Re: Hard Spot In Perineum

To make a definitive check, use the Visible Human project. https://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/visible/visible_human.html Thanks webslave, as always. I couldn't find a way to view the data easily, so I just went through the images on this site, and it looks like the "hard" part is ligament tissue or s...

Re: Hard Spot In Perineum

CppsDad, it really freaks me out you're not better by now, I've read your posts from years ago and thought for sure by now you would be living life again. Has it at least been off and on? Man my life really is over. No, I'm WAAAAY better than I was years ago. At this point in my life, the pain is m...

Hard Spot In Perineum

Hi all, I have a question. As part of my normal self-treatment, I use a Theracane on my perineum. I try to push quite hard on the perineal body and the transverse perineal muscles at the base of the bulbospongiosis. This usually helps tremendously. My question is this. When I press hard on my perine...

Re: Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

Sorry, to those who were watching this thread, waiting on me to report back with results. I don't like to post results without enough trials. Anyway, with regard to cremaster stretching, the results are mixed. I could never fully eradicate the pain. Sometimes I felt like it got better. Other times, ...

Re: How my problem started and seeking help

I hate to bring up something I'm JUST STARTING TO TRY, but I've been exploring stretching my cremaster muscles as a possible therapy for testicular pain/dragging/achiness. So far, I can't report any huge successes, but I CAN report that stretching my cremaster muscles recreates my testicular symptom...

Re: Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

I don't have a torn ligament as far as I can tell (it would be pretty obvious I think). So I doubt it's the cause of the pain in my testicles and the achiness. But I'm sure it could definitely cause pain if it were torn!

Re: Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

Judging by what I'm doing, I don't see how a PT can do much better than you can for this particular muscle. I'm literally just pulling my testicles, one side at a time, up, down, out, left, right, whatever I can do. I do it when I wake up in the morning. I do it sometimes when I go to the bathroom. ...

Re: Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

Definitely report back with what your PT says. I assume it can have trigger points too, or at least have inflammation. We know it can have painful spasms based on Google and associated Botox treatments. I'm still surprised it is mentioned so infrequently on this site. IF it is a key contributor to m...

Re: Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

By the way, in looking at some cremaster diagrams, one thing I've found is that the muscle is a LOT LONGER than most diagrams give it credit for. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility that pain in the cremaster can carry well behind the testicles, and even further in and back. I'm still...

Re: Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

Well, I'm one week into my Cremaster Treatment approach, and so far, I don't have any great things to report. But my epididymitis pain is completely activated by the stretching I'm doing, as is the internal, achy, testicular pain I've had for years. I'm convinced I'm onto something, and that the Cre...

Re: Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

Thanks, Webslave. The image you supplied is one of the ones I looked at the other day. Surgery is a no-go for me. I'm definitely going to whip all CPPS symptoms with non-surgical treatments. You still didn't discuss stretching of this muscle, so I'm going to assume it's just not a common approach. J...

Cremaster Muscles For Testicular Pain?

Why are the cremaster muscles discussed so infrequently? I still have a fair amount of testicular pain after all these years (epididymitis pain and dull ache pain), and I think the cremaster muscles may be contributing. I came to the forums to find out how to deal with pain in that muscle, and I fou...

Re: Flares day after sex & my first post

Optimistic, I hear you about the flare being emotionally draining. After a week of a flare, I definitely notice a change in my mood. When a flare starts, I'm like "I dont' care how much this SOB hurts I'm going to fight through it and beat its ass to the ground until it is gone!" After a week or two...

Re: Rectal Tightness - How Deep?

After 3 days, my referred pain behind my testicles is still high. I've definitely found where my effort needs to be. I'm not sure what muscles are at the back end of the rectum, but whatever they are, they are REALLY sensitive for me. Dildo or not, I've always known I had a tight rectum, but this ju...

Re: Rectal Tightness - How Deep?

I will definitely go slow. My referred pain is through the roof right now, so there is no doubt this is a major hurdle for me that has to be overcome. I'll be extra careful with the wand, and use the dildo as often as my butt can take it since it seemed more gentle in the region. Thanks again. As al...
