I am a 31 year old Female and US Army Disabled Veteran Proud to have served in Afghanistan during "Operation Enduring Freedom" Awarded the Purple Heart, and Army Commendation Medal, Proud Mother, and Fiancée to a wonderful man.
Fibromyalgia diagnosed at 15yrs old, ADHD, PTSD, Spinal Fusion lower back, Carpel Tunnel, and 1/16th aluminum parts lol.
I'm 52 and do not have anymore problems with ovarian cysts, but when I was your age I had many. One was the size of a golf ball. And talk about painful- I would be doubled over. My Gyn. would tell me that they would take care of themselves, and yes they did but it would take me out for a few days too. And that was before I got fibro. UG! That was years ago and you would think they would have more they could do to help with this now. Hopefully someone here can offer some advice on what they have done. It can be so miserable-
It seems like many of us have suffered from ovarian cysts. I'm and old broad now, but when I was in my 20's I had them non stop...the problem was they would never 'break' and two of them got to be the size of grapefruits, wrapped around my intestines and cut off the blood supply. Mine were called 'bleeding cysts with torsion'. So I was bleeding all the time, suffered from severe anemia and finally after four surgeries to remove them, they took out my ovaries and the rest of my 'parts' while they were at it. I have a book that discusses fibro in grueling detail and it seems many woman with fibro have this awful condition..along with other 'female' problems including long, painful, heavy periods, endometriosis, severe PMS...you name it.
I guess it's just one more condition that can go along with this disease!
