What has been helping ME (much less pain over time!!)

Wed May 16, 2018 3:43 am by leoscc

Hello everyone! I vanished for quite some time as my life became consumed by not only this but other daily responsibilities as well. Shortly after my diagnosis, my boyfriend f 3 years left me as he did not want to deal with this. It left me broken for a while but also gave me time to figure out what the heck was going on. So, I will write out a quick list of my symptoms and what helped me.

1. I …

I cured myself 100% of vulvodynia twenty years ago--I hope this helps someone

Mon Mar 12, 2018 4:33 pm by totallycured

Hi,

Every so often I'm reminded of the constant, persistent, horrible pain I was in two decades ago, and I reach out to try to help others who are suffering. If someone had offered me a solution during that terrible time, I'd have jumped at it. I hope this helps someone.

Yes, I did have terrible vulvodynia. It felt like someone poured acid all over my vulva. My doctor confirmed it and was …

To give the context for this: in September 2016 I moved in with my long term boyfriend after living abroad a year and (nearly) abstaining from sex. Within a few weeks I had got a yeast infection which I treated myself successfully, but then 2 weeks …

Condoms Less Painful?

Mon May 07, 2018 3:35 am by stillinpain

I'm just curious, has anyone found using condoms to be less abrasive to the skin than without? I just got off birth control and haven't stretched myself out enough post surgery to try sex yet, but when I do I am wondering how trying it with condoms with affect the sensation. I feel like for me the skin to skin sensation creates pain, not just at my entrance but internally, too, since I also have …

Will there be an end?

Fri Apr 27, 2018 12:06 am by Krista2828

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious …

Fri Nov 24, 2017 8:05 am by Andlag

Hey everyone,

since I started being sexually active i often experienced burning in my vagina which was often worse during sex /around the time of my period or when using lubricants. I was never able to use tampons because the one time i tried putting them in it felt like acid was poured on my skin. Fast forward to 2 months ago when I got a UTI and an allergic reaction in my vagina. I thought it …

TREAT THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM (still cured btw)

TREAT THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM (still cured btw)

Post  EverythingIsDifferentNow on Sun Jun 25, 2017 10:11 pm

This mostly revolves around unprovoked vulvodynia (since I had it and I'm talking from experience), but it might work for provoked. Not everyone with unprovoked vulvodynia may feel this applies to them.
Hi guys, I've been cured for more than a year now. I've done everything holistically and through months of research. I am confident the majority (if not all) cases of vulvodynia victims have kidney issues/sensitivities and may have an underlying chronic disease they don't know about. Chronic illnesses include diverticulitis, celiac, ezcema, any autoimmune condition, and so much more. If you don't know, look at the simple things. Do you get dandruff a lot, do you have bad body odor, do you have a lot of gas, are you lactose intolerant?  Why do I say this? Everything is connected. If there's even one organ of your body that contains high levels of toxicity, chances are 3 other organs and probably your whole body is affected. This sets off imbalance, and imbalance is everything vulvodynia stands for.  If you have chronic illness, that means your body is in a state of toxicity/acidity, and is more unable to get rid of the toxins that have accumulated in your body since you were born/started to develop the illness. Since curing vulvodynia, I learned I had MANY different diseases going on in my body (almost all chronic illnesses). Don't worry, this is probably not the case for you. What I have is rare, but I just wanted to give you some background info. on me.


When the body is unable to get rid of the toxins that accumulate in your body (in this case, the toxins found in western diet food - processed, GMO, not organic, etc.), then the kidneys aren't fully able to break down the oxalates found even in simple foods like spinach or other high level oxalate foods. Not just that, but acidic foods definitely don't help either (coffee is a biggie). Combine acidic foods in your already acidic body, and high level oxalate foods (or even medium oxalate foods that build up oxalate crystals over time in your body- then BOOM, suddenly you wake up and get a horrible acidic feeling down there -happened to me) and you get the worst disease I myself have ever experienced. The other 7 diseases I have are absolutely fine compared to this nightmare and that says a lot, and that's the only reason why I STILL go on here once in a blue moon to give insight to women/girls out there who were in my terrible shoes long ago.


Solutions? First and foremost, get rid of those oxalate crystals (which are basically acidic crystals) through calcium citrate or calcium/magnesium supplement. Take it EVERYDAY. You will not feel cured immediately, especially if you have a bad case of vulvodynia. For me it took maybe 2 weeks to see improvement, then a month in I felt a lot better. However, take it continually at least for 3 months. In conjunction with this, stop taking acidic foods/beverages like coffee, try to cut out high caffeine drinks like black tea, eat organic as much as possible (with all the research and books I've read, I'm convinced the food in western society is poison and responsible for most diseases today), eat a mainly alkaline diet (this diet greatly soothes the body) and DESTRESS. I didn't think stress was a big deal and dismissed it first coming here, but lemme tell you, it's a pillar of health. It can literally save you from death. Yoga helped me a lot, especially ab workouts.


Recommendations include enemas, liver tonics, prebiotics/probiotics, yoga/saunas, and removal of gut irritating foods. This changed my world around. My mind feels more at peace than ever.


Most western doctors aren't trained in vulvodynia. They are trained in giving patients pharmaceutical drugs to treat the symptom of the problem, which literally makes no sense, since the symptom is the body's natural way of healing itself. This absurd thinking usually ends up making the problem worse/causes confusion and stress in patients. Been there, done that. Been called "crazy...it's just a yeast infection. Here's a $500 cream that doesn't even work. affraid "...ya right. Don't worry, nature is here to help (and cheaper  Razz ).


If you are not your own doctor, you're a fool. -Hippocrates


While you're at it, you might want to address if you have any other health problems. Anything is impossible. The word impossible has "I'm possible". Hope this helps. sunny sunny sunny

I really like your approach to this, I do think STRESS can cause inflammation and a million other diseases. ALso doing Yoga is very clever to add to this. I've read that if you have central sensitization (meaning nerve pain, IBS, TMJ and other pain) then doing sports is considered one of the treatments.

I have read a lot of books on this topic, I do agree that a low oxalate diet and supplements can help or cure vulvodynia.

However western medicine CAN help and without it we would be dead. For me, medication works, and it works very well. I do add mindfulness, magnesium supplements and probiotics to the mix and they do help, however for NEUROPATHY  it's unlikely that one can be cured through detoxes and supplements. Pain occurs in the brain, that is why we need to take these medications. If you search for some users here, they have had remission from vulvodynia using Lyrica or others. Myself included. They don't mask the symptoms, their point is to interrupt pain signals so they don't become permanent.  you can research this theory. It's about nerve memory. Medications do work for some, as vulvodynia can have very different symptoms from one person to another. I don't know how much GMO is present in UK foods, I've never heard of GMOs cause burning pain or nerve symptoms, maybe it can happen, but to say that your solution works for everyone is sending the wrong message.
