Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, your symptoms can be attributed to many, many different illnesses. Without an in-depth history, examination, and testing it's difficult to tell what could be going on.

I'm : I'm sorry you're not feeling well. There are a number of conditions that could cause your symptoms, including ovarian disorders (cysts or cancer), uterine anomalies (fibroids or cancer), thyroid disease, endometriosis, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease, and others. These symptoms warrant a medical evaluation. If you haven't seen your doctor yet, i strongly suggest that you do so. I've attached several links that provide additional information. I hope things go well for you! http://www.Womenshealth.Gov/publications/our-publications/fact-sheet/ovarian-cysts.Cfm http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/ovarian-cancer/ds00293 http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/uterine-fibroids/ds00078 http://www.Medicinenet.Com/endometriosis/article.Htm http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/celiac-disease/ds00319 http://www.Emedicinehealth.Com/inflammatory_bowel_disease/article_em.Htm.
