I tried everything: 8 different specialists (urologists, gynecologists, uro-gynecologists), chinese medicine, sending a urine sample to the USA for analysis, long-term antibiotics, laproscopic surgery, and more. I heard many different diagnoses from interstitial cystitis to “its in your head”. I couldn’t sleep for more than an hour at a time because my bladder pain would wake me up. I was in a very, very dark place and felt hopeless.
I had been suffering from pelvic pain for about two years when I found my pelvic health physiotherapist. It’s hard to put into words how thankful I feel for her and the work that she, and others, do in pelvic health. It gave me my life back. She treated my physical symptoms, while also helping me understand the emotional and mental connection to my physical pain. The physiotherapy treated the underlying cause of my symptoms, so that I am pain- and disorder-free.
