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 …

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.

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 …

Have you had any tests done? Swabs, blood tests, biopsies?

Go to a specialist! If they're only looking for STDs you need to find someone who can think outside the box.  And I would try and not wait a couple of weeks.  Go now, it's probably not going to get better by itself.  Did they test for ureaplasma, strep, BV? Yeast?  Did they tell you your skin was miscolored?  Anything other then "oh you're negative for stds".  I'll tell you my specialist didn't even hint at testing me for that stuff because he saw right away what the problem was.  A run of the mill gyno is not something you'd want for actual problems.  I had one put my acyclovir for herpes WHEN I DIDNT HAVE HERPES!  I finally said ENOUGH and paid a little more for better care. STD's were never mentioned.  I honestly feel that the only reason they test for those is because they don't know why else and at least they did something.

Don't play Dr. Google. It's a waste of everyone's time and you're going to freak yourself out worse.

I have been tested for bv and yeast... I had a uti a while ago they treated that. I thought it was herpes too but all my blood tests are neg and I don't get sores or anything. Also I would not have almost daily symptoms for months. I know I need to go to a better dr I just can't afford it right now. The drs just keep telling me it sounds like a skin irritation and to use dove soap and things like that.

Is there a cleveland clinic nearby? They were good. I went thru the herpes/wart scare too. Trust me you do not have them. Its probably along the lines of vulvodynia but you really need a.diagnosis.

Why the hell are they telling you to use Dove soap? It's full of irritants!!!

Until you can get a diagnosis, try and wash with only water as you may have an allergy to a chemical and make it worse.

Alana3 may I ask what "type" of specialist was the one to finally diagnose your condition correctly? A vulva specialist, Gyno, dermatologist?
