    Dear Amy,

    I’ve reached your blog after reading your book Heal Pelvic Pain. I’ve suffered from severe pelvic pain for a couple years (since giving birth) and had my first feeling of hope in being able to treat it after reading your book.

    I wanted to know if you could address one question on your blog: the issue of severe pain in the morning. My pelvic pain is extremely bad in the morning, and improves after moving. I have had doctors suggest that this may be rheumatoid arthritis, although I have pain nowhere else in my body. As I try to reach a diagnosis (on whether this is post-partum-related pelvic pain or something related to rheumatoid arthristis), I wanted to know if you (or one of the other therapists on your blog) could comment on this issue of whether pain tends to be worse in the morning or not for pelvic pain, or whether my situation is atypical.

    Any comments on this would be greatly appreciated.
