Pelvis Pain

Postby Billie » Sat Feb 20, 2016 12:33 pm

Hello all
Just wondering if anyone has Pelvic pain with FM? I've never had this pain before, thought it was my hip at first, but now seems to be in my Pelvic area.
Thanks

Hi, I have pelvic pain. However, I did have Symphysis Pubis Disorder when I was pregnant and it never went away so maybe that but I do suffer in this area the most. My hip has also been playing up more recently too. Again, not sure if SPD or Fibro or new hip required! Happy days eh? Hope you get to the bottom of it soon xx

Hi, pelvic pain isn't a common symptom of fibro, please get it checked out wth your doctor to make sure it isn't anything else.

Hi
I too suffer with pelvic pain, horrendous on flare ups and before menstrual cycle.

Currently have steroid injections in the SI joints to help relieve symptoms. They work for around 2-3 weeks and ease the pain but don't completely free me from it.

Hi I have chronic sacrolliac joint pain and chronic pelvic pain along with hip pain and sciatica. It is rather unpleasant. I had both for years prior to fibro diagnosis

Hi,

Most referrals are nearly always dealt with through your GP. However,if you are seeing your Rheumy then you can also ask him/her to refer you to the Pain Management Clinic at your chosen hospital.

After examination they will book an appointment for you to be referred to Radiology/Ultrasound where you will be seen by a Sonographer(or Ultrasound Technician) who will administer the injection whilst undertaking the scan as he/she will target the injection in the area of where the pain is...

...my husband has just had this same procedure undertaken for groin pain. He has a suspected torn ligament which was originally thought to be a hernia. A torn ligament is very painful. Hence why he had to have the trigger point injection. As normal pain killers weren't even killing the pain.

Hope this helps..

Hiya

Just jumping in, I had pelvic pain long before all of the other symptoms of fibro. I will say that after five years of pushing various docs, I went to a new GP at uni and he took one look and yelled endometriosis! For me that was it- three surgeries and more meds I've got it under control.

Saying that- ask your GP- I've worked in gynaecology and I would say don't just assume it's fibro. It could be linked to a cyst, endo, painful periods or pcos. Any number of things. They will be able to look objectively at it :)

Now I'm wishing getting a rheumatology referral was as easy as getting a gynae appointment.

Good luck
Clare
