I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

Diagnosed Recently

Hi All,

I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

So this is my story:-

I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

New and need advice and help

Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

Hi everyone,

About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

MonaLisa Touch

Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

Hi All,

I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

Looking for suggestions or encouragement

Sat Jan 13, 2018 12:10 am by ryn207

Hi there. I'm 25 and have been dealing with this for over a year and a half and I'm really starting to lose hope this will ever stop.

In July of 2016 I had a yeast infection. When Monistat didn't work I went to my gynecologist who prescribed Diflucan. When the itching didn't stop she retested me and found that my yeast infection was gone, but I now had a bacterial infection. After taking the …

Hi lovely gals!

I'm honestly hoping to get any bit of advice anyone might have to offer. I go from bouts of sobbing hysterically in my boyfriend's arms to feeling confident that I can beat this.

I haven't been actually diagnosed with vulvodynia but EVERYTHING under the sun has come back negative. I started having sex 4 years ago after starting Lo Loestrin, with my first and current boyfriend …

Anyone else have burning on the front of thighs?

Anyone else have burning on the front of thighs?

Post  Hopeitworks on Sun Aug 13, 2017 2:20 am

10 yrs ago when my vulvodynia first started I had intense burning skin sensations on the front of both thighs. It almost feels like sunburn. Over the years it's calmed down a lot and it only bothers me once in a while. Anyone ever feel this?

My vulvodynia is unprovoked, but I had a Vestibelctomy and my V is doing great.

I do think I have PN nerve damage.

Thanks in advance for sharing!

I had the burning sensation also. I had it around inner highs, and right under my bum cheeks, also vulva area. I then seemed to get sciatica shortly after. My pain had got alot better but I still have bad days, I think mine is nerve related I had a fall on my bum/Tailbone and the next morning this occurred. Have you any suggestions how to manage the burning xx

I'm going to a neurosurgeon tomorrow. I will let you know what I find out. What treatment he recommends etc;

I have always believed my Vulvodynia is caused by some type of nerve damage.

With those symptoms it sounds as though you have pudendal neuralgia and not vulvodynia any longer. the same treatment applies and you can also get nerve blocks for it

it's hard to prove it's nerve damage. I was able to come off my medication alltogether and had 1 year and 4 months of no symptoms. I basically had full remission. I doubt nerve damage would act that way as the moment you quit the medication you get the pain back ....

The pain in front of the thighs is just referred pain and not an evidence of nerve damage. when I saw my pain consultant 4 years ago she simply told me I have sensitized nerve endings from frequent bartholin cysts.

I have never had bartholin cyst. So what causes my referred pain? I'm just worried if I don't treat the nerve Vulvodynia will come back. I'm almost 5 weeks post op and V feels ok. A few flare ups with a little stinging but it doesn't last. I think I could live with the burning sensation on my thighs. But not if it cause v pain or clitoril pain.

https://www.physio-pedia.com/Referred_Pain



Referred pain can be from any nerve irritation at one site, but because nerves "talk" to each other, you can feel pain at a site that seems to not have any connection to the original injury or irritation. for example I used to have coccyx pain and pain in my toes from V.

5 weeks is very early however, so it actually sounds pretty good for the time being Smile

i'm sure the referred pain you get will go away with time

Mary Jane I would love to pick your brain all day lol. Your full of knowledge! I love it! Thanks I'm just going to stop Googling it for now and hopefully that will ease my anxiety. The internet scared me by saying if nerve pain is NOT correct it could result in genital arousal syndrome! I don't want that!!!!! So I googled that and oh my it scared me because sometimes I get tingling on my clitoris for no reason. Doc said the tingling is from V. Maybe I'll go back on Gabapentin. Idk....

Persistent genital arousal syndrome is incredibly rare, a lot more rare than V. I used to have buzzing and tingling everywhere as well !

If this helps, you can try to start drinking valerian and sleepy tea Smile I found that this and magnesium helped me . anything that calms down the central nervous system will help and even eradicate nerve pain (alongside traditional treatment like medication or pelvic phisio)

I've had remission and relapse from V by now so I've learned a lot by reading forums like neurotalk and ones on fibromyalgia. They seem to be related, fibro and V.

Mary jane,
I probably overreacted and don't have presistent genital arousal. Especially since so many with V have tingling in clitoris. Thanks for your suggestions I'll try them.
