It could be disc related in the lower lumbar...I had this as well, but only get it every now and then...I had it with the heriated disc I had....
 Severe herniated S1 disc that caused never damage on left side and wonderful reflex tricks, mild herniated L4/5 disc, severe spinal stenosis, panic disorder, major depression and if that wasn't enough IBS with the beginning stages of diverticulosis.

Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome is a real beast and it can affect both men & women by different vectors. Lyme is one, many other types of infections are among the others. Endometriosis is also another common trigger. So is reproductive/hernia/groin/pelvic surgery in men & women. Unfortunately the treatments are few & far between in terms of safe & effective options.

I can suggest several anti-inflammatory herbs/supplements including turmeric, bromelain, ginger, cayenne, etc....and Yoga can also help a lot. But ultimately, you should also consider serious pain control. The longer you want the further "behind the curve" you'll be with regard to treating your pain....
Conditions: Chronic Pelvic Pain, Severe Lesioning of the Spermatic Cord, Reiter Syndrome (Reactive Arthritis and Myalgias along with a slew of other symptoms), Sacroiliitis, Costochondritis, widespread Tendonitis, and on and on. Typical daily pain levels exceed 8.5.

Medications: Oxycontin 320mg/day+, OxyIR 5mg for breakthrough, Flexeril, Soma, many herbs & supplements.
