Mystery pain won't go away?? Watch

    Okay so three days ago I got a sharp pain below my stomach (pelvis I guess, I'm bad at saying where pain is), it came completely out of nowhere. I know it's not period pains, and it hurts more when I sit in certain positions.
    I am bad at googling symptoms, but I can't visit my GP until Friday due to uni interviews.
    Does anyone know what this could be...?

    Just make an appointment for as soon as you can. As long as the pain stays bearable and doesn't stop you doing stuff it should be okay leaving it a few days. If you want you can call 111 to check they don't think it's something more urgent.
    Reasons behind pain in that general area can include a UTI or other infection, IBS or gut pain (like if you've eaten something that doesn't agree with you), constipation, a slight injury like scratch on your cervix (can happen during intercourse) and stress. There are some other more serious causes, but it's far more likely to be something relatively minor like those I mentioned.

    While you wait to see your gp you can try warming packs to sooth muscles, gentle massaging of the area, normal painkillers, relaxation and peppermint tea (helps with gut/ gas pain by relaxing muscles). You can also think about if you are urinating more often, haven't been number 2 in a while or are struggling a little more when you do, had intercourse before it started or have any slight discharge etc. That will just help point your dr in the right direction.

    If it gets so bad you're struggling to do normal things or normal painkillers aren't helping at all you may want to consider seeing somebody sooner. You could see if you can have a phone appointment with your doctor, go to a walk-in or even just see a pharmacist. You can always call 111 for advice if you aren't sure what to do.

    Good luck with your interviews and try not to worry too much about your pains. Hope you feel better soon
