I started having pain in my lower left quadrant about 2 1/2 months ago. I thought it was an ovarian cyst. An ultrasound didn't show anything. Then I did a urine test in her office and blood showed up (however when she sent it to the lab they didn't detect blood, or infection). I then had a CT scan (no contrast) to look for a kidney stone stuck in the ureter. The scan did not show any abnormalities. So I went to my GI doc, and since pain was persisting, decided to do a colonoscopy. Although I have mild inflamation in the cecal area (right side), there was NO inflamation where I am feeling the pain. My gynocologist said she didn't believe my pain was gynocological, but that the next step would be a laparotomy. The pain sometimes radiates to my left lower back. If I press on the area, it is tender. Also have rebound tenderness (when I press down slowly, then let go real fast, it hurts). Now I am feeling I should go to a urologist, because it may be my ureter. Sometimes I get more twinges of pain when I go to the bathroom. It is getting worse, as the pain hurts when I move around, and in the middle of the night. It's pretty much constant, but sometimes more or less intense.
I would so appreciate any advise.
This is really difficult to deal with. I am constantly distracted by the pain, and it is not going away. I have "probable" Behcet's disease - an inflammatory autoimmune disease, so I never know if a symptom is related to that. But this is scaring me now, and really affecting my life.
