Low back pain, cervix painful. On anti-inflammatory shot. Had fever. Explain?
An internist (not obgyn ) did 3-4 swab tests for stds 2 days ago. During didn t hurt, but overnight that night I got a horrible very low back pain and pain in my cervix . Since then the pain is just as bad. My rheumatologist today said the back pain is where my si joints are and gave me an anti-inflammatory shot which helped the back a bit. But the cervix still hurts and pain seems to be sometimes extending into the uterus/ovaries/lower abdomen/pelvic region. I just want to know if this could be an infection that I would need treatment for or if it is just irritated and will go away on its own? I do not have a fever or any other signs besides these. But the cervix and back pain HURTS! Ouch! Thank you
Hi there, Welcome to HCM. You suspect infection when there is fever, any discharge, itching and pain while passing urine. I agree with your rhematologist, that the pain is because of sacro iliac joints inflammation. thanks.
