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 …

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 …

hey, I did this

Post  grassy on Tue Jul 17, 2012 8:26 pm

Hey you guys, I'm a member here, but rarely post. This is what i did. And I am alot better. NOt totally cured, but not crying all the time. I took diflucan, one per week for ONE year! my story all started with one yeast and the burning never left. I was desperate. But anyways, my primary doc put me on diflucan. One per week for as long as i needed. I talked with all kinds of people, And we just guessed that maybe it was a yeast hypersensitivity issue. I'm not a doctor, and i wouldnt do this unless supervised by one. But it did help, and it did take that long too. Long long time. my theory is, that the diflucan kept the yeast down, lessening the hypersensitivity. Long enough for the skins to semi heal and some of the pain to leave. Like i said i'm not cured from the vulvodynia, but am able to think about something else besides the pain. Basically the diflucan didnt bother me much either. But it does have a tendancy to increase v discharge. Hope that helps someone. Maybe something to talk over with your doctors. cindy

Diflucan

Post  Rainy Day on Sat Jul 21, 2012 8:39 pm

That's interesting. I prob couldn't do that since I am so sensitive to 'real' Rx drugs...but it means I am definatly interested in exploring the yeast connection still...

I am so pissed that most of us have to figure out this thing by ourselves. Doctors suck.

grassy, are you still taking the diflucan?
I too did long term diflucan, about 3 and a half years ago. It helped, while I was on it, but once off, it did not keep my symptoms at bay.

Stacy- how long did you do diflucan for?

Post  Rainy Day on Sun Jul 22, 2012 2:44 pm

My doctor only allowed me to do 3 pills for 3 days...and said, "if you aren't better by 3 days, it's not yeast). Grr.....

Interesting

Post  BpCookie on Sun Jul 22, 2012 3:08 pm

This is the second or third story that Ive heard like this. I talked to my Gyno about it and she thought it was interesting and was willing to try it. She said that I may have become allergic to my own yeast . Unfortunately I was only able to try two months of treatment and she ended up leaving the practice. Perhaps I will talk to one of my other Gyno's.

Take care everyone and keep those vagi-gi's cool.

ok you guys

Post  grassy on Sun Jul 22, 2012 6:48 pm

Hi everyone. Ok but I am one of those people who are really sensitve to medicines. I almost died from the sulfa antibiotic that started all this. So with that being said, the diflucan didnt bother me much. I had a male PA who didnt know what to do, so he went along with my idea, and i followed along with another lady who had a very bright V specialist. Her specialist thought it was her body hypersensitive to her own yeast, even if its a normal amount. My opinion on the diflucan? for what its worth. I dont think it is a yeast cure. Its just a help.They market as a one pill cure, but i dont believe that.
One a WEEK FOR A YEAR. Then I was feeling better, and tried to go off it. V flared up. So I went like three weeks with no diflucan, then took another pill. Did that a few times, and now I am basically off it. weaned myself off. I would say honestly that I feel 3/4 better. At least not crying over the pain. Not all the way cured tho. But if you want to try it, do it under a doctors supervision, because diflucan is hard on the liver. Then maybe a person could see how it goes, maybe a few months. But one to three pills Isnt enough. I think yeast gets into the tissues and keeps then burning, but i'm not a doctor. just my secret thoughts.

Ok grassy, we have something in common!

Post  Rainy Day on Sun Jul 22, 2012 10:09 pm

I also had a terrible reaction to my antiobiotic. I took Macrobid for my raging UTI. I had 3 terrible reactions: 1) My blood vessels all over my body hemoraged (petachaie), 2) my ankles became so sore I was limping everywhere for a few weeks, 3) my vaginal, butt, and leg area was burning all over. So, we have something in common...horrible reaction to antiobiotics.

Have you tried a major diet juicing cleanse to to try to rid yourself of all the toxins that a allergic reaction creates? I know some of this antiobiotic must still be bothering me since I still have some light petechaie spots...even though its been 6 months. Normally, petechaie go away in 2 months tops.

Have you tried stretching those muscles at all to try to rid any more of your remaining pain? I only am trying it cuz the butt pain went away...so maybe I was on to something there...

Oh No!

Post  grassy on Mon Jul 23, 2012 8:08 pm

Its not funny, but i'm giggling. We do have that in common. I got hives, and spots and they lasted two years, I became allergic to everything. Even things i used all my life. Like all soaps, deodorant, foods! almost anything. My skin burned all over my body,burned like our v does now. It gave me a horrific yeast. It messed up my internal organs. What a nightmare. My legs had cramps so bad I couldnt walk either. Hey, never take a sulfa antibiotic. NEVER. It would do you in. You know what? my secret opinion is that the antibiotic somehow Burned the v skins? or it was the yeast it caused? But finally on the interent somewhere i saw other people saying that antibiotics can attack skin and maybe ,just maybe, that did happen. Who knows? the medicines are dangerous these days. And the V skin would be the most delicate of all skin on the body. No i havent juiced or tried stretching. But i go to the chiro all the time, and he says he doesnt think its pn nerve. But he could be wrong too! Thats a good idea, maybe i ought to try stretching.

spots

Post  Rainy Day on Mon Jul 23, 2012 9:57 pm

Did they call your 'spots' petechaie too? I also had skin that was irrititated slightly all over my body. There were times I itched all over...times I tingled all over...etc. That has somewhat wore off though. I feel like the antiobiotic 'reset' my entire genetic make-up. I have also made an appt with a natural doctor that is well-known in this area for solving 'medical mysteries'. She will probably pack up her office and move after I come to visit her for some answers!

It is nice to know that you must have had yeast of some sort if Diflucan made a difference. That sort of helps me in my strategy for the next move...although I won't try diflucan right away. besides that, doctors don't want to help me, so they wouldn't prescrive it anyway!

For the exercises, I downloaded the Amy Stein book on pelvic pain. And, I googled some exercises off the internet. My butt pain was completely gone, although my toddler passed his flu on to me today...so I crapped water like 5 times in a row at work...so now I am so scared it will 'flare' things back there again!!! Smile

Did you get pain down your thighs too? That's the worst for me. The vaginal area isn't too bad except my pee hurts when it hits the sides...but I notice its always super acidic.

rainyday?

Post  grassy on Tue Jul 24, 2012 7:21 pm

I have a friend who is a microbiologist, You know, a real brainy smart one. I emailed her right away. She helped me alot. But I love the way you put that. It reset your entire body. Exactly! how I felt. Wow. No i didnt have those kind of spots, I had hives, all over. My skin burned all over. But the hives was something seperate. Two years my one eye would swell up, off an on. My inner stomach parts hurt. I had such a bad pain down my leg(on the antibiotics) . Worst pain i ever had. from the hip, right down to the foot. I went over to a site and looked up the pill. You ought to go over and look up the one you took. Macrobid? I'm going to go look at that one. ASKAPATIENT.COM. Its patient reviews of medicines. Very interesting. The pill I took was bactrim. Horrible reviews, I had every symptom of all the reviews. Even made me have intense panic. You know I have had antibiotics off and on thru life, for tooth things. Never, ever had problems. They are making them nasty these days.
Dont even know if i had yeast? no one would test for it. Lazy doctors. Diflucan, nah, thats a breeze. I was scared of it, but its not bad. Put off taking it for the longest time.
