Vulvodynia is not very well understood, some say it's an irritation and other think it could be nerves or even allergies. Whatever causes the problem women with this problem experience sereve pelvic pain, burning, among other problems. There is no quick fix to this problem. Some doctors alter pt diet and others use topical creams and lidocaine. On the more extreme end some women have surgery or biofeedback. Here are a few websites that are helpful: http://www.nva.org/ http://www.vul-pain.dircon.co.uk/
This final website has a Guest Book - you might want to read what some patients are reporting and what their physicians are doing. http://www.vulvodynia.com/
I hope this information helps.
