Thanks for the goodwishes. I was reading your signature and noticed that you have chronic pelvic pain. Can I ask what (if any) kins of treatment have you tried. I also suffer from chronic pelvic pain. I was diagnosed from a great doctor who sent me for physical therapy for pelvic pain. The therapy was very painful, but it really helped me out a lot. I am not sure if we can post name of Doctors or hospitals on the forum. Let me know if you are interested and I can get the information to you.

Hi Hydrangea,

I've been dealing with chronic pelvic pain for several years now. My pain doctors aren't 100% sure what is causing the pain, but it appears I have several trigger points deep in the psoas muscle that they can't seem to "fix". I've had a couple injections, including one Botox, and I have another Botox scheduled in April. My pelvic physiotherapist has been unable to release the triggers and this is why my doctors had a hip MRI done, to see if there was something else causing the muscles to be out of whack. It turns out I have FAI - Femoralacetabular Impingement, which basically means the head of the femur doesn't fit into the hip socket properly and there are tears in the labrum as well. This could be causing my whole pelvis to be out of kilter, and so the muscles are all in spasm.

I'm waiting to see an orthopedic surgeon to see if surgery is the next step...and I'd probably have to have both hips done over time. We're hoping that this will clear up the pelvic pain, but I also have a lot of scar tissue from lots of surgeries, so I'll probably always have some pelvic pain.

I live in Canada, so I don't think a doctor or hospital name will be helpful, but I really appreciate you asking and thinking of me!!

MsBunky, I hope you get to feeling better, and it looks like your making some progress on finding out what is wrong, and causing your pain. It all takes time, and of course we want it done today. Let us know what the surgeon says when you go in to visit him.
