Mask: Pgad from antidepressants

Recommended Posts

Mask

Hi everyone

i am not having arousals anymore or may be they are very mild  right now but i have constant pains in my pelvis area sometimes mild sometime strong....and what i know is that these pelvic pains are only related to pgad...i dont  think any doctor or any physio therapist could sort it out....these pelvis pains i had it when i first withdrew from ads and then after 1 year it diminshes so i beleive this is all related to pgad....any suggestions or any advice please ??

They could also be from the amount of tension being held there when worrying about this.

 

I noticed that the pains/aches in my pelvis went when I was finally cleared of nasty diseases involving my bladder. I'd convinced myself of the worst problems.

 

I occasionally get the pains/aches now and again but they usually got when I conciously relax my pelvis.

Hi dear Boris

so what should be recomended for me either i have to wait for it so it could go away on its own or something else...for you kind information i had this pelvic pain and arousals earlier too but it went away...what could be best for me to do right now..wait or something else because my pelvic pain oly gets worse when i drive otherwise it dosent bother me....or maybe the pelvic area is bit sensitive right now thats way i am feeling like this...

I would recommend finding a pelvic floor physio therapist if you have that there? 

 

If not you have to try relax the pelvic floor as much as possible. I found stress and worrying was making mine worse. Also driving would also irritate it.

 

In the end I just had to let mine go and not worry about it. I was literally holding my worry there about the bladder symptoms. I've had this kind of thing before with strange aches, I can usually tell they are from stresses when the location moves about.

ok i will try go to hospital and have check up of my pelvic area but i dont think doctor of physiotherapy could treat it because its related to ads withdrawal...i have read cathyfrench story she mentioned i her post of visiting to the phyaiotherpaist doctor which prescribe her muscle relexant medicenes which didnt help her and the pelvic floor pain subsided itself and i also belivw it will go away on its own as it went away earlier for me i guess

Hi Mask,

 

Isaw your message on my thread. I am so sorry your PGAD came back after several months of remission.  My PGAD is now very mild. I have been off Sertraline for 30 months now but I still suffer from it when I am  stressed and Always in the late afternoon.  My PGAD is very mild now and for me what helped was seing a pelvic pain physiothrapist that relaxed my diaphragm, my bladder muscles and nerves and worked on my PSOAS. I still have mild PGAD when I am stressed because stress activate the sympathetic nervous system and as a result wakes up the pelvic nerve (the pudendal nerve). A physiotherapist can show you how to use belly breathing to stimulate your vagus nerve and this will quiet down your sympathetic nervous system.  The thing is really to avoid anger, anxiety and stress. Also I see a psyhcologist to help me with my personnal issues. It is important.  She told me that a lot of people can get these sensations when they are extremelly anxious,depressed and when they suffer fromOCD etc.  Some people get these sensations when they suffer from OCD, so I guess it is important to work on our deep fears and anxieties and this in turn can allow us to have less anxiety and as a result we activate less the parasympathetic nervous system.  Walking,swimming helped me.

 

Also what helped me was seeing a pudendal nerve specialist. She gave me iron and vitamine C  (it works on neuropathy) and I got a ganglion impar block but not sure if it worked. I now that less estrogens and less testosterone seem to have helped me (I am now in menopause and i think this quieted down the PGAD).

 

Really if you can ask a physiotherapist to help you, they can really help. Also TENS can help you to relax the sympathetic nervous system (I used TENS at the beginning). It doesn't stop PGAD but it breaks the pain message to travel to your brain.

 

Ihope you will get better soon.

Hi cathyfrench

its so nice of you that you messaged on my thread...

Some people are telling me on this forum that this  is wave and window pattern which i am going through....i am not having arousals but pelvic and hip pains... which is making me panic right now....although most distrubing part of pgad was arousals ...some people on this forum are telling me to go to doctor and some are saying this is part of wave and window pattern....and my condition is right now that i am hopefull because my condition was worse earlier and suddenly i got better depression,anxiety ,pgad suddenly went away and i felt normal and relaxed....so.thats way i am hopefull it went earlier and it could go this time also....by the way  cathyfrench how would you rate your pgad out of 10 🤔...are you functioning normal or its is distrubing you to the point that you cant function...i am very afraid that its already 2 years of mild to moderate pgad and how many more time it will take to subside completely....i cannot drive becUse of pgad flaring up i am like housebound right now i wanted to start my masters studies...i was about to going married in some months how would i deal with all this........i will be marrying in comming some months or 1 year and its so scaring me if interfares than what would i do

Hi Mask,

I hope you are feeling better. I saw your questions and I would like to give you a bit of hope. My PGAD is kind of gone but I still have tinnitus. I think that going through the menopause helped me unless I recover with time.  Since I stopped antidepressants, I have never had waves and windows with my symptoms, they slowly went away. Slowly my PGAD symptoms  improved but I kept tinnitus. My tinnitus never changed. Some old symptoms that I had when I had just stop the antidepressant are however coming back. For example I had constant songs stuck in my head when I stopped sertraline and this withdrawal symptom is back.

I think that seeing a physiotherapist helped me for PGAD and seeing a behavioural psychologist helped me to deal with tinnitus.  Seeing a urologist and a pudendal nerve specialist helped me to deal with PGAD.

I hope you will get better soon

Cathy

Hi cathyfrench...

i hope you are well

right now i am feeling like my old symptoms are returned...after a gap of feeling good ...its like i am back in withdrawal....

i am having frequent urination again

little feeling of arousal again 

and burning and pain sensation in and around the genitals...

Like you at the begining my symptoms were severly worse which gradually went away....for almost 1 year...and i felt and thought that its over....i too didnt experince waves and windows in the begining but it slowly went away...but now i am back and i am feeling the same symtoms which i felt 2 years ago....but this time i am experincing windows....its like in the morning i am good then late afternoon it gets bad then again in late eveing it gets good.

 

I believe i am in wave right now

i am trying my best to ride out this wave

its like 3 to 4 months again i am in wave

 

Although these last 4 to 5 days i was feeling good

but still i dont no how much more time it will take to subside ....

i hope i will get ok soon in some comming months but for now i am feeling bad...

i hope this is wave and this will pass soon

 

Thanks very much cathyfrench

Why did you think you had covid-19?

 

Have you done anything recently that could upset your nervous system? Staying up too late? Fasting?

If you are doing things that could cause your symptoms, you're working against yourself. You are hurting yourself.

Hi altostrata i hope you are well and fine 👍🙂

Fasting has a lot of physical as well as mental benefits....you can google it as well...

by the way my pgad is very mild again i am noticing actually....its been i think one and half month my pgaid is normal again...although i still have some time problems regarding this...

But my anxiety is through the roof right now...

when i am try  to sleep at night i suddenly get anxiety and racing heart...which awakes me for some time then i get a very calming and relaxing sleep....but as soon as i wake up i get headaches for some hours then again its ok....

If fasting is causing panic attacks -- which it may very well do, as low blood sugar increases adrenaline production -- you are causing your own problems.

 

Your religion does not demand self-harm, you have chosen to do this to yourself.

 

If you cause your own problems, we cannot help you. If you seek drugs to counter your own self-harm, we cannot help you. We will have to ask you to leave this site.
