So I had been told that I might have Ovarian Cysts and just got back from the OB/GYN who said that I don't have any Cysts or (thank goodness) tumors on my ovary. She suggested that I get a Colonoscopy because the Colon is in the same place where I am having pain. So I looked up Colon disease and aside from the scary colon cancer it refers to Inflammatory Bowel Disease which it says is autoimmune and consists of Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease. Autoimmune, that sounds familiar!
So I will call the gastroenterologist tomorrow and set up an appointment and plan for a colonoscopy (which freaks me out more than a little!) but wondered if anyone has one of those two things and it's like what I'm experiencing. Mostly what I have is pain, in my lower abdomen - low enough-near my pelvic region that I thought it was ovaries. It has been off and on dull pain for a couple months then last week I had a couple episodes of brief sharp pain and now it's pretty persistent dull pain again. It started on both sides but now is mostly my left. I also have a mild amount of constipation (no diarrhea), and some tiredness. I've slowly been gaining a bit of weight. Any of this ring a bell?
