Pain is less after BM

Postby MLB » Thu Jul 20, 2017 12:39 am


This is my first post. One of the symptoms of PN & PNE is often reported as increased pain after having a BM. I actually feel better after having a BM. I have had Left sided pudendal pain for about 20 years. I was diagnosed so long ago that PN & PNE was not even considered a separate diagnosis so I was told I had vulvodynia. Currently on Elavil with some relief but I cannot sit without flaring my pain. I have had PT, other meds etc so I am pretty sure I have neuropathic pain. Does anyone else have less pain after a BM?

MLB, I was the opposite, I guess, because I had more pain after BM's because it would make the pelvic floor muscles go into spasm. But I can see how emptying the rectum could relieve pressure on the nerve for some people. One thing about PN/PNE is that no 2 people are exactly alike in their symptoms.

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 have pain if I am unable to have a BM or after I have A BM, so either is bad:(
