Weight Fluctuations and Nerve Entrapment. Pudendal Neuralgia is a medical condition caused by the damage and irritation of the Pudendal Nerve of the lower body as it gets pressed down or trapped. It is characterized by burning pain, numbness, and swelling in the lower body, specifically, the genitals and perineum. This condition causes discomfort when urinating, defecating, and having sexual intercourse due to loss of control over the sphincters.
Interestingly, researchers found out that extreme weight loss and gain can entrap the nerve. Which means intense weight fluctuations can lead to the acquisition of Pudendal Neuralgia. This is why VITAL HEALTH MEDICAL CARE, your weight loss service in Rochester, New York, highly recommends a highly supervised weight loss process.
