Can anyone give me advice on how to get through very modest exercises without having painful flares?
I have a history of very tight muscles in the pelvic region. Recently, I have tried very modest exercises mostly targeted towards Strengthening my core. Most recently I simply tried to simply contract my transverse abdominus on and off for 2 minutes 3 times a day. Even a pigeon stretch for my piriformis results in a flare
The flare itself consists of constant burning in the anal area along with the formation of very painful blisters also in the anal area. Sitting becomes impossible. I have a history of issues with the anal branch of the pudendal nerve and suspect it is involved. Thanks for any help you might be able to provide
Update-just got back from PT and we identified the root cause but do not know how to reverse it. If I contract my pelvic floor muscles they take 5-10 seconds to very slowly relax-and not completely. Does anyone else have any experience in solving this problem pelvic muscles which will not relax?
