Vulvodynia

Vulvodynia is a condition where chronic pain occurs in the vulva, located on the external female genitalia, for greater than three months. The pain occurs without a known cause and is often described as a burning or itching sensation.

One study found that 30% of those with vulvodynia also had migraine.1

In addition, vulvodynia shares many comorbidities with migraine such as chronic pain, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, and chronic fatigue syndrome.
