Pudendal Neuralgia

The pudendal nerve is one of the main nerves that innervates muscles of the pelvic floor and gives sensation to the genitals and perineum.  Pudendal neuralgia is a chronic condition that may arise if the pudendal nerve is irritated, compressed or damaged, often after a traumatic injury.  Symptoms may include pelvic, buttock, and genital pain and are generally worse with sitting or positions that tension the nerve.
