I posted last week about a female problem I have been dealing with and pulled it because it was just an hysterical rant about how I was treated in Urgent Care.  Anyway, the swab test results revealed no yeast, bacteria or the other twelve things they tested for that I never heard of.  The urine sample showed a small 'trace of blood' which was too miniscule to test and something that begins with an 'L'.  I have been on a full course of Monistat and now an antibiotic for a UTI.  So far, nothing has relieved the itching, burning stinging.  So.  After calling a gazillion gyno's, none would see me without a referral and my Rhuemy is out of town until next week.  I bit the bullet and finally called a friend who is a gyno, and he is the one who put me on the antibiotic and I am seeing him tomorrow.  I have not been to a gyno in 12 years...had a complete hysterectomy inlcuding ovaries 40 years ago.
I printed out a list of fibro symptoms that includes vulvodynia to show him.  I don't know if he believes in Fibro, but I am anxious to just get to the bottom of this and present him with the obvious and not be  put through anymore tests...no health insurance.  Is there anything else I should mention, when it comes to fibro?  I get so flustered when I'm in the office, I want to make sure I tell him everything.  This is very embarrasing for me as I see this guy at least twice a week in socical settings, but I am desperate.
Someone told me anxiety can cause these symptoms and I'm thinking with the loss of Vesta and slamming my finger in a steel door and breaking it, might have put me over the edge???  It's called 'Hysterical' something or another.  Can't even remember the name of it.
Anything else I should mention??  Believe me, this is going to be a one time event!  I'm wearing a mask!

I always take a current list of meds, even OTC ones and a current list of symptoms. I used to keep a journal, not a full fledged diary but more along the lines of, "Monday: 3 stressful, Tuesday: 1 stressful" and so on using a scale of 1-10 for stress on a given day. I can't think of anything else off the top of my head (stupid fog) but I hope it goes well. I went through the same battery of tests to find it was nothing medical and I now use Beaudreaux's Buttpaste or aloe vera with lidocaine
