Welcome to the chronic pain forum. I can definitely answer your question with a "yes", although it might depend on what type of pelvic pain you're talking about. Nerve pain can be referred to various places in our body, plus some of the nerves in the lower spine actually provide the sensation for the pelvic region, so if a nerve is being squeezed or otherwise impinged, it certainly can affect that region.
I had a wonderful physical therapist a couple of years ago who was able to locate the source of one of area of pain in my groin area and relieve it by releasing a muscle. I only wish the rest of my pain had been as easy to resolve!
If you are having any symptoms such as urinary incontinence along with the pain, it can be a serious condition called Cauda Equina Syndrome (CES). You might try googling that (sorry I don't have a link handy) and see if your symptoms fit. If so, you need to see a doctor immediately. Otherwise, I'd still suggest consulting a neurologist - or see what your GYN suggests as a follow up.
Again, welcome to the forum.
