Safe & ineffective: Activated charcoal is safe but is unlikely to address your symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor and discuss if you may be depressed. Counter-intuitive as it may seem, exercise may help. Start with low intensity exercise such as walking and gradually increase the intensity as tolerated. ...Read more

Pelvic/Transvag sono on 8/22 showed partially ruptured ovarian cyst with small amount of free fluid. Would this cause bloating and abdominal fullness?

Yes: When you ovulate, a cyst on your ovary ruptures to release the egg, and some fluid escapes into your abdomen. This can cause an initial sharp pain, or a sense of fullness or bloating. If it gets worse, or doesn't go away within 2-3 days, see your doctor. ...Read more
