I am sorry to hear about your wife's problems.

I can see that you came online, so i am posting my answer.

Well, such symptoms could be indicative of underlying medical issue, and has to be thoroughly investigated by doctor.

Possible reasons are-

1. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). It is an infection of the reproductive organs. The pelvis is in the lower abdomen and includes the Fallopian tubes, the ovaries, the cervix, and the uterus. This can be caused by bacterial infection.

2. Ovarian Cyst.

3. Kidney stone.

4. Cystitis.

It may also arise from muscles and connective tissue (ligaments) in the structures of the pelvic floor.

Kidney stone and Ovarian cyst are the most common cause with such symptoms.

For the time, she can take OTC Tylenol and take rest. In case pain is severe, then please rush her to ER ASAP.

Otherwise, she can see doctor by tomorrow. A clinical examination and tests should be done.

She would need, Pelvic examination to assess the condition of the cervix and investigations like TVS Ultrasound for further evaluation. Also Urine routine and microscopic examination should be done.

If this is related with infection, then a course of antibiotic would be prescribed.

Please see her doctor and get it clinically evaluated.

Hope this helped
