Re: Recommended Products and Sponsors

The Amazon store is gone, along with all other Amazon stores (Amazon retired all Amazon Stores in October 2017). Sorry.

Re: CNS is a key player in CPPS

GABA levels are lower in brain of pts with chronic pain (also in fibromyalgia pts), but does pain lower GABA or does lower GABA cause pain? Chicken and egg. :confused:

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

The wand / therapist's finger will apply pressure beyond the haemorrhoids.

They are clearly troublesome and worth removing.

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

Internal hemorrhoids are around the sphincter and will not affect internal massage. You should have the internal hemorrhoids assessed by a surgeon with a view to fixing.

What is your age?

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

See if symptoms change (IOW improve) when you're in vacation mode. That's a 'tell' if it occurs, meaning you are in control of it and must devote more time to instilling calmness into your life. Easier said than done.

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Let's see what the uro says. I still think you're in the foothills of CPPS. But you are not good at keeping calm. Work on that.

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

If you are not experiencing PAIN, then you do not have CPPS, yet, and you may never have it. You may need treatment for OAB. Have you been evaluated for OAB? In some cases, frequent urination is not a symptom of a problem, but IS the problem. In people with overactive bladder syndrome, involuntary b...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

Could be simple flare, which can happen to anyone (difficult to tease out the triggers, but often stress or worry, change in diet, change in activity etc), or could be a reaction to kratom, which is a largely unknown and potentially dangerous drug:
