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 …

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 …

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 …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

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!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

epidural for pain?

epidural for pain?

Post  meelie on Fri Mar 14, 2014 1:57 am

Hi everybody, haven't written for a while. I have been lurking and reading ya'll posts though. Embarassed  Have been going to PT. I thought it was helping but then my back started killing me. Went to a pain specialist. Had an MRI. Diagnosed with Spinal Stenosis. Was suggested to have an epidural for pain. Haven't had it yet, thinking I can do without it, then the V started back with a vengence. Wondering if an epidural for the pain of spinal stenosis would numb my V pain. But, when I'm not hurting, I'm still married, I do enjoy sex occasionally and would hate to number those particular nerves if you know what I mean. Any thoughts? Rolling Eyes

epidural for pain?

Post  meelie on Fri Mar 14, 2014 1:36 pm

I didn't go see this Dr. for the V. I am so so sick of telling people about my pussy problem I didn't mention it. At this point I don't even want to go back to the PT, I have become so mortified about having to do what she does to help ease the tight muscles. I was seeing him for back pain that the PT just wasn't able to figure out. I know the epidural is a band aide, if it works at all for the SS. But was wondering if it could help my V pain. I am 99.99% sure it is muscle and nerve related not skin related. I just don't want to tell that dr. about my V. If you are talking about seeing a dr. for the V who would take a different approach, then please do tell. I can't find anyone that knows how to fix it. I am not even contemplating surgery for the SS at this point. I am an RN and I have seen too much in the line of surgery mishaps.

Id google something.like vulvodynia specialists in Georgia and see what comes up. I wouldn't shy from surgery just because you've seen bad things before those people werent you. Sometimes you have to take a risk to feel better...

Epidural for pain

Post  Sunflower82 on Sun Mar 16, 2014 6:08 pm

Hi,
I had a problem with my back and I had a nerve block at l4 l5 ! Within two weeks it took away all my vulvar pain, I was able to have pain free sex for a couple off months ! It did nothing for my back and leg pain, and the dr could not explain why it had stopped all the other pain ! After 4 months I had it done again, this time it felt different and it set of all my v pain for over 6 weeks, but this time it had an effect on the numb sensation I was getting down my leg! I'm convienced the two are connected but it hard to get the drs to agree !

Thanks Sunflower, that is what I have been wondering. Did your V get any better after the second injection? Did you leg/back pain stay away for awhile? I am having such trouble deciding what to do. I have to drive 1 1/2 hrs to get the injection. I don't know how much my ins. will pay and am just kind of frozen in indecision. I would so def. do it if I thought it would take away this V burning. I
I think too that I've developed a real yeast infection on top of the V cause I'm itching and my burning is there in the morning which it usually is not. Don't know weather to try OTC or call GYN.
I stopped going to the PT for money and gasoline issues. Wish I had someone closer by but I don't.
Anyway thanks for your input and let me know how your V is doing and did you need a third inj?

Epidural for pain

Post  Sunflower82 on Mon Mar 17, 2014 5:24 pm

Hi,
After the second one the v pain for worse but my leg is no longer numb and I had it at the end if November ! My pain has settled down in term of the v but I still get the burning sensation and itching and sex is a little uncomfortable ! But it's not too bad, for a while after the injection it took away any sensation down below during sex, to the point that I couldn't really feel anything! Which was very different to before! Lately it's been sore and I tested positive for strep b so we haven't tried sex in the last month! The time we tried before the burning after has started to come back, but it's not as bad a it was before I had had the nerve block ! What level in your bk are they wanting to do the epidural ?
