I am hoping someone out there might know what is wrong with me. (warning~ tmi, I'm sorry but I want to describe what this pain is.) I get these pains out of nowhere~ it is not consistent and I have no idea what brings it on. It used to be once or twice a month and then after I got pregnant it ceased altogether. I had my dd 9 months ago and up until now I thought whatever it was I was "cured". But then this morning at 4am I was woken by this awful pain again!
The pain I get is in two different places. I get this deep ache on my left side of my abdomen (next to my hip bone) and the severe pain is in a different place, inside my vagina. It is like a throbbing, aching, sharp stabbing pain inside that penetrates to my entire vaginal/rectal region. I can actually feel my tissues throbbing inside!
I've taken Motrin and will just keep popping the pills but when this happens nothing I do makes it stop~ I just have to wait it out. The pain is severe and in the past I've gone to Urgent Care for it and they can't do anything. I've had exams done (both at U. Care and from gynecologists) and they can't find out what is wrong. Everything looks ok, no urinary infection, no std, nothing to indicate what is wrong! It is not during my menstrual cycle or ovulation time, either.
At one point I thought I had interstitial cystitis (I searched on the web looking for anything that might sound like what this is) but this doesn't seem to be affected by what I eat or drink, is not at any particular time in my cycle, and seems to have no 'triggers'.
Does anyone have any idea what is causing this? Have you ever heard anything like this? I am so depressed because I thought this was gone and now the pain is back and I have a baby to take care of~ I can't be slowed down by this pain! Please help if you have any advice~ I would really appreciate it!!
