Customer Question

I have been suffering from Vulvodynia for 2 1/2 years. the onset was after an 8 month treatment of antiviral drugs for eye shingles. I have tried everything!!! I would like to know if a nerve block would help or I read that a muscle relaxant, "Flexitril" (?) might help. I have had botox and Kenalog injections, physical therapy, seen 18 doctors. I'm in constant pain, except when lying down and having sex..that actually feels good. I am very depressed and really need help with this condition. It's driving me mad.
