Burning sensation on waist, painful. Related to periods?

Hi, I m 33 5 4 and weight 137. Recently I have been having a tearing/burning sensation on both sides of my waist . The pain doubles me over. No fever or symptoms of illness , just this pain. It happens frequently throughout the day. I have not menstruated and was wondering if it is related in any way/form? And if so should I be concerned?

Hi there,

Thanks for writing in.

Any history of burning urination or increased frequency of urination. If yes, urinary tract infection is one possibility.

Other possibilities are ovulation pain (which occurs 12-16 days before menstruation), trapped air(gas), dysmenorrhoea(pain during periods). Maybe periods is on its way. When is your expected date of menstruation? Do you think you might be pregnant?

I would suggets you drink plenty of warm fluids. Keep a warm (hot water bag) on the waist. Take a tablet of paracetamol. If the pain doesn't improve, please visit a gynaecologist.

Hope this helps.
