Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Post Full Vestibulectomy - 5 Years Later - Please Read

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

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 …

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

NEED SUPPORT.....

Post  Guest on Sat Jan 11, 2014 7:10 pm

Hello, I'm 20 and have had vulvodynia since age 14. My problems started with yeast infections then bacterial and this lasted a good 4 months before the doctor decided to check and turns out there was no more infection but just horrible burning pain. I can't sit walk or stand for to long. I was diagnosed with vulvodynia, vestibultis, pelvic floor muscle dysfunction, and neuropathy. I have had almost every treatment including a neurostimulator in my back. I also had the biggest surgery available which is the vestibulectomy. I would be more than happy to share more about my treatments and story through email.

I would love to have a friend who has vulvodynia too so I have someone I can talk to who understands what I go through each day both physically and emotionally.

I'm in Melbourne, I had the surgery about 6 months ago.....it did help take the edge off which is a great help. I had a neurostimulator put in but due to complications it has caused more pain than help......

You will find lots of support here Smile I'm 25 and just starting to take control of my vulvodynia and try to find some relief. I have posted on this site a couple times and the response has been wonderful, we are all going through the same thing and we are all here for each other. I don't really know how to work this site, but if there is a "Private Message" button, you can message me any time. I'm here for you and I'm struggling too. I am currently looking into treating it with chiropractic care, sent out my first e-mail today. I know it may feel shameful to look for help or talk about your condition, but I think the stigma is being turned down and more people are learning about our conditions. I hope your surgery heals perfectly and that you're free from the pain.

a neurostimulator?
I thought that was AFTER you have tried all the medication possible, ketamine infusions, lyrica, narcotics///
after them the are nerve blocks I thought pain pumps and neurostim. are final treatments

The biggest problem is we keep bouncing back and forth on these forums and read pro and against opinions on surgeries, medication, whatever else but at the end of the day these are simply statistics!!!!!!
just because it worked for her does not mean anything !!! we have different bodies, amitriptyline works for me, but it will do nothing for the next person and so on... it's maddening
I've read so many vulvodynia stories on vulvodynia.com guestbook my head hurts !!! for some the surgery worked...but then again there are 2 surgeries at least ..one with bartholin gland removal and one without ! for some only the bartholin glands were removed and they were cured, for others no, it was nerve blocks which cured them, for others PT, for others lyrica, ad infinitum !

I can advocate all day long about medication because it works for me, but I have different symptoms and reactions to others.
We NEED DOCTORS to figure this out !!! they need to start paying more attention to these conditions
