Hashimotos & Vulvodynia, anybody else have both??
I have autoimmune problems including Hashimotos, Alopecia, Henoch-Scholein Purpura, IBS, hives, allergies. Also dx'd with CFS, Fibromyalgia, Anxiety disorder. New problem is Vulvodynia and I am hoping to maybe hear from other ladies in this community who also suffer from this condition as I am trying to work out if it is another autoimmune condition presenting itself and what treatments have worked for others.

I have suffered Vulvodynia for nearly a year now and at wits end with it all.  2 swabs & pap smear have ruled out STI's, Herpes, fungal infections, only elevated Strep B on first swab detected. 1st lot of antibiotics cleared the symptoms but relapsed within a few weeks. Another round of a different antibiotic had the same result. I tried oc thrush treatment with the same result. The active symptoms clear with these treatments however the inflammation is constant. A pelvic ultrasound showed normal results.

Symptoms are (graphic - sorry) general inflammation, burning, itching, raw, red skin with a white, toothpaste like discharge in the vulva area only. No change to vaginal discharge. Feels like electric bugs are biting me! Some days it hurts to walk or just sit comfortably and underwear is really uncomfortable. Heat aggrevates and ice packs relieve. The pap smear hurt so there must be some internal inflammation.

Thanks in advance for any help.
