Common Questions and Answers about Ovarian cysts and numbness

ovarian-cysts

Has anyone out there had depression, anxiety and numbness when Herxing? I am having some bad spells of crying, which is making me feel somewhat anxious. I don't like taking anxiety pills cause they make me so drowsy that I barely function. As it is, I'm barely functioning now. I recently had surgery of a complete hysterectomy and just read that a lot of these are because of tumors directly related to lyme bacteria.
The Huge football size cysts were found by an Ultrasound scan to look for a missing coil, accidently they found ovarian cysts, and here is my Story( sorry about the bad grammar ) I am a 30 year old female Living in the UK, NO kids a little heavy period due to coil fitted in 1 year ago. Have family history of Ovarian Cysts ( Mom had a cyst few years ago at the age of 54).
I haven't had experience with this but would suspect there is some kind of nerve damage, pressure being placed on the area (check for internal inflammation or even ovarian cysts), or a circulatory problem. Do get to your doctor to have it checked out as soon as possible.
I have been experiencing lots of low back pain and leg pain and numbness and pain during menstration. Can I attribute all of these to the dermoid? Any help or assistance is appreciated!! Thanks.
From the research I've seen, its a LOT to worry about and I think this should be removed and biopsied right away! My symptoms include (and are worsening each day) extreme indigestion, nausea (24/7) unexplained upper abdominal pain, lower back pain, pain and numbness in my thighs, lower abdominal pain, no menstruation (although a slight amount of vaginal bleeding). HELP!!!!
One doctor referred me to physical therapy which seems to help some days, but it's not helping long term. I have numbness in my abdomen and in my low back and have bowel and bladder issues and pain and pain in my ribs, hips and legs. When I do any bending or twisting I get naseous and light headed and am in pain for days afterwards.
This is certainly not an expert opinion, but just wanted to let you know what I've noticed myself. I saw the ultrasound of my cyst and honestly the picture quality is **** and they really can't see a whole lot. After the cyst removal I had remembered that I had an MRI last Sept to check for a lower back problem due to tingling/numbness in my left leg (long story). I pulled out that MRI and low & behold there was the cyst, glaring right at me.
It is very unlikely that the ovarian cysts would cause pain the neck although back pain is a possibility. I would suggest you to get an X ray or a CT scan of the cervical spine and back done one more time, since it does seem to be a nerve compression issue. Your symptoms could also be due to peripheral neuropathy. Please get yourself evaluated by a neurologist.
It has got to the point where it is difficult to sal around, my legs buckle, give out, etc. I am 25 with a history of ovarian cysts and preterm delivery but am in great health, fit and active, I eat great and practice yoga almost daily. Nothing I've tried has helped and I finally called a doctor but they can't get me in for 2-3 weeks and since this only happens/affects me while I'm menstruating, that seems pointless.
5 weeks and scheduled a second appt. explaining the numbness. She said it was normal and proceeded to stick needles this time in both feet, my forearms, and belly, lower back and one on the top of my head. I was given the herbs the same day. The numbness dissipated after a few days but again, exactly one week later, I noticed a very slight tingling/burning sensation in my left forearm and pinky finger. The toe is much better but still slightly numb.
Hi there and welcome to the forum. Actually ovarian cysts are pretty common. We often have them and they cause a lot of discomfort during mensturation and they pass on their own. This has happened to me personally. There are checks and balances in place that I'm sure your doctor has institutded to see if it is cancerous. One is a ca25 blood test which detects ovarian cancer. You could ask for that.
I have my blood work ran for the CA-125 and it came back at 61 and my family has a history of breast and ovarian cancer as well. My doctor thinks there may be endometriosis but we'll see! I just pray all goes well tomorrow. I encourage you to check out the other postings because there is a lot of helpful information from previous experience. I wouldn't worry about the other 3cm cyst. I have a 2.
Hi, I am 30 years old and have been having horrible back pain and numbness in my left groin area. During a recent MRI for my lower back, the radiologist found a 3cm x4 cm cyst inside my right ovary which he thought to be a Dermoid. I had a follow up TVUS and the doctor told me that it was a complex cyst within my right ovary with a septation and areas of nodularity and had no characteristics of a dermoid. They also found a solid lesion of 1CM iwithin my left ovary.
I had a similar pain experience, late diagnosed 3 cysts on my right ovarian. But the pain is reduced by exercise a year ago. I walk 1 mile every day even when I was experiencing an extreme pain. Now I no longer use pain pill, and not that pain any more. Also drink lots of warm water during the period helps too.
