I have pressure on the left side of my vagina. It gets worse lying in bed at night. some nights its so annoying I can't sleep at all. It does bother me during the day also, but at night it's worse. I have had ct scans, external and internal ultrasounds, x rays and pap tests. My doctors are stumped. I really need answers. This issue is taking over my life. I have no pain, though I feel a heaviness in my lower belly, along with the pressure in my vagina. I do not know if these symptoms would also effect my issue but I also experience lower back pain on the right side, and my thighs get tingly and achy when I go up stairs.....Please help!!

Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is difficult to comment on the exact cause for the pelvic pressure and the symptoms that you describe without examining you and going ahead with further evaluation. If endometriosis or adenomyosis is suspected, laparoscopic evaluation should be considered (as conventional imaging techniques can fail to detect these). Consider discussing about this option with your treating doctor/gynecologist, or take second opinion from another gynecologist. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately. Take adequate rest. Drink plenty of water. Maintain healthy diet.
Take care.
