Desperate!!!! Pelvic pain anyone (woman) scared!!!
« on: May 01, 2014, 08:16:29 PM »
My anxiety has been through the roof lately. Mainly my health anxiety. I'm a hypochondriac....like really bad. So about 3 days ago I started getting low pelvic pains. Not anything severe just annoying. So I went to doc today. No bladder infection or anything. But he's running off this long list of ovarian cancer, cervical cancer, colon cancer. He's like it could be something simple or something severe. So he felt around my pelvis and said everything felt normal. He did a pap but I gotta wait for results. He also did blood work to check my thyroid. I'm in a complete panic right now awaiting the results. I'm so scared it's something bad. I'm 28 years old. I just wanna cry. I'm scared it's gonna be bad :-/ you probably think I sound nuts. Just trying to find reassurance.

I'm surprised your doctor jumped right to the worst case scenarios.  There are other reasons for pelvic pain.  I personally have it from adhesions from prior c-sections.  Other possible reasons for pelvic pain are ovulation, endometriosis.  I wouldn't worry too much about it, but I know it's hard not too.  Did the doctor do an ultrasound?  That might help put your mind at ease.

No ultrasound. Just did pelvic exam and said he didn't feel anything when palates me. I had an abnormal pap in February and did further testing and no precancerous stuff was found so he said he'd wait a year to do another pap. I'm just scared this pain has something to do with the abnormal pap and I have cervical cancer. Yea. I hate that he jumped to the worst case stuff. He's like " I'm not trying to scare you but we need to talk about everything". So ofcourse I googled and the most severe stuff is what came up. And I can't stop dwelling. I'm trying to patiently await the results but I'm so scared and my panic is through the roof :-/

I was actually at my gyno today and had a pelvic exam done.  We talked extensively about adhesions since I've had 3 c-sections.  It's very very likely you have an adhesion in there.  Start paying attention to when in your cycle you feel the pain.  That will help to narrow down possible causes.  And, I highly doubt it's cervical cancer.  That is one of the absolute slowest growing cancers.  If your doc wants to wait a year to repeat the pap, then he's confident it's not cervical cancer.

Your doctor does not sound like a useful guy to have around when you're having health anxiety. 

I had pelvic pain off and on for ages.  Ovarian cysts/endometriomas.  No huge deal.

Wow!  I'd change doctors!!!   I get that a LOT on and off throughout my life (I'm 55).  My mom had it and when she went to her doctor he said to wait until she got her period and if it doesn't go away to come back (that was about 3 weeks) - it did go away after her period.  I had it the same way and I recalled what my mom said so I waited until after my period and I still had it, but being I am terrified of doctors I waited longer and it finally DID go away, in a little over a MONTH!   I STILL get that at times and I'm 3 years post menopause.   
Only 3 days and your doctor scares the living you know what out of you??  I'd be so ticked off!
I'm glad I could still modify this answer...  I forgot to add that once I TOLD my gyno about that at an exam at the time I was HAVING some of that dull pain and he just blew it off!  He didn't even say anything when I told him!

I have had pelvic pain on and off for years. I did have an endometrioma years ago, which caused some pain, but otherwise my pain came from adhesions from the endometrioma surgery and from muscle pain. There are several muscles in your lower back and abdomen that cause pelvic pain. Most of my pelvic pain actually originates from the iliopsoas muscle. Try getting a massage and see if that helps. If it persists, and it's not muscular in origin, you may want to request an ultrasound. But, seriously, pelvic pain is so common - especially in women of child-bearing age. Don't worry!

Wow, your doctor is something else - jumping to cancer being a possibility.  I couple of years ago I had pelvic pain for six months. It turned out to be a pulled muscle and I just had to work on fixing that. There can be many benign reasons for Pelvic pain.

I think the next step should be to get an U/S. It's prob a cyst or something.
