I get pains in my abdomen a lot. It's been going on for a long time, and it seems to have absolutely no pattern as to what causes the pain. It's a constant pain. It ranges from dull throbbing pain that I can ignore, to really sharp intense pain that makes it hard to even breathe. It varies in placement as well. It can go from my entire abdomen to just one of my sides, or just the middle, or both of my sides and not the middle, etc. It's physically exhausting and often times after a sharp spike of pain fades (they normally last about an hour) I feel nauseous. What could be causing this? And how can I make the pain stop??
if you have single cysts in addition to a cluster of cysts in your breast that continue to multiply and also increase in size, is it ok to just watch them or should a biopsy be done to make sure they are just a simple cysts?

I've been having high blood pressure issues and it appears no medication is working that my family doctor has me on. I'm beginning to have frequest headaches and would like to know if I should consider seeing an internist or is this an issue out of their practice area?

I am 49 years old and have been dealing with some anxiety, panic episodes, depressed appetite and racing thoughts and sleepless nights. This has been going on for a few months. I have seen my Dr. who just wants to put me on antidepressants. At my annual female exam my OB tested my FSH and it was high enough she feels I am premenopause. I would like more in depth testing to know what is going on with my hormones before I just start some meds. But I do not know where to go. Do I see my OB doc, or find an Endocrinologists. Is Mercy's Women's center a good place for me to start?
