Back at beginning of March it started as an itch in the rectum by the end of March I was unable to sit . The itch turned into twisting and throbbing , then my bottom muscles went into spasm and not forgetting the shooting pain ! I've been X rayed had MRI 's , seen a number of orthopaedic consultants thank god for medical insurance . They found nothing . So I started looking into my symptoms and found this monster called Pudendal neuralgia !
Before all this started I was a fit vibrant mother , I worked in district nursing which i feel I may lose . I loved my garden i even miss housework . I feel very isolated and lonely . Enough of that!
I've been to see consultant in London , had another MRI going for follow up next Tuesday for results and discuss nerve blocks . Has anyone had success with nerve blocks?
I've also been seeing pelvic physio in London for the last couple of months which I've seen small improvements .
I'm on medication 150mg Pregab and Naproxen which takes the edge of it , also been taking magnesium .
I struggle everyday with burning pain , yes forgot to say that's my pain now burning in the rectum , groin , bottom cheeks , down my legs and my feet hurt , so going for a walk which I do daily to get out can be a chore.
I have to say finding this site has helped a lot over the past months , especially the bad days .
