Ovarian cyst and low back pain

Do any of you have very bad low back pain with your cyst? I have a tremendous amount of low back pain. This morning it woke me up and I couldn't lay any way at all that was comfortable. It is hurting as I am typing here at work. I just gnaws and gnaws at me. I feel like nobody can get to the cause of my back pain. Before my hysterectomy, it was due to large fibroids, and now they are gone. I have this cyst on my left ovary that is maybe a little larger than a golf ball. My gyn isn't sure if the cyst is causing it or not. My family DR. said cyst come and go. I didn't think to tell her, yea but this one has been here since June! I just made myself an appointment with a Back and pain relief center. They said the first thing they would do is an MRI which is what others seem to think I need. I just want to find out what is causing it and fix it!! It effects almost everything I do. The only thing that helps it is heat and a pain pill. I have some prescription Anaprox for here at work and they don't even work. I didn't hurt for the last few days and then today it went Bang!! Any advice?

Mine do the same thing!!! Nothing will help until they come out!! When I had my hyster they removed the cyst from my right ovary, then 1 week later it came back, and the back pain was there again...I know just how you feel. I am so sorry for your pain, because I know you can' t get comfortable to lay down, or stand up, it is just miserable.

Ovarian cyst and low back pain

YES YES YES!!! I just found out I have a fairly large cyst and first I had abdominal pain and now I have the dull back ache on the left side. It's almost as bothersome as the abdominal pain!! I can't stand it! I feel your pain The sad thing is nothing seems to help me either I'm on percocet 10 mg, 1-2 tablets every 4-6 hours. That's a lot of narcotic pain medicine and it doesn't do anything but take the edge off. The heat helps more than anything. I see the doctor tomorrow and I'm going to tell him to take it out, I can't live like this!!

Ovarian cyst and low back pain

Just wanted to pop in that I have a cyst on my left ovary. My GYN called me yesterday to check on me and I asked him if it could cause my back to ache on that side and he said yes! Just my experience with my cyst!

Ovarian cyst and low back pain

Isn't it awful? I did not have this one sided back pain with my previous cyst. It's a little weird actually feeling the dull ache on one side. I'm used to lower back pain all the way across like I had with my period.

You can also be quite fatigued from cysts. Especially if they are blood filled because you can become anemic.

Ovarian cyst and low back pain

I had an ovarian cyst and yes it did cause lower back pain. Nothing would stop the pain, even pain meds. I had to have my ovary taken out because the cyst was so large.

Hope you find some relief soon.
