I'm 46 and have been having sharp shooting pains on each side of my pelvic area, just in from the hip bone. It started on right side, then moved to left side. My uterus is also very tender when I slightly press over the area. I have had a couple of ovarian cysts rupture in the past - about a year and a half apart, the last one ruptured in October, a few months ago. I also run a daily lowgrade fever of about 99.5 and feel kind of flu-y. Had bloodwork done after rupture and OBGYN said to take more Vitamin D, which I do. Do I need to have this checked out? i couldn't tell you if my periods are irregular b/c I never track them although the last period was about 2 weeks ago and it seemed like I had one pretty close before that. Input anyone?
