Hi. My names Tyler.
I have been very badly suffering with what I thought was 'vulvodynia'. This is a chronic illness which involves severe burning pain in the vulva region. I've been suffering with this for 7 years now since I was 16 & can for sure say it has ruined my life. & me as a person. Mentally & physically I'm very damaged because of this. I have attempted to take my own life 4 times because I cannot go through this pain and suffer like this every day on my own anymore. I am still in this mind frame and desperate for help.
I have a severe addiction to morphine because of the pain. Nothing seemed to help with the pain (tramadol, cocodomol) so doctors put me on a constant prescription of that. I have been on it for 5 years but taking it every day for 2. I'm very weak and feel the morphine is doing a lot of damage to me in every which way.
I've now discovered that with a lot of the other symptoms I suffer with I come accross pudendal neauralgia on the Internet the other night & was acrually crying as I was reading all the symptoms of it as they relate to what I suffer/have been suffering with for a very long time In such confusion of what the hell is wrong with me.
This is what I have!! I am awaiting my referral at the pain clinic to ask about treatment and what to do to get Myself better and off the morphine before it kills me.
Please can any one give me as much advise/information/help on what to suggest/do when I get referred. I have seen a few posts about nerve block injections but not to sure if it's worth the try/If it even works??
Thank you for any comments.
