I had only been diagnosed with vestibulitis, but after reading so many blogs from other vagina pain sufferers, I was beginning to wonder if I also had pelvic floor dysfunction and a problem with my Pudendal nerve. Then, I woke up last night at 3am with the most horrible vagina pain ever!! I laid there crying until I just couldn't take it anymore. Then I remembered a fellow vagina pain friend telling me that stretching helps relieve her pain, so I climbed out of bed and stretched for about 30 minutes. And sure enough, she was right!! I was finally able to go back to sleep. I have been wanting to go to a PT for a very long time, but I didn't think that I could afford it. After the pain last night, I didn't care how much it would cost! I just wanted to feel better. So first thing this morning, I called to make an appointment. To my surprise, they had a cancellation and were able to get me in today! The appointment went GREAT! The PT was wonderful and I felt very comfortable with her. She diagnosed me with pelvic floor dysfunction and pudendal myalgia. I know it sounds bad that I now have 3 vagina problems, but I was actually relieved! For the first time in over a year, I actually have HOPE!! I might not have to live with this pain forever after all! There might actually really be someone that can help me!
