Sneezing caused me pain.
The other night I sneezed and it felt like the lower right side of my pelvis ripped apart. I had to curl up I. A ball to get the pain to go away and even then it took a day or two for the pain to go away completely. I have endometriosis could it just be scar tissue? Should I see my ob/gyn?

Hello, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum!

If you have endometriosis then yes, the pain after sneezing could be due to scar tissue. It could also be due to a muscle pull. Pain in the lower right abdomen can also be due to appendicitis (chronic which became painful after sneezing). Since a confirmed diagnosis cannot be given on net please consult your gynecologist regarding this. Hope this helps. Take care!
