008, fast forward to christmas 2008 i start getting some similar symptoms to what i had before but not as bad, now its jan and i have all the symptoms back again, my lower left side feels huge and heavy but it doesnt look swollen and sometimes it feels a bit tight and i get stitch when i walk sometimes. i just wondered if anyone had experienced anything like this or knew what it might be? i don't want to have to go back to the doctors again for them to be as clueless as they were before. thanks for any help! xxx
