My wife has suffered from severe chronic pain in right buttock for well over 13 years now. In 2002, diagnosis was inflammation of the sacroiliac joint and my wife was thereafter subjected to a regime of painkillers and anti-depressants, combined with very painful pain block injections which always made the pain much worse. Around 2011, the diagnosis changed to damage to the pudendal nerve and she was subject to some very painful physio treatment. Eventually she was referred to a London pain management specialist who then changed the diagnosis to damage to the central nervous system. With the pain increasing and her mobility getting less and less, she is also subject to IBS and Type 2 diabetes. She is about to be reassessed at a local pain management clinic but in the meantime does anyone have experience of a similar condition?
