Just make sure it is not a UTI or Nephritis (not another one!) When I get Kidney Stones, I get pain from my shoulder blades to my knees! I'd rather have broken bones! That kind of pain, spasticity, urgency sounds like me with kidney stones.
Hi Rena... did you have your ovaries taken out when you had your hysterectomy? I had to have surgery on one of my ovaries that curls up in a ball and was hiding.. it took quite awhile for them to find out what the pain was.
I had a hysterectomy but the let the ovaries in .. now I only have one left but it''s not working anymore...hehehe
take care and hope they find out what it is...
hi rena i keep getting some cramping pain and i dont have it all of the time it is occasional i get it in the middle of the night feels a bit like menstruation cramps but i know it is not feels like a heavy pressure feeling through out pelvis and urethra area. i have to take a strong pain killer whenever i get this.
Limbolander - yes. Although it's looking like mine may be a systemic inflammation that's affecting the nervous system too. The other night it was so painful it woke me up from sleep. It felt like someone was squeezing my cervix with all their might and radiating into the left groin area. When it happens during the day while standing and walking, I have to sit down or lie down until it passes. The pull of gravity seems to make it more painful. I too, have had kidney stones, and now am showing WBCs and RBCs in the urine, along with urgency, frequency, and difficulty emptying at times.
Then there are other times it feels like I'm having constant uterine cramps. They sometimes are painful enough they radiate down to my knees.
Last year, I had a uterine and cervical biopsy done. They had to put me under for the biopsy because my cervix was clamped shut and he couldn't get the tube up inside without causing excruciating pain. They've done ultrasounds and CT scans and have never found a thing.
Next up is the urologist.
Hey all! Well I am still having difficulty with my bladder with pain and feeling of fullness. I had blood tests for my kidney's and they came back normal. I do have both ovaries but they were looked at with the ultrasound. I have no cervix so that would have nothing to do with the pain I am experiencing now.
I was at Walmart yesterday and when my hubby and I went our separate ways, within 5 minutes I knew it was a mistake. He had the cart and although I had my cane I found myself sweating profusely, legs incredibly weak and felt like if I didn't find hubby or a place to sit I was gonna sit on the floor. Well I ended up choosing the floor and an employee came along and said, "ma'am, you cannot sit on the floor, it is for people walking!". I had a good laugh at that one but still couldn't get up due to incredible weakness. Finally hubby came by and helped me off the floor and he got me in the truck and we headed home. I think I am gonna give up Walmart though...every time I have fallen over and hit the floor I was at Walmart and now I just have to choose to sit on the floor prior to falling down out of weakness! Must be the lighting or something...ya think? he he
I guess the next best thing for me to do is to call my Neurologist and see if he can get me in to a urologist sooner than my gp. He will know better what these symptome mean more than anyone I guess. i will let you know what he has to say!
Lots of Hugs,
