Hi, 3 months ago I went to bed one night and woke up with crushing lower back pain, ripping pain in my pelvis/lower abdomen and a constant urge to pee. I was treated with 4 sets of antibiotics but all cultures were clear as were routine blood tests. An ultrasound showed no problems with ovaries or kidneys but I wasn't voiding properly. I have excruciating, burning pain across my bikini line and bladder, constant urge to pee but a cramped feeling meaning I can't start then the stream just stops. The pain has been constant and I now seem to have bowel problems too yet no obvious symptoms related to bowel cancer. I just don't seem to give the urge to go. I had an internal exam from a continence physio. She said in 20 years of assessing pelvic floors she had never seen one as strong as mine and I wasn't just a 5 on the Oxford Scale I was off the chart. Looking back many of the symptoms that led to my hysterectomy 20 years ago were probably caused by this condition but my real question is. Could it be possible that my pelvic floor could suddenly go in to spasm and remain like it for 3 months causing this much pain. My doctor has recommended Gabapentin. I am truly desperate but also worried it must be something life threatening! I haven't slept for 3 months
