Symptoms of Pelvic Pain?

Pelvic pain can have different causes and can be felt in different areas, but generally, it is felt in the lower abdomen or pelvis, below the belly button and between the hips. The feeling of pelvic pain can also vary depending on its cause, but it can be described as a dull ache, cramping, pressure, or sharp pain. Some people may experience constant pain, while others may feel pain that comes and goes.

Pelvic pain can worsen while eating or during sexual activity.

Some of the other symptoms include:

  • Fever
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Pain with urinating
  • Nausea
  • Breakthrough bleeding

If you have pelvic pain that lasts longer than a few days to 6 months or more, contact a medical practitioner. Severe pelvic pain that interferes with daily activities including sleeping, exercising or sexual activity should be reported without delay. Get in touch with Dr. McBride for getting an examination. This may a chronic condition or infection and should be evaluated by an experienced doctor.

What causes pelvic pain?

Pelvic pain can have various causes, which can be attributed to different parts and organs of the body located in the pelvic area. The condition may also stem from issues in the urinary, reproductive, or digestive system, or from a pulled or strained muscle. Some common causes of pelvic pain include:

  • Menstrual cramps
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)
  • Constipation
  • Muscle
  • Nerve-related conditions
  • Certain cancers (mainly uterus and ovaries may also cause pelvic pain)

Proper Diagnosis Provides a Treatment Direction

Discovering the root cause of pelvic pain can be a complex process. However, a visit to the Neuro Spine & Pain Center can provide the answers you need. Our skilled doctors have access to cutting-edge diagnostic equipment and efficient lab testing to help pinpoint the problem quickly and accurately. By sharing a detailed history of your pain, including when it began and what exacerbates it, you can provide valuable clues to your doctor and expedite the diagnosis.

Once a comprehensive physical examination and medical history review are complete, imaging tests, such as pelvic ultrasound or MRI, may be necessary. Lab tests can identify the presence of infections. In certain cases, a pelvic laparoscopy may be required to provide a visual of the affected area. Additionally, a cystoscopy can provide a view of your abdominal region, while a colonoscopy may be necessary to examine your colon.

If pelvic pain strikes suddenly and is severe, seek medical attention immediately. Emergency appointments are available in Key West at Neuro Spine & Pain Center when you need them.
