  • Car Trip through Europe.....

    Dear All,

    to everyone who has done long car trips with IC/Vulvodynia.
    I will be going on a 1.5 months car trip through Europe and wondering how i can prevent to get more pain in my vulva area and bladder? Does a special pillow help?
    Also i have been having weird lower abdominal pain..well more like a pressure...and a stitch on my left side. Does anyone have that? I havent had it before. It started yesterday. And i am suuuuuupppper tired...
    Would love to hear from you....hope to get some good tips....scared that my ic/vulvodynia will get worse from sitting in the car soooo long for sooo many days....
    I dont worry about going to the toilet...bought a camping toilet already

    Cheers...from England....
