What causes tenderness at the pelvic bone?
User rating for this question
Hi. I have a very tender area at the pelvic bone and just above it, on my right side. It's not a large area, but very tender. I had an ultrasound about a month ago and it didn't show anything. What could account for tenderness in that area? Thanks.

Hi. It has been a couple of months since I first noticed the pain. The pain is toward the crease in my leg and is very tender when I touch that area. It almost feel like the ligament in that area is irritated because it is painful when I press on it and the ligament moves. I also feels a slight pain to the right of my belly button, the pain is straight up and down so it is definitely not my appendix. Thanks. I forgot to add.... I can feel it at any point in the day/night. Sitting upright seems to be a bit worse, almost as though something is there putting pressure on the area, but as I said the ultrasound didn't show anything.

Brief Answer: sprained ligament Detailed Answer: Hi By your description it appears you have sprained a ligament accidentally. It heals by itself slowly. Please apply ice packs daily. Use local anti inflammatory gel and massage area. I suggest you take rest for a week if possible. Another question I wanted to ask was did you undergo any surgeries in past, any major accidents or injuries in past ? Are you pregnant now ?
