Chronic Pelvic Pain

Chronic or persistent pelvic pain can have a multitude of medical causes. It is essential to be fully checked out by your GP, and sometimes referral to a specialist, such as a gynaecologist, is important. However, there are some types of chronic pelvic pain where no clear structural cause is found; that is, it is difficult to pin the pain on one particular joint or organ, and tests such as ultrasounds and blood tests come back normal. Sometimes, there has been a problem in the past (such as thrush, or an injury) which has long since healed, but the pain persists. In this situation, there is often a process called neurogenic inflammation going on. As pain persists over time, the possibility of developing something known as central sensitisation increases.
