Pelvic Floor Myalgia
I have been healthy all of my life.....never went to a doctor....was a nationally ranked athlete, worked out all of the time, long time vegan, etc. I came down with pelvic floor dysfunction (the one from tight muscles, not loose ones). Basically, my pelvic floor muscles are tight, and cause me constant rectal pain, some vaginal pain, bowel issues and painful bladder syndrome. Because of all of this, I have become very anxious and depressed (and I was always a happy and positive person before this). I have been to a bio-identical hormone doctor and had my hormones tested....and yes, I still make some estrogen and I have no progesterone....which makes me estrogen dominant.
Do you have any suggestions for me? Doctors have really been of no help for me. I am in physical therapy...but it is a long road, even if you can get better or not. I suffer daily with pain, as well as fear/anxiety of not getting better and depression. Part of all of this is that I no longer can work out, so I have no outlet.
Thanks so much and I really enjoy your site.
