Vulvodynia: May be. Due to dysfunctional contractions/spasm/ neuropathy . discuss PT exercises or biofeedback. Also check for yeast infection which seems to be associated with vulvodynia, and is assocaited with Gi disturbance. . http://www.nichd.nih.gov/health/topics/vulvodynia/conditioninfo/Pages/treatments.aspx http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18981976
