I really have to think about what to do here. I feel like if I don’t try the block to at least confirm pn how can I know what road to take?
I wish you the best in your journey. This is the scariest thing I have ever bee thru. I have never heard of such a handicapping nerve problem.
I hope things get better for you and that you get answers .
Please keep in touch.
Did your dr tell u that is why your blocks didn’t work was because of spinal wind up? Why wouldn’t they have told u that was a possibility before they did the blocks? I have never heard of that before . If the longer u go with pain lessens the possibility of a block giving positive effects shouldn’t we have them sooner rather than later. I’m leaning towards having them but now and more fearful than ever. The whole point is to get that steroid in there to try to get the nerve healed right?
Too much to think about and too many variables.
Hope you had a good day
I’ve did try some anti convulsants gabapentin and amitripyline it did not do anything. I have had a few chiropractor Appts focusing in my sacrum and Lower back. Those seem to help with the burning.
I worry that if I don’t do the blocks the nerve damage will escalate and then what? I’ve noticed that when I use prep. H I feel better also but I think there is a small amount of anesthia in there and that’s helpful?
My chiro thinks it’s the sensory part of my nerve that is irritated/inflamed. How does that ever heal if I don’t use steroid injection?
I feel like My symptoms are manageable because I stand 90 percent of my work day.
I am confused and frustrated because I had made up my mind to have the blocks because I felt that would give me the best shot at healing the nerve. I can handle the pain I have now but I can’t handle anymore. How long have you been dealing with this and how long after it started did you have your blocks? I’m afraid of making things worse more than anything. Have you had contact with people that have had good results with the blocks.
Thanks for getting back to. This started about 2 years ago. During my walking exercising I would notice a pain in my pubic area. I am prone to yeast infections so thought I was getting one. Tests came back negative numerous times. Mt obeying referred me to a pain management dr that told me I have pelvic wall dysfunction. I did pt for at least 6 months then turned to acupunture. The acupuncture seemed to help somewhat when I asked her to start treating me like I had pudendal nerve issues not pelvic wall dysfunction. Then I started considering nerve block. Went for a consult and they acted like it would be no problem. If u want one have one. Never did they say it could get worse nor did they mention anything negative about it. Of course I read online the negatives but I’m exhausted from seeing so many doctors I feel like I cannot describe my symptoms anymore or I’ll throw up . I have a lot of butt pain, burning in my vulva uthera and up my butt crack, inner and outer thigh. When I read other peoples posts I wonder do i really have pudendal problems because I can work , rarely sit down at work, but I can function. Is this going to get worse as time goes on?
I live in Wisconsin about 30 minutes from the Minnesota border. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated. I want to try the block but am scared to death. Like I said I can function now and can do things with my family. I have no bathroom issues at all. Will a block bring that on or do I not have pudendal problems.
Thanks again for replying and listening
I’ve never heard of spinal cord wind up? That terrifies me. So would anyone recommend a pudendal nerve block? The doctors seem to be so flip about them. If you want one then have one they say. If there are so many negatives involved why wouldn’t they be more cautious in their recommendations. There have to be people out there with positive results? I’m really torn on having one. If a person waits too long to try it then the spinal cord wind up comes into play but if you don’t have one you don’t give the nerve the opportunity to have the steroid possibly heal that nerve? Any advice?
So,the pudendal blocks did nothing but make your symptoms worse? Sorry, but how long have you had this problem? I’m going on year 2 and am thinking of having the nerve blocks but have huge concerns. I cannot imagine things getting worse. Opinion? How are you feeling now? Take care
