Burning vaginal pain, what could it be?

I'm having severe burning and inflammation of vulva. I was tested for std's and b.v. and all tests come back negative. I am also experiencing some urinary problems. Tenderness to touch when bladder is full, and frequent urination. Dr. said I have yeast infection and prescribed Diflucan, and clotrimazole. The cream is making the burning worse. I've also tried monistat which also made burning worse. I also experience lower back pain, GERD and rectal burning and pain with bowel movements. I have nocturia, and painful intercourse. I had hysterectomy a year ago and pathology report came back as chronic inflammation. I also have vaginal dryness after hysterectomy. I kept my ovaries. Any idea what could be causing all of this? I'm so lost, and Dr's don't have answers for me. Could systemic yeast cause all of this? I'm worried. Please help.

This burning can be due to vulvitis, yeast infection as your doctor has suggested or due to cervicitis. For candidiasis or yeast infection, Take some precautionary measures like avoid wearing tight fitting clothing like jeans and pantyhose and underwear made from synthetic fibresRemove wet or damp bathing suits immediately after swimming,avoid douching, perfumed soaps, bubble baths and toiletries,change underwear daily,wash underwear in hot water (to destroy fungi) and double rinse (to remove any irritating detergent) and take adequate nutrition and sleep.Also use some antifungal pessaries like clotrimazole (Femizole-7), miconazole (Monistat-Derm, Monistat Vaginal) or nystatin which are available over the counter.If still the symptoms persist then oral antifungals may be needed. Also then get a KOH examination of the skin scrapings and a cervical swab of the discharge done.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

It can be a case of trichonamous. There is an antibiotic for it and get a creme that treats for herpes. That was my relief and since I have been OK. As far as your digestional issue you may want to see if you have diverticulitis. Be careful of what you eat and your mate. Too much bread or beer can produce a lot of yeast and anything like pastries cakes etc

Hello. Thank you for your reply. I was treated about a week ago for yeast infection and Dr. gave me Diflucan and vaginal cream. One week later now and still no relief. I am also experiencing terrible low back pain all along the lower back, like aching, not stabbing. I do not have blood in urine. I was tested for Trich, ghonorria, clamidia, and other std's and tests come back normal. I do have a slight pungent vaginal odor too. This morning I was having bladder pain and vaginal pain. I don't think I have herpes, but have never been tested. I don't ever see any signs of it. One Dr. thought maybe could have I.C. but not sure. Most people with I.C. have stabbing pains, and not all my symptoms match I.C. Can muscles and nerves maybe cause this, or problem with my back?

Although you may were treated for yeast infection trich is a really bad yeast infection that had gone unnoticed for a while with vaginal discharge odor. But not saying you have herpes just something to help with the inflammation and itching
