A 36-year-old female asked:
Rectal vs. GYN: The symptoms you are describing could be related to constipation/colitis or could be related to endometriosis as well in your age group. I would recommend using a stool softener and if you can maintain a regular bowel regimen and your symptoms persists, you may need to consult a gyn for diagnosis and treatment of possible endometriosis of your colon/bowel.
A 33-year-old female asked:
Ruptured cyst: Have to be careful cause these symptoms can be due to appendicitis. However, rlq with a known ovarian cyst, throbbing/dull aching pain and sudden vomiting is most closely associated with an ovarian cyst that ruptured. These can be very painful and mimic the symptoms of appendicitis. If your fevers don't resolve, need to go to the er asap cause appendicitis is then more likely.
A 44-year-old male asked:
Rheumatologist: The symptoms that you are describing are most consistent with a connective tissue disorder. A rheumatologist will be able to do an extensive workup for connective tissue disorders as well as allergic type disorders. An infectious disease doctor may also be helpful given that the swelling feels warm and could represent an infection. I would start with the rheumatologist first, however.
