Pain after cup overflowed??

I've had my cup for about a year now, and i love it. I've never had problems with it, until yesterday that is.

We were on the road all day and i didn't get the opportunity to empty as often as I'd like (which is abt every 3 hours on my heavy days- which was yesterday and today). Well, i started getting a horrible sharp pain in what felt like my ovary area and a heaviness that was painful in my pelvis. It got real bad real quick, felt like i couldn't breathe.
Anyway, sure enough it was way over filled and i don't know how long it was like that. I emptied it and sat upright for awhile to let things flow down.
Today, im still in a lot of pain. The pain and heaviness in my pelvis is still going on. Even just riding in the car brings on pain!

Do any of you lovely ladies have insight into this issue and some advice? I am 30 and have had 3 kids. My lady garden is on the short side and during my periods my cervix can be so low i can feel it dangerously close to my opening! My flow is heavy for a day or two and i also have the paraguard iud.

I'm getting to the point of buying pads and i reeeeeeeeally don't want to.
