I have had chronic pain for 5 years and wondering if it could be due to a hidden hernia. I have seen countless doctors from gynecologists, to urologists, alternative therapies, etc. with no confirmed diagnosis or relief. Pudendal neuralgia was suspected, but a pudendal nerve block did not relieve symptoms.
My symptoms are:
-left sided only
-pain at labia majora
-burning, aching, raw
-worse with prolonged sitting or standing
-feeling of pressure/fullness in pelvic floor
-feeling of pressure on bladder
-pain used to be relieved upon lying down, but is constant now
-pain worse with lifting heavy objects, pulling open a heavy door, bending down
-only thing that helps is ice and amitriptyline (Elavil)
-unable to wear tight pants
I have not had any surgeries in the past. My brother was born with a hernia and my maternal grandmother had one also.
