Abdominal Pain

Posted by | April 17, 2018 | Ask a Doctor, Medical | One Comment

Last night I went to bed in a ton of pain on my lower left abdominal area and woke up with it still hurting fairly bad but still tolerable. I tried to make a heat compress and put it on there and it did relieve some pain but it still felt like someone was stabbing me. I thought it might be cramps, but I have PCOS and my periods come every 4-5 months and I had it about 3 weeks ago. Is there anything I can do to stop some of the pain?

    Thank you for reaching out to BYS. It sounds like you are in a lot of pain. With your diagnosis of PCOS and current symptoms I would recommend seeking your primary doctor if you are still in pain. Abdominal pain can be caused by variety of different issues, but if it continues over a couple of days and/or other symptoms occur (vomiting, bleeding, trouble urinating) it is important to make an appointment with your doctor. Thank you.
