Question: Pain in abdomen

 nikyjoe - Fri Feb 27, 2004 7:49 pm

A few years ago I had an ovarian cyst. Lately I thought it came back because of the dull aching pain on the side of my abdomen. I went to my OB/GYN and she said everything is fine and the pain might be GI or anxiety. Should I have an ultrasound or go to a GI doctor? What could this pain be, it's not constant but comes and goes daily and I sometimes have irregular periods. I'm confused...
