Can lack of sleep cause lower back pain?  4-5 hours/night. Can PCOS cause back pain? No period 4 yrs I've only started having back pain for a month

Internship memories!: I think you'll find your answers best addressed by a well-researched recent article in Time magazine about sleep disorders, nightmares, and post-traumatic stress. I recommend after reviewing the article that you ask your physician to direct you to the local sleep medicine specialist who can provide diagnostic and therapeutic options to achieve a full-night's sleep. Need further tests for back. ...Read more

Am having heavy periods and am passing clots. Severe back pain. Diagnosed with PCOS. Will there be any other problem?

YES.: The most immediate problem associated with heavy vaginal bleeding is iron-deficiency anemia. If not done already, a blood count, iron levels and thyroid hormone should be checked.

I'm having lower back pain, bleeding with clots that are rubbery and I have pcos why? Am actively trying to get pregnant I do have pcos. Haven't taken pills to get pregnant but me and my husband are trying. My lower back pain hurts to bend over and I am no

When : When a patient is actively trying to get pregnant, heavy bleeding with clots can represent several issues. Complicating the situation here is the pcos. Pcos as you know causes fluctuation of hormones and can cause irregular ovulation and bleeding. Bleeding and clotting can represent dysfunctional uterine bleeding or sometimes can represent a miscarriage. Taking a pregnancy test can be helpful. If a patient has heavy bleeding or feels light-headed, then seeing their doctor is certainly a reasonable next step. ...Read more

Sudden severe lower back pain bending at waist to pick up backpack cause? Hist: htn pcos 209lbs 18yrs old fell on tailbone 2 yrs ago no md evaluation.

Sudden severe lower back pain bending at waist to pick up backpack cause? Hist: htn pcos 209lbs 18yrs old fell on tailbone 2 yrs ago no md evaluation.

Too numerous: The possible causes are too numerous to go over in detail. Without knowing your height, a diagnosis of obesity is impossible, though 209 lbs is typically quite a load for the low back muscles, disc, and joint to handle. You may in fact have an issue with your lumbar facet joints even at your young age. A proper evaluation by a spine specialist is certainly needed. For now google coccydynia too. ...Read more

I have endometriosis and pcos. I have been having hot flashes, nausea, back pain, increase in vaginal discharge and fatigue x2wks. Preg test negative.

PCOS / Endometriosis: The most important bit of missing information is your last menstrual period. At age 26, you are almost surely not menopausal, but if your bleeding is late (common in women with pcos) continued production of estrogen can cause increase in clear vaginal mucous. Pain and associated nausea are common symptoms of endometriosis. Thyroid dysfunction and tubal pregnancy also must be considered. ...Read more

Cuurently. Pcos... Ovaries -10 cysts on left, 15cysts on right. Stomach swollen/bloated, back pain. Hospitalized recently severe kidney infection. Help?

Likely not related: You haven't actually asked a question ... But these things are unlikely related. Kidney infection (pyelonephritis) has nothing at all to do with pcos. Back pain can go with pyelo, but abdomen swelling wouldn't. If your cysts are large that could give swelling, but even 20-30 small cysts would be un-noticeable. Is there something specific you'd like to know? ...Read more

I have pcos and just got my period for the first time in months. I have really bad lower back pain and my breast are sore. Is this normal?

Yes: When you get a period after so many months specially with PCOS, your periods may be heavier and more painful. Your breast can also be sore. Please see your doctor to see if you need an endometrial biopsy. Patients who have long term PCOs need to be monitored for endometrial hyperplasia a condition that results for unopposed estrogen in PCOS. Good Luck! ...Read more
