I have frequent urination, pain in my lower stomach, and pain in my lower back. My period is due next week. Could these be related?
Though a doctor is the only one who can diagnose a condition, I do wonder if you have a bladder infection. The symptoms you describe are typical with a urinary tract infection (UTI). It's best to see your doctor for a UTI test so that you can get on some medication for it if this is the case. They do not typically cure themselves. I hope you're feeling better!
