Urologic Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndromes (UCPPS)
Cutting edge information on Chronic Prostatitis and Bladder Pain Syndrome/Interstitial Cystitis
I had CPPS since 2005, and like all of you I went through hell, mostly because of not knowing what was going on. The best thing that could have happened to me was to find this site, and to read “Headache in the Pelvis”, thus starting my road to healing
I started with Prosta-Q, twice per day, and had relief after a few months, I took it for 3 months then switched to Q-Urol for 2 months twice a day, now I just went to 1 per day. My bladder issues are totally gone, still having a slight burn once in awhile tho. But I happy to say no more bladder issues! Have faith, I never thought I’d get to this stage!!
I’ve continued to experience incremental improvement from month to month. What’s been my strategy in achieving this improvement? I’ve followed the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol unwaveringly. In my opinion, the Wise-Anderson Protocol relaxation, stretching, trigger point, and psychological therapy are responsible for the improvement.
I noticed that many sites advertised something called Prosta-Q. I saw that the active ingredient was something called Quercetin. I popped down to my local pharmacy and picked up 120 tabs and thought I’ll give it a go. to be honest I’m GLAD I did. It may be placebo or may not but I’ve found since taking one of those each morning it got me to my 95% stage. I now no longer feel the need to do internal trigger point therapy and just continue with my stretches and external massage.
