I have posted before many times on this forum but am not sure whether it is the right forum for my problems. I am just going to list some of my main sysmptoms and see whether anybdoy can relate to my problems
For years been suffering from burning senstation down below as if I have got a urine infection but no burning when passing urine and no urgency. Abdominal discomfort for 24/7. The pain is manageable and if I am busy I do not take notice I know it is there and it does not bother me. Sometimes a slight discharge and itching. I usually find out I have vaginal infection by routine test, am not aware of i as I always put the symptoms to AV.I am being seen by a gynae as I did suffer frm slight spotting and am waiting to have a hysterescopy. She did mention intense vulvodynia in her letter to my gp. When I mentioned about AV she said may be as it is quite pale and we did no go any further as she was not interested. Also declined taking hormone cream as they do not agree with me.
Vulvodynia I read some people said even doing an internal is uncomfortable for them. I can tolerate internal or inserting pessaries or intimacy. I still wear leggins or jeans and do not find it uncomfortable although been told it will aggravate the condtion.
Intersistal cystitis.I am wondering whether it is a urologist I need to see. Had blood and pus in urine but culture neg and gp still treat me with antibiotics, UTI about one a year. I am thinking about intersistal cystitis as I am having problem with my bladder not completely emptying. Post micturtion I have to sit on the toilet a little longer and let it dribbles. I also feel something is pressing on my bladder. I do not have any urgency but I usually get up 3 times during the night this is the norm for me. I hope some more experince could offer some advice. I am not sure whether I should have posted three different posts. The symptoms are similar. I feel like a hypochondriac in and out of dr surgery. Thanks.
