was daignosed with PCOS about 4 years ago and i never had a huge problem other that missing a couple periods. but now its been almost 5 months without a period and frequently i get sharp pains on my left side where my ovary is. i have not had health insurance for some time nkw so i have not been to a doctor recently. the pain starts out like someone is stabbing me the just a dull achey pain this alternates for several hours. it seems to be happening more often i hvve a history of neurological migraines as well and i seem to be getting those more frequent as well. has anybody else expierenced this? any tips on how to soothe the pain?

I was recently diagnosed with PCOS despite showing symptoms since age 10. Within the last 1 and a half I started feeling pain on my left side. I can't really determine where exactly the pain is coming from I just know it's somewhere below the rib to my hip bone. My first instinct was to go the Gyno and she saw nothing on the ultrasound. So I went to the Gastro and MRIs and an abdomen ultrasound showed nothing. The pain isn't always there it comes and goes. And I have noticed while I feel it, I lose sooooo much hair! And just like you I have migraines more often when I have this pain. So far I've had no real diagnosis to what is causing this. I really think it has to be a cyst. If anyone has felt this and has any idea what it can be please give me more info. Thanks!
