Pudendal neuralgia: Yes definitely can cause the symptoms you mention. The pudendal nerve on the RIGHT and LEFT side supplies the area you mentioned and controls sensation. In uncomplicated vaginal deliveries of babies, this nerve is blocked to aid with pain control as the baby exits the birth canal.

With all of those go: See your primary care doctor for a thorough workup. There are so many possibilities that 400 spaces here could not do them justice. If you are not getting answers from your current physician, there certainly no reason for not getting a second opinion and even several specialty opinions if necessary to clearly define the problems. Do that at the soonest possible date.

What would cause my potassium to be low with cardiac issues and flank pain? Doc said urine looked good. Im 24/eat well/do not overly lose fluids

Urinary losses: Unless you have long standing diarrhea or take water pills, you abnormally lose potassium in urine. Need to see a nephrologist. It is possible that your adrenal gland secretes more of aldosterone hormone than normal. Lab tests would confirm this. There are other possibilities too that need to be ruled out by your doc. It may end up that you will need to take a potassium pill or two, long term.

Blood test for HCG: If you had sex since your last period, you may wish to get a blood test for HCG level to settle the issue.
