I am concerned that my neice mayhave munchausen syndrome. She has lied int the past about food allergies and asthma. She went through numerous tests and procedures. She did admit that it wasn't true. Er, clinics and ambulances for several years. This past year alone she has seen a surgeon for an injury to her hip and leg, now nutrionist for allergies, ovarian cysts and so on and so forth. She has been in an ER at least 6 times since May and had an ovarian cyst removed in May as well. She is always sick around some event in the family that draws attention towards her. She has also compulsively lied about events in her life that simply did not happen. She now, since her Mom is going to London, has been in the ER and is now saying she has a 4 inch cyst on the other ovary. I just find this all coincidental. Noone seems to have seen any medical documents. Can someone induce ovarian cysts and how? Is there anything that we should look for to validate this cause? Please help
