well. let me share my problems and thoughts (this is going to push the TMI button I just know it!
I am currently undiagnosed with anything because the cost of just the office visit at the gyno, is $30 less than a weeks paycheck.
here's what I get:
I have random sharp pains shoot through my left ovarie whenever it feels like it. When this happens, I also swell up like a balloon and look about 7 months pregnant. I have had and have had treated a rather large cyst on my uterus.
I also have times where sex causes me more pain than I can compensate with pleasure and its horrible pain, and usually, position/depth related.
I have endo, I'm almost 100% sure of it. when I get my period I cannot get up at all. If I do, I get dizzy, pass out, and will puke because I can't function even slightly in that amount of pain, its too much for my body to handle. I can feel the whatever they're called that form outside the uterus trying to fall out and its this god aweful ripping pain that I describe as the feeling of being sawed open with a plastic spoon (yes, spoon) and knife.
about two weeks before my period my left ovary (which I assume is the polycystic one) Swells up, gets hard, and hurts. Often times sudden pressure like leaning on something, will cause a sharp shooting pain through my whole lower body. I also get the pleasantry of feeling cysts pop, and ooze...its gross. This is also around the time it hurts me to wear pants. I can also feel the tilt in my uterus, and that is incredibly even more unpleasant.
It sounds like you may have a cyst. the one I actually went to the doctor for, got so bad I could not walk, sit, lay, stand, I couldn't do anything I just felt heavy, in pain, and swollen. its a really weird feeling, its different from my endo pains, and somewhat similar to what you feel, although, everyone describes everything differently, and i tend to go over board on specific details. I've had these problems since I was 14 and started my period, and my mom also had them up until her hystorectomy (ha, sp?)
if its something you can live with, I wouldn't rush yet. Seems like its probably a cyst, which is really not that HUGE of an ordeal. By the time the found mine it had started to burst anyways, and they just gave me some meds and sent me home. (over a grand later) They'll probably do the exam, want an ultra sound, and then do consultation and go from there.
it's not techincally "normal" but its rather common.
