MAY HAVE FOUND A CURE- PLEASE READ

Thu Feb 15, 2018 10:04 pm by infinitelywondering

Dear all,

Today has been the day I've been waiting for. The day something FINALLY makes sense.
I've been told countless times that I've got nerve damage or a muscular condition, yet none of the specific treatments have helped me. My GP suggested attacking this from a different angle so referred me to a dermatologist specialist


after having a vestibulectomy with no success, I decided to visit …

Looking for a friend..... and new problems

Sat Jan 06, 2018 11:38 pm by infinitelywondering

Hi everyone,

I hope you're doing well.

I hate to say this, but I feel beaten down and terribly alone. I had a vestibulectomy surgery about 6 months ago and I was absolutely praying it would work. It didn't.

6 months later and here I am, sitting on my bedroom floor crying my eyes out because I know I'll never be able to have painfree sex. I don't know what to do and just need a friend Sad

Newbie to the site

Sun Jul 30, 2017 12:16 am by Ksa

Hello. Thank you for this wonderful site. I'm currently under the care of a dr in Phoenix that specializes in vaginal disorders. I will probably be on a suppository of estridol the rest of my life and I am currently on medications for a rare form of vaginitis that's pretty unheard of for my age. My vagina literally hates me. I've struggled with vulvadynia for 20 years, the duration of my …

Vulvodynia from #metoo media coverage

Thu Jan 25, 2018 9:01 pm by dooleyhornberg

I am wondering if anyone else in this forum has experience an increase or flare up in their vulvodynia as a result of the coverage of the sexual abuse scandals in Hollywood, DC, and the recent gymnastics scandal. I have definitely had a flare up.

So frustrating!!

Thu Jan 04, 2018 1:15 am by Hannah77

Well I'm back in pain after 7 years of pain free days.
I was diagnosed with vulvodynia when I was 17. I suffered for three years with horrible burning all day, painful sex with my boyfriend and just pure misery Sad I went into a spontaneous remission when I was 20. I'm still not sure how the pain stopped but all the sudden I could go an entire day without thinking of my vagina, sex started to …

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 there,

After years of being misdiagnosed etc as most women have on this forum I have finally been diagnosed with vulvodynia (yay) and have been given the lowest dose of an antidepressant called Amitriptyline. Has anyone been on this before and has any positive (or negative) news to give me? Im feeling down already and I've only been taking it for a few days, I don't have much hope of it …

Did anyone know something about this treatment outside of Germany? I think Vulvodynia pain could be comparable to this kind of neuropathic pain.

I live in the US. i read your post. i have never heard of this treatment. however, i am having something similar implanted into my spine this summer. it's called a neurotransmitter (aka spinal cord stimulator). the docs will implant to wires (leads) in my spine w/ a battery connected to it. I will have a remote control to control the vibrations to the nerves. the vibrations are supposed to interrupt the pain message to the brain. i will have a one week trial (surgery, but battery will be on outside). if the surgery is successful then i will have the wires and the battery permanently placed under my skin. the treatment you found sounds similar.

Hi Jules,
yes I think this is the same basic. My wife is having the same type of problems like you. After the Botox did not work, she only took Ami but it did not work during the last months too. Actually she is trying Lyrica and Cymbalta but this seems to be a really bad flare up.
The difference to the permanent therapy you are going to get is that the nerves will be finally destroyed. This sounds good, but not if other functions will be harmed too. However, we did not contact this clinic so fare. But please keep me informed about your experiences.

Sounds like a possibility as for some this all started with infection. The idea that the infection stays within the nervous system is interesting.

Jules please post when you get this treatment. Thanks x

I am not a doctor, but I think Herpes zoster virus infection as reason for this neuralgic pain disease (and what they treat with this method up to now) can be easily identified and is not a part of Vulvodynia related pain. However the result, strong pain signals due to a structural change of nerves are obviously similar. They claim a 70% pain reduction by this method but I think they never have done this for Vulvodynia patients. I have to leave this decision to my wife, but I think we will get in contact with this clinic and I will keep you informed.

husband,

question: If your wife proceeds with this treatment, would her nerves be permanently destroyed? My surgery will not destroy the nerves. However, in the past, I had four different nerve blocks. Two were in the Pudendal Nerve. I was told that if the blocks took away the pain, the docs would be able to perform a surgery that involves the cutting (laser) of the Pudendal nerves. I am not a candidate for that surgery because it wouldn't help me. I had no relief from the nerve blocks.

I will keep you all updated on my Nuerotransmitter surgery. I am waiting to hear from the clinic. My health insurance needs to authorize it first. Smile

They try to stimulate the nerves in order to define the right ones. After this there will be a permanent destroying.

My wife changed the medication. At the moment with Ami and Lyrica, she is o.k.. However the electrode is still an option.

Good luck for your surgery.
