Patient :I was diagnosed with an ovarian cyst a few days ago. I am a student and cannot go about my day because I am in so much pain. I was prescribed with 800mg of ibuprofen but even if I take it periodically it does not help the pain. It comes in waves and it is awful, piercing pain when at its worst. I went to the gyno and they said they couldn't do anything but wait. Apart from heat is there anything I can do to relieve the pain?
