Hello,

These symptoms could be due to ectopic pregnancy.

Get your blood beta HCG levels to rule out the possibility of pregnancy and ultrasound to rule out the possibility of ectopic pregnancy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Richa Agarwal, OBGYN
