May 14, 2013 · Back pain in Healthy Living

Have you ever tried Biofreeze? It works a whole lot better than any medication I’ve ever heard of.

If you haven’t tried it, it’s at least worthy of a shot before you opt to go down the surgical route. If you’re not familiar with it, that’s probably because it’s relatively hard to find, and only certain companies are allowed to sell it.

May 14, 2013 · All About Vulvar Varicosities in Women's Health

In most cases, sclerotherapy is reserved for women who suffer from varicose veins in the worst of places, but who are in the small minority who do not develop the condition while pregnant.

May 14, 2013 · All About Vulvar Varicosities in Women's Health

Vulvar Varicosities are varicose veins that develop in a woman’s vulvar region, typically during the course of a pregnancy. They can be very painful, and can lead to intense swelling that can make sexual intercourse a non-starter.

Vulvar varicosities are also among the more embarrassing issues a woman will encounter during pregnancy, leading many women to try their best to get through it without informing their doctor. This is a bad idea.

In most cases, vulvar varicosities can be effectively treated using only compression therapy. A special undergarment designed for vulvar varicosities is worn by the expecting mom, applying constant pressure to the vulva and vulvar region. In most cases, this alone is sufficient to bring about significant relief of symptoms.

In severe cases, a technique known as sclerotherapy may be used to reduce the pain and swelling. Sclerotherapy involves the injection of a foam or liquid into the veins themselves in order to reduce the swelling.

You may want to try treatment by way of compression therapy. There’s a Michigan-based company that makes a product called a V2 Supporter that is used to treat vulvar varicosities. Maybe it would help bring relief to those suffering from vulvodynia.

I can’t promise it will work, but I also don’t know that it’s ever been tried. Here’s the URL: http://www.eganmedical.com/V2-Supporter-p/ormt-v2s.htm

What are you doing to treat the pain? I would never recommend narcotics to anyone except for in extremely rare circumstances, you may want to try a hard-to-find topical (and non-narcotic) pain reliever called Biofreeze ( http://www.eganmedical.com/Biofreeze-Gel-4-fl-oz-p/orprg-busat04-001.htm ).

Seeking Mayo Clinic advice is always a good idea, but I’ve heard from a number of folks that Biofreeze helped relieve their pain better than even narcotic pain killers like oxycodone.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no known treatment for vulvodynia. Let’s just hope progress has been made since I last read about it, or that my sources lack in credibility…
