Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

Hello,
Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

Hi there,

Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

Hi,

I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Hello everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months. I have been very uncomfortable for the entire time, but now I have absolutely unbearable stinging and burning all day with itching too. The infection has just about gone, …

Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

Aw thanks Alana! I really enjoy talking to you here.

Ok pep talk....You're going to do GREAT! I swear! You're going to walk in there, they'll put you in a gown and then you go to sleep. The anesthesia is awesome btw, best sleep of your life. It'll feel like you blinked and it'll be over.

I'm sorry I'm responding so late! I hope you see this before you go into surgery! I know you'll be fine! Try not to worry so much if you can. I don't know how I managed to not pass out before I went in...I'm always a panicky mess, haha. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow! If you can/ feel up to it tomorrow let me know how it went! I'll be anxious to check the forum!

Good Luck!!!!! Very Happy

He thinks he got all of it. I threw up after but it's more muscle pain and one stitch is mimicking vv which im not gonna lie id really annoying. Yeah I thought I had a uti because of how much im peeing but I guess it's normal. Originally it looked like I got shot but the blood is going away. Im able to sit pee and eat and walk by myself to ths potty so I guess im ok. It feels more like muscle pain than anything tho

See it wasn't so bad Smile. I'm glad you're able to walk and sit and mostly feel comfortable. The stitches are so annoying but it'll get better. The more you soak them the fast they'll dissolve. They'll start to get itchy in a few weeks, which sucks. Your I've pack will be your best friend haha.

Yeah it is. I ended Yup being allergic to drug but realized after I spoke with him thankfully dads a doc so he wrote me new. Then I thought I pulled a stitch out but I guess I didn't. Good news is the bleeding is already spotting but now instead of vulvodynia pain I have surgical pain n how long til it goes away? I'm scared to poop too Lol (I'm on softener but I threw up and it hurt so bad because of those muscles)

Alana - if you can bear it drink lots of prune juice. That should help keep things running smoothly if you see what i mean!

No Alana i haven't had surgery (my vvd is more generalised so it wouldn't work for me) but i got very bunged up in the early days of my vvd when i was taking loads of painkillers.

Good luck with your recovery. Feeling loopy sounds fun?!

Aw sorry hun - in that case loopy is NOT good. But laying in bed, although frustrating, probably is what your body needs right now. As for 'going' - might be better to go before it builds up even more? (the things we talk about here lol!)

Alana,

You should be good to go. Prune juice is so gross but I drank it after my surgery to help. I also ate prunes and took a fiber supplement. Don't be scared! It'll be just fine. Just try not to push too hard, haha. I hated those pills they made me so stupid. I only took them before bed for the first 2 days. That pain you're feeling should go away with in 2 to 3 weeks. It really depends on what toe of healer you are. Like I healed petty quickly. If you want to feel less loopy you could take naproxen or Advil. It's strong enough to help the pain if its just that muscle ache feeling.

Not really, but everyones healing experiences are different. I've read from other women that they had vuvlodynia like pain after surgery, but it went away. I'd say it's perfectly normal to still feel some of the pain. Don't stress about every pain. It's most likely going to go away within the next few weeks.
