I was finally diagnosed with vulvodynia in 1990! Before that I saw a therapist "it had to be a psychological..." Dr. John Willems & Vulvar Pain Foundation provided the information to save my sanity. I have been in remission periodically but recently with menopause and stress it's back. Crania-sacral therapy and addressing the pudendal nerve did give some relief. So, if this and other information helps you on your journey please let me know. For external vaginal relief (itching/burning),I highly suggest Boiron Calendula Ointment (not the gel or cream). The journey to complete wellness continues.
