Kind of the same thing happened to me.  I went to the ER with severe cramping and heavy bleeding. They found a cyst on my left ovary, initially though that was causing the pain.  My cycles were way off, was like 3 weeks late for my period but I was also off the pill and trying to conceive.  Then they did a pregnancy test and it came back positive.  They then checked my hcg levels (pregnancy horomone) and it was like 350.  They couldn't see anyting on the u/s, so they said it's either too early to see anything or I'm miscarrying.  Anyways, a friend of mine told me how her sister had a pregnancy test that was positive and turned out to be a cyst (a big one) which caused a false positive.  I talked to the doctor about that and he said my cyst isn't what caused it and that I am (was) indeed pregnant.  I ended up passing the fetal tissue a few days later.  So, my thinking is that maybe the cyst is causing your body to think your pregnant but your not. Did they do a blood test to check for pregnancy?? If they didn't I would request that and ask them to check your hcg levels.  Anything over 5 is pregnant.  I hope you aren't miscarrying, but then again you really don't know for sure if you are pregnant.  I would google cysts and false pregnancy and see what you find about it.  Best of luck to you.
