I started feeling very full in my abdomen about a week ago.

Customer Question

I started feeling very full in my abdomen about a week ago. I also felt pain in my back when I bent forward or laid down. Last night I started to feel an awkward uncomfortable feeling in my pelvis on the left side. I got very light headed and started breathing rapidly. It felt almost like I was having painless contractions. If I curled up the feeling got better. I have had a large ovarian cyst in the past and my first instinct was that maybe a large cyst had ruptured. Right now the fullness seems to be going away. Do I need to seek immediate medical attention or can this wait for a Drs appointment?

If I'm feeling better do you still think I need to go immediately?

Can't say without examining you....what if it recurs...lets say it is diverticulosis..and then it gets worse.....
We do not diagnose on the site.
