Hi - Every couple of months I awake (usually from a nightmare) with horrible pain in my pelvic area. The pressure is so strong it feels as if I am in labor and about to push. It starts in the rectal area (I originally thought maybe constipation, but no) and then radiates to the vaginal area. It really feels like I am going to push a bowling ball out! The pain only lasts maybe 10 - 15 min thankfully and then goes away. Anyone else experience anything like this?
