Three days ago my pelvic bones in my lower back started to ache. I thought I’d hurt my back, I have a bad back often but always higher. Then it spread and my pelvic floor feels like its been kicked by a horse. The pain radiates down my thighs. I can’t think, I can’t sleep, I can’t concentrate on the kids. I tried OTC pain killers to no avail. Took some codeine I was once prescribed but it’s not even helping.

Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

Could be anything. See a doctor.

Could be anything really. My first thought is kidney infection / kidney stone / urine infection (which may or may not cause discomfort when urinating). See a doctor: you may need some antibiotics.

THANks. No pain on urinating. It feels like muscle and nerve pain.

I will definitely try and see the GP tomorrow but I fear I won’t get an appointment for a few days.

It does sound like the kidneys, can feel like terrible back pain. And it may not affect urinating.

Thanks. Hopefully doctor will agree to see me tomorrow if it might be my kidneys.

Would I not feel feverish if I had a kidney infection? I don’t feel ill really, although I’ve lost my appetite. I just feel like a horse kicked me in the vag and then started sending electric pulses down my thighs.

Once UTI etxnhas been ruled out , then sounds like a “ hypertonic pelvic floor “ feeling like being kicked by a horse is a common symptom.

Look up PFD pelvic floor dysfunction, constant bad back can work it’s way to the pelvic floor , which can send it into spasm.

Need to relax the pelvic floor and not tighten .

Sounds like your pelvis is mis-aligned. Physio.

I've been having this a lot recently. Not a uti. Doctors have ordered bloods for kidney function and ovarian cancer as well as coeliac disease. They feel it could well be ibs though- how are your bowel habits

You can have a uti without fever or pain on urinating. Def rule out first.

My bowel habits are fine. I don’t think that’s the issue.

I have just been googling and now im worries that this could be related to Ann operation I had after childbirth to repair my pelvic floor. It was called TVT surgery and I thought it a great success but apparently some people have had awful pain appear years later. But why would it just start now?

It’s awful. I can’t even sit down this pm. I’m laid on the sofa trying to look after three kids and a puppy without moving. Even when laid still the pain is still about 5/10.

How are you feeling now? If the pain is still that bad it may be worth ringing 111 to ask for advice.
