Pelvic Pain, Vulvodynia in Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

By January 25, 2013

Follow me on:

Fibromyalgia can cause pain just about anywhere, and many cases of chronic fatigue syndrome involve widespread pain as well. Sometimes, though, pain is from another source that may be related, but still needs to be diagnosed and treated separately.

Chronic pelvic pain falls into that category. It can come from several causes, including vulvodynia, and often it's because the different conditions are part of the same "family" of illnesses.

I had a terrible problem with this during my pregnancies. What I did was wear a close fitting pair of undies and stacked two sanitary pads in the crotch. This applied a back-pressure to the vulva and was very helpful. Now it has returned, I am post-menopausal and will have to return to that aisle in the grocery that I haven’t been in for ten years to see if this works again for me.

For a while I had pain in my crotch and didn’t know what it was from. It also hurt a lot during sexual intercourse.

I went to many doctors and no one knew how to help me. I was finally able to find relief when I googled ‘painful intercourse treatment’ and found a place in my area that specializes in it. I got lucky because there isn’t much treatment out there….
