Great book to read if you suffer from chronic pelvic pain

A sub-forum for those with pain, but no explanation for it. Vent, share, ask, and help others. That is what this little corner is all about!

Hi guys,

I was recommended this book by msimon (thank you) and thought I'll share it with others who continue to suffer from chronic pain despite being declared "healed" of an anal fissure.

"People who have had some kind of injury and pain that has caused the pelvic muscles to reflexively tighten against the pain, the pelvic muscles don't relax well after contraction. They stay in a tight state or spasm and when the muscles don't relax, all kinds of weird symptoms occur....The state of chronic constriction creates pain referring trigger points, spasm and chronic hypertonicity, reduced blood flow, and an inhospitable environment for the nerves, blood vessels, and structures throughout the pelvic basin".
