I have had abdominal swelling for over two months now. I look like I am 4-months pregnant. I have pressure on my bladder (feel the need to urinate frequently) my bowels are either very hard and very thin or diarreah. My lower back is killing me and I have indigestion and nausea and extreme tiredness.. I first went to a doctor whom I didn't know and all she did was put me on blood pressure medication and told me to take pepsid-ac for GERD. I have had problems with my stomach in the past, ulcers, but this was so very different. She did not order a ultrasound. I then went to my Ob/GYN doctor and she found a mass on my ovary 3x3 centimeter and said it will probably go away. She also ordered a CA-125 which came back with a 6-normal. My question is; would a cysts this small cause these symptoms? I cannot imagine going on like this forever. Why am I having these symptoms if it's nothing to worry about? This is NOT NORMAL for me, what else can I do?
