I have been having persistent lower right pelvic pain for more than month now. I had a pelvic ultrasound, CT scan, and everything looked normal. They said it's probably IBS (which is basically anything that can't be explained) or food intolerance (unlikely because I have changed nothing recently). While it's good to know there's nothing serious going on, I still have to live with this pain. Is there any possible way that this could be due to MS?
This depends on the nature of the pain; lancinating, burning, or needle-like superficial pain following sensory dermatomes could be related to MS or even a condition called zoster sine herpete (shingles pain without the rash). A tight squeezing sensation that can be intermittently painful may also occur with spinal cord involvement by MS.
Non MS related causes are far more numerous and more common for pelvic pain even in MS patients.
