Hi! I do have a tilted uterus, but it was never mentioned by my doctors as causing my back pain. The only way I know I have a tilted uterus is because my obstetrician mentioned it when I gave birth. (I have bad arthritis in my lower back, sacroiliac joints and bulging disc). Who knows though, it could contribute to back pain. Take care, Kera4

Hi, I haven't been told that I have a tilted uterus, but I have a thickening of the uterine wall (not quite a fibroid) that causes increased pressure on the nerves in my back when it swells monthly and thus causes bad back pain - different from menstrual cramps completely. I can get electric shocks in my back, increased pain into my hip and legs and numbness at that time of the month. It is very frustrating because people always assume its just menstrual pain and its not - I can get that too; this is the nerve being pressed by the swelling uterus and it hurts A LOT. In fact I just posted a question about PMS because I sometimes get extra periods due to my teenage daughter's cycles and then I get that swing in my back pain along with it - sometimes 2 to 3 times a month. I have suffered from chronic back pain for over a decade so I know back pain when I get it.
A titled uterus can have a variety of symptoms including pain during intercourse, pain during periods, low back pain, UTI's, and infertility. However, there are some gynecological problems that can also manifest in back pain (i.e. endometriosis, pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, etc) and well as non gynecological problems such as kidney disease or kidney infections which some people interpret as a back problem before figuring out it's kidney related. You can consult with your gynecologist first to rule out any gynecological conditions that could cause pain.
However you also need to see your primary care physician and discuss your pain. He/she may recommend x-rays and if needed a referral to an orthopedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon if you need further evaluation.
