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.

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 …

Weight gain from Neurontin?

Post  Antaea on Mon Jun 06, 2016 8:15 am

Did anyone of you Ladies experience weight-gain while using Gabapentin?

I am on Neurontin, 300 mg in the evening, since 3 weeks. It works very fine. But during the last week I have increased my weight with 3 pounds/1,5 kg, even I do not eat different. My weight increased from one day to the other with 1 kg. This makes me very unhappy, because I do not know how to stop it. I just want to cry!! Is this a side-effect of Gabapentin? Is becoming a fat, ugly woman the price I have to pay for living a normal life in spite of V???? Sad Sad Sad

I'm sorry to hear you're having weight gain side effects. I personally do not use gabapentin, but studies do show weight gain as a side effect (see below link). If you are using it in a compounded cream, I would assume it would reduce the side effects but not eliminate them.

Re: Weight gain from Neurontin?

I started taking Gabapentin in June and worked up to 300 mg, three times a day. Before I started it, I was in so much pain and suffering so much anxiety, I literally could not eat, so I did lose weight. Now that I'm taking Gabapentin, I'm eating normally and have put on a few pounds, which is natural after starving myself (not intentionally). I finally leveled off at 145 lbs in July. (I was at 155 lbs when my pain first started in April, 2016). While I have consistently hovered at 144 lbs to 146 lbs for the past two months, I've noticed that my stomach seems more rounded and puffy. So even though my scale isn't showing any weight gain, my body feels heavier. Maybe your body simply needs to adjust to your new medicine. I know what you mean about wanting to cry. I think I have cried every day since April. Hang in there!

I do want to point out that I was put on Gabapentin for a back injury. I have not been formally diagnosed with V yet, but I am 99.9% certain that I have V. I have an appointment with a specialist in Birmingham, AL, on December 1st.

My biggest problem now is trying to find clothes to wear. I have looked at four stores online this morning and can't find any pants. I'm not sure what I am going to wear this winter! I'm starting to wonder if I will need to buy a sewing machine, learn to sew, and make my own pants.
