Can lumbosacral arthritis make menstrual pain worse?

I have really bad menstrual pain as well as lumbosacral arthritis and was curious to if they are related.


Answer by  pinoot1976 (267)

Nope they are not related, two different conditions entirely. Your menstrual pain may be attributed to various conditions related to the uterus, tubes or ovaries and would require further assessment if it causes you distress. They are not a result of the arthritis and viice versa. Seek a profesional opinion if possible.


Answer by  smmacdo (96)

Most likely, the two conditions are not related to each other. Lumbosacral arthritis pain is causes by your joints, while menstrual pain is cramps from the blood lining the uterus. Of course having both conditions at once probably has a cumulative effect, but arthritis and menstrual pain are not directly related.


Answer by  bigwig (654)

The two conditions are probably not related. Arthritis is an autoimmune disorder, where your body attacks its joints, and menstrual pain is caused by something else entirely. It is probably just a coincidence.


Answer by  dorba (7)

No, lumbosacral arthritis should not make menstrual pain worse. These are two different conditions in terms of origin of pain and would be unrelated.


Answer by  LauraCalico (278)

Lumbosacral arthritis affects the lower back and pelvic area. As such, it is quite likely that the arthritis could worsen menstrual pain. This is an issue that you should address with your doctor so that he or she can assist you in finding better ways to manage the pain.


Answer by  salsafoodie (3146)

There is no difference between menstrual pain and lumbosacral arthritis. Menstrual Pain is from the blood lining of the uterus which causes cramps. Lumbosacral arthritis is threw your bones. However, they can hurt just as pain when they are both active at the same time.

Lumbosacral Arthritis itself is very painful and sometimes when you have your mensturation it will be painful. Both are not exactly co-orelated. Do some exercise like yoga and meditation and if it continues every month consult a doctor.


Answer by  Chris41 (152)

Yes, it s possible that arthritis could effect your menstrual pains, but the pains should not be a very noticeable difference.


Answer by  keke (335)

No thay are not related they are two complete different conditions meaning that lumbosacral arthritis is not making your menstual pain worse. The menstrual pain has more to do with things with the uterus but definity not the arthritis there is no way thats what causing your menstual pain to be worse.
