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 …

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 …

Newly diagnosed

Tue Oct 10, 2017 8:37 pm by Brevispink

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.

For 4 years post …

Do you ever worry that you're making it up?

Fri May 27, 2016 6:50 am by Lucci

Hello,

I was diagnosed with Vaginismus and Vulvar Vestibulitis 10 years ago. I was 18 and scared and moving across the country for college, but luckily was able to find a doctor who specialized in 'Women's Health' who immediately put me into physical therapy. Long story short, I've been in and out of the system ever since.

A few years into treatment, I had the diagnosis of PTSD added on for …

Valium suppository.

Valium suppository.

Post  Meowlowxo on Thu Feb 20, 2014 6:47 pm

Hi everyone,
I have been dealing with this emotionally and psychically painful disease for about 9 years. My biggest issue is sexual activity. Daily activities, like wearing pants or sitting, don't seem to bother me. While I am sensitive on the outside, most of my pain  is excruciating pain, and it is on the inside. I recently saw a doctor who has been rated at top of the line, she suggested Valium suppositories. I'm a bit hesitant about this solution, or lack of solution. Has any one had experiences with Valium suppositories? Positive or negative, I wouldn't mind hearing either side. I don't object them, and I would  try them if they help this awful pain, I would just like to hear if anybody has their own story involving them.

Thanks so much,
Sarah

Hi! I'm using suppositories pretty regularly now to help me progress through the dilators. It helps me a lot with muscle tightness and spasms, but never helped in the past with any of the nerve pain. I've never tried putting them in before sex though, theoretically it might help! There is no harm in trying.

My doctor suggested using them for pain so I tried them. They helped but it was only short-term (meaning for an hour or two), and the time that they worked for decreased dramatically in a short period of time (within several weeks they did not work for very long any more--maybe 30 minutes). And the relief was not enough for intercourse.

If I used them for several days in a row I would have slight bleeding from them, nothing major but I did need to wear a liner. I'm not sure if this occurs for everyone but it was irritating for me because the liners caused burning (counter-intuitive!)

My pain is muscular and nerve pain. I will tell you that for times when I had muscular pain during the night that was keeping me awake and I would use one it was helpful to relieve the spasms and help me to sleep. Hope my experience helps with your decision.

I just started them on Friday. My PT suggested them and so I got the prescription from my doctor. I only have pain with penetration, so I'm not sure if they're working. I am also having discharge--thank you for clearing that one up. I was afraid something was wrong. I don't know if I'm going to refill my prescription on them. I got enough for twenty days and unfortunately you have to use them quickly or else they expire.

why would valium expire anytime than after a year? That's not true in the least. They are like any other drug.

It's a compounded medication built into a suppository that looks like earplugs, so it's very different from the regular pills that are more shelf-stable, so yes it is true. I think I'm going to stop them once they're gone though. I don't think they're helping and I keep having light bleeding throughout the day even though I'm only using them at night.
