Yes mate most probably pelvic floor issue

If at all possible, I'd get to that PT. Many people benefit from PT who haven't even had an official diagnosis of PVD before going.

Would you say my symptoms fall under PVD? I don't always trust the doctors around here. While waiting to get a PT appointment scheduled, are there things I can do at home? Thanks.

I'm not a doctor, but it would make sense from my experience. Such a wide array of symptoms can be causes by pelvic floor dysfunction. That's why it's good to see someone who knows about CPPS. You could try some stretches. YouTube has plenty if you use keyword CPPS. Hope you improve!

Thank you. There are some pretty good stretches out there I'll try. My IBS is getting worse by the day. Off and on I have been able to semi relax my pelvic floor and it is the weirdest yet relaxing feeling. Hopefully PT will help when I can get around to it.

If you can't get into pt Best thing I can tell you it's to stretch daily. What you're describing is hypertonic pelvic floor. I had this also. Urge to urinate and frequency. Back pain and tailbone pain Constipation. Find a good pelvic floor stretches on youtube. Best one I've used is cure cpps on youtube. And stretch that pelvic for when you awake first thing and before bed for a minimum of 20 minutes each session. If you have ibs like me go keto that will help big time with ibs.

I have IBS. Did you also have trouble starting to pee and maintaining the flow?


StrawberryDramatic68

I did but deep Pelvic Stretches helped.

Awesome, thank you. How king did you have symptoms before seeking treatment? Did you do PT? How long until the stretched helped you? Thanks for the responses, it sounds like you and I have very similar experiences.

I had this issue since October 2019 By February I was sent to urology and urology then to pt. Not all pt know what they're doing. If they have you do kegals run out the door!!! The Stretches helped after the first time with my pelvic tightness and at month 3 things got better.
