I'd first off like to point out that I detest going to the doctor. I was always in and out of the hospital/doctor's office as a child and now I'll refuse to go. However, my mother, my DF and my aunt are now telling me I should probably go to the hospital.
Last February, I was diagnosed with a cyst on my left ovary, and it has not gone away, yet the most the doctor will do is give me painkillers and tell me to deal with it. Well, on New Year's Day, I started to feel really painful cramps and thought that my period was FINALLY coming, since it hasn't reared it's ugly head since October. (I've taken several pregnancy tests, and they've all been negative.) The cramps continued throughout the weekend into Tuesday. I've also had nausea and diarrhea since Monday, except for yesterday when I was just miserable and constipated, but today, I'm back to nausea and diarrhea. On Wednesday morning, I was awoken out of a dead sleep by pain in my abdomen, and that pain fanned out to my chest and my back. Nothing I did made me feel any better, and all I could do was curl up into a ball or vomit. Eventually, the pain went away, but during the day, it came like waves, and would hit me every so often. Wednesday night, I got really dizzy and the pain came back again, and my vision has been blurry. Yesterday, the pain wasn't so bad, and I wasn't as dizzy, but this morning, everything came back full force. I can't even pick up Lela or do much besides lay down, because standing makes me sick, laying on my side makes me heart burn, and there is not enough tylenol in the world to make this stop hurting.
DF is determined to make me go to the doctor, and my mom, who at first told me that I should get over it, now wants me to go and get checked out and both think it's got something to do with my ovarian cyst. I'm just afraid that they're just going to tell me to go home and it will get better.
Has anyone else experienced anything like this? Should I just cave and go to the doctor?
