Pudendal Neuralgia



Pudendal neuralgia often occurs when pelvic floor muscles are very tight, resulting in the compression of nerves.  Got sciatica? Sharp pain that pulses down your leg? Pins and needles? Areas of numbness? Some women struggle with persistent genital arousal sensation (PGAD) which causes a painful arousal sensation. Pudendal neuralgia treatment begins with finding the location of the nerve compression, then releasing those muscles with physical therapy and, perhaps, calming irritated nerves with topical lidocaine creams and/or medications. 

Here are some OTC products that may help you as you seek to reduce your pain and restore muscle health.  

Start with your own education.  Breaking Through Chronic Pelvic Pain will help you understand where the muscles, bones and nerves are located to help you understand where you entrapment might be occurring and what structures are involved.  


Breaking Through Chronic Pelvic Pain 

Glass Wands

Many patients receive instruction on internal pelvic floor massage through the use of a glass wind. 



Heat and Cold Therapy

Heat and/or cold therapy can be vital during flares. For some patients, heat feels the most comfortable because it can help to relax muscles. But, when nerves are more sensitive, an ice pack feels the most comfortable. 

 
Pain Relief

Some OTC supplements and/or topical products may also help reduce pain and discomfort. Palmitoylethanolamide (PEA) has been found to reduce both IC, sciatica pain in several research studies.
