In brief: Musculoskeletal

Twenties female with low back and hip pain limiting motion and around time of menses absent abdominal pain, fever, and dysuria might have sciatica related to sacroiliac joint disorder, which can worsen due to secretion of hormone relaxin at this time.
Such problems express in women with joint hypermobility syndrome, as is described by the brighton criteria.
