It just started like an hour ago. If I stand up or stretch a sharp stabbing pain will occur in my lower left pelvic area by my hip. When I clear my throat or cough it is awful. If I'm not moving I don't even notice it. This has never happened before. I started my period the day before Yesterday. I don't think this has anything to do with it as this has never happened before and definitely is not cramping pain. I'm hoping it's gone by morning when I wake up. It's just weird that it started out of nowhere tonight and I've searched all through google and forums and can't find anything describing this.
Sudden pain in the pelvis can be due to muscle pull, nerve pinching,strain,injury or trauma. If it is persistent or arises again then some other causes can be thought of as hernia, bone injury, pelvic infection etc. Observe for few days and if it arises again then consider getting a clinical examination done which is quite important.
