  • Wierd buzzing feeling in my privates...any idea why?

    Ok...this is going to sound really strange and I'm hoping that I'm not losing my mind. But the past two weeks (about two weeks into a flare) I started having a wierd buzzing feeling in my public area. It's intermittent, and occurs mainly in the front-- by my public bone. It's not painful...just a really mild buzzing feeling that lasts for a few seconds.

    My only real theory is that I've was falling asleep with the heating pad on that area and I might of freaked out some of my nerves.

    Anyone else have any ideas? or by chance know what I'm talking about?

      Yes, I understand. I get that sometimes. It does feel odd. For me, I don't think it has anything to do with IC. I think it is a nerve misfiring.

      Shopping??? Did someone mention shopping? I'll get my hat... ;-)

      Where I can be found most days.

        Could it be a muscle spasm?

        Galatians 6:2 - Carry each other's burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

        Hebrews 13:2 - Do not forget to entertain strangers, for by doing so some people have entertained angels without knowing it.

            Oh god I have this too! The is part of my vulvodyina and it drives me crazy. It comes and goes and even though its not painful its just really annoying and strange. I agree its just down to nerves and for some reason when we are flaring it also agrevates the nerves which supply the genitals and pubic area.

            My urologist said this is common and a lot of his patients have desribed similar feelings/symptoms.
            As well as this buzzing feeling I also have a throbbing aching sensation and paresthesia which is horrible.
            You are not alone and I am sure it will disapear soon!

            Started with symptoms 2004 after a severe infection.
            Was diagnosed with IC Feb 2006 after cystoscopy.
            Diagnosed with vulvodyina and PN in july 2006.
            Dignosed with ME and IBS Oct 2006.
            Currently taking Amytriptaline 50mg, regular pain killers and birth control!
            Also doing IC diet and regular use of heat packs.
            Still struggling with IC and controling my symptoms so looking for some help

            also recently had abnormal pap, CIN III and just had LEEP done 2007

              Thanks everyone. It does make sense that my nerves in that area were somehow aggrivated by this most recent flare. KJD, thanks for sharing the info. from your urologist. It does make me feel better.

                So that's what the nerve thing was!

                I experienced a very similar feeling when pregnant with both my boys at the beginning of the 2nd trimester. I'd wake up in the morning and a nerve right on top of my pubic bone would sting and hurt like crazy. It was almost like someone was sticking a needle into a nerve there and literally twisting it around. The pain only subsided after I got up and walked around for about 30 minutes. Now I know what to call it (although I'll never be pregnant again!). Ouch!

                -Bladder surgery to correct reflux-'68
                -Terribly painful periods, [email protected] 13 (most likely due to endometriosis, no dx then)
                -4 gyn surgeries since 2003 to remove cysts, ovaries, endometriosis and uterus
                -DX'd w/I.C. before 3rd gyn surgery, but sure I've had it since childhood
                -Gastrointestinal allergies to nuts and shellfish - {I would like to know if there is some connection of gastro allergies to I.C.?}
                PTSD (sexual abuse by teenage boy when I was 4 and s. abuse by adult male who was friend of my Dad's - my parents still don't know)
                -DX'd with IBS in 2000
                -Rhabdomyolysis in 2001 (has not returned)
                -DX'd with Eosinophilic Esophagitis (Asthma of the Esophagus) 3/07
                -DX'd with TMJ in 2000-wear splint
                -Hydrodistention and Cystoscopy w/ biopsy of tissue in bladder-2003
                -DX'd with Epilepsy -2000
                -SSS (Selective Sound Sensitivity)-wear earplugs most of the time to screen out certain noises
                -DX'd with Fibromyalgia (2006)
