I have been having lower back pain since Wednesday, just that mild warm PMS pain so I contacted my doctor Friday and a nurse followed up with me taking my symptoms down. No call back so I assumed they didn't recommend more testing. (I had an odd period - early, watery, pink, few clots and thought ***low estrogen***)
Yesterday, I slept 11 hours and woke up feeling good (atypical for me) and discovered I had vaginal discharge (milky, white, but not something I have ever had). No pain, itching or yeasty weirdness. Back pain + discharge, I immediately feared infection. The advice nurse wanted me to get checked within 3 days; I didn't want to think about it all weekend until I got in at my doctor's office.
We were at Urgent Care for 3 hours - U/A clean, pregnancy test was negative, pelvic exam good and swab was negative for infection. But yet, still the lower back pain. It's mild and I have definitely lost some of the symptoms last week. I took another pregnancy test this morning, negative. Just waiting until my primary care doctor gets back to me Monday. Anyone else had this issue?
Worst part: I got pitied and fat shamed with an unsolicited "infertility consult" where the urgent care doctor clearly thought I was desperately hoping I was pregnant but not accepting it (I was but WTH is going on with me?) and told me my blood pressure was high (damn right, a potential pregnancy after 2.5 years of trying or an infection!?) and that she was glad I am treating my nonexistent prediabetes (I am on it for possible PCOS, difficulty losing weight) and that I needed to go on a mostly plant based diet. She's a vegan herself.... I asked what I would do to stop the sugar crash of just eating fruit, her answer "just give it 4 weeks and it'll be better. Just drink lots of water!".
She typed me as obese (which is true, I am fat) but desperate for a child so I got her pity and advice to "not give up" but to do these simple steps of being less fat and not eating like garbage. I broke down into a terrible, ugly cry in the lobby (we were the last people there), and continued in the car. Almost lost it again in Target where I got chocolate and beer. I went home and ate the entire bar, had my girly beer and was lazy with my husband.
Better today but still low back pain and felt pinching on what I think is my right ovary. Cyst? Ugh...
