I'm feeling really low right now and was wondering if anyone could help me. I have had vulvar burning for the past 14 months. When it started.. I was sexually active at the time. I remember getting a yeast infection which was confirmed by a swab. I took the diflucan that was prescribed but I remember thinking it was odd that the itching eventually turned into burning. Everytime I had sex the burning would start about 6 hours later and would be intense but it would eventually subside. I eventually ended that relationship. I couldn't to have mild burning that slowly resided after about 6 months. (I also had gentle pelvic floor therapy at the time, too). In May, 2014 I got into a relationship and we became sexually active 4 weeks after that. Soon after the burning came back but instead of subsiding it remained. I tried pelvic floor therapy again but it did not help. I have not had sexual activity in about 2 months and the burning is still there. We eventually broke up over it and I'm still crushed. Some treatments I have tried: various anti-convulsants, anti-depressants, lidocaine ointment (ouch), gabapentin/baclofen/amitryptiline cream, testosterone oil. I also had a prudendal nerve block which did not help. They are suggesting blocks in the vulvar area which I have to wait until next month to try this. After that they are suggesting I go out to Washington DC to see the Specialist out there. Does anyone know if they do a test to determine how active the nerves are in the vestibule area? I thought I had read this somewhere? Can anyone suggest any other ideas? I also have chronic facial pain so I don't know if this is central nervous system related.
