My PCP said that she can feel the adhesions when she presses on my pelvic area and when she pressed I could feel a pulling and burning sensation a couple of inches away from where she was pushing. She told me to take a pain pill each night and wait an hour then work on a different section of my pelvic area and press down, pull against the direction it wants to go and hold until I feel the other end of the pulling release. Anyone else hear of that? I told her I was afraid that I would tear something inside if I did that but she said it shouldnt cause any problems.
This has been done twice by doc and it took a couple of days for the burning searing pain to subside but when I press in the area again it still feels like it is pulling. I am wondering if she is telling me this as a "placebo" type of treatment, trying to see if I "feel better" afterwards or not.
It hasnt helped but truth to tell I havent been doing it on my own because I am afraid of doing damage and of the pain it causes. Any suggestions?
I am not doing it. I am not seeing an endo specialist with 22 years experience and will see her again tuesday to go over test results. I am not going to mess around because I dont know what I am doing and I am too afraid of doing damage inside.
That sounds like a good approach. I doubt I would try it on myself, either, esp if it caused lasting pain. Sometimes you have to trust your judgement on these things. I would wonder how someone knows they are actually breaking up adhesions rather than ripping or pulling a normal structure, with no training. Good luck with your test results.
I would be so leery of that it wouldn't be funny. Like greyown says, how do you know what exactly you are doing? I could just see explaining this one to an ER doc and then them looking at you like you are nuts. There are PT and massage therapists who can do massages but if it hurts, say no thanks. Glad to see you are getting a second opinion. Good luck
