Back in the beginning of June 2013 I thought I was getting a UTI so went to the doctor who gave me trimethoprim. This made no difference in fact I then began getting a really bad itching and burning sensation around my genitals. Another doctor prescribed amoxicillin for non specific urethritis...again, no improvement. Went to a GUM walk in centre where they swabbed the area which was red and inflamed, then said HSV (herpes simplex) and give me acyclovir. No improvement, a fortnight later all tests were negative except for thrush so anti fungal s were prescribed. The pain has died down a little but I now have alternating burning sensations where it feels like my vagina is very acidic and pins and needle sensations in my groins and round under my buttocks. Sitting is only comfortable on a round doughnut cushion. Lying down or standing is a preferable option! I have been prescribed low dose amytriptoline but have not taken this so far...side effects look bad! Does this match anyone else's symptom patterns at all? The _Joker
