    Amtriptyline, baclofen, gabapentin cream for provoked vestibuldynia

    Mon Nov 20, 2017 8:15 pm by WVR00

    Hello,
    Has anyone had success with this cream in helping their vulvodynia? How long has it taken to help? I’ve had some success with it, but not completely better. I’ve been on it for a month. I️ was hoping to hear from some ladies who have had major success with this cream. I’m hoping for some encouragement here. This condition is so frustrating. I’m lucky enough to have access to two …

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 …

    New diagnosis, any advice whilst I wait for a specialist

    Wed Oct 25, 2017 1:47 pm by Julesyjules

    Hi,

    I'm new here and wanted to ask for some advice whilst I wait to see a specialist nurse.

    After urinary problems which lasted 7 weeks, I finally saw a urologist, who on examination discovered significant inflammation and called in a gynaecologist, who diagnosed vestibulitis. They referred me to a nurse who specialises in vulvar skin issues. That was 5 weeks ago, and I'm still waiting for the …

    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 everyone. I have recently been diagnosed with unprovoked vulvodynia and would really appreciate some advice and support. I have had a chronic urine infection for 16 months and was on antibiotics for 9 of those months.

    Recent "Poke" Pain - So Confused/Losing My Mind

    Thu Oct 12, 2017 9:26 am by kelseybeth23

    Long Story, but I am losing my mind and getting really depressed, so if I tell the full story maybe someone can help me.

    Back in August I started to get an itch down there. Normally, in the past, when this would happen, I would change the way I wore my clothes, take more baths instead of showers, and use Monistat. This time, after about two weeks of no relief, I started to get concerned. I was …

    Hi All,

    what about this? chiro

    Post  grassy on Thu Jul 21, 2011 8:48 pm

    I go to the chiro three times a week for a bad neck. So everytime i go he adjusts my low back, pelvis sacrum, everything. Ten years, three times a week. Can anyone be more looked after then me? how could i have a pelvic floor thing? so i asked him, and he said No, he didnt think so. Not that he is right either. But if anyone ever wants to know anything about chiropractic, ask away. I know alot and practically live there at the chiro's. But i can say one thing. It doesnt help with v pain. Or he would fix it, to shut me up! cindy

    Firstly Cindy a Chiro saying you don't have PF spasm without looking isn't going to know the answer! Nor is a chiro likely to know even if he looked as it's the territory of a womens health physio, physios deal more with muscles and soft tissue than chiros so I wouldn't just take that as your answer. Secondly I was actually in physio doing exercises given to me by this physio when my pelvic floor reached total spasm and I developed V, I asked this physio about it and she told me to get some weighted cones to strengthen my pelvic floor which was the total opposite of what I needed. Again it's the territory of a women's health physio not a bog standard physio, chiro or osteopath. I don't see why there's a problem in going and getting your pelvic floor checked out? No-one can tell you for certain if it's tight or not without testing it but I have just read another of your posts where you describe UTI type symptoms with no infection present and that can be a tight pelvic floor irritating the bladder and urethra. You have nothing to lose by going and getting checked out and as the neck and sacrum are connected in lots of ways this might turn out to be why you've been in chiro for so long. Give it a go, if it's not tight then you'll know for sure and if it is it might be the answer to getting rid of your V.
