I went to the gyn doctor for my annual exam yesterday and about died also. I have no more reproductive parts and I don't see the need for an exam, but I have to to get the premarin that I need. He did the finger exam and I thought that I would come up off the table. He asked me was I alright because my face had drained of color. I wanted to hit him it hurt so bad.
So no! it is not in your head. What is the fascia release that you mentioned and the website? Hope you feel better soon.
