Pelvic Instability/Pain Structural or TMS?

    I had my daughter 9 months ago and had a very painful birth with a long time pushing( 3 hours). For two weeks after I had a ton of pain at my pubic bone, left hip, and inner groins and could barely walk (I had a really weird gait where I had to swing my left leg up and over). I went to the doc and was diagnosed with pubic symphysis dysfunction as well as Pelvic floor dysfunction (hypertonic).
    After several months of healing, chiropractor adjustments, PT, and acupuncture, I'm now a bit better but according to my chiropractor I just "keep coming out" of alignment. I have a rotated pelvis that doesn't seem to want to stay in the correct place. This causes SI, tailbone, and hip pain, along with some lingering pubic bone pain. The most worrisome symptom is the feeling that my left leg isn't correctly attached in the hip socket. It feels weak and unstable, and like it isn't in the correct place. I guess I'm just feeling lost and wondering if it could be TMS again somehow piggy-backing onto an old structural injury (shouldn't this be better by 9 months?!) I know TMS causes pain symptoms but can it cause a leg feeling out of place?

    Hello Clairerub and welcome to the forum. Saw some new medical terms in your post and have learned over the years that different specialists use different terms for similar ailments (or set of symptoms)
    Have you heard of a specialty called "pelvic floor specialists?" Another is "Uro-gynocologist." Can't guess if your condition is TMS related but lingering and worrisome pain might be playing a part physically.
    Congratulations on the birth of your daughter!
