Pudendal Nerve Entrapment

cahadenccahaden Posts: 6
Anyone know about this? I am having severe female burning that may be caused by this. Further testing will tell I hope. I have been to gyno, urologist, urogyn and several other dr's. Not sure if I may need to see a neurologist? Ladies if you have and information on this issues I would appreciate it!


  • The pudendal nerve is a somatic nerve in the pelvic region which is a large branch of the sacral plexus, that innervates the external genitalia of both sexes. I often have pain in that "region", but only during "that" time.. and though it is not a common area for cramping or spasms it is quite painful. I'm thankful mine doesn't last long and that menopause is in my near future.

    I don't understand the burning,as I have never had that symptom, but yes.. whatever or whoever you need to see (as far as treating physicians go), I would. Maybe ask your PCP if you need to seek the care of a neurologist if this is chronic.
  • Sorry to hear. A Neurologist is probably the best one to give a diagnosis through testing. Having back pain also doesn't help. I posted something here before but I was unable to tolerate the EMG/nerve test only part of it so the Neurologist is still unsure of this diagnosis for me. I have more numbness than pain in the saddle and pelvic area. I saw another Neurologist last month but she was reluctant to do another EMG on me since I couldn't tolerate the first one and the Dr. isn't sure this is what I have. http://www.spine-health.com/forum/chronic-pain/pudendal-nerve-damage I hope you get some answers soon. Are you taking any nerve meds? Take care. Charry
