Well, unfortunately, any of those 3 things can contribute to the pain..
The IUD if not in the right place can cause severe pain. And I know my daughters started to work it's way in places it shouldn't be. But her doc said that was rare, and she other "female" issues anyway..
The c-section cuts into lots of abdominal muscles, if you don't strengthen them back up, your lower back is doing all the work for a bunch of other muscles, and can cause some pain and discomfort there..not only in the back, but across that whole section.(See, I listened to my therapist! lol)
And your fibro, not an expert there.. I am working on it, but, a trauma to the body (such as a c-section) can cause flares, right Sherrine? so, I guess it would make sense that that trauma can be effecting your progress..at least that seems to make logical sense to me..
I too have a lot of abdominal pain, and they told me it was probably from the scar tissue from so many abdominal surgeries. I have had 2 c-sections, a total colectomy, and a hysterectomy, then had to be opened up in October to take out an ovarian cyst..so when you add ALL those up, tummy muscles are SHOT!
Good luck, hope you feel better soon!
