    Pelvic Pain
    mwiegers35 posted:
    For going on 3 months now, I have had severe pelvic pain just above my belt line, below my belly button. It especially hurts after exercise or when I cough or sneeze. I am a 41 year old male and the pain is progressively getting worse, and my doctor had a pelvic CT scan done that came back normal. He wants me to see a GI doctor because he suspects it might be colon related? I don't know what to do...

    I'm so sorry for your pain and hope that you feel better soon! I will keep my fingers crossed that your symptoms are nothing serious. Have spoken to your doctor about the possibility of a hernia or kidney stone? I'm not a medical professional by any means, but have read that sharp pains in the stomach are side effects of each.

    Here is the WebMD Hernia Overview and the WebMD Kidney Stone Overview for you to look over and speak to a professional for more insight. I hope that you find relief and the best of health in the near future! Take care
    Best Wishes! Amelia
