I have suffered from excruciating and debilitating pelvic pain since the birth of my son in January 2015. I have seen two physical therapists for pelvic floor dysfunction after referral by my OBGYN. On two ocassions, the pain subsided with the physical therapy ... and then went away completely for almost a year, and now it is flared up again. I was in the ER last Friday with what I thought was a kidney stone - the pain was so bad! I did have a little bit of a bladder infection along with horrific pelvic pain. After a follow-up appointment with my urologist and OBGYN, I have started physical therapy again for pelvic floor dysfunction, but it does not seem to be helping as well as it has in the past. My new PT said that she thinks I have pudendal neuralgia after performing an internal examination.
Currently, I take Flexeril for muscle spasm and Tramadol for pain. Occasionally, I take hydrocodone for severe pain. I was also diagnosed with interstitial cystitis in 2009.
The pain is just excruciating, and is the worst when I am sitting. I work part-time currently, just four hours a day, and I receive social security disability because of depression and interstitial cystitis.
What treatments do you all find beneficial for pudendal neuralgia? Please provide any info that could help me to find some relief with this.
