I just read something about Pelvic Congestion Syndrome and was wondering if anyone here knew anything about it. It's supposedly caused by dilation or abnormality of the ovarian veins, allowing blood to flow backward and pool in the abdomen. Symptoms can include burning and throbbing pain in the abdomen or lower back, menstrual abnormalities, chronic fatigue, urinary frequency and irritable bowel syndrome. I found a brief explanation at http://www.wfla.com/health/100.htm
Since I have all these symptoms, I'd like to find out more before running to my dr. with yet another theory that will make her sigh and roll her eyes.
