Dull, constant ache in lower abdominal area, lower back pain. History of ovarian cysts, kidney stones. Any idea ?

Having a dull, constant ache in my lower abdominal areas like my ovaries. Both sides and middle. When I push all along that area I am tender. Also having a small ache in my lower back too. I have had cysts on my ovaries in the past and I have kidney stones as well. Runs in the family :(. I had my gall bladder removed 5 months ago. The pain is sometimes a little more intense on the right side. Any idea on what is going on or rather I should see a doctor. It started yesterday but has gotten a little worst today. Please help.

Urologist 's  Response
hi brandi, get checked by your family physician who would advise some blood and urine tests and an abdominal sonography. if there are kidney stones, he/she may refer you to a urologist, if ovarian cysts are the culprit, you need to see a gynecologist. take care.

Dermatologist Dr. Pravin Banodkar's  Response
Welcome and thanks for your question
I would be pleased to help you with your Question

From your history it looks like an inflammatory response in the lower abdomen areas which might be something called Pelvic Inflammatory disease . This might be the cause of the pain you are getting . This condition needs a treatment course with antibiotics. You will need to be examined by the doctor and a ultrasonography will need to be done which will help in ruling out other conditions like appendicitis , ovarian rupture , ovarian cysts.
Thanks and Take care
