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 …

Tue Oct 24, 2017 2:46 pm by katycrawford

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 …

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 …

new, scared, and confused, please help need advice??

Post  vwade on Tue Feb 25, 2014 7:52 pm

Hi im not really sure. My pain started about two weeks ago. Thought I had a uti, frequent urination, test -then started feeling pain in my clitoris, or numbness. Since then I have had a burning sensation right above vaginal opening. Its so bad it burns 24/7. Problem is I have no medical insurance:(. Maybe some of you can help me if it sounds like what I may have, anyone have similar symptoms?? And mainly what do u do to get through the day. I cant concentrate on anything but the burn. I just want it to go away.

Eeek! Try a baking soda bath! It could honestly be a really bad infection or vulvodynia unfortunately only a doctor can tell you. If you're in the states go to Planned Parenthood theyre usually good!

Agreed with Alana, you should go to Planned Parenthood. They have a sliding pay scale to make sure women's health is always within reach, whether you have insurance or not. If you are living in a state which lacks Planned Parenthood, find out if there is some other type of clinic for uninsured (if you are near a teaching hospital, that is often a good bet). As far as your case, it is probably not vulvodynia, though the possibility is always there. There are a ton of different infections that can cause your symptoms, including the numbness/tingling, and those are going to be the cause of what you're experiencing 99% of the time. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that it's not vulvodynia!

Why would you wait for your period if you're in that much pain?
