Pelvic Pain & Post-menopausal Female
Once again, it is time for bed but instead of falling asleep, you’re tossing and turning, trying to get your legs comfortable and relaxed. Your partner sighs, obviously aware of your near-constant wiggling. You wonder if either of you will ever get another good night’s rest.
Chronic pelvic pain is one of the most common reasons that women visit the gynecologist. At times it may seem like there is no practical solution for pelvic pain, which can be discouraging for many patients that visit pelvic pain doctors. Most people don’t realize that pelvic pain can be a symptom of a vascular condition. When your gynecologist gives no hope for your pain then it is time to visit a vascular specialist near you.
