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- …

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 …

New and need advice and help

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 …

I go in and out of being okay and not being okay with this condition. I question often why me? I am a problem solver by nature and I feel so defeated that after tons of research and trial and error and doctors and tears that there still is no answer.

I am in my 20's.. it shouldn't be this way.

Id love to know what all has worked! I am willing to try anything to get my life back. I am curious if pregnancy has eradicated the condition all together. My gyno said once that he had a patient whose went away completley and that she was pregnant.

Yes, there is an end. I had V for 15 years (3-4 years of flares, 8 years my vagina was too hot, 3 years of flares) All were unprovoked. I'm cured now. I know my healing is rare especially on this forum but it doesn't have to be. The viruses we have aren't fully understand by conventional docs and most alternative ones. They are not super strong. Once you understand them and know how to kill them you'll start making progress. Please check out my blog. I explain everything. I've been helping women for some time now because it's the right thing to do.

Yes, you can make it! I was there, and it was defeating, and horrible, and hopeless - but I was determined to try everything possible, and just keep at it for a while! little by little, with Lidocain, dialators, healthier eating, massage, osteopathic treatment, gabapentin and just working on it consistently for a longer time (took me in total ~1y - 1.5y from when I decided I can and will do it, in total I had it for ~5-6y. I had tried "everything" at some point and was defeated, but then went more steadily and stuck with each thing longer and it started getting better). It can be done, it's frustrating and there might be different things working for you, but it can be done. I almost can't believe it myself to be honest, but I went from not being able to use tampons because of the pain to having pain-free sex. Stick with it, be stubborn! You're the only one who can solve this, and you can do it. Might take a long while, but don't give up!

Do you sill take the gabapentin or are you cured? I worry a lot about the combo of my ambien and gabapentin and what its doing to me. I have never had a great memory to start, and have always been a little clumsy but over the recent years I have been more clumsy and more forgetful.

Frankly though, the gabapentin has given me for the most part my life back. Couldn't have survived this far without it.

Thanks for the inspiration that it can and WILL get better. I am 2 years in with Vestibulitus.

I do not know about pregnancy, whether it will help or not with V. Sounds like your doctor tried to push/lure you into bringing more children into this world. What if your doctor is wrong? You will have a child and you will still be in agonizing pain from V. Not a very nice idea and on top of it, then, you will have to take care of the child.

But i know that trying eating foods, that do not contain high and medium amount of oxalate can totally heal you. I have been there myself with V, i was even bedridden. But i made myself free from all symptoms within about a month! No tablets, no NAET, no acupuncture, no strange or fancy treatments were needed, just a strict low oxalate diet, that's all! I am glad to say now i eat whatever i want and no V.

Just wanted to help, cos it can be done.

Have a nice day.

I don't think my doc was necessarily pushing me that way. I asked him if anyone had ever been cured and he said yes and started talking about a woman who was cured and now pregnant. I think it was my little desperate mind thinking maybe something about a fetus and stem cells could fix me.

I need a ring from the boyfriend before we do all that!

Krista2828, i would not "jump" so fast on a pregnancy wagon. You are still very young. Wait until you and your boyfriend get married first. At lest then, if you and him get divorced, he will support your child. Also i myself would not make a child out of marriage as it is considered fornication.

Best regards.
