Lower back pain 5 days before period. Is this a normal symptom?

Dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea, or pain associated with menstrual cycles, tends to be multifactorial (i.e., many causes). Gynecological sources of pain may include endometriosis, fibroids, and premenstrual syndrome (pms). However, low back pain can arise from hormonal changes which, in turn, can affect the elastin in connective tissues of the spine itself. Consult with your gynecologist for a formal evaluation.
