nerve entrapment

Hi, I'm sorry you are having nerve pain. Isn't it awful?! Then adding insult to injury is the doctor's disbelief! (I've been there too.)

Do you think it's your pudendal nerve? Which doctor is not believing you? The one who did the surgery?

Neurontin is what I take for the nerve pain and it's helping me quite a bit; with the added bonus of also helping with my hot flashes!

I have a really good medical abstract on pudendal nerve damage that I would be happy to send to you if you want. Perhaps if you take this (or fax it) to your doctor it will get his/her attention.

Best wishes

nerve entrapment

Nerve pain is indeed very real!!! I've been dealing with all kinds of issues and I am starting to believe that the nerve damage is the main cause of most of it. I did find a dear doctor who believes that most of my pain is from nerve damage. Unforunately there isn't a cure. But there are methods to deal with the pain.

nerve entrapment

for months before my hysterectomy Ihad this awful pain in my feet . Now initially I thought it was my shoes but i realised that nothig had changed of late

After my surgery even as I was waking up from the GA I realised thta the pain in my feet was gone.. how odd . My gp thinks that when they cut the adhesions to free some of my parts inside a trapped nerve may have got itself released .

nerve entrapment

If it hurts to sit, you should get consider getting evaluated for pudendal nerve entrapment. Sometimes steroids help shrink the inflammation, other times the nerve has to be surgically freed so it can heal. There is a lot of information about this at, as well as support from a lot of other women who have had this painful complication from gyn surgery.

nerve entrapment

Where is your pain? Mine is in my lower abdomen and down the inner part of my right leg. I had an appt. earlier this week at the pain clinic and the dr. said I have nerve entrapment also. He said mine is the Ilioinguial Nerve and he perscribed pain patches and Neurontin.

I just started the meds so I haven't really noticed a change yet but I am hopeful!

I hope you can find someone who can help you!

Take care!
