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 …

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 …

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.

For 4 years post …

Welcome, you are obviously not alone. So sorry you couldn't work and you are in so much pain. There is hope. There are many different meds out there and the research continues. I'm sure you have tried many of the treatments. I am on 2400 mgs of Gabepentin and now 300 mgs of Lyrica. I have had relief in the past so i am hopeful it will be back. This disorder has interfered w/ my working out, sex and everyday life (sitting etc.) but, i continue to fight the battle. at times it is a tough battle. different things work for different people. we are all here to support each other. Don't give up hope.

i'm happy you have a supportive boyfriend. hang in there and keep on signing in.

hello again Gem123.

Gabepentin is the generic name for Neurontin. neurontin is a anti-convulsant. it really did cut my pain in half when i first started. but, i had to go up to 3000 mgs. Like Sebby says..there are a number of a combination of treatments that helps individuals. i never went on ami-triptiline. it sounds like it can help, but side effects for some are not good. keep on advocating for yourself. we will find a way! yes..you need to feel good and be there for your child. we need to take care of ourselves and not give up.
