What is this annoying pain?

Ive had a very annoying stabbing pain in my left hip (right on the tip of the sticky out bone bit)Occassionaly radiating around the area, it comes and goes very quickly, painful but not very, more annoying than anything.

It doesnt seem to be connected to movement, it just happens. Ive just finished my period, so maybe its connected to my cycle?! I also had the same sort of pain in my lower back the other day (during period). Thought it might be a UTI, but dont have any pain when weeing or any other UTI symptoms.

Anyone have this or have any ideas? Suppose it it continues i need to see the GP.

It does sound as if it could be a UTI, wxcept the pain isn't constant. I had a UTI with no other symptoms, but the pain was constant.

a UTI isnt going to go away on its own either is it?!

antibiotics should soon sort you out if that's what it is. smile

what does a trapped nerve feel like?

a trapped enrve is a very sharp shooting pain.

UTI is a dull ache.

well the pain is not dull, its sharp, but not very painful sharp, more painful-ish, annoying sharp!

If its still there in the morning, i'll make an appointmet.
