Hi everyone, I need support/advice/reassurance. Sorry for my English, i'm not a native speaker, but I'll try my best. It's gonna be a long story I guess. I would like to know if my symptoms might be linked to TMS. So, on the 3rd of March this year I went to the doctor to get an IUD placed in my uterus. I was extremely nervous and scared and started to shake because of anxiety during the placement. It hurt like hell and I was crying. A few days before the placement I started to feel like I was developing a UTI. The doctor gave me antibiotics but it didn't do anything. Now I think this was a sign of muscle tension in the pelvic floor because I got scared of the placement of the UTI. After the placement I kept experiencing a lot of pain in the uterus and the pelvic area. I even had to go to the emergency doctor at night because they thought the IUD perforated my uterus. This wasn't the case after all. But it gave me a lot of anxiety. I also had to go to the gynaecologist the next day to check if the IUD was placed correctly. The gynaecologist told me everything looked perfect. That reassured me a little but everything kept hurting. After two days I started to feel weird sensations in my vagina and around my pubic bone. It felt a little aroused and I felt like I needed to orgasm to make it go away. It made me very nervous since I was not mentally aroused, I wasn't mentally horny, only between the legs. So i tried oral sex with my boyfriend since I was not allowed to have actual sex yet because of the recent placement of the IUD. It didn't help at all and it actually made it worse. My left leg also started to feel numb and tingly. I could touch the bottom of my left foot and feel it in my vagina. So this is when all the anxiety started. I panicked because I thought there was something wrong with my nerves, I thought the doctor pinched a nerve during the placement and damaged it. My left leg started to have cold flushes and I felt muscle weakness. Besides the genital arousal I also started to feel like I had a UTI again. I had to pee all the time and my bladder burned. I did two tests, but they were negative. I didn't have a UTI. I also started to feel something like a pressure around the pubic bone, the vagina, the perineum, and around the anus. It feels like I have to go to the bathroom and something has to come out, but it also feels like I have to put in something to release the pressure (?!). I'm really worried that I have PGAD. Within a period of 3,5 weeks I experienced 3 days of crazy genital arousal. I couldn't help but masturbate. I HAD to, and some days more than once. On the other days I also feel a little arousal sometimes, but not as much as on these 3 days. I do feel pelvic pain/pressure, burning and tingling sensations and have to pee a lot on those other days. Masturbating doesn't make the feeling go away and now I'm scared of having sex with my boyfriend and having an orgasm because I fear it will make it worse or it won't give me much pleasure. My doctor thinks I overactively tensed my pelvic floor during the placement of the IUD and that I'm now experiencing these weird symptoms because of muscle tension. She thinks the ischiadic nerve is irritated (since I had the tingling and numb left leg and since I could feel that down to my foot). She also thinks that a tight pelvic floor is the cause of the pressure and arousal. I have to admit that my symptoms started to subside a little after I got more and more reassurance, but today I'm having a flare and I had to masturbate twice to feel better, but it didn't make me feel better. Also my period started today and I think this might be of influence. Could this be PGAD caused by anxiety and stress (TMS)? I also experience a lot of stress because next week I have to move to another house, I experience a lot of work pressure and I suffer from general anxiety and mild depression. The coronacrisis isn't helping either. Can someone please give me advice or some calming words?
