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 …

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

Amitriptyline given for vulvodyina pain

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

Hi there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. 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 …

7 years later and life looks bleak :(

Wed Dec 06, 2017 2:50 am by RainyShay77

So 7 years ago I had a case of BV...the antibiotic caused a horrible yeast infection which took 5 months to 'get rid of'. During this time I had allergic reactions to 2 of the yeast infection creams which magnified the pain. Over the past 7 years I've tried multiple rounds of physical therapy (they only slightly helped), chiropractic, nerve blocks, medications to target nerve pain (amitriptyline, …

Newly diagnosed - and prescribed amitriptyline cream/physio/psychology

Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:38 am by sophiarp

Hi everyone,

I'm so happy to have stumbled across this forum. I have just been diagnosed and am really struggling emotionally. It's nice to find this forum and feel a little less alone.

I've been prescribed amitriptyline cream. Has anyone had success with this? I was happy to have avoided the amitriptyline tablets. I'm also participating in physio and have been told I need to see a psychologist …

Somebody please help me...

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

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 …

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 …

Hi, I was searching the internet and came across this story of a lady who had vaginal burning she described her pain as feeling like acid being on her skin down there as a constant feeling especially after urinating and she said she would get heartburn all the time so she thought that it might be high acid levels.So she went to a dermatologist and the dr. said they should do acid level test and sure enough she had high acid levels .I felt like she was describing my symptom's of feeling like acid is being pored on my skin I feel like I might have high acid to I get heartburn quite often to.If there anyone who has had high acid levels reading this and is now cured or at least your symptoms have let up some please would you let me know what has worked for you .

I have chronic gastritis but it arrived a few years after the V so not sure it's connected with me.

That is what mine feels like! Right now it's hard to cope with. How do you test acid levels? My blood and urine is fine (except a bit iron deficient but I take supplements & Fybogel)

If you're referring to low-oxalate diet, my gyno strongly opposed the idea when I asked him that I wanted to support my current treatment with low-oxalate diet.
He said that the recent researches stated that the amount of oxalate crystals in urine of women who suffer from V are the same as the healthy women.
As to his opinion, this's a multi-disciplinary condition. It can be caused by sensitive nerve endings or pelvic floor disorder or hormonal imbalance. There's no certain and proved reason for this condition for now so, the treatment's supposed to be combo.

Re: High acid level's causing vaginal burning

Post  cupcake25 on Tue Oct 08, 2013 8:21 pm

I tend to have a lot of issues with acidic stomach pains. Sometimes it feels like my stomach is on fire, or someone dumped battery acid down my throat. I have noticed a connection between these flare ups and my v pain, which is burning at the entrance. Not only do I have these problems, but I notice I have an acidic smell in general (sorry, it's gross), to my sweat. I'm beginning to believe these are connected in some way, but I'm not sure what's causing it or what to do. Sparkling water and Zantac help my stomach but I'm not sure about the v pain. Once it flares it's tough to control

cupcake25 have you ever tried drinking kefir? If you drink natural kefir every day, it'll definitely sooth and balance your stomach.

Hi burning! Thank you for the suggestion. I've never tried kefir. It's a dairy product, right? Unfortunately I am lactose intolerant Sad

Hi cupcake, I'm sorry for you Sad
Kefir is a yoghurt like product and it's very rich in terms of probiotics. It cures candida and it's also recommended for patients suffering from reflux.
Maybe you can find lactose free kefir. I hope you'll get better asap.

Well it makes sense to me because our mucous membranes are all connected. I found this study very promising, so i am going to try the Sea Buckthorn oil. Can't hurt.

I suffer from severe indigestion/reflux too. Nowhere near as bad since I got onto a product by a company called Bioceuticals, "Intestamine". It contains Slippery Elm which is great for stomach issues and helping repair the lining of the stomach caused by indigestion issues. That accompanied with Metagenics "Gastro-Aid" capsules, made such a big difference.

I have occasionally had heartburn and an unpleasant sour taste in my mouth, i wonder if this could be acid reflux ?? and if that could connect to the vaginal burning... do you know how i could ask for an acid test at the docs? Im in UK
