I'm currently living in Sweden and was diagnosed with pelvic floor pain 5 years ago. Since then, I've only been given different types of medication from the general doctors here and the symptoms have only been getting worse. I haven't been able to find anyone who specializes in this sort of problem here, but i've read a ton online about it and now know that I'm not getting adequate help. Is there anyone in Sweden (or nearby somewhere in Europe) that can recommend a doctor and/or therapist who can help? After researching, I'm pretty certain I have either stressed pelvic floor muscles and/or an irritated/trapped pudendal nerve. I've never had any kind of test so I can't be sure. I'm so desperate now because I basically have to lay down all the time just to avoid pain. Like others, I'm starting to get depressed and am losing hope that anything can be done to, at the very least, limit the symptoms so I can live a somewhat normal life. I've never had these kinds of problems with pain before. It's been the opposite...I once broke my arm in 4 places and then biked home 2 km before I had a friend drive me to the doctor. But now I'm basically an invalid. I could write a book about making excuses not to got out in social situations that I know will make things worse. I have no social life anymore and if I wasn't a researcher I would have lost my job long ago. If things get any worse, I'm afraid I will lose that as well.
Does anyone have any advice on where to go to get some kind of help? Anything would be much appreciated!
Thanks in advance,
