Hi Mate, Let's start with which state your in ? Second, let me suggest you seek out Colorectal specialists instead of of Uro's - in my experience their on different pages with this thing.

Lyrica - need some info please.

Hi All, On my last visit with my GP, he suggested trying this drug in place of all the other stuff I'm tacking, IE; Val', panadine forte, etc. I think this is a new drug here in Oz ? What he gave me was 2 sample starter packs ( 14 per pack - 75 mg each 2 times a day ). Has anyone here tried this stu...

Hi Kpbos, I would suggest that you are still on a beginners level and the Asanas you describe would be on an intermediate level, which would be hurting you rather than helping you at this point. You might want to consider Hatha Yoga as an alternative. While I agree, that the abdomen is the "Core" en...

Hi Damien, Welcome mate. You've come to the right place for help & support.

If, you dont have a copy, I would really recommend you get it. I'm actuall...

Hi Woodsy, No I haven't started treatment yet, but I'm close to it. Travel & cost aside, I dont want to live with this Sh*t anymore & get on with life ! I figure, we all get to a stage early on where we can only do so much ourselves & then look for help to take our treatment further. Meantime, can I...

Hi JonP, I share your symptoms, thought's and opinions. Pubic area / penile pain ; My external trigger points for these areas are in the abdominal area - all over. If you want to treat them from an "eastern" perspective, work the whole region in a clockwise motion. Sitting pain ; Like you I can't si...

Hi ss, Yes, THE Sphinterectomy - the worst thing I've done to myself. I think DR Wise uses the word "drastic" in relation to a Sphinterectomy in A HEADACHE IN THE PELVIS. If I had that book, or even half the information in it at the time, I would not have had it done, as after the operation my sympt...

Thanks guy's. I think they are Hemorrhoid's :cry: The OTC stuff just doesn't do enough for long enough. Has anyone on this forum irradicated external hemorrhoid's without surgery ? Here's a thought, I can't sit down for longer than 10 - 15 min's, so why have I got them ? Good health to all. Cheer's.

Hi Howden, Re the manuka honey, I would recommend starting it with a level tea spoon a day on an empty stomach, try for at least a 1 hr gap between, food and med's. Be sure to keep your daily water intake up, as it can dry you out. In the short and long term, I believe it will aid in restoring your ...

My experience was, was going to a clinic, drinking a small amount of some type radioactive type of thing, waiting half a...
