Intense sudden pain

Hello, I'm new here and was wondering if anyone has heard of, or experienced the strange pain I've been experiencing for a the past few years. Before the question is asked, yes, I've seen doctor's for it. But they're military doctors, and I use the term "doctor" loosely with most of them. 

So, the only way to describe it would be seemingly random bouts of absolute intense pain, seemingly originating from above my tail bone, but below what I'd consider my lower back. Sort of the pivot point area. This pain seems to shoot straight through to my pelvic area, and even down into my testicles (pain similar to being kicked in the nether regions). When this occurs (usually while in the process of standing) I am forced on to my hands and knees in pain, if not into a fetal position, and must simply remain there until the pain goes away. This pain usually lasts about a minute, though one time it lasted for a couple of hours. And nothing can be done to hasten the pain away other than not moving. 

When I say this is completely random, I mean it can happen once or twice for a week, then, not have another instance again for months or even years. I haven't noticed any particular pattern to it either, other than it usually involving me standing up straight. And the best answer I've gotten from the oh so helpful Navy doctors is "I don't know" or "I've never heard of those symptoms."

I'm obviously not coming here for a diagnosis, but I was hoping I'm not crazy, and this pain isn't some weird trick of my mind. 

Thanks for any help.
