It’s a mouthful and a handful:  

Pudendal neuralgia (PN) or the closely-related pudendal nerve entrapment (PNE)

The main symptom of this nerve condition is pelvic pain (in the genitals) in sitting. It may be better when you wake up, get worse during the day, and get better when lying down or standing.

The area of the pain can be anywhere in the vulva for women (clitoris, vestibule, perineum, anal area) or the penis or perineum for men.

Pudendal neuralgia and PNE are actually quite difficult and technical to diagnose. There are a whole range of other conditions that may have similar symptoms, such as:

Diagnosis occurs when symptoms are eased following a nerve block to the pudendal nerve.

Manual therapy is a very important part of recovery. This is a highly specialised area of physiotherapy.
