Undiagnosed back pain

Ask The Doctor > Uncategorized > Undiagnosed back pain

Patient: For the past couple of months I’ve been having a pain in my lower left back in the hip region, occasionally the pain gets really bad and stretches round to my pelvic region about where my ovaries are. I’ve also been feeling generally unwell, exhausted. have started urinating alot and been having pain in my abdomen during sex. I’ve tested for pregnancy, been tested for STI’s, it’s not in the right place for a kidney infection and I’ve been to see a chiropractor which didn’t help. I’m not sure if it’s something I should be worried about and if I should go see my doctor.
