Wondering if anyone has had an MRI and whether it was of any use?
I have had a diagnosis of 'potentially' pudendal neuralgia. I have pain in the perinium when sitting, and an abrasive sensation in that area. I also have a history of lower back issues. An MRI when I was 30 showed a weak disc at S3.
On the NHS website, an MRI is one option for pudendal neuralgia. I am interested in this - perhaps it might help diagnose the cause.
However, I have been unable to persuade my GP, and also the doctor and physio at the pain management dept. They say my lower back seems ok - this is due to my daily regime of lower back exercises and taking care of myself!
Anyway - has anyone had a diagnosis from an MRI, has it helped show the cause of pelvic pain? I don't know whether to carry on trying to persuade my GP so any advice would be welcomed, thanks.
