Hi all, I’m new to this site and wanted a bit of advice if possible. I’ve recently been experiencing a lot of pelvic pain. From what I can tell my symptoms match that of pudendal neuralgia. I had this once before in 2011 which lasted for about a year. I went to the doctors and they said it might be vulvodynia but in all honestly I could tell they didn’t really have any answers for me and I kind of just gave up and suffered with the pain. It eventually went away after about a year. Since then I’ve had lots of things wrong with me. Pins and needles in my arms and legs, dizziness, gastrointestinal issues, knee pain amongst others. All of these things have eventually gone away in the end but unfortunately I am now suffering with the same pelvic pain symptoms I experienced back in 2011/2012. I’ve always suffered with anxiety and have a lot of stress in my life due to my mum falling ill in 2010. She has a very serious long term health issue that causes me a great deal of stress. I’m almost certain that this is what causes my health problems but am really not sure if my latest symptoms are TMS or not. I haven’t been to the doctors partly because I feel so embarrassed that I’m always there! I feel as though I replace one health problem with the next. As soon as I get rid of something, new symptoms show up! I guess I just want a bit of advice as to whether this could be TMS or not. As I said, I always have background stress due to my mums illness but my recent symptoms returned after getting some more bad news (related to my mum) which is what I think may have triggered it. Any advice much appreciated!
