New and need some help

Wed Feb 21, 2018 4:30 pm by LindafromNJ

New to this site ad trying to figure out how it works.  I am trying to post as a new member so I am hoping this goes thru.  I am a senior adult and have just been diagnosed by the Drexil Vaginitis Center to have vulvodynia along with Vestibulitis (not sure if spelled correctly).  My symptoms are vaginal burning, itching, soreness around the vaginal opening with one spot in particular.  Some …

MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Anybody else get a feeling like electricity buzzing around the affected area

Post  BerylH on Tue Oct 09, 2012 8:34 am

Hi everyone
Many thanks for your replies to my previous message posted on behalf of my mother, it has been most helpful and I really appreciate the time you take to offer help and advice.
I have another question I wanted to ask for her, and that is her explanation of the feeling is that she feels like electricity is buzzing around constantly, like a pulsating, buzzing feeling, she even mentions feeling like her whole body is swaying, almost like she is on a boat. Does anyone else have this sensation (it is painful as well as buzzing), and she also feels as though there is a boil or something that needs to be lanced to stop the pressure, especially when sitting down, and yet on inspection through the various doctors, gynaecologists, etc there is nothing visible there.
I haven't seen this electricity feeling mentioned on the forum, so just wanted to check if anyone else has a similar feeling, to rule out the fact that maybe she has been misdiagnosed all along and that is why she is having very little success with any of the treatments.
Many thanks for reading and I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Beryl,

So sorry to hear your mother is suffering with vulvodynia. I spotted this post and thought I would respond as I have had the electricity thing. Normally my pain is of the burning / stinging type, but when it was at the worst of the worst I had the electricity type feeling. It was the weirdest and most horrible sensation and I haven't had it since but it's definitely possible with v. I suppose it is the nerves there going crazy.

In case it helps, I am on lyrica (pregabalin) which helps a lot to supress the pain. It doesn't eliminate it but makes life more bearable. I also use instillagel on the area which is a topical aneasthetic, I put this on at night to help keep the pain signals dampened down. For short term relief your Mum could also try vagisil which you can buy over the counter, it's a cream with anaesthetic in.

Also, if sitting is painful for your Mum I can recommend these cushions:

I have two, one for the office and one for the car and they help a lot with the pain of sitting.

All the best to you & your Mum,
Liz

Thanks so much Liz for your response, it helps me to think she has had the right diagnosis and that we are on the right track. She has had a visit to the pain clinic today so I passed on the details about the pregabalin and the pressure cushion - that particularly seems like a sensible way forward as the sitting is the hardest part and at 70, it's not easy to stay standing and busy all day long.
really appreciate you taking the time to reply and I wish you every success with your treatment and a pain free future.
Take care
Julie

I know exactly how she feels I can be sitting or standing in one spot for a little while an as soon as I move it feels like a taser is electrifying me an if I try to move the pain will just shoot up my body an about 50% of the time when that happens the pain takes me so off guard that my body will start to rock back an forth. I call it a spasm when it happens because I have to be so still a couple of minutes after it happens just so it will go away! I hope she get something to help with it because for me it's unbearable!!!!!

Post  Acintya on Wed Oct 24, 2012 5:28 pm

The buzzing is almost certainly due to some disturbance in the nerves in this area. I have also experienced this over the years
and recently I had several bouts which were like electric shocks. Your mother could have a problem with the Bartholin gland which might explain the swelling she feels. Another cause of this type of sensation is viral infection along a nerve channel such as Herpes.
A vast proportion of the populations carry this virus often with no symptoms...however a lowered immunity for a brief period can result in symptoms of this kind. I hope your Mum is reading this so that she knows she is in very good company. All the best to you x
