    Hi I have been suffering for some years with this abominable pain. I have tried most of the systemic drugs , I asked specialists and Doctors if I could at least try a topical treatment but because this requires a special prescription have been refused Has anybody had a chance of trying these? Thank you I will try to put a link on to some of the research into Gabapentin Gel. Thanks.

    Putnams 'bony parts' cushion or Putnams 'Dr Huff' cushion - which is best?

    Sat Aug 01, 2015 4:17 pm by Fielder

    Hi everyone,

    I'm a newbie.  I live in the UK.  

    I'm trying to work out the best cushion to get for my vulvodynia.  I suspect that I could have pudendal nerve involvement (the aching and burning pain is from vagina to clitoris) and I have rectocele and some tailbone pain too.

    I have seen some good reports on older threads regarding the Putnams pressure relief cushions....with some ladies …

    Dear All,

    I posted on here back in March 2017 having just got a diagnosis of vulvodynia after a few months of relentless and acute pain. I was desperate, I was hurting, I was scared I would never know life without pain there again.

    I tried creams, acupuncture, numbing gels, frozen pads, baths with various internet recommended concoctions- convinced myself I had lichen sclerosus, herpes, thrush- …

    hey, im 19, ive been struggling with this almost a year. The first week I became itchy I went in to check about a yeast infection another week later. I have been to 10 different doctors a total of about 15 appointments for this problem for the past 11 months. I have been tested for everything including having a biopsy. I was first told basically to just go home and use hydrocortazone, then I went …

    MonaLisa Touch

    Fri Feb 08, 2019 7:35 pm by rl2091

    Hi All,

    I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the MonaLisa Touch treatment for Vulvodynia? My pain started when I went on HRT(pill) for anxiety mainly and my pain abruntly stopped when I stopped HRT. However, when I started on the HRT patch (at my dr's suggestion), the pain returned and has never left. That was 7 years ago. I found MonaLisa Touch on the internet purely by accident …

    Hi All,

    I’m so glad I’ve found a place where there are others who understand how I feel!

    So this is my story:-

    I’m 36,  and 4 months ago, whilst innocently sitting in bed reading I experienced a very sharp stabbing pain in my clitoris. It last only a few minutes and then subsided as quickly as it came on. It put it down to “one of those things”.  The following morning I woke up …

    Wed Dec 05, 2018 3:26 pm by Cin124

    Hi everyone,

    About three months ago, I started having vaginal and vulval itching. Then, about two months ago, my vulva started to feel painful and look swollen, so I went to the doctor. I was tested for herpes, chlamydia, and gonorrhea which all came back negative. I also had to do a vaginal swab test and the only thing that came back positive was yeast infection. I was prescribed hydrozole …

    Post  tinkerbelle2 on Fri Dec 09, 2016 3:21 pm

    I've felt so so tired, weak & lethargic for about 3 years now and I'm just so fed up.

    I've had the V for 7 years now but I think the tiredness I'm feeling is definitely affected by it / exacerbated by it. I'm only 24 and I just want to enjoy being young and have fun and enjoy life. I'm a positive person by nature but this is a miserable existence. The v hasn't been TOO bad recently, which is great obviously, although it is definitely still there, burning away every day. I think when I have other health problems the V bothers me less which is strange, or I am less aware of it /or maybe I've just developed a higher pain tolerance or got used to it?

    I keep going to the docs about the fatigue and they can't find much wrong - aside for some vitamin deficincies which could contribute plus have had sinusitis.

    I just feel so physically, emotionally and mentally drained and exhausted. My body is so weak and I'm possibly struggling with some depression as well. I have anxiety and worrt a lot which could also be making me tired. Luckily one good thing is, I have no trouble sleeping. I rarely wake up in the night.  I could probably sleep and sleep...That's probably not healthy either. I never wake up feeling refreshed and always have a headache Sad

    Mention fibromyalgia to your GP. Maybe ask for referral to a pain management specialist. Pain plus tiredness could be fibromyalgia.

    You are really young and shouldn't be this fatigued.. I also have had excruciating fatigue this past year, it's usually caused by long term anxiety and vitamin D deficiency..maybe you have this too? Low vitamin D can cause bad exhaustion and needs treatment !

    I use an app called Pacifica, it's for anxiety and stress, it's actually really good !!! They have a few free audios included and I love how it automatically asks you how you're feeling in the evenings. I'm really sorry to hear you are feeling depressed, I struggle with depression too and have recently been referred to mental health team for my anxiety and depression, maybe you can get this too ??

    I wouldn't jump to conclusions about fibromyalgia yet, it tends to have more severe symptoms I think ..

    hope you're well

    Thank you girl. I don't feel that it is fibromyalgia as I've researched it before but I suppose it's always worth ruling it out. Hope you're doing ok xx

    Mary Jane I love you sorry for a very belated reply I've been terrible at replying to messages. Thanks so much,you've always brightened me up. Funnily enough vitamin D is one of my deficiencies so that's interesting! Zinc and iron also. All can cause low energy plus being in constant chronic pain AND being anxious isn't a great mix haha..How are things for you? V wise and mental health wise? How was it with the mental health team? I'm going to start seeing a new therapist. That app sounds good, I will check it out!
