Burning sensation feeling on skin over pelvic area. No other symptoms. Is this nerve damage or just caused from health anxiety and stress? Ovarian cyst

Burning sensation feeling on skin over pelvic area. No other symptoms. Is this nerve damage or just caused from health anxiety and stress? Ovarian cyst

It depends: The pelvic area is from navel to upper thighs. Are you saying lower abdomen or lower back/sacral area; deep or on the skin? Contact dermatitis may be one cause due to detergent or fabric softener in your panties or some other chemicals in that area. If it is not painful to press on lower belly, move the hips or lower back, bend or extend, then not likely internal or spine/joint related.

Cyst (Definition)

A cyst is a structure or mass that consists of a cellular lined sac. It is typically filled with fluid but may be filled with solid material. It can be congenital, traumatic, or acquired. They may develop nearly anywhere in the body and usually require complete excision for eradication or they are likely to recur. Fluid filled sacs that are not cellular lined ...Read more

Can my anxiety prolong or worsen a condition? I have ovarian cyst discomfort it's not going away I keep thinking the worst.

Can my anxiety prolong or worsen a condition? I have ovarian cyst discomfort it's not going away I keep thinking the worst.

Anxiety.: Your anxiety is not likely to worsen an ovarian cyst. Do you have a cyst or is it pain that you believe would be consistent with an ovarian cyst? Marked anxiety can decrease your pain threshold and can turn you into an emotional wreck. If you are guessing about the source of your pain - encourage to get it checked out. Take some of the fear out of this.

Can ovarian cysts cause depression and anxiety?

Can ovarian cysts cause depression and anxiety?

Can bad news? Yes: If the cysts cause an imbalance in the hormones related to ovulation that have any effect on moods, then yes in a physiological way. But even if that's not the case, having ovarian cysts is bad news in the life of a young woman and can cause you to worry about the consequences for childbearing, life-span, etc. Work w/ your obgyn on the cysts and consider supportive therapy to address the feelings.

Ever since my ovarian cyst rupture I got traumatized thinking it was appendix I keep thinking it's chronic appendix I have anxiety what can I do?

Ever since my ovarian cyst rupture I got traumatized thinking it was appendix I keep thinking it's chronic appendix I have anxiety what can I do?

Appendicitis: Chronic appendicitis is very unusual. A ct scan can usually determine whether or not you have appendicitis. Having a cyst rupture can be very dramatic, painful and scary. Luckily, it is hardly ever serious even when it hurts a lot. Your body does a nice job of getting things back to normal by itself. The pain and tenderness may last a number of weeks, but it will get better - don't worry.

How long does it take for ovarian cyst rupture to cure? Had pelvic ultrasound everything okay I have anxiety I keep thinking chronic appendix

Trust pelvic US: Every woman differs, but usually 6-8 weeks. You might want to temporarily ease off sexual activity until you are pain free. If pain worsens or fever, seek medical attention. Doubt it has connection to appendix even though pain is in same general area. Good luck, heal soon.

ANA+ test, speckled, 1:80 with a neg SSA/ SSB (<.20). ENT ran test b/c 80mg Prilosec didn't cure LPR. Lipid, metabolic comp, and CBC all normal. I had an ovarian cyst, caused major anxiety, which I think caused LPR. Autoimmune disease likely?

Lpr: Your ANA titer, although slightly elevated, is nondiagnostic in view of lack of strong clinical findings of an autoimmune disorder. Unfortunately LPR is notoriously unresponsive to antireflux therapy. Your rheumatologist is best qualified to advise you about autoimmune disease.

Daily fatigue, dizziness, anxiety, rectal bleeding & wake with soar kidneys.4yrs ago had ovarian cysts, fallopian tubes removed & eggs frozen. Ideas?

Daily rectal bleeds?: ...may originate in the anal canal, the rectum, or further up the line. Frequent anal sources of bleeding include hemorrhoids & fissures, that may respond to modifying stool texture (fiber, softeners) & topical agents, or require further intervention. Similar bleeds can be seen with anal & rectal cancer, infections, ischemic colitis, diverticular bleeds, inflammatory bowel, etc. Best get checked.

U/S says 5.6cm ovarian cyst resolved, but it still hurts all the time. What could be going on? I'm still having all the same symptoms.

Cystic fluid: If the ovarian cyst resolved by rupturing with fluid accumulation on the lining of the internal body cavity (peritoneum), then that's why you are still symptomatic. Eventually this will resolve if that is the case.

What are the symptoms of appendicitis vs ovarian cyst?  

Onset of pain.: On physical examination, it is often very difficult to distinguish a ruptured right ovarian cyst from appendicitis; however, with a ruptured cyst, the onset of the pain is typically "hyperacute", whereas, with appendicitis the pain often begins like a typical "stomach ache" in the upper or mid abdomen before "moving" to the right lower abdomen.

What causes Hemorragic Ovarian Cyst & what are the symptoms?!

What causes Hemorragic Ovarian Cyst & what are the symptoms?!

Pain!: Ovulation involves a small cyst on the ovary called a follicle. It is very active hormonally and requires a large blood supply. Sometimes something goes wrong and a blood vessel breaks causing bleeding into the follicle that expands with blood and forms a hemorrhagic cyst on the ovary. The most common symptom is pain on one side of your lower abdomen. Best wishes!

What are symptoms of ovarian cyst rupture and what is risk and tx?

Once cyst ruptures there is usually relief of pain but the fluid released may cause irritation to surrounding abdominal structures causing an ache. Risk:once you have one, likely for others. No correlation with direct infertility, tx: bcp can help prevent cyst formation, tx depends on severity.

I'm just wondering, if you have symptoms of an ovarian cyst, does that mean it is a cancerous cyst?

I'm just wondering, if you have symptoms of an ovarian cyst, does that mean it is a cancerous cyst?

No: Most ovarian cysts are benign and you needn't worry. Most ovarian cysts are small and are only felt intermittantly as pain. At your age, the chances of cancer are very small unless you have a strong family history of ovarian and/or breast cancer. Ultrasound are good at detecting the type of cyst you have, so ask your doctor for one if you're worried.
