I just wrote a detailed post that took me quite awhile to write, which I never do, but I had to get my story out, and now I find that I can't find my discussion anywhere. Where Is it??

Hi Deansmimi,

I'm sorry to say that it appears your post never hit the board. Usually these aren't completely lost but I can't find it either. I don't know whether it was due to a technical issue on your end or ours but I know how disappointing that can be.

I hope you'll repost and, before you click the Post button, you copy it just in case it is lost again so you can easily repost it without having to recreate it all again.

Our apologies for this frustration.

Hello Deansmimi, Although your post disappeared, the topic drew my attention.

What does the pain feel like? Is it sharp, burning, dull or something else? I have lower back pain as well and it is caused by the way I sit. I have LSC which causes burning pain of the vulva area. Because of that pain I am forced to sit back on my tail bone. After sitting like that for over a year, the burning pain spread down my buttocks area and the inner thighs. Now I have lower back pain and tail bone pain. So the Pudendal nerve might be pinched and is causing the spreading of my pain.

So I was just wondering if perhaps your Pudendal nerve could be pinched.
