I have been aware of new shrinkage and fusion recently which has all happened within a month. Steroid has calmed it down but not unfused me. I had no symptoms (itching or soreness/pain) but it all seemed to happen so fast. My GP told me all looked ok in July. I have seen her today and she still thinks not much has changed and also told me that changes don't happen fast, that LS is insidious and it is just that we don't notice the gradual change. She was happy to refer me to vulval clinic to ease my mind but only because I asked. Appointment won't be for another 6 weeks.
I can't think why I have had this sudden change again when everything seemed reasonable, we were on holiday and I was relaxed. GP asked about the temperature where we were and whether I had been swimming a lot, but I can't see that those things would have brought this on as I swim regularly and heat doesn't seem to affect me.
Has anyone had a similar 'speedy' increase in changes and what have you done about it, if anything?
