    It's like burning/aching pain in my groin and pelvis. It feels like it's swollen, but does not look like it. I don't know if this is TMS or not. I've been having different pains ever since 2 years ago when a very stressful event occurred. This time, the pain is in my left pelvis and it feels like ovarian pain. My thoughts automatically goes to ovarian cancer. I had a left hip MRI in December because I had hip pain back then, and it states that there is no mass, lymphadenopathy or free fluid in the pelvis. and everything regarding my uterus is normal on the left side. My mind is telling me that what if something change from then to now. I don't know what to think...I need some reassurance. Please help.

    About 10 years ago I had very similar types of pain in this area. Like you, I was convinced that I had ovarian cancer. The fear kicked in, and in all I suffered for a year. After many, many tests and finally being reassured that I was healthy, the pain just went. I now have back pain, but am now certain that this, plus my previous pain was in fact, TMS. Knowing that I was able to recover before, gives me the belief that it will happen again. It is the fear that is the hardest thing to cope with, but I hope this helps you.

    nguyeq12 - Have you seen a Gyn doctor? and had a complete pelvic ultrasound? If you haven't, I would get this done to rule out serious problems.

    Hi nguyeq12 ..... I thought I would chime in as I have had a somewhat unique experience with this. I had the burning/aching pains in my groin and pelvis ..... also a "cramping" feeling. There was also a "bloated" feeling on occasion. If I drank a carbonated beverage - watch out! I felt like I was going to explode. Went to my GP and she did a cursory exam and prescribed something for a yeast infection. Well, when I applied it, it stung horribly! So, she gave me a prescription for something else. Same thing - it hurt and I couldn't use it. Well, this was going on for a few weeks and I was getting pretty frustrated, so I decided to see my ob/gyn. I figured he was the specialist and would get to the bottom of this. Well, I went in and told him my symptoms and he got out the "big light" ..... checked me out and noted that I had large white vaginal lesions. Apparently, it was pretty bad. He then dismissed me to the waiting room. Shortly thereafter, he came out and handed me a pamphlet for HPV. I'm like WHAT? I've been married for 30 years and have always been faithful - what is this, I asked him. Then he looks at me with his sad face and I got it. He was basically saying that my husband hasn't been faithful and now this is what I get from that! He scheduled me for a vaginal biopsy, as this was the only test that would prove 100% whether I had HPV or not. So, needless to say, I went home armed with this information and during the 4 weeks between that appointment and the vaginal biopsy test results our house was pretty stressful. Long story short - tests came back - no HPV. My husband has always been faithful and those vaginal lesions and the pain that accompanied them? They went away and after seeing an additional physician - it was concluded that they were STRESS INDUCED. At that point, it really hit home with me what stress can do to our bodies. Personally, because of the nature of your pain, I would at least see a doc for a cursory exam or testing.

    About 15 years ago in my mid 20's I developed terrible pain in my lower abdomen. I was so frightened and it just got worse and worse as the night went on, but I was also freaking out and adding loads of fear. I went to the ER, they found nothing, was sent for CT scan the next day, nothing, except some scar tissue on the ovary, which made the doctor suspect it was a ruptured ovarian cyst. Apparently they can be really painful. But later on down the road of life, I had other doctors tell me that was not a likely culprit. One doc told me it was probably just bad cramps, I wanted to punch him. :) But to help you feel better, the pain did go away in a few days and I never had that same experience again. I would get checked by your doctor if it persists or worsens. Healing thoughts to you!
