Whats causing this pain?

I have had six weeks of doctor/hospital visits and am really fed up and disheartened as they can't find what's wrong with me. I'm a 30 year old female and have been suffering with really bad pelvic pain, symptoms have been a dull ache accompanied by sharp pains in pelvic area and lower back, pain whilst passing water and during intercourse. Intially I was diagnosed as having PID and treated but pain didn't disappear..various tests done which are all negative also seen a gyneacologist who ruled out there being a gynealogical reason for my pain. I'm finding it really hard to cope with the pain and just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and got to the route cause?

Could be pudendal neuralgia. by sharp do you mean burning? does your bladder hurt and burn? x


Hi - I have been back and forward to hospital for over a year and have tried private consultants to get an answer to my pain, with no joy.

They believe its damage to abdominal wall and/or nerves, but they are not sure. I live on pain medication and it does very little, but if I don"t take it things get worse very quickly.

Am waiting for new year to discuss med review as have four lots and can take upto 16 tablets a day on a bad one. Please don't get disheartened its not in your mind and push for answers.

Hello i was diagnosed with pid twice and then finally diagnosed with interstitial cystitis last year. It may be worth looking this up and seeing if it matches any symptoms you have.
