in 2020 I was finally diagnosed with endometriosis. It took 7 years of going to different doctors who all told me I was faking it. Now the doctor that diagnosed me isn't really doing anything to help with the pain. I went to a new doctor who also diagnosed me with Vulvodynia and she suspects I also have Lichen Sclerosus. Does anyone have any advice on how to deal with the pain? I'm currently on multiple medications to help with the pain, but I was wondering if there were any more ways to treat it?
Chronic Generalized pain
Pelvic Floor Therapy is a non-invasive way to treat pelvic pain. I went to pelvic floor therapy for a little over a year (stopped due to insurance) and it honestly helped a lot. It helps target things like tense pelvic muscles, vulvodynia, etc. Try a Google search and see if there are any around you!
I understand how frustrating it is living with pelvic pain. Honestly, even though I recommend this, it’s hardly a “cure” to the pain, just an additional tool in your toolbox to manage it. It’s especially beneficial though because physical therapy targets the muscles and recorrects them- rather than just masking with pain meds. Some nerve pain can’t be controlled with it, but it is still worth while for anyone with pelvic floor issues.
