I visited my GYNO this past week. I hadn't had a pap in a couple of years, and I also wanted to rule out some pelvic pain versus FMS, if that makes sense. Well, the pelvic exam checked out okay, no cysts or fibroid issues going on so far. Although I am embarrassed to mention this, I felt I should. In the past sex has been painful for me (I'm not active now) and I mentioned this to her, she is aware of my FM. She checked me for vulvodynia and that checked out okay. The next thing she mentioned was very embarrassing to me, she asked me if I was willing to try "vaginal physical therapy", to help with pain. She seems to think, or at least she led me to believe that the painful sex could be a part of the FM. Part of FM is a muscle problem and because we "hurt all over" it affects that area as well. She was very nice about it and she didn't make me feel awkward or anything, so it's not the doctor, I just have never heard of this type of therapy before? I almost wanted to laugh and say I have been to so much "regular" physical therapy in the past, but not this kind. She told me if I was interested to call her office back and they would give me more information. Not sure I really need this for the purpose it is indicated for, but maybe it would help with pelvic pain stemming from the FM, really confused about this one and definately not sure I would do it, seems too personal and strange, LOL. Normally, I don't post about these kind of things, but geeeezzz, you learn something new everyday I guess. Anyone heard of this?????? Hugs, Chelz.
