Jennifer’s physicians here in Grand Rapids, Michigan have determined that she has a condition known as Pudendal Nerve Entrapment. This condition has many unbearable and painful symptoms that Pudendal Neuralgia sufferers have described as stinging, burning, stabbing, aching, knife-like, irritation, cramping, spasm, tightness, crawling on the skin, twisting, pins and needles, numbness, and hyper sensitivity. The pain affiliated with this condition is so severe that most people cannot sit nor participate in normal daily activities. It affects the functioning of their pelvic organs including the bladder and rectum. Most of individuals with this condition continue to be bedridden for the remainder of their lives. This disease is very rare, with not much being known about it. There are only five doctors total in the United States that specialize in the treatment of Pudendal Nerve Entrapment.
In addition to suffering from Pudendal Nerve Entrapment; Jennifer also has damage to her Hypogastric, Ilioinguinal, Sciatic nerves as well as complications with the Peripheral Neuropathy in both feet. These symptoms have been present since Jen’s Hip surgery in February 2014.
Jennifer has sought out the advice and medical attention of numerous doctors including but not limited to: a Neurologist, Orthopedic Doctor, Urologist, Pelvic Doctor, Urogynecologist, OBGYN, Chiropractor, and several Physical Therapists since this condition first presented itself. Jennifer has undergone numerous surgeries, procedures, injections, and treatments to attempt to eliminate the pain she endures on a daily basis.
Jennifer has not been able to work for the past 2 years due to her condition.
The majority, if not all of this surgery is not covered by insurance.
