Herpes (types 2). IC. Vulvodynia.

One year ago I was diagnosed with genital herpes. Two months later I would have a UTI feeling but tests would always come back negative. After much research I have come to the conclusion I have developed IC. Along with the IC I now have vulvodynia. I have had non stop genital irritation, pain, swelling, burning, bladder pain, bladder spasms. I am a 33 year old single female that is starting the think that with all of this happening I will never find a partner :(. I have had constant pain for almost one year. Have been in high doses of valtrex which did nothing, accupuncture, increasing vitamins and minerals, have had blood work done and everything is normal. I do see a homeopath and with everything else he has helped tremendously. But this on going issue I have spent hundreds of dollars and getting no relief.
Does anyone have any suggestions, similar issues??? I am desperate for help....

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
If your existing homeopath has helped, why do you want to consult here.

He has helped with previous issues. But unfortunately so far no help with this current issue. I just spent $350 on my last visit with him to days ago. Usually when I take what he gives me I get some sort of relief instantly but again nothing. Sepia takes the edge off and thats about it. Im also on 5P which isn't giving me any relief. He has me on so many remedies right now....

3. Vulvodynia - swelling of vulva. itchy. raw feeling. redness. burning. painful clitorus.

4. Approximately February 2013.

5. Having sex with ex boyfriend shortly after being diagnosed with genital herpes.

6. When I see the Dr/obgyn and they check the area. As if the open air helps.

7. I feel as if everything makes it worse. Possibly alcohol makes it worse but in April/May 2013 I quit alcohol and no change. Being in Hot tub might make it worse.

8. Dec. 2012 I was diagnosed with genital herpes (boyfriend had herpes) No visible blisters but had other symptoms like flu feeling, low back pain, headache, tiny papercut like cuts on anus, red inflamed. Now when I get what I believe is an OB I get a really bad/weird headache then what i think is a blister on my clitorus. The headache feels like its in the very middle of my brain... like no other headache I get.
August 2013 I was diagnosed with HPV (genital warts). I've had those removed in September but all throughout spring and summer I felt as if something was invading me internally....symptoms EXTREME fatigue. sore finger joints. sore groin lymph nodes. abdominal cramping. white discharge. very itchy. tender clitorus. shooting sensation anywhere from anus to mid thigh, as if a cold pin is on me last for a second. Fatigue and sore joints now gone. Discharge very little and lymph nodes hardly sore now.
Spring/summer I would get UTI feeling. All urine tests would show negative for infection.
Hair is dry brittle falls out.

16. I enjoy being there for people if they are going through a rough time. Sometimes don't know what to say as I don't want to say the wrong thing.

17. I do enjoy being.g alone. But with these recent issues I try to plan outings with friends. Now if Im alone I get more depressed thinking about my symptoms.

#38. *ovulation not population

How do the genitals respond to:

cold application
warm application
pressure

What is OBI?

Please give details of genital warts

Explain in detail:
hopeless e.g. I feel hopeless when I think about this illness that it will not get cured......

similarly,
sad
depressed
afraid
alone
 
fitness 6 years ago
I have never tried color warm application. If I think about using either I feel like warmth would not feel good and the cold would feel better. So I will try a cold application tonight.
Pressure is a little uncomfortable.

OB meaning out break.
*Now when I get what I think is an out break I get weird headaches...

Genital warts, one was cauliflower like at the bottom right side opening of the vaginal hole and two flat ones on the right inner labia minora.

I feel hopeless as if there is nothing out there to help me feel better and that I have to live with this uncomfortable burning swelling pain for the rest of my life... its becoming very depressing.

Also, when my groin lymph nodes get sore sometimes its just the left side and when my vulva is swollen its more so on the left side.
 
musucgirl 6 years ago
Please explain 'afraid' and also 'alone'
 
fitness 6 years ago
Im afraid this will never get better. Afraid of being alone forever.

I feel alone because this isn't something easily discussed and nobody understands the pain and discomfort. I have a friend that I can talk to about this but I know she just doesn't understand. I want to tell my mom but I don't want her to feel as if they have failed as parents.
 
musucgirl 6 years ago
Did you try cold or warm application.
 
fitness 6 years ago
I tried cold last night and it felt good to have it on. As soon as I took it off the burning felt more intense but went away quickly.

I am reviewing the case and will keep reverting with more questions till I have a clear picture.

Please keep patience in the meanwhile and try to answer with as much detail as possible.

If you think of anything in the meanwhile, no matter how unrelated, please post here.
 
fitness 6 years ago
Ok. Again, thank you so much.
I woke up at 3am with intense itching of my anus and vagina so I took a Gam-S which helped within 15 min. When I woke this morning (4 hrs later) the itching was still there a bit so I took another Gam-S and helped again.
Also yesterday I had colonics done and the rest of the day and this morning my bowels feel empty but lower abdomen hard and bloated feeling.
 
musucgirl 6 years ago
What is Gam-S and colonics.
 
fitness 6 years ago
What about warm application. Please try that too and let me know.
 
fitness 6 years ago
Gammadyn-S is something my homeopath gave me.
Colonics is a colon cleanse.

I will try the warm application later this evening.
 
musucgirl 6 years ago
What about UTI symptoms, do you still have them. If yes, what are those.
 
fitness 6 years ago
Are any lymph nodes swollen, anywhere and are they painful.
 
fitness 6 years ago
Treatment of vulvodynia is difficult and can require great patience and persistence on the part of both patient and practitioner.

Take 'Ranuncolus 30' 10 drops in 30 ml luke warm water. (Morning time empty stomach)

Take 'Kreosotum 30' 10 drops in 30 ml luke warm water. (afternoon and night)

Take 'Phosphorus 6c' 10 drops in 30 ml luke warm water. (at bed time)

Do not use deodorants, perfumes or other cosmetics.

Take a diet, which is rich in the amino acid lysine like beans, lentils, cheese, nuts, soya beans (tofu), fenugreek seed, meat (red meat, pork), poultry, eggs, fish (cod and sardines)

Drink eight to ten glasses of water, per day.

Garlic is antiviral. In the morning take a tiny piece of garlic and crush it
with the knife. Follow with a glass of water (swallowing instead of chewing
avoids garlic breath).

follow as advised.

Report after 3 days.

Have patience and try to keep your self happy.

Dr. Rahat, as I can see the remedies suggested by you are not fitting the case.

They might be palliative at best.

Please share your repertorization to explain why should she take them.
 
fitness 6 years ago
I no need to give explanation to anybody. Our views are diffrent, if you think remedies are not appropriate for the case, kindly suggest remedies with your huge experience and let the patients decides what to take.

You may continue with your prescription i am leaving this case this is the first time that somebody point out finger on my prescription in my 10 yrs study.

Best of luck...!

Dr. Rahat 6 years ago
Thanks for leaving the case.

If you are a doctor as you claim to be, you will not be offended when someone asks the basis for your prescription.

Prescribing remedies without repertorizatin and to top it all with mixing remedies is NOT homeopathy.
