For the last 4 months I have been experiencing sharp shooting pains in my lower abdomen and cervix area. The pains come and go quite often and this is happening on a daily basis. Sometimes the pains make it hard for me to sit down. Please help
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. In view of the pains, Iâll suggest getting an ultrasound of the lower abdomen done as thereâs a possibility of the pains being due to a stone in the urinary tract which can present in a similar way and make a person restless and difficult to sit. A urine analysis should also be done as it tends to complement the ultrasound by looking for any stones in the urine and also for ruling out the urinary tract infection. Any gynaecological cause for the pains like any cysts in the ovaries, fibroids in the uterus etc can also be picked by the ultrasound.
