Girlstarr5,

Welcome to the board!

I'm sorry you are dealing w/ chronic pelvic pain... while not my worst pain, I do have some pelvic pain as well. I had a nerve block for it a few years back.

Anyway, I've never had the botox injections.... but I've definitely heard of it being done.

Until someone else comes along and posts... you can also search the chronic pain board - by going to the search function (upper right hand side) and putting in "botox chronic pelvic pain".... I did this and it pulled up several posts.

Take care... and I hope this works to decrease your pain! --Tina

Do you have a diagnosis? Have you had a lap to confirm/rule out endometriosis? I'm pretty sure botox is used when your pain is caused by pelvic floor muscle spasms. This can also be treated by physical therapy. Only one of the over a dozen doctors I've seen for my pain checked for pelvic floor problems. He was very thorough and checked me for everything.

My chronic pelvic pain is from endometriosis and adhesions so botox won't help.

I hope you find a solution.

Girlstarr,

I too wonder if you would share a little more of your history of pelvic pain. There are many things that cause pelvic pain, as others have shared. Mine is caused by endometriosis and adhesions, which have spread throughout my pelvis and glues bowel and bladder to my abdominal muscle wall. My organs are all glued to the abdominal wall stretching up to my diaphragm, and fused together and to my back as well. There is the possibility of nerve pain from back and or hip injuries as well as surgery or trauma. Pelvic pain could be caused by endometriosis, bladder issues, and many other things that I ca3n't remember at the moment.

I would get a second opinion on any procedure, injection, or treatment that makes you uncomfortable if you can. Pelvic pain can be difficult to find a cause or reason for, and had I gotten a second opinion, it might have saved me from the suffering I am going through now, or greatly diminished it.

Would you share a little more about your pelvic pain? Mine began when I was 14, and varied in intensity and length for years. When I was 27 it became bad, 28 severe, and now at 31 it is still with me.

I pray that you find a treatment that works well for you so that your pain can end. If you do get the botox injection, would you come back and share your experience with us? It may help another person who did not know that was a treatment option.

And welcome to healingwell!

Hi, I am new here. I am so sorry that you all have such pain. The past 3 days for me have been horrible. Does change in weather effect your pain? I have severe spinal stenosis, and neuropathy in both feet and legs, and now has him me in shoulder, arm and hands hurt so much. I am so happy to have found some people who care and understand. I was set to have Botox in my throat/voice box as I have spasmodic dysphonia but I opted out and IM glad I did.. Speaking is getting worse all the time. I never dreamed at 61 years young I would be locked in a pain prison. Thanks for listening.
