Sharp intrauterine pains which made me black out

This morning out of the blue I had very sharp intrauterine pains which made me feel so faint and clammy with the pain that I flopped on a chair in the kitchen.

DD was concerned and called for her dad who was in his study, by the time he came in I was 'out' and apparently my eyes were rolling in my head. I came to a few seconds later to dh shouting "breathe deeply!".

It's not entirely unknown for me to black out when in severe pain - it has happened a couple of times previously in my life....

The pains abated a few minutes later but then I felt thoroughly drained and after dropping the children at school, I returned home and went to bed for a couple of hours.

I've felt okay since then (a bit 'spacey'), no more pains etc. Have had no other symptoms (no bleeding / vaginal discharge).

Anyone had anything similar - I guess I am asking, what non-sinister condition might it be? Will try and get to the doctors open surgery tomorrow but kids are on inset day and also we go on holiday tomorrow night! - so timing is not great

whereabouts was the pain? overy area?

it could be a cyst, if it was really bad it could be the cyst twisting.

i get this pain too, mainly around ovulation and my period, feels like im being stabbed with a screw driver.

Any pain on urinating?

No pain on urination....

It's hard to pin point the was kind of a shooting pain(-ish). The closest I can compare it to was contractions during labour, but that wasn't quite it either.

It could have been around the ovary.

Yes it did have 'stabbing' like qualities bamboo

I suppose I am about mid cycle - but never had anything quite like this before

have you had a CS at all? i found my pains got worse after my CS so it could also be adhesions.

most likely to be a cyst or endometriosis.

having investigoogled my stabbing pains the only serious thing i found was cysts.
