Hi, hoping to gain some light on pain that I have been getting as doctors seem a bit stumped / keep giving me the run around.
Around 2 months ago I started getting a random acute burning feeling in my left labia that would get worse at night and worse sitting down. I never got down to the bottom of this issue, saw many doctors however many of them pointed me in the direction of skin irritations/soap/allergies etc which I was quite confident it was not. Anyway this pain was constant, sort of like a sunburn but on my labia, and in one place. I took many tests that all returned negative and the area was visibly normal - bar a bit red. I started doing a few stretches a day but nothing radical, and the pain seemingly went away after a month. I'm not sure why that was to be honest - although not complaining!
Anyway, since then I have started getting sciatic pain. This involves burning in my lower buttocks, down my left leg and in my lower back. Sometimes the pain is a tingling or crawling sensation, and otherwise feels like a sunburn. This has been the past 3 weeks, and during this time, the burning feeling on my labia has also made a bit of a comeback, along with some vulval tingling which again, is mostly on the left side. It is not as intense as the first time, however it is definitely the same burning pain, and in the same place. I'm confident that the pain has something to do with my nerves, however I am really stumped as to what may have caused it and whether these nerve issues are related at all! I am healthy, injury and accident free.
Has anyone had any experiences like this? Any tips or stretches? I have had little luck with physios and doctors, maybe I'm yet to stumble across the right one, as I feel like I have gained most of my knowledge about pudendal neuralgia, sciatica and vulvodynia online. The pain seems relatively constant, and not provoked by standing/lying etc however sitting makes the vulval pain a bit worse...
Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks!
