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 …

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.

POSSIBLE CURE 4 EVERYONE

Post  EverythingIsDifferentNow on Mon Sep 05, 2016 4:32 pm

Vulvodynia may not be as complicated as you think. It may not be nerve damage (which is actually unlikely and unusual) but a more common factor that may affect 90% of everyone's cases. That is ------ pH imbalance! Think about it. Where is that BURN coming from? Why is there a burn in the first place? Why does it resemble a burn-like feeling? Acidityyyyy! Girl, you've turned into a jalapeno pepper from the inside out. literally.

I used to have vulvodynia. Hands down, one of the worst things I've ever experienced in my life. Not only did it take a physical toll on me, but mentally and emotionally as well. I mean I couldn't enjoy a damn thing. I've done SO MUCH research, I'm basically an expert now. What I realized might have been what caused my vulvodynia was so simple. I used to have coffee everyday (with no water before or after drinking it), and LOTS of spinach. Why does this matter, you ask? Oxalate and acidity levels. High doses of oxalate or oxalate buildup can cause vulvodynia, and this may cause an unbalanced pH level in your system (*cough* especially ur vagina). Plus, the caffeine just added to the burn. So then I tried all kinds of diet. Gluten free, low oxalate, blah blah blah, and so many creams that seemed okay at first but just ended up making my pH level more off balance. So, first things first.

THIS IS WHAT REALLY HELPED. SKIP THE SURGERIES AND CREAMS. THEY'RE NOT THE REAL CURE. CURE THE NATURAL WAY. REVERSE THE PROCESS.
-*************Calcium citrate pills (you can get them at CVS or Wallgreens)
-Multi-vitamin pills (get that vitamin c, girly)
-Lower back exercises
-Skipping the caffeine everyday & the high oxalate foods

(but if you take the calcium citrate pills and return back to normal, you can eat normally -- even high oxalate foods w/o the irritating burn. Just don't overdose or make it a daily thing.)

So, it's been a year now and counting. I'm super fine. 100% normal. Note, however, this will take time. The reason you have vulvodynia, most likely, is because it was built up over time and then BAM. It hit you and you woke up with the worst burn ever. You need to be patient and you will very likely see a difference in 2 weeks, maybe even less.

ALSO, LADIES. A SIDE NOTE FOR ANY FREQUENT UTI-PRONE SUFFERERS *aka me*, nature's the best medicine!
SKIP THE ANTIBIOTICS. I HAVEN'T HAD A UTI IN MONTHS.
-Uva Ursi is a natural plant that can take away your UTI in a few days (sometimes as short as less than 24 hrs)(Amazon)
-D-Mannose is an all natural sugar that binds to the bad bacteria in your bladder and kidneys, and flushes them away. Takes about 24-72 hrs to clear. Usually 24 hrs, though. (Amazon)
-Add a garlic clove or two, smash it up or poke holes, and put in glass with a little bit of hot water, let sit for 5 minutes, and drink! Kills only bad bacteria and even antibiotic-resistant bacteria! Woo! (BE CAREFUL W/ GARLIC. VERY POWERFUL. Don't eat raw very often because it may irritate your bladder by burning it a bit. This can take a day or two to heal if done so.)

BEST OF LUCK, LADIES. I WAS SEVERELY DEPRESSED OVER THIS AND BECAME DISHEARTENED WHEN I HEARD THERE WAS NO CURE, BUT THE CURE IS REAL AND OUT THERE FOR EVERYONE. EVERYONE'S BUILT DIFFERENT, BUT DON'T GIVE UP HOPE. sunny sunny sunny

This sounds like it makes sense. I'm allergic to milk, and I often go off dairy for a while to help my eczema. Although I eat calcium containing veg, probably not often enough to provide the RDA I should have. I may try taking a supplement for a few months just to see.

It makes sense if you suffer from burning and everyone with this symptom can try diet changes, however not everyone has burning
