    Talking about pain on certain sides has me thinking of PNE. I have this disorder on my brain. I just ran across this post. I know close to nothing about pelvic floor therapy. I am slowly learning.

    Well Wishes to you!

    I also have some journals of my journeys, past and some present at: and

    Most of my Journaling now is currently on Facebook. These are old and my ICN Patient story is very old and outdated.

      The urologist wanted to hold off on the cystoscope all this time since I had not bleeding or previous history of a UTI (which the second opinion gyno was shocked about). Oh well, at least it is getting done soon (and I'm terrified!)

      Thanks again!
      I was scared about the cystoscopy, but I had to have 2 and found they were virtually painless. Both Doctor's used lots of Lidocain to numb me up. To be honest, I had more issues with the Urodynamics causing my bladder to spasm painfully. But that was just me! I too have had to give up exercise and it bothers me alot. I wasn't a runner like you, but I was serious about getting fit and had been doing Pilates and/or kickboxing 5 days a week for 6 months. I can do very ilttle now due to all of my pain. Just walking around the grocery store leaves me in terrible pain! I have Pelvic floor dysfunction as well as IC. Have you looked into that? I am able to (after almost a year) figure out whether my pain is IC related or PFD related most of the time. The PFD pain in my side and back and legs and pelvis and vagina usually comes with physical activity. Even lifting laundry baskets can bring it on now. UHG! I need to find a physical therapist within driving distance to finally get this under control!
      I hope you get some relief and answers soon!
      Good luck!
