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 …

Hello!

Has anyone gone to a Pain Management doctor at Cleveland Clinic - Weston, FL? My primary care doctor (the only doctor that actually pays attention to my whole body, not just one disease/affliction) told me that the city I live in is too small to have a facility that could work through all of the nerve, back, V pain I have and suggested I go to Mayo Clinic or Cleveland Clinic. Mayo really didn't seem to have anyone that knew about V, so I crossed that one out. Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland had a couple of people that worked with V. But as I was looking at doctors, I saw that there are some in Florida that list V as a specialty. Florida is much closer for me (I live in Alabama).

Of course, I have seen other doctors that list V as a specialty, but the minute you sit down and tell them what is going on, they suddenly realize that maybe V should not be listed under the specialties they treat - so it's always a crap shoot.

I guess, as usual, the answer is no. There is no help out there, is there?

Sinclair Sassy,

That is simply not true. There’s certainly HELP out there, it’s just whether it can cure you. Everybody is different and th cause of Vulvodynia can be different so of course not all treatments are going to work. It’s about trying to look positively on what is (as we all know) a very negative situation. When I started looking positively about things I started to feel a bit better- obviously not cured but just happier in myself.

I think it’s alwaus good to try and be as positive as possible especially on a forum where so many others are suffering and it’s perhaps not always the best to send out a negative message. Keep fighting and you’ll get there one day- we all will.

This forum in itself is help. There’s physio. Antidepressants for nerve pain. Lidocaine. Surgery. Diet. Biofeedback and dilators. Aloe Vera feel. Steroid creams. Pelvic floor exercises. Botox injections. Laser therapy

That’s to name just a few^

Keep going and don’t lose hope

I wish I had seen this sooner! Yes I've been to Cleveland clinic in Westin but chose to stay with my private doctor Dr. Trabin in west palm beach who is affiliated with Cleveland. If you can go to him hes an absolute God send, but the doctors at Cleveland were top notch also! I just prefer private practice. Dr. T did my vestibulectomy and I have no complaints. If you have questions, feel free to directly message me aa I'm not on here anymore much.
