Putnams 'bony parts' cushion or Putnams 'Dr Huff' cushion - which is best?

Sun Aug 02, 2015 3:17 am by Fielder

Hi everyone,

I'm a newbie.  I live in the UK.  

I'm trying to work out the best cushion to get for my vulvodynia.  I suspect that I could have pudendal nerve involvement (the aching and burning pain is from vagina to clitoris) and I have rectocele and some tailbone pain too.

I have seen some good reports on older threads regarding the Putnams pressure relief cushions....with some ladies …

In the UK with some questions...

Sat Aug 01, 2015 6:42 am by WaahwaahUK

I was just wondering re: calcium citrate. When I've looked online it seems to say calcium phosphate or carbonate as opposed to citrate. Anyone in the UK shed some light please?
Also, I've just been prescribed Nortryptiline 10mg. Scared to try it but going to give it a shot... I apparently have pudendal nerve inflammation along with incredibly sensitive nerve endings in my vulva and labia …

Hello. Now I am new to this site and reading all these posts really make me want to burst into tears. Two years ago I started to feel a burning sensation down below. I thought it was urinal track infections. I was too scared to even step foot into the doctors then. So about three months ago I visited the doctor and told her all my symptoms. She just gave me some tablets for an infection even …

Hello to anybody who's reading this!
I'm 21, 16 days ago I had my full vestibulectomy surgery. I'm supposed to have my period soon and I really wanted to hear from women who are past this process - what should I expect? Does it hurt? Do you have any advice on hygiene and stuff like that?
Through this all recovery process I've learned that the most difficult thing for me is dealing with all the …

Worsening vulvodynia, only 21

Mon Jul 06, 2015 5:05 am by katj21

Hello - bit of a long one. I'm 21, from the UK and was first diagnosed with vulvodynia at 18. I had previously had what I think was something like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (exhaustion, nausea, muscle pain and skin soreness on and off, worsening over my last 3 years of school but doctors never gave me a diagnosis as I wasn't severe enough). I had this and recurring thrush before my vulvodynia …

Help! Right side Vaginal Pain!

Post  tanyam23xo on Thu May 02, 2013 6:51 am

Hi everyone.
I am 26 year old female. I have had right side vaginal pain for about 3 years now. Some days it is burning, some days it is pain, some days it is nothing. I dont have any pain durning sex, but after it hurts. I have been to countless doctors. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT IS WRONG!! I recently just had a larproscopy done, and they found PID. They removed the PID, and i still have pain. I am thinking about trying Primose Oil, has anyone tried this? I am on an anti-depressant, that helps but the pain comes back. I use to take gabapintin 3 times a day, but i stopped that. SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME!!! Any type of advice would be good. I am starting to lose my mind. I am in consent pain every single day. I use to be very active and now I just want to sleep all the time. I can still have sex. Sex doesnt bother me, slightly, but i can deal with the pain. Please help

Could be trigger points in the pelvic floor or the hip rotators, go and see a womens health physio and have them do an internal examination to see if they can find the spot.

Re: Help! Right side Vaginal Pain!

Post  tanyam23xo on Thu May 02, 2013 7:15 am

I have been to a pelvic floor therapist. I did therapy for about 5 months. Pain would come back and go away. I even had a steriod injection inserted in my vagina!! I am speechless to what this pain could be. Everything anyone has tried, it doesnt help. I magically don't have pain when I am on my period. But as soon as I am off, the pain is right back. I feel that it is more muscle pain, but I'm not sure on what it could be exactly. Any thoughts?

Post  tanyam23xo on Fri May 03, 2013 12:46 am

I havent been to a "Pelvic Floor Specalist" but I have been to an OBYN, about 5 of them. No one knows what is wrong. I just had a laproscopy done, and they found PID. The PID has been removed, but i still have the pain. It hurts to even touch my right side of my vagina. It hurts to walk. I am out of words or ideas at this point. I dont know what to do Sad I am starting to think it is Vulvodynia, but i dont know. I have had ultra sounds, MRIs, blood work etc. NOTHING comes up. I have been on gabapintin, now i am on a anti depressant. I am going on a trip next week. I just want to feel better. When I went to physical therapy, it helped. My pain went away for about 6 months. But it is now back, and it HURTS!

Hi tanyam
Your pain sounds exactly like mine. I have deep right sided vaginal pain constant every day. Mine started after sex. It's kind of a dull sharp ache in my vagina wall sometimes raw. I have seen everyone gynos urologist dermatologists pain doctors etc but have found what is wrong with pelvic women's health physio. I have trigger points all inside my vagina mainly over the obturator internus muscle which connects with the hip. The trigger points are irritating the pudendal nerve causing the pain. My physio can pin point exactly along the nerve where it hurts. I maybe could have sex but I'm single now which is easier for me. But like you the pain came over the sex. Have a look at pudendal neuralgia.

Hi Kate,
So how what do you do to get rid of it? What kind of doctor do you think i should go to? Are you on any current medications? I dont have pain when I am on my period. No pain at all. I do believe its a muscle/nerve issue as well. Is there anything they can do to make it go away?!

Post  Alana3 on Fri May 03, 2013 1:58 am

I don't I had provoked vestibuldynia. Message me I need to ask you about Columbus (I'm pondering a move). I see a vulvar specialist in South Florida (where I live), he's my hero. Fixed me up like no ones's business, if you have the funds, I def suggest him, but I understand if you cant. He is ALSO affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic (down here) so that's why I thought maybe head into that direction up there, cant hurt right? My entire vag would hurt when I would have sex, touch it with qtip, or tampon use. But I had surgrey in December, which I'm sure you have seen me talk about on here. I have very little pain now, and I have muscular issues now, but it's no way near as horrible as it was back even 6 months ago Smile But I'm not sure what PID is (i know its pelvic inflammatory disease) but I know nothing more than what it's called, clue me in?

Hi tanyam
I think you should find a women's health pelvic floor physio who has a good knowledge of the pudendal nerve. If you look on the pudendal hope website there is a list of specialist physios. I think you need someone who can give you a thorough pelvic floor examination to see what's going on. I've been having physio for a good few months and it's definitely helping its hurts at the time and afterwards but my trigger points are loosening inside and outside. I take nortriptyline 40mg and lyrical 300mg per day. My nerve is going crazy why no one seems to know.

Kate, does the therapy help your pain? and does the medication? Seems we are on the same medication!

The physio therapy is helping with my pain I have had some pain free days. Does your pain feel deep inside your vagina? Mine is probably about 3 inches inside. I'm not sure about the medication I think it just takes the edge of the pain. The really bad burning has gone but I don't know if it is the medication or just time
