In brief: Neurology consult

A definitive diagnosis will require definitive evaluation.
For a neurologic complaint, a neurologist is the best bet. Good luck.

In brief: Pain in perienum

Pudendal neuralgia is a diagnosis of pain, usually chronic but also can occur temporarily.
A urogynecologist (in women), a urologist and/or physical medicine & rehab physician may be best suited to diagnose and treat. Pain may be treated with medication, injection physical therapy and in some cases surgery. Only a few highly specialized centers in the US perform pudendal release surgically.
