Okay, this is a weird question and I thought I'd ask here b/c the Women's Health forum isn't active at all and I didn't think I would get any answers there.

Anyway... Today I went to the dentist to get a filling polished and then afterward DH and I went to the grocery store before coming home. I was perfectly fine until right before we got to the checkout lane. All of a sudden I started getting really bad abdominal pain, to the point of bending me in half. I had to lean on the cart, and then walking out I could barely walk, and sitting down in the car was excruciating. I about started crying. We got home and it kind of ceased a bit, enough for me to get inside, then it would come back again. It went through this about 4 times. While in pain, the pain was terrible. Now it is more like a constant dull pain that is noticeable but not horrible.

I went to the bathroom a while ago and I found out that I am spotting. I NEVER spot in the middle of my cycle. The last time something like this happened I had an ectopic pg. The staff at the hospital didn't believe me that I had my period 2 weeks prior b/c I had a positive pg test. (they actually told me I must have been confused) I needed emergency surgery. I decided now to take a pg test to see what it said, and it was negative. Is it possible to have an ectopic and have a neg pg test? Could I just have an ovarian cyst or something?

Since the excruciating pain subsided I decided not to call the dr, but if it comes back I will. My husband thinks it is just b/c I have had Influenza this past week and haven't been moving around much, so going to the grocery store made my muscles hurt. This wasn't muscle pain, though. It was my whole lower abdominal cavity, bending me over type of pain. I don't know what to think.

I don't know a lot about ectopics, but I would think that yes, you would get a + HPT is that was the cause of your pain. It could be a cyst...sometimes they can be very painful.

This same thing happened to my friend...she wound up in the ER, and was diagnosed with ovarian torsion...the ovary was actually twisting and causing pain. This can be caused by a cyst, or sometimes they aren't even sure why it happens. I'd make an appt. with your OB/GYN right away to see what is going on...in some cases you can lose your ovary or have other permanent damage done.

Hope I'm not scaring you...the symptoms you described sound just like what she told me happened to her. I hope they can find a cause so it doesn't happen again!
