What causes pelvic pain? Nerves? without nerves, the body is numb. Pain is felt when nerves send messages to the brain. If the nerve supply is interupted or blocked, pain is blocked. Pain indicates damage. This may be damage to the nerves, muscles, ligaments, joints and organs the nerves supply. If the damage does not heal, the pain becomes chronic.
This is one of the largest networks of nerves outside the brain. It keeps the pelvis, reproduction functions, bladder, colon, rectum and lower limbs functioning properly, as doctors we interfere with it at our patients' peril. If this network is damaged, the person experiences pain in the pelvis, infertility, as well as bloating, nausea diarrhoea and any number of symptoms associated with the last part of the gut and rectum. Like all parts of the Autonomic Nervous System it also plays its part in managing blood pressure.
