Despite treating my LS since January I still experience pain in the form of burning, stinging and tension/tightness in the vulva. And basically a heightened state of awareness/hypersensitivity of the area. I went on Dr Goldstein's website and read that 79% reported chronic vulva pain. Chronic I'm assuming that they have persistent pain despite treatment with steroids?
I spent almost 7 years on an antidepressant for generalized anxiety only to fear I'll have to take something again to manage this ongoing pain which I fear will never stop. I've read women can develop secondary vulvodynia from LS. Sorry if I sound a little down but it can get tiresome. Appreciate this forum as I've gained lots of valuable information and able to vent my frustrations. But does it ever get better?