You mention "severe back pain,leg pain, numbness and pain in vaginal/rectum areas and inner left thigh and bladder and bowel probs" and since you quote your doc as describing you as a lady, I guess we can assume you are female. :) I've been spending some time over in the ovarian cancer support forum, and the symptoms you describe sound like some of the gyn problems discussed over there, many of which are not actually cancer, but things like ovarian cysts, endometriosis, etc.
Often it happens in one eys causing it to droop, sometime not as dialated as the other eye and cause sweating and numbness on one side of the face. I would see your doctor and ask about this condition. Look up the symptoms on the internet and take it to your doctor. I hope this helps and I hope you are feeling better soon.
Is it possible to have pain and numbness to my left outer thigh related to this cyst? The numbness and pain is recent, within the last week.
I was told that the cancer was caused by the endometriosis that i had .i also had 16 large fibroids and 2 complex cysts . I had a total hysterectomy but no lymph nodes or omentum removed during surgery . my question is , what are my chances of a cure ? I have only found very gloomy articles on this particular cancer . I had the cells inside 1 ovary only that was encapsulated and the peronetal washings were clear . My ca125 before surgery was 500 and the last one was 8 .
Over the past two years I've delevloped many ovarian cysts, mainly on the right. Some simple and some complexed. Never needed removal. Usually around the size of 5cm's each time. I recently was dignosed with one measuring 5.3cm's. I am having EXTREME pain and vomiting and nausea. Went to er and was told it is ruptured so was sent home. I'm still in a ton of pain on high pain meds and not eating well. I am wondering could i request the doc to remove the whole ovary???
Hi There, 1. if the Ct scan and ultrasound reports are actually calling the ovarian cysts "dermoids" then the chance of malignancy is low. Dermoids are benign tumors from the egg cells of the ovaries. They are the most common tumor of the ovaries. 25 % of the time they are bilateral. Dermoids have a very distinctive look on ultrasound. 2. Growths on the ovaries can press on the inside of the pelvis and cause pain 3. It sounds like you have been given some surgical options.
I am 29 and have two sons aged 8 & 9, ive suffered ovarian cysts since having them, mostly hemorraghic. They are diagnosed at 4- 5 cm each time i have u/s so am advised to wait and see. They disperse in the end and no surgery is needed.
In 2 weeks I am going to have a laparoscopy done because they think that it might be Ovarian cysts that have caused scar tissue on my ovaries. Most of the time the pain comes the more I walk or if I lay on it the wrong way. I hope this helps you a little.
Hi! I'm so glad I found this site and I hope someone "might" have a thought on what i've been dealing with. Feb 05' I called my family doc and told him I thought I had a kidney infection because of right side flank pain. They found a 10cm cyst on my right ovary which 3 days later they removed laproscopy. A month after my right flank pain returned and when I am due for my menstrual cycle my flank pain "thumps" even worse.
I had an baby got an epidural,since the epidural I been having severe lower back pain and numbness and tingling in my right. Now this what the doctor have told me since. Before I tell can tell you can you tell me the probem.One doctor told me I haveBack Pain with Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have MS and the MS is called Arthralgia and Muscle problem.
Hi there. Sorry you are having a hard time. Take a look at the health pages for this site and you will see one on types of cysts. Did you get any info on the types from your ultrasounds? Treatment really depends on your age, whether you are pre or post menopausal, the type of cyst, your results of a CA-125 blood test, and whether you have had previous surgeries or not.
I am experiencing bloated lower abdomen with pain and pressure. I have to go urinate every hour. I feel lower back pain. I also feel numbness down both my legs. My lower abdomen is so tender I can't even wear pants right now. I have to wear a dress all the time. Are these symptoms normal? My gynecologist told me my condition is caused by endometriosis. He told me that I need to have a laparatomy done because it is a complex cyst.
Throughout this ordeal I have had many symptoms that accompany ovarian cancer. Abdominal swelling, left arm and leg numbness, incredible fatigue, frequent urination, digestive disturbances. Hence, that is where my quest began. I must mention that eight years ago I had an ovarian dermoid cyst spontaneously rupture and presented to the ER with peritonitis. This is a very rare occurrence. Trust your instincts, pray for wisdom and support, be persistent.
//www.4woman.gov/faq/ovarian_cysts.htm What are the symptoms of ovarian cysts? Many women have ovarian cysts without having any symptoms.
