Hurting, Burning, Itching, and Worn Out

Thu Aug 09, 2018 10:55 pm by donnambr

This vulvodynia that I'm currently suffering with is so cruel. I hurt, I burn, I itch. When I first got this several years ago, before the internet, I though I was the only one with this awful disorder. Doctors couldn't figure it out. I felt so alone and devastated. Somehow it disappeared for a few years and now I'm suffering again. This dreaded V misery is back and I feel like I will be with …

I'm new to this forum and would love some advice! :)

Tue Jun 05, 2018 4:13 am by anikita

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 …

From a concerned husband

Thu Jul 12, 2018 10:45 pm by ConcernedYorkieHubby

Hello everyone,

This is probably a little unconventional, but I’m a man who is here because his wife has been diagnosed with vulvodynia. The poor girl has been suffering with vulva pain for around 10 years now, and I’ve been by her side through the pain and tears and doctors misunderstandings the whole way, and we’re both exhausted and terrified by the whole experience.

I’m sure a lot …

I'M NEW - Do I listen to my gyno who I feel has it wrong?

Fri Mar 09, 2018 6:17 pm by Tunes25

Hello!

I am a 25 year old woman and wanted to share my story here as I feel frustrated by the suggestions of my gyno and am hoping for some advice.

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 …

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 …

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.
