Does anyone have low back pain as a symptom of PCOS?
I've lived with PCOS for years (was diagnosed over 10 years ago) and have never had this as a symptom but I'm starting to suspect it now.
About 6 months ago I started to have a dull ache in my lower back. It's pretty constant, but sometimes it's worse than others. The pain is in the center of my lower back, but sometimes it extends all the way around to my ovary area. It leaves my back very stiff and sometimes it is uncomfortable even to sit!
At first, I thought the low back pain was a result of a dance injury (I take dance class 2 times a week) but even when I stopped going for a couple of weeks there was no relief. I've seen a chiropractor (that only provided very temorary relief) as well as a massage theripist (didn't help). I'm starting to think it has nothing to do with my back at all, but rather is a symptom of PCOS (perhaps some cysts are growing??). I've scheduled a Dr's appointment to have an ultrasound to check out the cysts.
Does anyone else experience back pain as a result of PCOS?
