Avatar n tn It has gotten worse now both sides hurt and my knees give out on me. My doctor sent me to a pain specialist and they said it was nerve pain and wanted to inject me with steriods right where it hurt. I am terrified of needles and so of course this isn't an option for me. I was also told it may be fibromyalgia but after taking Lyrica I felt like I was losing my mind. I have tried to live with the pain and I haven't been able to work for two years.

1534024 tn?1294249675 So it would feel as if there was someone on one side pulling me from my head and one on another pulling me at my feet and stretching me out. The pain is annoying and bad enough that I have to try and focus on something else to ignore it or thinking about it makes me want to cry. I've had it before and the pain will last for a week or more and then go away.When this happens my nerves are really sensitive to cold or touch.
Avatar n tn Then my foot and head started tingling. Then the headaches and body aches began. Next came the pelvic pain, stiffness, and sore muscles. I have random tender spots from head to toe. The pain is sometimes achy, sometimes sharp, sometimes my body is tender to touch. Several months into all of this my bladder started working overtime. Now I even have trouble walking or getting up from sitting in the floor because I feel so stiff. When I wake up in the morning I feel absolutely horrible.

1047234 tn?1253547296 I cannot eat red meat because it takes forever to digest and it is miserable for me because I was left with a chronic pelvic pain from a hystectomy, and my colon is exceptionally long, and when things don't move correctly I am in a lot of pelvic pain, but I tend to get weak and anemic from time to time and I crave red meat, but I am sorry if I dare eat it. Pork is not too bad, and chicken is not as bad, but fish digest better than any, but get tired of it, and I do need some meat.

647175 tn?1250827626 My surgeon told me that endometriosis can cause pelvic pain and back pain and is hoping that some of my pain issues will decrease now that she has removed the source. You need to find out for sure if you have endometriosis, it could be causing a lot of your symptoms. Keep advocating for yourself with your gyn to get to the cause of your pain, you are too young to have to live like this. If your doctor won't help you, find a specialist who knows more about this disease and go for a consultation.
Avatar f tn Now I feel pain in the upper abdomen on the rib cage on both sides, also sometimes pain radiates to the back of both sides, pressure pain with cramps and major discomfort on the lower abdomen and pelvic area. Hosp emerg thought it might be appendix but CT scan showed all normal organs.

I also have cysts in my ovaries.

988168 tn?1297405046 Now I feel the jerking and pain in my butt and and back it's really concerning me. My new doctor a neuromuscular doc wants me to get another mri but of my spine next. She also did mention that many of her patients have these types of symptoms and it's all due to stress. I know stress can cause things to happen but not these weird symptoms?! She knows that I am under stress and I wonder if that is why she said it.
Avatar n tn About a month or two after I started experiencing severe pain in my hip and pelvic region. I had xray of my hip area and my neurosurgeon said that everything looked normal. He said he would send me to an orthopedic because he didn't know what was going on, even after he put me on the table and saw how much pain I was in. Mind you when the technician was taking the xrays i was bawling because the pain was so severe.
Avatar n tn I also feel as though my chest/ribcage area is burning/inflamed and everything seems to just ache all over, sting, or tingle, particulary at this point my back near the ribcage, legs, and feet. I've had a pelvic ultrasound, stomach x-ray, and stomach CT with contrast, as well as blood work, and all is normal. I'm very frustrated and honestly, scared. Can you help me?
Avatar n tn My cycle has been regular, and my last one was 12/5-12/9, so it's not been even two weeks since. I've had bloating and tingling or pain sensations in my pelvic region since 12/2. I also forgot to mention that when she did the pap smear, she had to use the pediatric-sized speculum because my vaginal canal was too sensitive. It was also "red and inflamed" (her words), and every once in a while it burns, but not when I urinate. I'm assuming these symptoms are the BV.
