Vaginal pain, burning, itching, numbness, swollen. Diflucan, Flagyl ineffective. What should I do?

I have been having severe vaginal pain, burning sensations, itching and numbness or a swollen feeling everyday since last October. Difulucan and flagyl never help. When it started I felt like something was attacking my nervous system and remember I slept 12 hours that night, I felt knocked out. I also have severe pain in all areas of my body. Pain can jumb from one location to another in seconds or last in one area for awhile. I had one day a few weeks ago that I felt completely normal, No pain, no vaginal trouble whatsoever, and then it all returned. When doctors examine me they say the vagina looks dry. I've even tried vagifem-10 with no relief. My doctor said I have fibromyalgia. Today I came home from work, and looked in the mirror and saw redness on my face under both eyes. My vaginal discharge is getting worse and more itchy. I have extreme fatigue, thirst, lack of appetite somedays, and have always had an itchy rash below where I had my appendix out. Could this be a type of lupus or do I just accept the fibromyalgia diagnosis. I also have sinus issues, expell lots of yellow flem from my sinus through my mouth. I have suffered horribly since October. I had all these same symptoms in 1999 for two years and then it all disappeared gradually. I didn't know if this is just vulvodynia or not. I paid a woman $100.00 for live blood analysis and she said I was full of inflamation and dehydrated. I wish all this would go away. I take 75mg of elavil with no relief. I took 50mg of Lyrica with a small amount of relief, but thought my sinus troubles were from the Lyrica, so stopped the Lyrica. I had severe withdrawal even with gradual tapering. I'm really scared. What should I do. I feel I can't live this way anymore.

The numbness and itching of the genital area can often be secondary to psychosomatic causes ,fungal infection of the vagal area needs to be evaluated.A gynaecologist and a Neurologist need to be consulted to check for vulvodynia and rule out depression and allied conditions.
