Anyone experience chronic pelvic pain due to anxiety?

Absolutely! It wasn't until I had a scan to check everything out that it started to go away! Feel better soon.

hi SallyHart, may i ask what kind of scan did they do to check?
i'm also having this pelvic pain for quite sometime now. it is mostly on the left side which radiates through my left thigh.

I had a pelvic abdo CT then an ultrasound. Mine was on the right side. Incidentally they noted a small benign cyst on the ovary but categorically state that this could never cause all the pain I was having. My Gyne said I may have PID so gave me some antibiotics for 2 weeks. Didn't really make a difference but soon as I moved onto my next fear that pain went!!! Go figure. Yes I was experiencing thigh and leg pain too.

did they find the cyst through the CT scan? or through ultrasound?

i also had a pelvic/ abdominal CT with contrast and everything is normal.
i was just worried that they might missed something on my ct-scan.

They didn't see it on the CT but as it was pain near my ovary they did an ultrasound. It was only seen when they did the transvaginal one....seems the ovary was hiding. Maybe you could ask your doc but I would say that nothing sinister is going on as the CT would for sure pick up on things like that.

I doubt it very much. CT with contrast is exceptionally good for finding anything bad. They only did mine because my pain was excruciating. Please try to believe them but just go for a chat if you are still having pain. Remember HA causes pains.

Thanks! I had a CT as well and found nothing. I also had an X-ray in mid October, which they saw kidney stones, but those have since passed. I’m thinking all the stress and anxiety from having the pain to begin with is lingering and chained more pelvic and back pain. Just so frustrated and ready to feel like myself again!

It is HA I tell you....it plays all these tricks on us. I often wonder what we would have done years ago when all this testing wasn't around. WEare lucky really.
