Taekwondo exercise

I have started taking taekwondo classes again and these involve a lot of sit up and core work. Are these bad for cpp?

medication

I suffer from cpp and take a combination of Lyrica 75 mg 2x per day, tramadol 50 mg 2x per day and valium 5 mg 2x per day. Have been thorough extensive pt but this is all that seems to work. Have concerns about too many meds. Does anyone have any experience with this

role of urologist

Hey guys, have been on here many times. I have been treating with PT and stretches and medication. This has all been prescribed by my gastroenterologist doc. Now she wants me to see a urologist. How will this differ from what she does?
