Yes I have the same problem. I have pain In my groin left leg back and abdomin.This pain also followed my period. yes it can be a cyst ask your doc for an ultrasound to. I have endometreosis and adenomyosis I also had cysts as well. Make sure you doc is familar with gyno problems. Many are just good for birth and paps smears.
YES, YES, YES a cyst can do this. As the cyst grows it puts pressure on the nerves in the low back and such thus causing them to shoot pains everywhere.
I am going thru the same thing, a CT scan confirmed a cyst. Though its smaller than most, it still causes the same problems.
A CT will let you know for sure. Good luck and keep me posted.
I had posted this last week sometime, but on the doctor question portion of this forum a patient asked the doctor if cysts could cause back pain. This doctor flat-out said she very much doubted it and to seek medical treatment for a slipped disc or back problems. This doctor is not doing ANYONE ANY favors with a response like that. Apparently she has never experienced our situations. I replied to the doctor to read all of these posts for which about 90% have back/leg/groin pain. I have never gotten a response back. Great, huh?
Thank you so much for your responses. The Dr. also told me that I could have a slipped disc or kidney stones. My CT is now scheduled for Friday and I just can't wait because I am just miserable. Trying to keep up with the kids, make dinner, help with homework, etc., etc., is all killing me. I will let you know my results when I get them. Thanks so much for the support! God Bless.
Yeah, I got the kidney stone thing too. All's I can say is be your own advocate, get the written report from all of your tests b/c the doctors don't tell you everything that's on them. My Dr. said I had a small cyst and a little fibroid. Got the report and although it was about what he said, it mentioned the adenomyosis, lyoemoa (or whatever it is) - fibroid and cyst. It's just all there for your to read and research yourself. That is what we need to do - be our own doctors. Good luck - I really feel your pain (get some pain meds - I'm taking vicoprofen and it does take the edge off; sometimes it takes the pain away for a couple hours). Take good care. Lilly
I had a large lump in my stomach that I thought was JUST a hernia. I am a small woman and I lift alot of heavy stuff. I got a pain in my lower left back area that was so bad I was crying in church one day. That is what got me to go to the Dr. where after a whirlwind of tests over a 3 day period I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer. My ovaries were 11 cm and 14 cm. I am 50 and post menopausal and they should have been around 2 centimeters. Run to your nearest female Dr and get checked ASAP. They don't call ovarian cancer the diesease that whispers for nothing. I like my oncologist but I am learning that female doctors take us more seriously. Male doctors just don't get it sometimes.
