Hi. I hope you will be able to help me. For some time I have had peripheral neuropathy in my feet due it was thought to my autoimmune disease. About a year ago I began to feel swollen in my perineal area. First I was given treatment for thrush but the swab was negative. GP said there was nothing to see. Next visit another GP gave me some cream ..?Sylph . Next visit oestrogen cream. By this time my perineum was burning....mostly in the evening and also felt v swollen. Next an internal vaginal exam as I wondered if I had a prolapse because of the pressure. All normal. Cortisone cream.
All the time the burning sensation in both areas is getting worse.
I had a spinal scan last year which showed a spondylolisthesis and a generally tatty spine......but I am 72 !
Where should I go from here. Ten minute GP appointments just don't do it.
Sorry this is so long but I felt I nearly set fire to the bed last night and am getting a bit desperate.
