I've been having low back/right pelvic pain (2 in. above mons pubis/possibly where ovary is?) for a month now. I was told it could be a hip ligament issue, but I'm worried about it being an ovarian issue. How can I tell the difference between the two?

"low back/right pelvic pain" seeks differentiation as to pelvic ligament vs. ovary pain generation. Pelvic examination, by Gynecologist, w. ovary palpation arousal of ipsilateral pain suggests ovary. Low back exam arousing ipsilateral positive Fortin, Gillette & Forward Flexion Test Signs, elicited by an Osteopath, are pathognomonic for pelvic ligament disorder/pain generation.

At Quora.com on my Pain Syndrome board, a bibliography presents more than 100 medical studies of the sacroiliac joint. Most physicians are unaware that this joint has a normal range of motion, and that joint ligament injury and laxity can cause this large joint to have abnormal range of motion; absent inflammation & unable to be imaged because it is a subtle movement disorder; as med lit reports.
