Who else has been diagnosed with avulsed levator ani muscle

10 Replies

I have been diagnosed with levator-ani syndrome, Dysfunctional bowel, painful bladder syndrome and urinary incontinence.I receive vaginal internal /external trigger point therapy from my specialist womens physio. I also get botox injections into pubirectalis muscles.

Combination of treatments do not eradicate pain but I definitely get some relief.

I also take antispasmodic medication and pain killers for help with pain.

Can I ask what are your symptoms and what treatment you receive?

My symptoms are constant bowel into anus and vagina, and burning pain on right side of vagina.

Had this awful disease a year ago, it finally went away. My doctor gave me gabapentin I think that helped also some therapy.

I don’t think your levator ani muscle is avulsed (torn away from its support) as there is no fix surgically. I’d like to see your doctor if he can repair it.

I was diagnosed with this but it is not the correct diagnosis. There was no code for PN disfunction when I getting injections so my dr. called it this to get me covered by insurance! Intravaginal lidocaine into sore area about 2x year for 3 years. it took a few weeks to notice the effects but it sure did help. Now I take CBD capsules and I have no problem except when I sit too long😄

I live in Indianapolis. The doctors name is Sameena Rau

Is that a pelvic floor physio therapist who makes such diagnosies? I am asking out of curiosity.

Diagnosed by translabial ultrasound at Johns Hopkins urogynecology but no repair available

Ok great thank you
