Hi, I would be happy to help you with your question.
First of all, given the clear association with your cycle, I do not believe that the T12 fracture
is playing a significant role. While you probably have some baseline low back pain
, there clearly seems to be something that is above and beyond that pain that is probably a GYN source of pain.
Given the pain description being before and during your period, and the associated pain with intercourse (I am making this assumption), I think that there is a distinct possibility that you have endometriosis
. This is when glandular cells from within the uterus
get into the pelvis and "cycle" causing pain that is exactly as you describe.
While the fibroids are likely playing a role as well, they typically are associated with heavy, painful periods - not necessarily pain one week before your period.
Here is what I recommend:
1. Schedule a visit with your OB/GYN
2. Ask what they think about the possibility of endometriosis
3. Ask about options for treatment (birth control pills, depo-provera
4. Ask if they think a laparoscopy
(a surgery where one looks into the pelvis) would be indicated
5. Consider whether you would be amenable to a hysterectomy
at the same time if you are done with child-bearing.
I am sure that you will find a solution and plan. Good luck. I hope this helps!!
