Hi All:

I am recently diagnosed with VF according to the cocci test. Within the last 2 weeks I have been experiencing a sensation on my left side in the pelvic area I guess near my ovarie. It is an achy feeling and sometimes my back hurts. It does not happen everyday. When I feel it with my hand I feel something there compared to feeling nothing on my right side. Can this VF appear in my lower pelvic area? I already have some lesions on my lungs.

I am just so tired of dealing with all these health problems. It is amazing to me how this VF can hijack your body and just take over.

Thanks for all your help.

Heidi

Hello Heidi,

There have been previous reports of ovarian lesions and other parts of the genitourinary tract from Valley Fever. Keep track of exactly where the pain is, the exact circumstances of the pain you feel (what you were doing at the time), any medication you are taking and even possibly the foods you have eaten. Write these notes down to keep them handy and so you can answer medical questions comprehensively.

Then call your doctor's office and describe the discomfort very specifically first, and ask if you should provide more information or if they feel a visit is warranted. They will want to investigate whether something else may have caused this sensation, since cocci is so often overlooked, but be sure to make the office aware that you already have lung lesions and that you are concerned that the VF may have spread. You may be called in for an appointment, sent to another specialist, or told specifically how to watch and wait.

You have every right to feel tired of problems from VF. Unfortunately, even if you take a break from thinking about it, VF and other health issues can still keep going. It always helps to be proactive for your health.

All my best,
