Experiencing pins and needles in groin area

I have an ovarian cyst and just started experiencing pins and needles in my groin area. First of all, is this a signal of things getting worse? I don t have a primary doctor and have an appointment with a GYN in a week. Should I go to the ER now or wait until my appointment?

Unless your pain is severe, or is associated with severe nausea or vomiting, or fever, it is OK to wait until your appointment with a GYN to evaluate you. Your pins and needles feeling may or may not be related to your cyst, and the doctor will be able to tell the difference. It really depends on what type of cyst you have and how large it is whether or not it is dangerous and needs treatment at all, but a GYN doctor can explain all of this to you. It would be helpful for the GYN doctor to be able to review the report of the ultrasound you had that diagnosed the cyst. So if you have severe pain, nausea and vomiting, or a fever, go to the ED for evaluation otherwise it is safe to wait until your appointment.

I hope this answered your question and best wishes,
