Hello there wondering if anyone has suffered or know anyone that suffers from Pelvic Nerve Compression.

A relation of ours happens to be a GP and has diagnosed another relation with this condition. She suffers from pain in gentle/anal area caused by compression of the pelvic nerve. Its quite rare and can go on for months or years. Can be caused by spinal trauma. There are no obvious signs for a GP and MRI scans cant always pick it up.

Our family GP has given consistantly accurate diagnosis in the past, more so than that of our local GP. When I say diagnosed its not offical as he has only made an educated guess (or is that what they do anyway being doctors). He has not had a chance to examine and has had no test reults I suppose. There are no obvious physical signs mind and MRI scans cant always pick it up.

It can so say go on for months and in some cases years. Has anyone experienced this condition in themselves or another and how long did it go on for and how did they manage the pain.

I know a few people that suffer with this, It's a not too uncommon thing for cyclists to end up with.
Other than pills from the doctors, gentle physical therapy such as swimming helps to alleviate the pain to the point were it is liveable, However, The only way of sorting it out permanently is surgery. :skin_up:

This is caused by over tightening of the muscles which compresses the skeletal structure which in turn traps the nerves.

The Alexander technique could address this problem without recourse to surgery.

But this is skill the sufferer has to learn the Alexander Technique is not a passive therapy but a skill that you learn. The correct implementation of the AT reduces excess muscular tension and will eventually realign the whole psychophysical organism. Its not cheap as many lessons may be needed but it does work.

Your GP relative may have heard of
Back pain study
Significant long-term benefit from
Alexander Technique lessons for
low back pain has been demonstrated
by a major study published by the
British Medical Journal
on 20th August 2008

good luck

It is most common that people with PN are diagnosed with chronic or non-bacterial prostatitis, prostadynia, vulvodynia, vestibulitis, interstitial cystitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, proctalgia, proctalgia fugax, orchialgia, hemorrhoids, coccydynia, piriformis syndromes, anorectal neuralgia, pelvic contracture syndrome/pelvic congestion, ischial bursitis, or levator ani syndrome. All of these above disorders can "mimic" Pudendal neuralgia symptoms or actually be caused by pudendal neuropathy.
