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 …

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 …

THERE IS HOPE I OVERCAME VULVODYNIA - IT WENT AWAY

Post  mtaylor18 on Fri Mar 20, 2015 3:48 pm

Since 2009 I had suffered with terrible UTI's, kidney infections, cystitis, recurrent thrush and lots of gynecological and urological problems I became very depressed. December 2012 I had chronic pain in my vulva (AGAIN) but this time it felt different, it was there around a month and just didn't go away! I went to hospital and had an ultrasound where they saw two burst ovarian cysts. I thought this would be the end of the pain after leaving hospital! ALAS, two months later it was still there, I made an appointment with my gynecologist where I was diagnosed with Vulvodynia. I didn't know what vulvodynia was before, but it was ruining my life. I started taking anti-depressants, which I felt were having no effect. I'd tried every cream possible, and nothing was happening. I kept getting more infections too.

Unbelievably December 2014 IT LITERALLY ALL JUST STOPPED. One morning I woke up and the pain was just gone! Just like that! I'm not sure if it was the antibiotics I'd taken the week previous or the anti-depressants having kicked in after all that time but since December I've had virtually no pain and Since the beginning of March I have had no problems at all! Things I did I believe which have stopped it: Stopped my pill which was Gedarel, wore cotton underwear more often, took the session of antibiotics, and used anti-depressants! my blog inspirementalhealth.wordpress shows how I managed pain.
