Sounds a lot like I was YEARS before I was diagnosed. Maybe see if you can't get a CATscan with contrast and/or an MRI across your lower abdomen. That's what found that I had a massive infection that was shutting down my internal organs. It was causing swelling in a disc in my spine as well. I couldn't enjoy sex with my (at the time) boyfriend (married him haha). It was pretty special pain. No STD's, but pain in my lower back, cramping, a continual burning fire feeling in my lower gut. Sex was painful. Ended up with a hemorrhoid from always feeling like I needed to go and from a feeling of gas I couldn't...um...get out. They thought maybe I had cancer (at least my gynecologist did) from blood work and from the physical exam. Still and all...I didn't get diagnosed for five years. I had three surgeries after I went to my gynecologist...who sent me on to a gastroenterologist who said before she'd examine me I needed a CATscan with contrast, an MRI, and a small bowel follow through.
Hope you get some answers...and hope its nothing serious.
