Re: Dull pain in left side of pelvic region
Hi, my suggestion and I'm sure you'll have a few would be to check out Pudendal Neuralgia. I had it for years, because it's rare and most doctors don't know what it is, but recently I had surgery for it and it's fixed. Mine had gone on for so long that surgery may not be what you'd need if it's what you have. And it's not my intention to scare you or send you on a crazy hunt looking for something rare. It's just good to be aware of a variety of things early, in case all your tests come up showing nothing and your doctors are stumped.
Here is a list of my symptoms when it started:
-dull pain in what felt like the very center of the left side of my pelvis (it can be either side)
-no pain when urinating, but constipation added pain
-when I had my period, especially if it was heavy, more pain
-most people feel more pain when sitting, I felt more pain when standing in the same place and eventually with walking too
That's how it started for me and it did get gradually worse over time. This is a rare condition and only a handful of doctors know about it. Again, just giving you the option to be aware. Mine was caught 4 years later and I wouldn't wish that on anyone.
Other things to look into are Pelvic Congestion Syndrome, Piriformis Syndrome, Endometriosis, and things others mention to you as well. These were three things they suspected for me, but that I didn't have.
I hope you find the source of your pain and if you find yourself with more questions, please don't hesitate. Researching for yourself is as helpful as doctors are, I've learned.
