Patient: I’ve been feeling sick for a while. Today I had shooting pains through my abdomen and a deep ache in my pelvis. My stomach is slightly swollen and I have a headache and dizziness. Everyday I feel sick but neer actually through up and have trouble sleeping. I had my last period on the 18th and do not use birth control. What’s wrong?
