I was doing so well The pain in my pubic bone, back and coccys was actually getting better Slowly but it wasn’t agony like before Life was changing Then Wham My vulva starts feeling swollen and abit sore Now this is where my chronic pain journey began It’s incredibly traumatic to remember this pain It’s such a familiar feeling It only went when I had my babies (and was replaced by back etc) 50% of the time I can tell myself it’s tms It’s angry at me for winning and it’s using an old pathway to distract me But the other part of me is telling myself it’s because I’m doing so much more activity and wearing pants again sometimes that it’s creating the swelling and pain down below! I’m sat here crying This might be the thing that wins It’s the memories of how this pain changed my life and it just keeps haunting me And I’m panicked, scared and I feel sick to my stomach Is this tms? Can it cause a sensation of swelling or just ‘noticing it’ constantly on my mind and it hasn’t been for nearly two years I don’t know what to do! Feeing myself trying to rest and lie down because I was once told it was gravity causing the swelling and uncompfortable feeling down below Has anyone been through something similar! ?
