    It happens to a lot of us. It is rather difficult to talk about though. I still havent gotten the guts to tell my GP, but he can't help me anyways, so why should I bother? I should really see a urogyn about this.

    For me, it started along with my IC symptoms, both when I first got IC, and now (after my remission). So for me, I don't think it is PFD, because my body didn't have any reason to clench its pelvic floor muscles. Unless it was caused by stress. I suppose that's possible, but I think I would know if I was clenching my muscles.

    I think the sensations are caused by residual pain from my bladder, travelling down south. It literally feels like my bladder has dropped and is pushing down on my vagina ALL THE TIME, it is so distracting. Sometimes my bladder feels really good, almost normal, but this never goes away.
    Then once in a while I feel like a needle is going through my clitoris or vagina. It can be so bad it makes me ghasp, and nearly scream.

    For some reason though, my clitoral pain gets worse right after I void. It is a terrible shooting pain like I have been kicked very hard in the crotch by a football player. Does anyone else have this happen? It really makes me not want to void, because it is equally as bad as the bladder pain.

    I am comfortable taking with my urogyn about anything. I figure if he hasn't heard it he needs to learn about it. But please don't be embarrassed to ask here.

    yogajo,
    I clench those muscles as well... I hope I'll be able to find treatment that works as well as it did for you. I am so envious about the jeans...I broke down this week and put my jeans away and bought maternity jeans. The pain with "real" pants is just too much right now.

    no way..do not be embarrassed!! this is what we are all here for. I had the same thing. It turned out that from pfd my pudendal nerve (I think that is how you spell it) was inflamed and entrapped. My doc made me notice as well that when I was in pain I also tendeded to clench my upper leg muscles and pelvic muscles making it all worse. Soooo... I had PT and get homeopathic injections in the muscles both externally and internally. I am doing much better ever can wear jeans without a problem.

    I know it sounds totally stupid, but I suggest that you check with a physical therapist who is in a hospital based therapy clinic. When my husband needed physical therapy for his back, he first went to an independent therapy clinic and his insurance ran out of therapy benefits.

    Then he had surgery and needed more therapy so, thinking we would just have to bite the bullet and pay for it, we checked with a clinic near us, which just happens to be an outreach program for a local hospital. We were advised that because they are hospital-connected, our insurance would cover it totally. All our physician had to do was make the referral once.

    I had that happen to me as well Bea - usually when my bladder was seriously misbehaving, lol. I feel it's also due to the fact there are so many nerves in the vicinity, that it "spills" over from one area etc. I found that a cold pack really helped out a lot, made me a lot more comfortable when it was driving me crazy!! (I even used to use a frozen water bottle that I kept just in case it happend, then I'd slip it into an old sock so it wasn't so harsh)

    And like Tig said - never be embarrassed about asking anything around here! You'd be amazed at the things we've chatted about!

    I actually was diagnosed almost a year ago with PFD.. my stupid insurance.. starts phys. therapy.. gives me four sessions and takes a month to approve another few.. so anytime the muscles start getting stretched a bit I go back to my old self.. I hate this.. I do notice if I take forget my valium the pain there is worse.. I just hate it, and wish there was something to get rid of it.. I heard it can be from PFD.. but I didnt think to this extreme.

    I also just saw my gyn and nothing else is wrong there.. ug... this really sucks...

    thanks ladies

    Bea, I have that as well. There are days it is almost unbearable, at least before I had medicine and used ice packs/heating pads. My Ob/Gyn gave me a topical numbing ointment. I was just "officially" diagnosed with pelvic floor dysfunction (which I was told can cause vaginal and clitoral pain) and am looking for a PFD physical therapist to start treatment. You may want to get checked for some of the vaginal diseases common for icer's. I do not have those and thus know very little about them, but I am sure someone more knowledgeable will chime in here soon! (I think they are vistibular vaginitis;vulvadyna?)
    Hope you can get some relief soon!

    hi be.. first off never ever feel embarresed to ask anything. I told my gyn and my uro about this, I have only had this happen a few times, but that was too many. I do not have VV and no stds. They chalked it up as ic/pfd. They couldn't find anything wrong.
    I suggest you make an appt with your gyn.
