Constant pain, I want to die.

Fri Jun 02, 2017 4:29 am by Meggiemay

I posted on here a few years ago but my symptoms went away with the inflammation. I didn't get so lucky this time.

For over three months, i've had terrible rawness, burning, soreness in the urethral/vestibule area and pressure/hypersensitivity in the clitoral area. I've also had some lower abdominal pressure and burning on my butt. I can barely walk! My gyno hasn't been much help. I'm on …

Clitoris Issues

Tue Apr 28, 2015 8:17 pm by January

I am going crazyyy trying to figure out what's wrong. Please does anyone else have an issue similar to mine? I'm only 22. So, basically when my clit is lightly rubbed, there is no feeling. However, when rubbed vigorously and directly, the burning and tingling sensations shoot down my legs and feet as if coming to the end of an orgasm but with no good feeling leading up. It's so strange. What …

Hi ladies. I am new to the forum. I have had what I think is vulvodynia caused from hsv 2. So not only do I have the burning vag but the constant feeling of being contagious. I can honestly say that I hate my life and myself right now. There are days when I think I would rather be dead. I tried the amitryptline and it helped but if it's only making my brain think I don't have pain then it's …

Tue May 02, 2017 6:18 pm by jen007

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I've written a new topic on the forum. Wondering if any of the same ladies are still here. I've come back to update you all on my post vestibulectomy results. I can't remember if I've done an update on my current state, so forgive me if this is repeated information... I can't remember how to view my old posts! Anyway, let me get on with my update.

For 4 years post …

Recovered from Vulvodynia

Thu May 04, 2017 9:42 pm by chancesunny

Hey everyone,

Im a new member on this forum and wanted to share my story so I can help anyone who is feeling helpless. Maybe what worked for me can work for you. I'll try to make this short so you can go get better!

I had vulvodynia for about 3-4 years. In the beginning, it started with pain that I thought was just a yeast infection and then I thought it was a urinary tract infection or …

New here, my story and looking for advice

Wed Apr 26, 2017 9:02 am by rachiecakes

Hi All!

I was really hoping to get some feedback from everyone here - it's very hard dealing with an issue like this because no one really understands what I'm going through!

Im 28 years old I've had interstitial cystitis for 3 years - but never an vaginal issues. About 6 months ago I got a yeast infection following a course of antibiotics - similarly I developed IC after a bad UTI. The itching …

New w/ Secondary Provoked Vestibuldynia

Wed Apr 26, 2017 11:46 pm by Birdy

Hi everyone,

I'm here because I'm pretty sure I have secondary provoked vestibuldynia, even though my gyno is still "optimistic" it is not.  My problem started six months ago when I got my second UTI in as many months (after going 25 years of life without one) and then ended up with a bad yeast infection (also my first one ever) thanks to the antibiotics.  Ever since the yeast …

Hello!

I am a 25 year old guy who has erectile dysfunction following an injury a few years ago. I am here because I think that men and women with sexual dysfunction could benefit from dating each other. My experience has been that women have lost interest when they found out that penetrative sex was not possible with me.
So I am interested in learning more about female sexual disorders. Do young …

New Here: Question/My Story

Mon Apr 03, 2017 2:00 am by overit14

Hi everyone. I came across this site by Googling "vulvar pain support". I feel like my case is different than most I read about so I was wondering if anyone else here experiences this in the way that I do.

This started in 2012 and has happened off and on since. I get really, really red and it's very painful, swollen and burns. Sometimes it may be a little itchy, but mostly it just …

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.
