Severe pelvic pain

In addition to adhesion pain, I was recently diagnosed by a chronic pelvic pain specialist with pelvic floor myofascial pain and pubic bone inflammation that she seems to think is contributing to my pain as well. In addition to increasing the meds I was already on, she is sending me to a physical therapist for the pelvic floor thing---what exactly do they do? I don't go til the 24th and I am just wondering what to expect. She said that it should help a lot with pain from that, but that there really isn't anything she can do about the adhesion pain. I have had adhesion pain in between surgeries to remove them and after this last one. For 4 weeks this time I was pain free...I find it hard to believe that this pelvic floor problem can come and go like that with the adhesion problems, so I am also second guessing whether or not I am having pain at all from this problem and it is just adhesions. But if you could tell me sort of what they do I would appreciate it.
I am sorry you have been through so much---if you read our sig lines, you can see you are not alone.
I am glad you are here.

Well, PT is not what i thought it would be...if anyone out there has been through pelvic floor rehab and has gone to PT for anything else, knee, shoulder, is not the same..
at least mine isn't. so far they have determined that my pelvic muscles are in a tight spasm that will not relax (whats new) my life is stressful:-) anyway, then they try to loosen those muscles internally...yes, you think going to the gyno is fun, this is even better
then, i was tested with a device that reminds you of a hard plastic tampon that tells you what scale you are on for your muscle strength and then it tells you how tight your muscle walls are...
So, i really have not seen anything good about the time i have gone yet...hopefully in time, i might see something good out of these.
Hope yours is better!!

NO WAY! You mean they have to do internal stuff too? Well why not, everyone and their brother have seen my "stuff" so why not a few other people...LOL
I am not looking forward to this experience at all since anything in my vagina hurts like a b****!
Thanks for letting me know. I will let you know how mine goes on the 24th.

hi marian
just checking in tosee how things went. Your a riot
i have had to postpone my visits for about 2 weeks. I have gone back to work and and can't go until i get out of training.
I have talked to my dr again because of these things that have started going on. I have been having these attacks or feelings where i feel my esophagus is being pulled like you feel when you get really hungry. So, it got worse and she ask me to do this test called a Saliva test. There were these questions that I had to answer on things that may be going on and i didn't realize i had several things happening i really didn't know was related to the hysterectomy. I knew i was suffering from insomnia, but there were others too. Have you had other things going on or anyone else took this test before?

I won't bore you with all the details here, you can read my experience under the post "good luck at your appt marian".
I have never heard of a Saliva test...what is it? If you are in meno, whether naturally or surgically, can cause many many problems. One thing I just found out a few months ago was joint pain is a meno symptom. What kind of questions did they ask?

A saliva test is usually given to check hormone levels and/or the adrenals. I've had my hormones tested via saliva and via bloodwork. There are pros and cons to each. If you're having problems, the test certainly won't hurt. Do let us know what the doc is testing for and the results when you get get them.

HI Ladies!
Thanks for the info...I had worked in the medical field for 8 years and also am a EMT, but never heard of that test until now...anyway, the questions ask you to rate your symptoms..1-4
1(little) 4(severe)
like, increased stress, insomnia, libido prob, anxiety, mood swings, crying, hot flashes, aches and pains, weight gain in hips and stomach, decrease in muscle sizes, swelling, ....there were about 50 things it ask. I didn't know there could be so many things that was related. (just the norm you hear about all the time) That is how I started putting things together.
They said it would take about a week. So I may know something by the end of the week. [color=orange]
They have a website you can go to and it may list those questions. It might be a good thing to see.
