Looking for a friend IRL; LA/OC

Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:51 am by crypticcalico

Hello!

I am hoping to find a friend in the LA/OC area that I can meet up with in person. I live in Long Beach, California and I am willing to drive a bit to meet. The only person that I've told about this is my doctor(s) and someone who couldn't wrap their brain around it. It would be nice to be able to talk to someone else who understands.

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 …

Hi, I started vulvodyniasupport.com at the age of 28.
I was a leader when there was no help, no forums etc.

As I went on my path, I found acupuncture, herbs and time helped me recover.
Most never do.

I met a wonderful woman named Hanna. She was a patient and became a support leader. She lived in FLoroda.

I have moved on from the support world and found a career that allowed
Me to bring my …

Anyone else try Cold Laser therapy/ Low Level Laser Therapy for their vestibulodynia?

Tue Jul 04, 2017 9:01 am by Tired89

Hello everyone. It's been quite a long time since I've posted. I've been extremely depressed and bottling it all up. I've been seeing a pelvic floor therapist (it's only been 4 visits) for my provoked vestibulodynia and the only reason she can get inside of me to do myofascial release and to use the dilators is because I use BLT (benzocaine, lidocaine, tetracaine) ointment on my vestibule prior …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Losing Hope Big Time

Post  Chelsea1991 on Wed May 09, 2012 11:08 am

Hi, I'm 21 anyway I am losing hope in my treatment i have had at least five tablets none work i am currently on neurontin, I have been on so many stuff i started to lose hope, i dont feel nothing work and worst i feel depressed by this all, i just dont understand how nothing come work, I think i might have ic too which i got another set of tablets, i am thinking about the surgery but scared of it because i am not sure if i can have it as i got provoked vulvodynia, to be truthful i dont even understand that. has anyone had surgery who has provoked vulvodynia or any tablets that work, i am at the stage where i dont want to do how many more tablets can i take as i took around five (It could be four) already. I am getting to the point when i dont want to do them kegel excerises and using my dilators i feel like it no point.

Hi, sorry to hear that you feel so bad. Provoked pain is pain when the area is touched. I have unprovoked pain where it hurts all the time and have tried everything from creams to tablets to injections down there, so I know how you feel having to keep taking things for it all the time, you're not alone. My consultant said to me that often surgery's best candidates are those with provoked pain as it is more effective. I can't explain why because I have forgotten the explanation sorry!! But just wanted to let you know that it might be worth considering surgery as it could help you, but it's generally a last resort and not something to be taken lightly as it holds no guarantees, so the best thing would be to talk through it with a doctor who knows all the facts and can give you proper advice. I have also come across a couple of women that have said that lyrica has helped with their provoked pain. It didn't help me but like I said, mine's different so it might help you if you haven't already tried it. Some also say that tricyclic antidepressants such as amitriptyline helped them, you may have already tried these tablets but if not mention them to your doctor and give them a try. Good luck with finding a solution and don't give up. Also just to let you know that I am 19 and have suffered with this since I was 15, so if like me, you feel that you're too young to be going through this, you really aren't alone. Hope you feel better soon!

Hello,
Please read my post about seeing a chiropractor: http://www.vulvodyniasupportforum.com/t849-i-am-cured-read-this#5393

I have spoken to my chiropractor about surgery for this condition and she does not recommend it at all. She has been in the medical profession for some years and in many cases surgery only makes women with the condition worse. It can actually worsen the pain and is not worth the cost of treatment or the time wasted being bedridden afterwards.

I'm also relatively young to have had this, I'm almost 19 and the pain started about 2 years ago. I know how horrible it feels, there were days when I didn't get out of bed because I felt so hopeless. I really hope you consider looking into chiropractic treatment because it has been a godsend for me. Please don't give up, you still so young and have so many years of happiness ahead of you. Good luck x

Its interesting, the pain I had was in my left foot mainly and travelled up my leg... it shows that everything is linked so theres a possibility that your pain might come from a mechanical problem too. Definitely worth checking out!
I think if you're tight maybe its down to not being relaxed enough, and if you experience pain then it's not surprising you don't feel relaxed!
