Nerve blocks helped my symptoms a bit for a few hours. There may be people who have gotten significant long term relief from nerve blocks -- I just haven't met very many of them over 12 years of moderating the forum.

In answer to your question about bowel movements triggering symptoms the answer is "yes" for me, and other people I have known say the same thing.

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.

Anyone else feel crazy when it comes to these symptoms? I know deep down I'm not, mainly because of these forums and finally finding a good doctor. but I often wonder if it's all in my head and what's wrong with me.

Well, I worried about that before I had a diagnosis and especially when my neurologist suggested that I see a psychiatrist, but now that I'm essentially cured from PGAD, it's obvious that it wasn't in my head. Also, after communicating with a number of different physicians on the topic, they have confirmed that PGAD seems to be associated with pudendal neuralgia in many cases.
