I was hoping to hear what other people's experiences were as far as abdominal bloating and back pain prior to diagnosis. I've had pelvic pain on and off for years. My gyn usually attributes it to 3 c-sections with 3 very big babies. Recently I've had some back pain centered on my right side. It's right in the middle of my back, at the bottom of my rib cage. Over the last couple of days I've been really bloated. Yesterday it was so bad I felt like I was 8 months pregnant. Today the bloating is a lot better, though not completely gone. My question is: if you experienced back pain or abdominal bloating prior to diagnosis, was it constant or did it come or go? Like everyone, I hate going to the doctor's office and don't want to go unless I really have to. Thank you in advance for any information you can share.
