I'd be so grateful if anyone could let me know what it could be or even if they've had the same.
For several years about 10 years ago I had an extremely painful swelling on the pubic bone (right side) which fluctuated, I think it was related to the menstrual cycle. This has improved over the years and hardly bothers me now. The improvement began after I regularly used the machine in the sports club where you hang upside down: I felt the right side between the belly button and pubic area stretching something which sort of felt glued together (the left side felt normal). After doing that twice a week for some months, the swelling stopped forming/subsiding.
Over the past year I've had pain radiating around from just to the right of my spine (lower back) around the hip to the front and downwards. I haven't worked out what the cause could be.
My periods were always regular, but the last few have been close together: 3 weeks and now only 2 weeks.
I'm 42 and had a lot of stress over the past couple of years, which is better now though. I've considered various possible causes: menopause, sitting badly (back pain), certain sports but also more scary reasons.
Thanks for any info or advice you want to share.
