strange feeling in stomach


i know this will probably sound crazy and feel really embarrassed and grossed out asking this but i just need to know if anyone else feels the same way. my husband and i have been trying to conceive (we started this last month) and this past week my stomach (my top half of my stomach above my bellybutton and around my ribs and lungs and everything) and also down where my ovaries are, on the right side, have been hurting so much that i am about to go nuts. it's not a normal pain...it's like a fuzzy, crawly sort of pain. i've been getting pains under my right side of my chest as well and it's making my breasts hurt. my ovary almost felt like it popped or something and it was awful and i almost considered going to the hospital it hurt so much. it's almost like my stomach is having spasms as well. and no, btw, i don't think i have anything "inside" of me or whatever, i just don't know how much more of this i can take. is this supposed to be an early pregnancy sign or is something wrong with me?? i'm really scared and i don't really want to go to the doctor because i'm on holiday and it's really expensive to go to the hospital while travelling. my husband keeps telling me to calm down, and normally i would listen to him, but it's been nearly a week now that this has been happening and i'm not getting any better and i just need to know if anyone else has been through this.

also...my doctor did give me antibiotics before i left for my holiday because he thinks i have an infection or something but this doesn't feel like infection pains. it's not they're excruciatingly painful , but they're making me feel really sick i just can't take much more...it's preventing me from sleeping or enjoying doing anything and i'm having a really tough time.

if anyone has any answers or feels more comfortable private messaging me, please don't hesitate to send me a message.

thanks to anyone that can help.

no one on this site can give you the right advice you need, I would consider going to see a doctor as soon as possible, it might be nothing but it could also be something that if left untreated could become worse and/or affect ttc, hopefully its something minor like pulling a muscle or something in that area. I understand that doctors can be expensive while travelling however your health should come first especially if you are not going to be able to see your own doctor for another week or so, meanwhile I would recommend you take aloe Vera in drink form if possible as its pretty good for helping with pain around the stomach area, Vitamin B3 is also good for helping with cramping. I hope you feel better soon

thanks vanilla...i actually did go and i'm really, really, reallyyyy beyond embarrassed and feel like a proper idiot for even posting what i did last night...i think i was just scared because it was something i hadn't felt before and it wasn't going away. the doctor here in iceland told me it was extremely severe constipation thanks to the antiobiotics i was taking and pregnacare, which was also making me feel really sick and he told me that i should take a pregnancy test at the end of the week, if the feeling didn't go away, to make sure it wasn't that i wasn't pregnant. thank you for your response though, i really did appreciate it.

also...it wasn't really that expensive....i went to a doctors office, not the hospital, next to a pharmacy, and the visit cost me 26 pound, the blood test was 28, and the medicines (plus a couple of other things i needed) that he recommended to help my um, problem, was 26 pound. i thought it was going to be hundreds and hundreds of pounds to go but i feel much better that i went...still embarrassed and feeling like an absolutely nutcase for freaking out though

er, well...unfortunately...it did turn out to be something. i went to my doctor back here in england as soon as i got back and i have to take ovex and i've bought some colon cleansing stuff because i managed to get pinworms somehow. how embarassing the pain and tingling in my chest was me freaking out, he said, because something was wrong and naturally it was stressing me out because it was different and wasn't going away. it makes me feel dirty and gross but the doctor assured me that it doesn't matter who you are or how clean you are, that it can happen to anyone and that i shouldn't be embarrassed in the least. i've never had them before, or really any other health problems for that matter, so i freaked out a little bit and cried a little bit in the doctors office because i was scared and because i knew that whatever was happening to me wasn't going away and i didn't know what to do. i'm a bit of a hypochondiac anyway so that wasn't helping matters either ( i always think things will be worse than they are...). anyway, i don't know how i got them but he assured me i wasn't going to die or anything so i think i'll be alright. awesome, huh? i guess i won't be getting a bfp this month....you're not supposed to take the medicine if you think you're pregnant or might be pregnant. i just don't understand why this had to happen my first month of trying to have a baby. maybe the universe is telling me it just isn't my time yet or something who knows...maybe there's a reason for everything or whatever but having this happen? not cool.

i give up!! i was told today, since the medicine they gave me wasn't working, that i don't ACTUALLY have pinworms, or anything else, which was making me feel disgusting, that taking the medicine was just a precautionary thing, and that it's most likely just ibs or gall stones or something. what on earth??? from here on out, anything that happens in my stomach is a symptom of pregnancy.
