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 …

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 …

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,

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.

My story 8 years on

Post  Sunflower82 on Fri Feb 17, 2012 10:34 am

Hi,

Have just joined the group. I have been suffering for the last 8 years but only been diagnosed for just over a year and a half. Like everyone I've seen so many health care professionals and not really getting anywhere. Ive used lodicaine, instillergel, steroid cream, must say lidocaine has saved my life on a few occasions but is not a long term solution. I've been on anti depressants for over a year, I didn't really think they were helping untill I stopped taking them then I realised how much pain I was in. I have been seeing a women health physio therapIist( very hard to find) she works on releasing my pelvic floor muscle, and often women have tension in their tummy muscles which put pressure on your pelvic floor muscles, initally it made the condition worse as I had to do internal massages everyday, which was so painful, after 6 months I was more or less pain free and just able to have sex. I've unfortunately had a Little relapse due to end of term stress( I work in a school) and a little to much trampolining. Trampolining can make things ten times worse. Hope this helps some one

Hi and welcome to the forum! Can I just ask if you have generalised or localised provoked vulvodynia? Can you explain your symptoms a little more?

Thanks!

Rose

Hi, I have generalised Vulvodynia. I suffer with a burning sensation and stabbing pains across my pubic bone. Generally pain all around the vulvar which is hard to pin point where the pain is coming from. I experience lots of burning after I go for a wee this can be an intense pain that can last for hours or just lasts for seconds. I have tension in my tummy muscles and muscles in my bottom which attach to the pelvic floor muscles. I also suffer from cystitis on a regular basis and find sex extremely painful. Physio has helped alot and till recently most of my symptoms had improved so much and most days I was pain free. Last week I have had a really bad relapse. I can only wear jogging bottoms as everything else is too painful.
