    Have you tried the lidocaine(sp?) gel? I have not used it, but heard lots of things about it?

    It looks like it may be a result of nerve damage or something that happens to nerves when you have chornic pain in your case I see you also have endometriosis. Your pelvic floor muscles may be tense too and you have to check that out.

    I do have IC, and have had several tests for infection over the last several months due to the pain (before the IC diagnosis). All were negative. No discharge, either. That's why I was wondering if this was a possibility.

    Thank you for your reply.

    I'm sorry you are having those symptoms. Please see your gynecologist and talk about them if not able to get help with your currecnt one, see a vulvar speacialist. Do you have IC as well?
    Do you have discharge? you may have an infection and that needs to be ruled out first (even though you can have both Vulvodynia and and infection)
    There are treatments not many but they help. See your doctor asap.
    Please kep us posted.
    Hugs

    Not familiar with VV, could I possibly have it?

    I have never really even heard the term before, but with my knowledge of medical terminology, I can at least figure out that it involves pain "down there." Can anyone give me some insight?

    Sorry if this is too much information, btw, as it is very personal. One of the problems that I've had is that lately my pelvic exams have been very uncomfortable, not that they ever are "comfortable," but have been worse than they used to be. As far as sex goes, clitoral stimulation can hurt INCREDIBLY, direct touch will send me through the roof with pain. I have always thought that perhaps my urethra was being touched and that that was what was causing the pain, but I don't really think so. Indirect touching of it doesn't really hurt, but I can absolutely not tolerate it being touched directly. Also, when I have an orgasm, I get pain that I can only really describe as being in the SKIN around my vaginal opening, not very specific, and too low to be considered pelvic pain. I've never really mentioned it to my GYN but am thinking that maybe I should...

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated, I haven't been here very long but everyone here is so knowlegable and insightful!
