Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
Are any females in the US coping with Pelvic Floor dysfunction, Vulvadynia, Clitordynia? I was recently diagnosed with Pelvic Floor Dysfunction and have had some therapy but my insurance is fighting me so hard. On August 4, 2011, this agonizing pain began and has signifcantly progressed to the entire vulva area both inside and out. I am in constant, agonizing, burning, seering pain! I only have relief when taking sitz baths or soaking in Epsom Salts. I have only had one physician in my area to say that he believes I have “real” pain. I recently discovered a letter in my files stating that the GYN nurse practictioner thought I needed a mental evaluation, after telling me she would be there for me and help me through this horrible ordeal. When I initially asked her if I might have Vulvadynia, she had never heard the disease and I find that many doctors are not aware of it and after seeing me, they just pass me off as the National Vulvadynia Association states that this is what patients will experience. Even though I read this, it doesn’t make it easier to accept. Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this pain and what you might have found for relief or “cure”. I would love to have a moment of relief from this feeling that acid has been poured on my private area and that I just burning. I would love to think that I could sit down in a chair and not have to lie down whenever I rest.
