I'm 27 year old single parent and have only recently been diagnosed with vulvodynia.
I contracted a ureaplasma vaginal infection in January, I have since tested negative for the infection but have been left in an awful amount of pain. I went to see a specialist that deals with vulva pain and we think I now have damaged nerves from the infection, which are continuing to give me a burning sensation. I also get a tingly, pins and needle sensation too at times. The burning pain can be anywhere from a 4/10 to a 10/10. Today, and for the last week it has been a 10/10 every day, I think I am having a flare due to taking the morning after pill and my period starting.
I have been prescribed Noritrypltaline, which I have been told to increase the dosage every week. I'm on 20mg atm and feel no different, if anything I feel worse pain wise but that could just be a coincidence.
I'm at a complete loss, i feel depressed, anxious and suicidal. I'm not sure how much longer I can put up with this level of pain. I have a 2 year old and I can barely function throughout the day looking after her.
Please help me.
