I was put on birth control pills to prevent the cyst from growing larger.
For almost a year I have experienced very little pain.
I moved away to a new city, and I have a new doctor. I was off birth control for about 4 months, but this past december started again. Now, the next month when it came time for my period it was very very light. This was 11 days ago. About a 5-6 days ago I started experiencing bad sciatic pain on my left side, starting right around my lower back and the coxis (sp?). It then spreads to my left buttock muscle and thigh, and radiates to the back of my knee and down.
Also, after my period stopped, I started spotting, the color is sort of brownish-reddish and it has been going on for about a week...
Could this be a rupturing of the cyst and if so is this what's causing my sciatic pain?
I couldnt get in to se my doctor so anything would be helpful. I am in a lot of pain and sick of having to deal with this...Thanks in advance!
