Yes, I have had 2 trips to the ER for what they assume to be ruptured cycts. In both cases, I was monitored for appendicitis and kept a full day. I had a fever and puked and hurt like, well, a lot. The pain is sudden onset and increases for a few hours. By the time I can't stand and can't stop puking, I go to the ER. After a 3 hour wait (or more) it has subsided. I have had u/s and CT w/ contrast, neither showed a cyst.
My OBs have said a ruptured cyst should show fulid on the u/s, and not cause a fever, and that ER docs tend to use it as a scapegoat for when they know it isn't appendicitis. So, if it happens again, be sure to follow up with your ob/gyn.
