Hi, I’m new to this site and have been searching for a diagnosis for my abdominal pain and constipation. After 2 years of research and finally undergoing several investigations the gastroenterologist said he thought it wasn’t a digestive problem. By chance I read an article in the paper in reply to a query with symptoms similar to mine, which made me realise there could be another cause, so I am now pursuing this and have asked for a gynaecology referral.
I just wondered if anyone had tried/ had any success with hypnotherapy, as if I have a hypertonic pelvic floor ( which seems possible ) it may be an effective way to release it.I am currently taking Imipramine which has been very helpful but the problem remains. Stretching exercises do not seem to make much difference, though just lying flat on the floor seems to help the whole area to relax.
This all sounds so bizarre if I wasn’t in so much pain it could even be funny 🙃
Looking forward to any reply with great interest!
