  • It could be many things from a cramp to appendicitis. How long has the pain been around? Fever? Sweating? Chills? If the answers are the pain just started in the last 2-3 days and you have a fever you need to be evaluated by your Dr. Pain of unknown origin that persists shoul;d always be checked out. Things like untreated eptopic or untreated appendicitis can be life threatening.

  • i have had pain about 3 month after the surgery hard pain as if going back thru experience. they did various test and found nothing. i have not had fevers or chills or any other symptoms. now the pain is worse and it gets worse even for vowel. sometimes the pain is so bad i can't even walk. yet doctors can't seem to find the cause.

  • my sister had one and soon after she had small tumors developing on her ovaries...she would be in horrible pain and sometimes her pelvic area would even swell

  • i think you have to have an ultrasound to find them...ask for an ultrasound...have you had one?

  • cysts..not tumors, sorry

  • Absolutely agree with Shay. Sounds like horrific cystic ovaries needs to be ruled out. I have PCOS and it can be excruciating at times.

  • i had ultrasounds done, transvaginal and regular cysts are ruled out. they have scheduled me a colonoscopy because with the pain i have bled from my rectum. i just have no clue wat the problem is.
