I was shocked when I learned that my cyst was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> ovary, since the intense pain I feel is <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the right <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. I asked my doctor if it was possible for the pain to rediate to the opposite side, and he said yes, rarely.
Did pregnancy tests, all negative. I had horrible <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>bloating</span>, cramping and pain <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> near ovary. I have this every time period is due. I got my next period, which just finished yesterday. Have had the ovary pain for about 3-4 weeks now, almost feels like a stitch. Hurts when I push to go to toilet, and even hurts while walking, every time I take a step with left leg. I don't have any children, and I also suffer from IBS, and schiatica, so not sure if it's from these things or my ovary.

Dr said I don't have to go to Er. Please ladies tell me something.

for about a week before i found out, people were concerned thinking i was sexually active and prgnant because of massive bloating of my stomach...i was also <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my period. i had sharp pains in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> for a week...painful enough for me to scream everytime. they saw i had two masses on a normal ultrasound and then a catscan. now i am waiting for my surgery date. you should seriously consider going to have a catscan and ultrasound done, before it could become dangerous to your health.
I am prednisone dependent for 20 years (10 mg daily) After dinner I seem to get terribly bloated. No matter what I seem to eat I get this terrible movement that you can see and feel, it is like when you are pregnant and the baby is moving (this is the best way to explain it). Sometimes the pain is worse on the right, but then it moves left (I do have diviticulitis & hiatal hernia(no problem here I stay away from seeds and spicy foods). I do suffer from RA for over 20 years.
I have been reading all of the forum entries about <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> rib pain and feel relieved that I am not alone. Initially my pain started years ago as a reaction to certain foods but it has progressed. it is inconsistent and it has increased in frequency to several times a week and is usually pretty intense. I feel nausea and clammy during the episodes which can last 10 minutes to several hours. afterwards i have to sleep because i am exhausted.

I have one area of my intestine which down right hurts when I get constipated <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>. Basically my system works <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> gravity and I get full. I feel urgency but nothing happens. I was up half the night the last few nights with pain. I think the heat also makes it worse like everything else. I have to eat small meals of fruits and vegetables all day long. And minimal lean meat. When its really bad fruit smoothies. Also drink lots of water.
The pain is generally located in the lower abdomen, often <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span>; however, the location and character of the pain can vary widely.

sometimes muscles ache, sometimes joints hurt and are stiff, sometimes burning here there and everywhere (not necessarily on on side or limb) it feels like a sunburn...not really numbness, but tingling or heated sensations <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> of face...
I had a small cyst <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> ovary when I was pregnant, and ended up having several US to check <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>on</span> it throughout my pregnancy, and it didn't go away but they felt it wasn't a problem. Since then, every pelvic exam I've had, I've asked my gyn if he/she could feel anything in that area, and the answer was always no. I seriously think my cyst never went away, and just started to get bigger, resulting in my surgery last week. I kept wondering why I couldn't lose the pregnancy weight.
I was having stomach in between this time, where I'd have pain in my stomach and the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>left</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>side</span> under my rib cage. This seemed to get MUCH worse if I used an enema and still does. A couple months ago (prior to Augmentin) I had an endoscopy done and everything looked good. I also had an ultrasound of my entire abdomen and all the organs looked good. Could I still possibly have Gastroparesis? That's what I am afraid of. I am also dealing with lazy bowel, have had it since I was 10.

He has had the traditional rounds of prednisone and antibiotics, but to no avail.
