Pregnant: Tough to say what your pains are caused by, BUT since you are pregnant, it is important to assure the baby inside you is doing well. Call your OB/GYN dr asap and get a clinical exam to be properly assessed and diagnosed. Best wishes and congratulations on the pregnancy. ...Read more

A ct scan of the abdomen may be helpful here for your reassurance. ...Read more

Abdominal pain: The sharp nature of your pain and the fact that is worse with movement does sound like a pulled muscle. If you're having persistent symptoms however i would recommend that you see your doctor for a complete history and physical examination. ...Read more

Medical Care: The er will blow it off then as well. Perhaps you should consider getting a new OB or revisiting your doctor and explaining you feel you need some answers or pain relief. The doctors in the er are not obstetricians. ...Read more

Possible muscle pull: If it is persistent, would see your dr to r/o a hernia. Sometimes it comes from a strain of the musle attachments to the pelvic bones. Hip injuries and lumbar back strains are sometimes the cause. You dr can help sort out the source. ...Read more
