Hello, @Mask  I merged your two accounts. Here is your Introductions topic.

 

How long have you had a resurgence of PGAD? Did you take any drugs or alcohol before it got worse again?

Is the depression because of the pgad of in addition to the pgad?

hi, brassmonkey

depression is because of pgad

Because of the quick onset of the symptoms, the increased symptoms because of the bicycle and the depression being due to the pgad, it might be a good idea to get your prostate checked out.  I think it may have more to do with things than an ADWD 18 month wave.  Just an idea, but worth a shot.

I would stop riding your bike for a while. Walking is good exercise that can help your body to heal.

 

The normal course of recovery is very gradual but uneven, with bad periods and good periods we can waves and windows. Please do what you can to stay calm and not add to your symptoms with distress over them, you can make them worse.

Hi altostrata,

its very distressing for me i thought i had recovered from pgad as you know i was like healed from pgad for almost one year after one year of severe pgad ...i was looking forward in life to do things which matters but it (pgad) came back....i am again upset now and depressed...but lets see it might be possibly a wave triggered by riding bike....hope for the better...and please motivate me to go through this ....cathyfrench has also improved a lot i have been reading her posts and i also have been improved a lot these 2 years since it actually began....but this wave is awfull right now

It seems like my main problem is riding bike...this pgad started again as a result of riding bike ....when i ride one bike gets worse but as soon as i dont ride on bike for a while my pgad dont distrub me ....but bike is very importnt for me as all work and activity in daily life i have to do on bike.....if i dont ride on bike i cant do my work 😨but if i ride bike it will flare up pgad...this is so heartbreaking and distrubing.......any suggestions or any solution please ....

Hi Mask, I'm sorry I don't have any solutions or good advice right now but I understand your worries a lot, I'm also almost 2 years off ADs and have PGAD. I just wanted to to give you some comfort that you're not alone in this even though it feels very isolating. I think the fact you almost had a year of being PGAD-free is a really good sign, sounds like a huge window which means you are healing and quite fast in my opinion too. :) It will come back but it's a really good sign that it's milder, it shows you are healing. One day, probably very soon for you, you will have the last wave and then a window/healed forever. Rest lots, keep distracted with things that make you happy, eat well and don't be hard on yourself. When I'm in a wave I write a lot, usually my feelings or things that make me happy, I think it's therapeutic so maybe it'll help you too. Best of luck!

Hi dear Rbvdk,

yes its true i was healed completely from pgad for almost one year...by the way are you male or female ...lets see how long it goes...and again i am not feeling as bad as before when it first begun...but still slight sensations in the private parts...and this gets much worse specially when i am riding on a bike.... i guess its similar like post acute withdrawal maybe ....

to everyone,

Never use antidepressants or sleeping pill unless it is the last option ....i foolishly tried many ads but i didnt get any response from any ads and at the end it gave me pgad...rather then doing some good for me these ads worsen so its been 2 year i have given up on ads....never ever use ads drug....

Hi Mask,

 

I'm not an expert but from all the stories i've read on SA, there is only one certainty in this process  : absolutly nobody can predict the time healing takes, so nobody can tell you how long you'll have waves and Windows.

 

However the fact that you had a few months Window sounds like a very good sign : more Windows are coming.

 

Best wishes

Hi, I'm female. It's a really good sign you're not feeling as bad as before! Maybe you should check out some pelvic floor relaxation techniques? I hear a lot of people who get pgad from withdrawals also end up with a tight pelvic floor (probably from all the stress of withdrawing) and this can come and go too from what I've heard from those who are going through/have gone through it. Depending on where you are, you can get pelvic floor physio therapists who can check it and help it too. 

 

Bikes are one of the most irritating things for your pudendal nerve (that's the thing that gets irritated when you have a tight pelvic floor too and is responsible for arousal feelings if I remember right) so even though your pgad is caused by withdrawals, if anything irritates that nerve then it's going to make the pgad irritated too.

Rbvdk,

 i had this kind of pelvic floor issue along with pgad at the early stages of my wd from ads...but all these problem dissapeared for a while and i started to feel better but now its back....maybe what i think is that these all issues are related to ad withdrawal....and not genuine problems i guess....because i had all these types of pain in my early time of withdrawal.....

Hi, search for Pelvic Floor Physio nearby to you. If you're unable to find one go to the doctor and ask them to refer you to somewhere that has it.

Good luck!

Rbvdk...

what i think is that the pelvic and genitals pains and uncomfortablity is all related to pgad...because when my wd was in early stages like when i withdrew from ads in the begining my pain was worst in the pelvic area and as the time passes pain subsided and all the pgad sypmtoms which i felt dissapeared...so i think these all pains are part of pgad....i think you must read the story of cathyfrench on this forum she was also suffering from pgad and now she is good her pgad is gone according to her....she also felt the same pain from pgad and after 2 and half years of withdrawal she is well and good....so i believe this will pass....and for me it dissapeared but now its back but not strong as before....i think that i am going from process of waves and windows....

I wanted to tell everyone that some 4 years ago i was suffering from restless leg syndrome  also due to antidepressants....i was very panicked at that point of time as i am today regarding pgad...i felt very uncomfortablity need to move legs and pains in legs similar to pgad....i was worried when i had restless legs i thought it would not go away it was like urge to move your legs means your legs are not at rest always felt the pain in the legs at that point of time it was very hard for me to keep my legs still..but now i am ok i dont feel any restless legs my legs are perfectly fine now.....my restless legs syndrome was similar to pgad...but that passes on its own...so i belive (God willing) this shall too pass....the main thing  is to just stop ads drug....ads drug gave me restless leg syndrome but it has passed and now i have pgad due to ads which is mild ....but pgad and restless legs syndrome are all same .....i recovered from rls i hope i will recover from this pgad which is mild right now ....

Hi everyone,

i have read hopeful and cathyfrench stories and they are very motivational and hopeful stories...

Just like cathyfrench and hopeful my pgad was also neary gone after almost 2 years of antdepressants wd suffering,i felt normal and relaxed it was like you are normal,,no arousals,no pain in your private parts it was amazing feeling after suffering from pgad..the first year for me after wd from ads was very hard...my pgad was worse i was like hell...then after 1 year of withdrawal my pgad and other symptom started to get better and i became hopefull to the point that i got pgad free in recent months it was like almost 7 to 8 months free of pgad...so o thought yes i have done it i was very excited that i got out of pgad hell....i left this forum because i didnt feel any need to come on this forum but now again in recent days my pgad is back and i am very afraid of it and feeling anxious....people on this site are telling me this is wave and you will get ok but now my pgad is again getting stronger....and i am stressed and afraid...but i know it diminshed earlier and i hope it will go away completely soon....my prayers with everyone who is suffering from pgad as i can understand your pain...
