Shocking pelvic pain

Any knowledgable ladies care to advise until I can get a docs appointment on Mon? It has been a persistent ache for the last 6 weeks and I feel restricted in my movements similar to pelvic girdle pain which I had when pregnant (I'm definitely not pregnant this time). I thought at first it was a UTI and was prescribed antibiotics a month ago which had no affect and lab results subsequently ruled out infection. Doctor also did a quick check and didn't think there was a prolapse.
Today I have gone for a run (stupid, I know) and did some gardening and now want to curl up and die from the pain. I literally can not bend down to pick something up from the floor. Any ideas? Could fibroids cause this kind of pain? PID? Prolapse? Or pelvic girdle pain again without the accompanying pregnancy? Any ideas would be most welcome. Also if I ask for a scan when I finally get to the docs would this show up any problems?
TIA

hey, are you taking ibuprofen-anti-inflammatory might help, can take paracetamol same time if needed (and codeine too if tht doesnt do it).
Hotwater bottle or wheatbags/ hot baths are also a godsend to make it feel better. Pelvic Partnership arevery informative to read about this and give support. Could be so many things-need to see doctor and get referred to people in a more specialised dept to help find out the why and how
good luck
there is a back pain thread but sure they wouldnt mind an adaptation

Thank you Maizie. I'm following your advice and sitting on a hot water bottle as I type! smile Doctor thinks it could be a Bartholins Cyst although she's not sure confused. Advised hot sitz baths and referring for a scan. Would a Bartholins Cyst cause pain in the entire pelvic region and make it difficult to climb stairs? Thanks again for your advice. Ibuprofen might help me sleep better tonight.
