Hey, My pain was also on my left side. When someone has Nutcracker Syndrome, the renal vein on the left side is being compressed by the abdominal aorta and superior mesenteric artery causing the blood to flow downward through the left ovarian vein, hence the left sided pain, after time the pain does spread though out the pelvic causing a heavy feeling in the uterus. It almost feels like your caring a bowling ball. It gets worse before your period and when climbing stairs, or standing too long. Do you have groin pain? I'm just curious because I could have stopped at my pelvic congestion diagnosis and thank God I didn't. The doctors never suspected Nutcracker with me. I made them check me for it. Just for for thought. Good luck to you...
