Severe vaginal, genital and rectal pain with labor like contractions that radiate down thru my feet and toes.
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
My affliction began approximately 7 years ago with what felt like a vaginal graft infection. Gynecologist recommend d & c which didn't help. Next, he recommended total hysterectomy which didn't help. Consumers with sexual health specialist who prescribed vaginal suppositories and internal physical therapy. No relief. Conventional accupuncture, again no relief. Consulted with another specialist who suggested spinal stenosis could be the cause. Surgery to repair didn't help. New gynecologist did vaginal lidocaine injections then battlefield accupuncture, again no success. Currently undergoing treatment with pain management specialist. His first therapy was to install a spinal cord stimulator which he since removed. I now have a pain medication pump that is currently dispensing a mixture of bipivicaine and hydromorphone which is not helping. I have been prescribed various painkillers, none of which have offered any relief. I rate my pain scale at 6 on a good day by early evening it increases to 8 or 9. My quality of life has deteriorated and many days the pain is so exhausting that I stay in bed. I am 64 years old and married.
