Pain where you sit – Pudendal Neuralgia
This is a pain you may not have heard of before. The pudendal nerve is the nerve that goes to the muscles and skin between our legs where we sit. Some people call this the ‘saddle area’, which means that it affects the part of you that would touch a saddle if you were riding a horse.
The pudendal nerve travels through some tight places around the inside of your pelvis, where it can get irritated or be put under pressure, especially with cycling or childbirth. Sometimes no cause for the problem is found.
