Re: Anal stretching device against sitting discomfort?

The jury is out on anal dilators, also known as 'anal cones'. Let us know if they help relax the sphincter. We have not had any rave reports here (although just today there is this http://www.chronicprostatitis.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=8177&p=52614#p52614 ) More useful, I suggest, would be para...

Re: Weird symptoms. Opinions please!

CPRS (aka RSD) is not known to change sebaceous glands, but it can inflame skin, making them more prominent. So to show the power of the nervous system, see what it can do to the skin in CRPS: cause swelling under the skin make skin red or blue make skin dry or scaly cause hair to be thinner or coar...

It's probably nerve related (nerves can inflame skin, just read about complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) for instance). The suddenly overactive sebaceous glands point in the same direction ...

Re: Don't Know What To Do Please Help!

You've got a lot going on. My guess would be that the disc problem was the initiating factor. I've had one as well, and it was a very unpleasant experience that caused pain and dysfunction in my buttocks, hips, legs, even foot. That was just from a slightly damaged disc also with a small bulge, so d...

Re: Biome study

I don't like it. It just perpetuates the same old infection myth by telling you that DNA sequences were found for this or that bacterial strain, which can happen even though the bacterium named is not causing a problem.
