Thanks for writing to us.

I have read your query in detail. The symptoms you have described are more likely to be symptoms of muscular spasm.

Following measures will help with the pain
• Lie on a hard bed.
• Anti -inflammatory drugs like Tablet Motrin 1 tablet with food as and when required (upto 4 tablets daily).
• Avoid forward bending.
• Avoid strenuous activity & lifting heavy weights.
• Apply diclofenac gel on the affected area. Warm compresses will also help.

I advice you to get it checked out by a gynaecologist to rule out any gynaecological cause.

I hope this answers your query. I will be available for further guidance if you needed.
Please close this discussion, if you do not have any other queries. I would appreciate your reviews about this service.

Wishing you good health...

Dr Saurabh Gupta.
