Clitoral swelling for couple months

Hello, I’m in my early 20s and tried to stimulate myself (just fingers) but it only resulted in a couple seconds of sensation/pleasure. Perhaps the feeling is suppressed due to generalized anxiety.  I’ve had a weird dull ache on my right side that usually went away after I stopped but now it’s always present. One day I tried again and my clitoral area (round part and the hood) became swollen and didn’t go back down (erect state?) It’s been around 4 months and it’s still like that. Furthermore, it came with side effects. During the moment I tried to stimulate myself I felt a weird “whoosh” up to my stomach and haven’t felt full since. I do feel hunger but just never satiety. The next day I had terrible pain in my bladder area, like bad cramping. I did also have bladder sensitivity (didn’t feel the urge to go but was still able to on command) but that’s somewhat returned to normal. I got blood work and they said everything looks normal aside from some vitamin deficiencies. I’m worried that I may have injured a nerve related to my digestive system.  I don’t know if it’s all in my head but am curious if anyone else has a similar experience or advice. I have not yet seen a gynecologist or GI doc due to limited availability.

I'd keep pressing for an appointment. The only think similar to that that I have had myself is an appendix inflammation. It wasn't acute appendicitis, just a chronic inflammation. That isn't the only thing that can cause similar issues, though. Try to get in if your doctor has a cancellation list. Good luck!
