Hii: this is my 1st post. My Dr. has recommended Botox injections for my pelvic pain. I have an appt. to discuss this with an Ob/Gyn that does such injections. I would love to hear from Anyone with any experience with such a procedure: pro or con both,of course. Sounds dangerous. Ironically, I've worked & studied in the Holistic medical field most of my life. (I'm 61) Thanks! deborahalice

Hi Deborah & welcome to the chronic pain forum. Yes, we have had some members in the past that has had success with Botox for this problem. If you will use our search feature here at the forum & type in Botox injections for pelvic pain you should be able to pull those posts up. The Botox is quite safe & appears to be successful when everything else fails, so I would really give this a try if the pain you are having is severe enough.

Let us know what you decide & keep us posted on how you are doing. Take care......

I have no personal experience with botox so I will just say Welcome and hope you find a solution. I've found many helpful people on this site.
Posterior C3 - C7 laminectomy and fusion 2 rods and 10 screws, local bone graft from surgery site-lamina and other bony tissue.
Knee and foot surgery
Cataract surgery x2. Felt that I was looking through water post-op. Told it is floaters that I probably had before the surgery and just could not see. I disagree. It's very irritating, worse in bright light. Thankful for my husband of over 40 years

What are your symptoms? There is a very direct link between anxiety and a variety of pelvic urogential issues.

I have suffered from chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain and pelvic floor dysfunction for 6 years. There were some physical reasons that contributed BUT anxiety is now the MAJOR contributor to my issues.

I am not a med pro but I can give you some feedback guidance. I have been thru the ringer with drs, antibiotics, urologists etc...

Currently I am taking Lexapro to help with anxiety and its helping and I am doing pelvic floor PT to help my pelvic floor dysfunction. Where do you live? You should be able to find a pelvic floor PT specialist to help you resolve issues. Look into book called "Headache in the Pelvis"Headache or "Heal Pelvic Pain" by Amy Stein Heal-Pelvic-Pain-Strengthening-Incontinence.

Finding these books and understanding the cause of my issues and getting on SSRIs saved my life. My issues got bad.

Reach out I;m happy to help

DeepSea, I have removed the links on where to purchase the books you have mentioned. I see that you are new to Healing Well & I urge to read the forum rules. Advertising or promoting a website to purchase items from is against the forum rules & considered spam. Thanks.
