The only way to know for sure what is causing your pain is to discuss all your symptoms with your doctor. If your pain is increasing, you need to tell that to your doctor and see what they can do for you. Has your ob/gyn been involved in your treatment for this injury? If not, it would be wise to bring them into the process.
