Not sure whether I shoudl go to the doctors or not, I wanted everyones opinions to if i'm over reacting or not. I keep getting like, shooting pains in my abdomen, when i'm off my period. They go through my abdomen, my legs too. It's really painful and makes me feel sick.​

I always think if its enough to make you worried than its time to make a doctors appointment if only to put your mind at ease. xx

ok not going to expect you to answer publically but if you are on the oral contraceptive and having leg pains at all then go to your GP. It could be a sign of thrombosis which could be very VERY serious!

I agree with midge&panda though, if its enough to worry you its worth a trip to the docs

Absolutely agree with Midge and Panda, if it is worrying you...then you should really see your GP.

However, what may reassure you is that shooting pains in the abdomen are sometimes just trapped wind! I actually have a friend who gets this sort of pain really bad (they shoot down to her legs, too) when she hasn't eaten and her tummy is empty. It's a bit of an on-going joke, as she'll openly announce "Argghhh, I've gotta eat something! I'm getting those gas pains!" haha!

I suppose the consensus is the same advice we would give for poorly piggies... if you're concerned then see the expert :)

I just refuse to make them, I only made the one to do with my medication because it was getting rediculous. I genuinly HATE it xx
