i beleive i have this. It all started about 3 months ago. Dr.s say its just a pulled muscle. But i know its sumthing worse. It feels like im sitting on sumthing?? Lifting wieghts, riding bike, just lifting my legs up aggrivates it alot. I've taken 3 months off from the gym and that doesnt help at all. I also have pelvic pain and a few other symptoms. Anyone going threw this problem??
I am! Dang, it looks like there aren't a lot of answers for this condition going around this website. If you're still around, I'd be happy to answer any questions. I had it for years before finding a diagnosis, but got one last year and had decompression surgery for it two months ago. I feel like I'm fixed even though it's a long haul of other little things back to normalcy.
I have had two nerve blocks now I have EMG's every two weeks or so, donut pillow, back pain, plenty of meds. The stabbing pain is not so intense since the start of the EMG's, do a lot of Kegel exercises as well, it helps to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. Ask your physician about Neurontin, Cymbalta and something to help with the pain. Do not do anything to aggravate the condition.

My doctors are having a terrible time trying to find someone to do this stupid nerve block. I am currently on about 13 medications including Gabapentin and Methadone. Still, I am stuck in bed now for 4 months. HELP!!
Have been in pelvic floor p.t. for about 4 months. It has helped my chronic pain. But, even though pain is better it is still there. I was just told I may have pudendal entrapment. After trying some things I think I agree I have it. Tell me exactly what this nerve blocks involve. Also, who performed the block. Already on neuroten for bladder pain.
I am too. I have had this since 2001 after being used as a human mop. Currently I am on 13 different medications and I have been stuck in bed for 5 months. Watch out, you are in for a bumpy ride. Take some research to your doctor and tell them you think u have this. Only like 6 doctors in the world know how to treat PN.
