i dont really know where to start.
i suffered crippling vulva pain for 8/9 years, to then find out i had genital herpes. i was put on acyclovir but didnt help, i dont really have blisters or anything that i can see but i have burning pain/throbbing/stinging when weeing. i suffered this for years without knowing i had genital herpes. wasnt a day without pain. coldnt do anything without it being painfull.
Id like to know if anyone has similar symptoms cause of genital herpes?
i was put on gabapentin as doc said it is used for herpes ect, great news is that it completely stopped the pain.
BUT bad news is that i suffered very badly mentally being on this drug, thought i was losing my mind. i was in a very dark place & was only on it for 2/3 months. i was sectioned for a few weeks too. i stopped the gabapentin & have been off it for a year now, after stopping it i still had no pain for a year.. until about a month ago, the pain is back. im apsolutely gutted!!
ive just started feeling better mentally & dealing with things properly. but now the pain is back i am in a big rutt & dont know what to do, in 8/9 years the gabapentin was the only thing that stopped the pain. but it put me
in such a dark place mentally.
i dont know what id prefer, the pain? or no pain but mental side effects from
gabapentin. Is there anyone that can help me? maybe some advise?
or maybe someone that has been through a similar situation?
id appreciate any feed back.
