Pain in lower back and abdomen
It started with pain, what felt like, in my left ovary or somewhere in my lower abdomen. Then a few hours later my left lower back started hurting. It`s too low to be my kidneys. I know where that pain occurs because I`ve had kidney infections before. Could it be that "Toxic Sydrom" females can get in their uterus? I know you can get that from keeping tampons in too long, but I don`t even use tampons. Or what could it be?
Thank you for the question. I am not sure I can give the proper answer at this time without more information. I advise you to see your primary care physician to try to figure out the source of the pain (back vs. abdomen). Thanks.
