Pelvic Pain Support Network My Pudendal Neuralgia family continues to grow... I've just met this wonderful charity group all for raising awareness and, most importantly, existing to represent sufferers with pelvic pain. They are based in the UK but their efforts and voices span the world. So lovely to be associated with you guys! Thank you for the advocacy pelvic pain sufferers so need. Can you also talk to our Governments so that injured workers have their injuries recognised?

Chronic Pain Info group on Facebook

By |2017-12-11T09:42:20+00:00July 17th, 2012|About, Help, Personal, The pain|

Chronic Pain Info is a Facebook group/page. A place to come and learn, share, vent and meet other likeminded individuals who share similar health conditions and concerns. Rachata Brown wrote: How to understand us... people who are dealing with the pain. 1. People with chronic pain seem unreliable (we can’t count on ourselves). When feeling better we promise things (and mean it); when in serious pain, we may not even show up. 2. An action or situation may result in pain several hours later, or even the next day. Delayed pain is confusing to people who have never experienced it. 3. Pain can inhibit listening and other communication skills. It’s like having someone shouting at you, or trying to talk with a fire alarm going off in the room. The effect of pain on the mind can seem like attention deficit disorder. So you may have to repeat a request, or write things down for a person with chronic pain. Don’t take it personally, or think that they are stupid. 4. The senses can overload while in pain. For example, noises that wouldn’t normally bother you, seem too much. 5. Patience may seem short. We can’t wait in a long line; can’t wait for a long drawn out conversation.

The Pudendal Neuralgia Masters and Their Support for my Website

I can't adequately define the moment I was diagnosed, it's just too difficult to explain the 4.5 year scattered hunt that ended with a few seconds and just two words! Empathy and understanding however, are two words that do explain what I felt when seeking approval to use the research and names of the Pudendal Neuralgia Masters (as I like to call these specialists). Honestly, if words, thoughts and care from complete strangers could heal me I would have been healed twice over by now. These Masters really touched my heart (unfortunately not my stubborn pudendal nerve, but all in good time!). I wanted to share these comments, especially for anyone suffering with Pudendal Neuralgia as I feel its important that we all know who these incredible human beings are and that they are endlessly working towards our cure and international awareness every day. The other important thing is to know where they are.

ABC 1 Catalyst: The Trouble with Sex

ABC 1 Catalyst: The Trouble with Sex Yay for some recognition and acknowledgment!! Injury to this nerve can happen during childbirth or with lower back injury, or strenuous exercise. Australian based expert on the pudendal nerve is gynaecologist, Dr Thierry Vancaillie. Dr Thierry Vancaillie When they come to see us, they will talk about bowel dysfunction and bladder dysfunction. Maybe talk about pain within the course, but arousal problems, well, they'll leave that for last, if they'll talk about it.

We are dedicated to reducing the social and other barriers to living with chronic pain.We are a group of people who are tired of the way things are for people in pain. You may be feeling quite isolated and 'over it' and feel that no one really understands your experience. You might even feel that people don't believe you. Many people tell us about these experiences. Don't despair, you aren't crazy! And you aren't on your own either. Over the years many volunteers have strengthened us so that we can work towards greater community understanding about chronic pain...
