Problems with edema and matress/ chair?

Postby OrioleMag » Thu Aug 24, 2017 3:46 pm

Hi guys. I have a job where I have to sit a lot, so pudental nerve pain is getting worse and worse. i changed the chair (it was expensive as hell), but it's okay now. I also changed the mattress to memory foam.
But, with that mattress I noticed that I have a bump on my lower back, so I went to doctor and he said it's sacral edema. Did anybody meet with that? Is it possible that I got it because of new mattress? I thought it would be better for my pain to sleep on something soft, not the other way around. Any thoughts?

Never heard of that happening before. It's hard to imagine how a soft mattress could cause that problem unless maybe it doesn't give you enough spine support somehow leading to bad alignment that puts pressure on the sacrum. Maybe a manual therapist could check your alignment for you.

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.
