I'm a big fan of the 'if our bodies do it, it probably isn't useless' philosophy. While BH contractions probably aren't causing significant dialation, they probably are helping to prepare you somehow - maybe by helping the cervix efface, or move baby into position, etc.
It is funny how I complain to DH all day about feeling miserable, but I LOVE feeling any sort of cervical pain - though I haven't had anything as intense as you are desribing. It sounds good to me!
