Hello everyone! I am a 22 year old girl that recovered from a bad case of vuvlodynia/levator ani syndrome back in 2015. I was a sophomore in college at the time, and took a large bout of antibiotics that made me VERY ill. I developed weird rashes all over my body, VV, ovarian cysts... and was forced to leave school. The doctors diagnosed me with vulvodynia and told me it would never go away. I was heartbroken, but continued to fight. 9 months later, I got a job and started doing acupuncture, and the pain faded quickly. I also discovered Sarno at that time and avidly attempted to ignore the pain. I have been pain free for 17 months, until two months ago. I am studying abroad in Spain and had been dealing with a lot of anxiety and stress in being away from home. I was having panic attacks every day and was so sad. Then, I got sick and was perscribed antibiotics; i was reluctant to take them and scared of what would happen to me, but I did anyways because I am overseas and didn't want to get sicker. two days later BAM. Bad yeast infection, turned chronic pain and levator ani once again. The infection is gone, yet I still have pain and am DISTRAUGHT. I am struggling to think if this is TMS, or maybe a bad infection still? I have a past with this and should know better, but yet, I doubt. Before this incident, I was suffering from chronic knee pain that hurt when I walked as well as back pain; both went away when the pelvic pain returned. Any input would be AMAZING! Thank you! This is my first post !
