Foam Roller

Just want to bring back an old technique that I've seen on the board before that I feel has contributed to my recovery. In addition to a variety of stretches, I strongly recommend a foam roller to work out the knots and tightness in the midsection and legs. I use it on my chronically sore hamstrings...

Re: bladder and feet?

Haven't been on the board for awhile, but had to reply to this.

For me, yes, there is definitely a connection between the pelvic pain and burning on the soles of the feet. I haven't found anything that relieves it, but can assure you that as you heal, it will fade as well.

Re: Positive results doing stretches described in HITP

I've always been an advocate of stretching. I can pretty much get rid of any pain after a short stretching regimen. I'm more in a maintenance stage now so don't expect it to work straight away in the early phase of this condition. Yoga is great also if you want to couple relaxation techniques as well.

Re: Piriformis Stretches

I highly recommend the yoga pigeon pose. You may also want to try "neural flossing" which stretches out the piriformis as well but use caution on this one as it can aggravate things. Google these to get some videos and descriptions. Focus on controlled breathing into your pelvic region as you stretc...

Piriformis Stretches

Just wanted to emphasize my favorable results with stretches that target the piriformis muscle in the pelvis. There are a whole litany of stretches out there but you need to do the right ones that hit that muscle precisely. Apparently problems with this muscle (i.e. it becoming short and tight) can ...

Re: 5 year's since my onset...Life is good!

Great post - couldn't agree more. In some strange way, I am strangely grateful for the CPPS wake-up call. It has allowed me to be more honest with myself in terms of what is really important in life. My general life philosophy has been altered dramatically these past few years living with this. And ...

Re: Treating Neuropathy with Metanx - from Wall St Journal

Just a comment on Metanx. My doc prescribed it for suspected neuropathy in my feet. I could not tolerate it at all as it made me drowsy as hell. He never heard of that as a side effect but it clearly states it on the prescription bottle.

Re: CPPS: going on three years now

Burner2K: I've also had an anxious disposition. I've known that for some years but I never really suffered to the point to feel the urgency to treat it until I got hit with CPPS. Here are some things that helped me: I went on a treatment of Lexapro and Lorazapem that addressed my anxiety. Certainly ...

Just want to recognize my coming up on three years with this condition now and reflect on all that's happened... FEB 2008 - present: The initial shock and subsequent confusion and anxiety: perineal pain, frequency. GP prescribes two different antibiotics for prostatitis which didn't help. The anxiet...

Re: Trigger point release relieves nerve pain?

Well, that's good. So if it comes back negative, PN can be ruled out and I suppose nerve damage in general.

Re: Trigger point release relieves nerve pain?

Yes, have heard discussions on nerve crosstalk on this board. I would assume trigger point treatment would help that assuming it addresses the primary source of the pain? Also, does nerve crosstalk occur even after the source of the pain has been addressed or does it indicate there is still a proble...

Trigger point release relieves nerve pain?

My pelvic pain is very manageable these days (no urinary symptoms to speak of, little discomfort when sitting) but I've been plagued by neuropathic pain in my feet. As such, I was experimenting with internal trigger points last night to see if I could get any relief. I did discover a painful area cl...

Re: Webslave - MRI result

Sherradin, I noticed that you trace many of your issues to your back situation including your burning feet. While I don't have any back pain, I wonder if there could be some kind of referred pain by pinching some nerve or something. My posture is notoriously bad over the years due to bad sitting hab...
