Pain and burning after miscarriage

User Profile
two days after miscarriage and d and c i experienced abdominal pain (sharp stabbing in lower right pelvic area) one week later pain was still there and started to get pins and needles in hands and feet and they were cold, now one week after pins and needles have gone and the pain remains however im experiencing internal burning, lower back, top of thighs, chest and today in my head. Consultant has scanned internal and external and found cyst on ovary 3 cm(says its normal) blood and urine show no signs of infection.I am currently in hospital and they dont know what it could be however the pain and burning remain. the pain is not getting worse however the burning sensation is spreading. Appendicitus has been ruled out and have been on laxatives to ensure no blockages i just need to know as i am scared that no-one seems to be able to diagnose my problem. it is also hot when i pee has anyone got any ideas?

According to the data you provided, you might be experiencing pelvic inflammatory disease. In your case, the pelvic inflammatory disease does not have to be related with infection. The dilation and curettage is a procedure in which the inner lining of the uterus is actually damaged and might have caused inflammation in the tissue surrounding the uterus. When swollen, this pelvic tissue might out pressure on the pelvic nerves, thus causing the pain.
You might want to have another blood test including inflammatory markers (C-reactive protein being one of them).
