The possibility of fibroids springs to mind, but TBH the best thing to do is to go and see your GP and have a proper examination. You just can't be too careful with unexplained symptoms.

I would have to say endometriosis cannot be ruled out here. Infact all the symptoms you describe are typical of this (endo put paid to my Maths o level as well). Pain mid cycle is also common as well with endo.

Any symptoms that are cyclical and that get worse during menstruation may be due to endo.

Your GP ought to refer you to a gynae for further evaluation; such problems are often outside a GPs remit of understanding.

Just to throw in an alternative, have you thought along lines of polysystic ovaries? I had this and had similar experience.

Also I experienced strange kind of thing when drinking Coke - would get stabbing pain and hot flush type thing in ovary area - just a thought incase the fibroids route comes out as not relevant

PCO does not normally cause pain.

Still think endometriosis cannot be ruled out. Its usually though only diagnosed through a laparoscopy operation (keyhole surgery).
