There are many doctors who understand this syndrome but I don't know how you will find one unless you have a pelvic pain clinic in your area. You may need to call a larger medical center and ask for a referral to a doctor who deals with this issue.
I'm sorry I can't be more helpful. I do not have access to a directory of physicians by specialty and area.
This syndrome is chronic dull and aching pain, possibly with episodes of sharp stabbing pain which gets worse with standing, exercising, walking, sitting, menstruating and many other times.
I assume you have ruled out some other conditions such as endometriosis or cystic ovaries. No matter what the cause of your pain, you should be able to get help and relief.
