After I work or stay on my feet for long periods of time or walk too much I have a restless time falling asleep bcuz my left ovary more so then my right one continues to ache, sometimesright one does too but eventually they stop hurting or my left one continues to hurt... I'm now 51 years old and I feel I need to sleep with a pillow between my legs like I was pregnant or propped up on my husband...my period disappears for months but returns lasting for 3-4 days like a regular period use to do...how will I know if this is just menopause or cyst or cancerous or harmonies issues at this age. I haven't been to a doctor for 17 years since my last child and I never been sick but I am in pain and it's affecting how I sleep with my husband. Should I go to the doctor...I'm scared!!!
