After experiencing severe pelvic pains for over a month and having CT scan results, which showed no spine injury, I went to Fiona Stanley Emergency Department (ED) to seek help. I was seen by at least 5 different staffs, who I clearly explained the symptoms every time I was asked.
After long discussions and me insisting that it is a neurological pain, they referred me to the MRI, which also showed no spine injury. After that, the doctor in charge told me that I am very lucky to have the MRI done and said that I am healthy and can go home now. I would like to point out that my symptoms got even worse after a sleepless night in the hospital. Unfortunately, they just gave me a prescription for painkillers without diagnosing me and showed me the EXIT.
Now it has been 3 months since I am in pain. I cannot sit and consequently I am unable to drive, which makes me a disabled person, who cannot work and even go shopping. Formally, I am still not diagnosed. The only person who explained to me what my problem is was the chiropractor. After listening to my explanations for a few minutes and doing a simple X-Ray, the chiropractor identified that it is pudendal nerve entrapment. Unfortunately, they can only help with manual therapy, which is not enough in my case. How can I get help from the public health system, Fiona Stanley ED in particular? I feel I need to print out the pudendal nerve entrapment symptoms from the Internet and show them in order to get treatment.
