Re: Arm Pit Pain/Achiness?

Thanks for the well wishes Jay. Over the course of the past 24 hours I also started having random nerve pain down my right arm and right leg which comes and goes during the day. It's a hot burning tingling sensation for both which is not very pleasant. The doctors I saw were fairly perplexed by ever...

Re: Arm Pit Pain/Achiness?

Dr. Dimitrikov, Thanks for your response. I am seeing a resident at Johns Hopkins Internal Medicine department today so hopefully they will be able to at least rule out some conditions. As with everything related to CPPS I figured that there won't be a definitive answer but maybe they can at least e...

Re: Arm Pit Pain/Achiness?

Yeah being that it is an area for lymph nodes and that I have frequent fevers and chills it worries me but with the unexplained nature of many CPPS symptoms I try to not look to far into things. I hadn't had any health problems prior to CPPS so my only doctor I have a relationship right now is my ur...

Arm Pit Pain/Achiness?

Just another weird symptom question. Has anyone else here experienced a swollen/burning/ache in their armpits? I have all the usual symptoms of CPPS but I also have frequent fevers/chills and a feeling of swollen/painful armpits. It comes and goes, frequently intensifying as the day goes on and woul...

Re: 34 year old, family man. here is my story, any ideas?

All I can say is that from my own experience there are lots of ways this condition manifests itself. If you start to overanalyze everything and self diagnose constantly it does much more harm than good. I have spent way too much time pondering why and what if and all it does is mess with my head. I ...

Superuse, I know that you have a great deal of experience and information regarding this condition and have offered a lot of valuable insight on these forums, but I have to say as a fellow newbie that enjoyed cycling, you come off a little harsh when it comes to the running/cycling/weightlifting top...

Re: Anyone have Epididymitis Cause Chronic Prostatitis?

Yeah, I am the same way. My skin turns hot, my cheeks turn red, and I feel feverish and cold yet my temperature never registers what would be considered a fever. Lately they have been coming and going quicker, sometimes for 30 minutes to and hour and then I'll notice I am back to normal. They seem t...

Re: Dr. Richard Alexander in Baltimore?

So I just wanted to give anyone who is interested a follow-up after my appointment with Dr. Alexander at the University of MD Medical Center. I have to say I was very impressed with him and was extremely appreciative of the time he spent with me. I did the usual urinalysis and vitals with his nurse,...

Re: E-Mail I sent to Head of Urology at Hopkins

Thanks for the info. on a PT in the D.C. area. I actually got the information for Pain Points in Bethesda from this site. I contacted them and they said they are familiar with the Stanford protocal and have been referred patients from Stanford before. I was going to give them a shot if I go that rou...

Re: Anyone have Epididymitis Cause Chronic Prostatitis?

Thank you very much for your personal reply. I am going to see Dr. Alexander at the University of MD in a week or so. The reason I am switching Urologists is mainly because my current one insists that the fevers are completely unrelated to Prostatitis which is not possible in my opinion. The timing ...

Re: Need help regarding stretching and flares

I am pretty new to this condition but I went through a routine of yoga stretches I found on this site two nights ago and my "golf ball" feeling has gotten worse since. It was pretty bad shortly after the stretching and has receded some but still worse than before. I don't know if it's good or bad bu...

E-Mail I sent to Head of Urology at Hopkins

This is an e-mail I sent to the head of Urology at Johns Hopkins Hospital today. It just frustrates me that I live 15 minutes from the the highest rated Urology Department in the country yet they have nobody there with an interest in Prostatitis that can treat me. I thought I would pass it on here a...

Re: General Question for Dr. Shoskes or Any Other Drs. on Here

Yeah, I figured they are the only doctors who post here. I am just trying to wrap my head around the large numbers of people being diagnosed with this each year and the lack of research and education available for patients and doctors online or elsewhere. I was wondering if it's because the majority...

General Question for Dr. Shoskes or Any Other Drs. on Here

I posted a longer introduction with a history of my symptoms last week but still have a kind of bigger general question. I have had symptoms of prostatitis for about 5 weeks now and during that time I have seen some improvement. I stopped antibiotics last week and started on an alpha blocker and tha...

Re: Anyone have Epididymitis Cause Chronic Prostatitis?

Believe me I have no plans on riding a bike in the near future. But I am also not willing to rule out ever riding again. It seems that everyone here has different conditions with different triggers. Assuming I do improve enough in the future to consider riding again I will be very conscious of any r...
