Hi, I am new here and just wanted to introduce myself. I am a member of the Chronic Pelvic Pain: the Mind/Body Connection facebook group and have heard a lot about this forum so I decided to join! Wow, I did not know there was so much information regarding TMS. I have felt very alone in this painful journey; no one around me understands what it is like to live with pain every day. I want to get better but my negative thinking has gotten the best of me. I know that I must be more positive but I feel defeated most of the time. My pelvic pain started after delivering my daughter (Feb 5, 2014) via C-section. A few days later I started having pain with bowel movements and sitting pain. I have done several months of physical therapy, MRI, botox, been to several doctors but no one could find a reason for my pain. My physical therapist did mention that my muscles were a little tight but not enough to be causing me all this pain. The last pelvic pain specialist basically said that I have neuropathy which is a disease in the nervous system (brain sending the wrong signals). I have tried medication as well with no results. I have sitting/ pressure pain in the sacral area, both butt cheeks, back and now front of my thighs. Some days, my whole body seems sensitive. It hurts to sit and lay down so there is no comfortable position for me to rest. This month, my arms started "burning". A little on my background, in 2009 after delivering my son via C-section, I had a hemmeroidectomy which was very painful and traumatic surgery for me. Fast forward to 2014, my pain began in the rectal area. I don't know if there is any connection or if it is just a coincidence. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
