For example, you could have pudendal neuropathy. The main symptom of pudendal neuralgia (PN) and pudendal nerve entrapment (PNE) is pain in one or more of the areas innervated by the pudendal nerve or one of its branches. These areas include the rectum, anus, urethra, perineum, and genital area, but often pain is referred to nearby areas in the pelvis.
If your pelvic pain increases while sitting and is relieved by lying down then you should consider seeking an expert consultation with a pain management specialist. Treatment for this condition includes self-care, a nerve protection program, pudendal nerve block, and surgical decompression.
Another common condition is coccydynia or pain in the tailbone. Again, patient history and a physical examination will help with diagnosis. This condition can be treated by NSAIDS or special injections like ganglion nerve of impar block. This is a safe and easy procedure used to treat visceral, pelvic, genital, perineal and anal pain. A blockade of the ganglion of impar can decrease or even eliminate chronic pain originating from the perineum, distal rectum, anus, distal urethra, distal vagina and others.
