Good news, Bad news, So-so news.......actually I'm not so sure there even is news

I went to the OBGYN for a Saline Infusion Sonogram to further explore whatever it is in my uterus. Today's appt. was with a different Dr. than who originally did the ultrasound and then ordered the sonogram. After a few minutes of explaining my symptoms she decided to first do another ultrasound as the sonogram is quite painfull and she wasn't too sure I needed it. Long story short. I did not receive the painful sonogram. There's the good news.

According to today's ultrasound the mass that was in my uterus is no longer there. Hmmmmmm, okay ? Today's Dr. was a bit stumped by the lack of info the first Dr. gave...as he didn't write down hardly anything. I explained that because of this lack of information was why I have been so nervous. He never gave me any idea as to what could be going on. All he ever said was, "Your uterine walls look a little too thick and there seems to be a dark mass over here." There's the so-so news.
So with no polyps or fibroids visable by ultrasound, I now have an appt with a Gastrointestinal Dr. Today's Dr. said she thought that there could be something in my GI making me feel sick. So as it stands, I see another Dr. in 3 weeks and then go back to the OBGYN in about 5 weeks.

The bad news, I still am in pain and feel sick. Every time I try to find things on the internet myself, it says "you're pregnant". I have blood test results that say "no way". Needless to say, I'm frustrated.

So I will continue to sit here with my

nausea
cramping pain in the lower right area of my pelvic
pain in my back directly opposite of my pelvic
the feeling like something is pushing on my bladder
and the feeling like my pelvic area is "heavy"

hey, other than that I fee like a Million Pesos!

do we live parallel lives? we both have 3 year olds and 1 yeard olds..hmm. i had a saline ultrasound last week as well- uncomfortable, but not painful. the regular ultrasounds are so much more fun:) the trials of being a woman...:)

I'm so sorry that you're not feeling well and that your doctors don't know what's going on. I've had one of those ultrasounds before. Be glad you didn't have to do that. It's no picnic! Take good care of yourself!

I hope you can get to the bottom of this, Aimee. I'm sorry you're not feeling well and are having to worry about what is wrong. Take care of yourself.

Okay, I know you'll think I'm wacky but have you thought about going to an accupuncturist? Whether you think they can help the cause or not, no matter, they are great with pain management. I started seeing one about 2 years ago and am a convert now. Either way, I hope you get to feeling better soon and that you get to the bottom of this. Take care!

I am so sorry that you don't have an answer yet. Feeling sick for that long is, well, sickening. Hope you feel better soon.

Is there a chance you could have endometriosis? It doesn't show up on regualr ultrasounds, and I have a lot of those same symptoms every month before my period. What a bummer! I know the frustration of not feeling well and not knowing why. I hope you're feeling better soon.
