Intermittent sharp pain in the lower abdomen. Cyst in the ovary. Had ablation in the past. Suggestions?

ok, I have experienced intermittent sharp pains and cramping in both sides of my lower abdomen, cervix and rectum, as if I was being stabbed in the ovaries and a stick up my but, to be blunt. The pain has been daily, about five to 8 episodes per day for two weeks, starting suddenly one day. The pain is only in one place at a time, and at different places throughout the day. I had an ultra sound done last wednesday and it said aside from a small cyst on my right ovary, the pelvic exam was normal. I see the doctor tomorrow to discuss other tests.
My bowels have been fine, no bleeding. I am 49 and had an ablation 2 years ago so I haven't had a period since.
I am going crazy dealing with this on top of other stress -

Hi,
Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. After analyzing your symptoms i feel your symptoms are unrelated to ovarian pathology. As you are not having any bowel probelm, GIT pathology is ruled out. After excluding these conditions, I feel you are suffering from pelvic inflammatory disease. I usually give a course of antibiotics for my patients with similar complaints. Hope it might releive your symptoms.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.
Thank you,
Wish you good health.
Regards,
Dr Arif

Hello! My name is Sophia and I am a 16 year old. Last summer I had an ovarian torsion in my right ovary. I had emergency surgery, and was lucky enough to keep my ovary. The torsion was caused by a cyst that burst. When the cyst burst it caused an infection. The infection made my ovary swell to the size of a lemon. Since, it was so big it twisted. I have always had extremely irregular periods. They come about every 4-8 months. I have gone a year without one before. Ever since my surgery I have had this constant pain in my lower right abdominal(I think my ovary). It is always tender to touch. Quite often I get this awful pain in my ovary that last a couple of days. It is a dull ache that radiates down my leg and my lower back. It s a 7 on the pain scale. Last night I had this sharp pain in my ovary. It was very unexpected. I decided to go to bed. This morning my ovary is still very tender and achy. I keep getting that shooting pain a few times randomly. I have kinda nauseous today. Is this something that I should worry about? Should I seek some more medical attention. Thanks for your help.

I am currently being tested for some type of hormone imbalance. I have always suffered with period related problems such as constant thrush with any change in my cycle and bleeding for to long. The blood test so far have confirmed I have a border line under active thyroid and elevated liver enzymes. I seem to be lossing a lot of my hair as well & I have gained a stone in 5 months. here are a few other things I m not sure if there are linked - night sweats / itchy-tingly nipple/ very weak and tired / mood swings / painful intercourse / vaginal dryness/breasts have grown/feeling sick/headaches. i also had a swab a few days ago as I was bleeding (and shouldn t be as the doctor has stopped my periods for 6 months) and the nurse said my cervix was bleeding and looked aggravated she seemed to think i may have a low grade infection.that might explain the low backache and period type pains I m having.I have had a laporoscopy to look for endometriosis but all was clear I was sent away and was told it would get better after a baby this was 3 years ago and since then I have had a baby and it s made everything worse. Please help
