I understand Lightning Tree. And although I want to emphasize the psychological issues and subconscious here, I must admit I do things to help when pain is bad to - hot baths, running, valium or just laying down and relaxing. But I don't want to do anything more active to treat it myself, because I ...

Way to go! Last year when I ran I often had to stop and pee. Fortunately I can run in the woods... A few weeks ago I ran 22K (show-off! :P ) without any urge at all. It's such a great feeling I can't stop smiling when running even though I am exhausted;-) Now I am at a point where my symptoms go awa...

Let me put it this way: I'd say its 50/50. SOmetimes, stretching, PT and TP release are what you need to relieve left over physical symptoms. Other times, a nearly subconsious tension is going to be causing the muscles to wind up again, and won't stop until the stressor is relieved. In my opinion, ...

Hi, Scotsman - I'll try to respond. Relaxation will help no matter what you are suffering from, but it's not always a way to get better. The TP therapy is good for many - I read the posts here too - but I find it pointless for me because I think the root or cause is psychological. Spending a lot of ...

gp2, your message is clear and well written - and I agree with your advise. Have been going to psychotherapy for almost one year now, and have finally found someone who's managing to help me get on with my life, and actually seeing a future. Even if I hadn't felt better physically, it would still be...

To: DavidinLA Putting my mind at ease - going to psychotherapy has/ and is teaching me to think differently about myself and how I act. Changing patterns of thinking which might not have been healthy... Hard to explain, but seeing a psychotherapist has made me feel more comfertable with myself - I a...

All in my head?

It's been a while since I wrote on this board, so I think it is about time I share some of my experiences the last few months. I have struggled a lot the last 9 years with pain in the pelvis area - frequent urination, pain after ejaculation etc. And big problems with the bowel for the last 6-7 years...

Hi BG, thanks for the post. I've been seeing a psychotherapist for a few months now, and I would strongly recommend it to you in your situation - and everyone else also acctually. Allthough getting things of your chest to your girlsfriend is great, it can not compare to seeing a psychotherapist - at...

There was a guy who posted a success story a few months ago, after being introduced to the psycohological issues ( so, there are some). He had read a book by dr. john sarno, and just after the read he got better. I've read that book also, but didn't get any effect - but it's quite interesting to rea...

Hi lookouth, A psychotherapist will look for the psychological issues that might be triggering the condition, so you should not expect him to refer you to some other treatment until he gets to know you, and your problems. If he thinks that the CPPS is caused by psychological issues he will work with...

I have been told to take Ativan ( Lorazepam ) twice a day 5mg I have been taking it for about 5 days but notice no result Hi, Stick with the meds for 2-3 weeks, and see if there is a difference - it takes time to work. Some valium might help you relax muscles in the meantime. Talk to your doctor ab...

My experience is that all symptoms get worse when it's cold. So try to keep warm using enough clothes, more than you would think, and keep your feet warm and dry. Sleeping with a heatback also helps me after an especially bad day. Just don't go around freezing all day - there is no need to do that! ...

psychological issues or not...

First off, I'm sorry to hear about your problems Unheard. I am not sure you want to hear talk about your problems being psychologically triggered, and there is no reason to believe it from what you write - that's my opinion anyway. If you have some sort of structural damage to your penis, I think yo...

Great to read your story thunderdog. Hope you are 100% soon! I also find it quite strange there are no more posts here. Since I read the books I have slowly started thinking in a different way, and I'm sure Dr.Sarno can help a lot of people here. I'm not feeling that much better yet and symptoms are...

In some bathrooms in the US, there are no doors in the stalls but only dividing walls. I think privacy is important for people, male or female. We have them a few places here also (not unisex :P ), and I must say it's hell for someone like me with IBS... I stay away! But back to alcohol. A few time...
