Pudendal Neuralgia

Pudendal Neuralgia:

Pudendal Neuralgia has been described as throbbing or severe stabbing pain along the pathway of the pudendal nerve that runs through the gluteal, pudendal canal and perineal region. This pain typically increases during sitting and is reduced or relieved by sitting on a toilet seat.

There is no sensory loss on clinical examination and an anesthetic pudendal nerve block is positive. Patients are not woken at night by pain, but do have pain during waking hours. Other clinical criteria can provide additional arguments in favor of the diagnosis of pudendal neuralgia, such as painful bowel movements or a feeling of fullness in the vaginal canal or rectum.This has also been termed Cyclists' Syndrome when it occurs in long-distance cyclists.

I don’t take for granted that I can easily get out of bed, care for my two active and busy young boys, run, play tennis, clean my house, or sit at a desk for several hours at a time. None of these tasks were easy for me before meeting Heather. Eight years ago my car was struck from behind by a tractor trailer that was estimated to have been speeding. I spent 3 years working with different PTs and Drs...
