I started having lower back pain and pelvic pain and thought maybe my spine was out of alignment. Pain started about 7 months ago. As time went on the pain in the pelvic area and lower back seem to be more prominent on the left side. I haven't had a period in a year so I assume I have went through menopause. I am 50. I can't stand for more than 5 to 10 minutes without it starting to feel like it straining or pulling my lower back and pelvis and when I sit down I feel the stretching and pull and its painful. When I massage the areas they are sore. Now for the last 2 weeks I started having lower abdominal pains around the belly button area and right below and sharp pains coming and going almost like gas pains but alot worse and sorta like spasms. My WBC is 20,000 so infection is sure. They did a CT scan and think its is diverticulitis. I have had IV antibiotics for a hour at hospital and 2 antibotic shots in the rear and now I am on 2 days of Cipro and Flagyl and although I don't have fever anymore and My eye is swollen. I still hurt in my pelvis when standing and sitting just like I was and the lower abdominal pain is alittle better but it still hurts to pee or poop. It doesn't sting just pressure. I was burping alot but that is seldom now but I would think it would be better by now. So confusing to me. I have had PID twice and 2 tubal pregnancies and It felt just like PID or Ectopic pregancy but the antibiotics I am taking should help with PID and I know I am not pregnant so I just don't understand. I was fearful of ovarian cancer because of my history but my doctor because of the WBC thinks it would be something else. So now I have a diagnosis of Diverticulitis . I have 5 days left of antibiotics. It just seems that I should feel less pain than what I do.
