So I'm laying here awake for the third night in a row. But am trying to make sense of it all. I have noticed that whenever my vulva pain is bad, I have a pins and needles/burning sensation on the bottoms of both of my feet. I Googled the pins and needles and found that people had sciatica or some lower back problem.....my vulvodynia began after giving birth (my first and only)....the last month of pregnancy was excruciating lower back pain, where walking became nearly impossible. Then when giving birth, it felt like my back was breaking. I could then barely walk for 3 weeks afterwards....so my question is, has anyone found that lower back trauma caused the vulvodynia for them??? And in turn, solving the lower back pain elevate the vulva pain??

sounds like it could be pudendal neuralgia: http://www.beyondbasicsphysicaltherapy.com/our-services/pudendal-nerve-neuralgia

maybe physical therapy would be a help to you. I loved physical therapy (for general pelvic floor dysfunction) and felt like it gave me so many great insights about my body and exercises and tools that I still use and benefit from to this day. so I would be inclined to suggest starting there! I know there are also some kind of nerve block injections that are supposed to be effective for pudendal neuralgia. I don't know a ton about that but you could start the conversation with your doc and go from there.

be well! keep us posted!

I had lower back pain and excruciating coccydnia when my vulvodynia started ... both these symptoms have dissapeared mysteriously

I doubt you have pudendal neuralgia like the above user suggests, that is only a possibility if you had severe tearing during birth.

When you start having pain somewhere in your body and this pain expands or moves around it's a sign of central sensitization. You can look it up. It can be treated using exercise and medication like amitriptyline or pregabalin.

You can also try seeing a physio. Yes, there are some nerve roots which travel from the back and end up in the vulva region, so they are related. It is possible to get, for example, a nerve block likke a caudal epidural and kill two birds with one stone: back pain and V.

See a doctor first and get their opinion. Maybe a neuro ?

I have to just say... This being my second time having vulvodynia, the pain in my feet is much worse this time. If I am up on them for any length of time, and I usually am due to my job, it genuinely feels like I have been jumping up and down on concrete all day. Amitriptyline never really helped me. Sad
