Pelvic And Stomach Cramping, Lower Back Ache and Leg Aches

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello Ladies,

I have been getting my periods every 17 days for the last 3 months. This last period after I stopped bleeding I have had pretty bad lower intestinal and pelvic cramps, lower back aches and very sore legs. I have had it for about a week now. Is this normal, do any of you other ladies suffer from this? My anxiety is getting worse because of my worry and I want to go to the ER because I'm scared. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Have had 2 pelvic ultrasounds and MRI done since January 1st of this year already. Nothing serious shows up but enlarged retroflexed uterus full of fibroids and a ovarian cyst on left ovary. I am just very scared right now 😢

    Hi Debbie your post has come just at the right time for me so hope we can help each other 😊you're in a better position than me tho as an Mri being done would give me tots reassurance,so please do not worry anymore. As for the pelvic pain and sore legs I'm right with you every single day I feel tender and left thigh feels like I've been kicked on inside of leg.i started spotting two weeks ago instead of getting a period some days lighter than others and no sign of letting up even tonight i had a gush of flooding with little clots !!! I feel all crampy as if my proper period will start now even tho it was supposed to come two weeks ago but surely I can't spot lightly for two weeks then have a period ?!?! Can you relate ? I have a enlarged anteverted uterus too mine is 10cm long.a small fibroid and 3 small complex cysts on right ovary.ive had two scans so far.i think as far as pelvic and leg pain yours maybe due to your fibroids how many do you have and are they large?it can put so much pressure on your lower back legs etc.hope I've helped😊message me anytime michelle xx

    ​Yes I just started that this year. I'm 53 and hoping it means I'm getting closer. I get where my lower back and insides ache. My legs will feel tired and achy. I have a pinched nerve in my back now too which happened in February so I have pain in my left leg every time I sit. I'm a mess lol.  Vitamin supplements have helped alot with other symptoms and I don't have the anxiety attacks anymore thank goodness but it's always something!

Go to your Dr or the e r asap . they can give you relief
