Been having pubic bone pain...

It's kind of embarassing, but I want to ask if anyone else has experienced this?

I was reading through some 2008 Spine-health members postings that mention this, but they are now named as "anonymous". One person had taken a hard fall, some had SI Joint problems like I do, one had hip bursitis like me, etc. There was never any diagnoses made with these members... so I thought I would just toss this subject out to you guys.

What I feel during an episode is stabbing pain on the entire right side of my pubic bone. It's the "double you over" kind of pain. I just took a Neurontin and a Percocet to see if that will help ease the pain.

I have had these episodes every now and then, but today it is lasting longer than usual. For the ladies... if you have ever had any painful ovarian cysts, that's what this feels like... in my right side of my pubic bone. (As a side note, I had a hysterectomy about 8 years ago and they kept my right ovary).

Would appreciate any input.

I am taking it easy, getting ready to take another round of meds and will probably take a nap.

Wishing everyone less pain and thank you, in advance, for any input.



  • Hi Tammy! Sorry to hear you're experiencing more pain, ugh!! I have si joint problems, too, I don't experience pain really, but I do get a buzzing sensation right at the front bottom of the pubic bone, like something is vibrating inside my body (but not THAT kind lol). Weird, eh? I do get a sharp stabbing pain in my lower right abdomen area, but never associated it with anything related to this kind of pain, but now I'm going to ask about it. Thanks for bringing up the subject! Hope you feel better and this subsides quickly for you!

  • I have had that pain and found nothing to help it but time. I tend to get pain around my pubic bone and lower abdomen when I have a uti. Just a thought but that is the only thing I've ever been able to contribute it to. Though my pubic bone and hip bones are very tender because of back problems. I would do the normal heat or ice to see if that eases it any but other than that I don't have much advice. I hope it starts feeling better soon

  • Sorry to hear you're having that pain. I've had stabbing pains on my left pelvic bone where my left leg is affected but it usually doesn't last long and comes and goes and have only experienced it a few times. I hope it eases up for you. Charry

  • Although I don't want you to experience this pain, your input has helped.

    I am using my infrared heating pad on my lower abdominal area right now and it is helping. I also took my regularly scheduled dose of pain meds, nerve med, arthritis med and muscle relaxers. I think it will feel better after my nap.

    I will watch for any UTI symptoms Ezra. You never know with those and I do have a history with UTI's, bladder infections and kidney stones.

    Thank you again... Kelly >:D< , Ezra >:D< and Charry >:D< .

    Will keep you posted and let me know what your doc says Kelly, when you inquire. I will do the same when I see mine on Nov 9th.

  • We called my PM doctor to give her a "heads up" on what I am feeling, as now my incision scar from my hysterectomy is hurting and my SI joint areas are also in pain.

    She wants me to see my PCP tomorrow for a urinalysis and possibly an ultra sound to check for adhesions on that scar?

    I see him tomorrow at 10:00am.

    Geeze... I need a break. It's one thing after another and I know a lot of you feel the same.

    Tammy :(

  • I don't have anything to add except that I'm glad you're going to your doctor and I always hate to see you having yet another issue happening.

    That danged tree house...I hope you burned it.

    (I know this might not be related, but it wouldn't seem so bad if you didn't have all the other problems, I think.)

    Take care of yourself and please, please keep us posted.

  • I hope they figure it out tomorrow and it is something simple, lord knows all of us here have more than enough problems without adding to them. Just keep up with the heat and hopefully that will keep you decently comfortable until then.
  • Can I ask why you had a hysterectomy? If it was endometriosis (sp), that can continue after the surgery, it can start growing on other parts of your body. My friend had that happen to her colon. I hope it's something simple and you feel better soon.

    When I had mine seven years ago I did not have an incision, so when they were reattaching everything they reattached to the front. If I am going to the bathroom, and sneeze or cough, or move just the wrong way OMG. For a couple of seconds it is really bad.
  • Wow, Tammy, I hope everything is okay!! I'm glad you're getting in to see your doc quickly. Let us know how it goes and what she thinks!! I was going to say I see mine next Monday, so I'll let you know what mine says as well. Feel better!!

  • I do get these type of pains as well. Mine is dead center of pubic bone though. The only thing that helps my pain is to lay down with my feet/legs up in the air.

    I was told years ago when this started my hips "act up" and the relocates ( moves ) my pubic bone.

    Not sure if this is correct info or not.. but it does make some sense to me - some ;)
