I haven't seen her but she trained under Dr. Hibner who is very experienced and has an excellent reputation, so that is promising.

PNE since 2002. Started from weightlifting. PNE surgery from Dr. Bautrant, Oct 2004. Pain now is usually a 0 and I can sit for hours on certain chairs. No longer take medication for PNE. Can work full time and do "The Firm" exercise program. 99% cured from PGAD. PNE surgery was right for me but it might not be for you. Do your research.

I am so happy to have found a Dr. close by. Even if it's not PN, I need to figure this out. Did your pain get worse toward the evening? Did the pain get worse as time passed?

It did get worse toward the evening and yes, it got worse as time went by. Eventually it sort of plateaued though and didn't get worse after that.

I saw Dr. Astashoo today. She was great. Spent a lot of time with me. She doesn't think it's pudendal nerve and is sending me to PT for pelvic floor therapy. She said the same symptoms can be so many things and that I need to quit googling it because I had a few anxiety attacks over the weekend and took clonazapam to get me through. Today I've had no symptons and she did a thorough check externally and internally. I think me being a nervous crazy person intensified things. Hopefully the PT will help (and she said I need to quit my HIT exercise program. I'll keep everyone posted. Sometimes anxiety can make you think the worst. Stay calm and one thing at a time. Thank you to Violet who is a huge asset to this page and for encouraging me to see the Dr before diagnosing myself

Hi Melly,

Glad to hear that you may not have PN and hopefully you will be able to get things under control with some PT. Were you able to find someone within reasonable traveling distance?

The distance for pelvic PT is 45 minute drive but I'm willing to do what it takes to be pain free. Do you think pelvic floor dysfunction can cause underwear to be bothersome?

I think so because if you have pelvic floor dysfunction with muscles that are tense and in spasm, the pudendal nerve running between those muscles can be irritated by the tense muscles and that can cause you to be hypersensitive to underwear.
