Could vaginal burning be TMS?

    I have been feeling a burning sensation in my vagina for almost a month. After a test the doctor said it might be due to a slight increase in the amount of good bacteria. I felt better for a while, then it came back. The burning isn't the same all the time. Sometimes I barely feel it, some other days I feel it more. I know I don't have an infection, I don't even have a secretion or anything, it's just the burning sensation. I recently read that the vagina is a muscle, after I read that a lightbulb lit up in my head... if it's a muscle it could also show typical manifestations of TMS such as pain, tingling, burning, numbness..... Am I crazy for thinking this way? I would like to know if any woman here has experienced something like this. Thanks in advance

    Could be, that somehow your muscles there are tense. Have read a little bit of that. I think partly it is that in my case. Maybe stress causes myself to tensing the muscles there. I know i am biting my teeth together often, and the muscles of mouths and muscles in your pelvic floor are in connect somehow.

    Yes, I had this horrendously in college. (Yes, I'm a female and no, Dorado is not my name.) I'd be lying on the floor in pain. Lots of antibiotics and creams provided by my university's medical center - even when no infection was present. Those symptoms were just so convincing! I've written before about how I also had discharge that nobody could figure out.

    It went away when I stopped caring about it... and moved on to other symptoms until I started mind-body work.

    Dorado, i hawe the same here now. My gynecolost did find some DIV from my vagina, and i’m taking a long antibiotic salve for it now. But the burning feeling is not inside the vagina anymoore. Its somewhere between vagina and urethra. And worse ewerytime i go to bathroom. And i have some discharge too. There are better times and worse times. Now worse times again. What did you do, just quit caring all you did? Sometimes my periods make it worse.

    This was a symptom that I truly had to believe was the mind-body connection - because there was no infection and I knew that going on more antibiotics was detrimental to me and other people (my own internal biome, superbugs, etc.). When I believed that, it went away.

    Unfortunately, I still wasn’t balancing my emotions or dealing with my inner turmoil, so the symptoms simply turned into other issues such as nerve pain elsewhere in my body. But once I did the mind-body work, I was successful.

    Here’s how I overcame my worst symptoms: https://www.tmswiki.org/forum/threads/how-i-healed-from-a-myriad-of-symptoms.18723/ (How I healed from a myriad of symptoms)
