Hi, I'm Dr Palmer. Not sure if I will be able to help you much since an US was already done, but I can give you the most common cause of this feeling

Expert:  Christopher Palmer replied 2 months ago.

A dragging sensation can be due to a urinary tract infection, fibroids (growths on the uterine wall), or uterine prolapse. Was a gynecological pelvic exam done?

Expert:  Christopher Palmer replied 2 months ago.

Here is some info: Top is on uterine prolapse and bottom is bladder prolapse. Both can cause this dragging sensation. She should see a gynecologist and/or urologist to have it checked.

How old is your mother? These can be common problems in elderly especially with history of multiple vaginal delivery births. This is certainly not serious, but can be uncomfortable. There are surgeries and exercises that can help.

can I ask you question, does this Couse pain
Expert:  Christopher Palmer replied 2 months ago.

Usually not pain.. More so an odd sensation like you mentioned, a dragging sensation. Severe prolapse can, but she would notice if it was severe.

Expert:  Christopher Palmer replied 2 months ago.

I hope this helps, it really is unlikely to be anything else beside what I have mentioned above. A gynecologist or Urologist needs to to a pelvic exam, preferably a gynecologist.

Expert:  Christopher Palmer replied 2 months ago.

Again, its nothing serious that needs any immediate intervention. She may notice when she bears down like shes having a bowel movement, then feeling might intensify or worse standing than sitting.
