so I've struggled on and off for quite awhile with pelvic pain. I had however been around 80 -85 improved since spring and doing a lot of activities again, even been under a very stressful legal situation that recently got resolved. I had some dips, but I'd bounce back in a couple days. I was fortunate to not be working for the summer, and I think that really helped me feel better. I was plenty busy just taking care of my family. And didn't feel overwhelmed trying to take care of my kids, mom, a house and a job. But I needed to go back to work full time this week. I was dreading this and did not want to go back yet at all. I was worried about being back to work before the kids went back to school and getting everything else done. I was worried about the chair they were giving me to sit in at my desk as I felt it was uncomfortable when I sat in it once last year. When I sit long at a desk in a hard chair pushing on the back of my legs, it seems to set off the pelvic floor pain in the past sometimes. Well 3 hours into my first day, the pain started returning much worse. So I got a different chair, but it seems too late because I've been getting worse ever since. Yesterday was the worst and the pain was as bad as it was when it started a could years ago. Terrible pain! The joy that finally returned in my life from feeling better just disappeared and is replaced with fear and and sadness. It's mostly left sided pelvic floor burning and pressure feeling. Last night My husband tried massaging my left hip area and back of my legs as massaging the pelvic floor where it really hurts only intensifies the pain! The areas he rubbed are insanely sensitive to Touch, and he feels the whole left side ( hip and leg) are so so tight, hard and even swollen thinking it's referring pain to the pelvic floor. Yes probably. But it's so ridiculous for a chair to cause this. And I know the anxiety and worry of going back to work ( and using that chair) is most likely to what caused this relapse. I'm thinking I am going to ask to go to part time. This pain is unbearable. I don't feel I can run the craziness of my life and work full time. I thought I could but apparently I can't. I feel like a failure over it but I cant be in this type of pain. I need to hear stories from others ( especially pelvic pain) and to get confidence that the actual physical tightness on the left side is referring pain and is all just tension causing this huge pelvic pain increase. It literally happened the day I returned to work. What else could it be, but the anxiety? Please someone help me feel hopeful again. Thanks.
