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.

Even once I did have a name for it though, I didn't know where to begin in getting help. My OB/GYN had me get a set of dilators, but I couldn't even insert the smallest one by myself. Most times I tried I just ended up frustrated and in tears. I felt really alone, like I...
