Pelvic girdle stress: 32 y female with "pubic bones ache in morning". No other info given. Assuming this is long-term & not related to infection, it might be the case that her pelvic girdle harbors loose joints related to Hypermobility Syndrome &/or injury, & a loose sacroiliac joint; ligaments of which are stressed/pained as bony pelvic girdle ring is torqued by ground forces of sleep surface. See an Osteopath.

Osteopaths are trained in general medicine & are experts of musculoskeletal functions & disorders. They are adept at diagnosing soft tissue causes of chronic pain disorders; especially common ones secondary to mundane injuries.

A disordered pelvic girdle arouses pain as it impacts sleep surface ground forces, which translate around pelvis bony ring; to stress the loosest pelvic joint; symphysis pubis &/or sacroiliac; unlike vertebral spine disorders, which are ameliorated by lying down positions.

My estimation: about 15% of women are born w. genetic variation called "benign Joint Hypermobility Syndrome", JHS. These women are "double jointed" & flexible; have pelvises more easily injured by falls, lifting accidents, MVA's & childbirths. There are varying degrees of penetrance of JHS.

Inflammation: Varies, some patients will get inflammation in their symphysis pubis that can be worse in the morning, other possibilities as well. Don't hesitate to be seen for it.

How is pain from a fracture treated?

First and foremost: The fracture has to be immobilized by a cast or splint. That alone will make things a lot better. After that, there are pain medications to help deal with the early days following the injury. The pain will ease up considerably, long before the fracture has completely healed.

I got epidydmo orchitis and took antibiotics for almost one month. But pain still there. Blood tests and ultrsound and urinetest are good.?

Still healing?: If the epididymitis was cleared by the antibiotic, the symptoms should have remitted by now. Possibly there is residual cord inflammation leading to persistent pain. You didn't mention if the physical exam was normal or not. Please see your doctor for an actual examination again, or consult a urologist to see what's going on.
