Pelvic Pain Q & A

What causes pelvic pain?

Between all the vertebrae along your spine and connected nerves, muscles, tendons, and ligaments — plus all of your internal organs — pelvic pain can stem from a number of different sources. You can have pelvic pain because of:

  • Pinched nerves
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Crohn's disease
  • Endometriosis
  • Strains, sprains, or pulls
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Chronic pancreatitis
  • Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Sometimes, abdominal pain is idiopathic, meaning it doesn’t have a specific cause, or the source is unknown. But this doesn’t mean you have to live with it. You can still get treatment for pelvic pain at Metro Pain and Vein Centers.

When should I see a doctor for pelvic pain?

Abdominal pain can develop anywhere in your pelvic region, flanks, or belly. Your pain can be dull or sharp, come on suddenly or gradually, leave quickly or possibly linger for an extended period of time. In any case, it’s important to see the pain specialists at Metro Pain and Vein Centers if you experience:

  • Worsening pain
  • Bloating or painful bowel movements
  • Discomfort during or after intercourse
  • Pain that keeps you from your daily activities
  • Pain that radiates to your lower back or legs

Your dedicated pain specialist may order digital X-ray imaging, ultrasounds, or lab work to help get to the root of what’s causing your pelvic or abdominal pain. Once they pinpoint the source, they’ll design a treatment plan that’s tailored to you.  

How is pelvic pain treated?

Your dedicated pain specialist will work with you to find effective solutions based on your specific condition and lifestyle. In many cases, you may need a combination of therapies to find lasting pain relief.
