Hello. Welcome to JA. I will review your statement and respond. I assume you have had an MRI scan (anatomic MRI) or a CT scan of the pelvis? If you have problems with specific nerves, like the pudendal nerve in the pelvis that runs under the bladder, you can get a surface EMG/NCS study (electromyogram). That is a study where the neurologist locates the area where the nerve lies under the skin and then stimulates it and records its electrical signal to test if it is damaged or intact, and to what degree. I will attach an abstract on this technique that was published earlier.
