Re: CPPS/non bacterial prostatitis need help

Hello Mark,
I had the same problem for many years, urologists were of no help to me. Amitriptyline and Cardura helped me initially. I now take magnesium and zinc to keep symptom free.

Re: Magnesium

a lot of things actually. High blood pressure for one. It definitely relaxes my muscles and I have less pain.

Magnesium

I have been using about 800 mg of magnesium for idiopathic pelvic/prostate pain. (Not magnesium oxide because its hard to absorb and can cause bowel problems.) I have been using magnesium glycinate and magnesium taurate. I have tried almost every anti-inflammatory supplement on the market including ...

Do you have Bowel issues with non-bacterial Prostatitis

I wanted to post this in the general discussion where there is more traffic. There are many men on this forum that state they have IBS symptoms with non-bacterial prostatitis, many think that these conditions are related. I wanted to do a definitive poll for prostatitis sufferers. Please chime in if...

Re: Irritable bowels, does it bring to prostatitis?

I have similar bouts with IBS and prostatitis. According to naturopathic doctors poor gut health can cause inflammation in other parts of the body.

Re: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) natural remedy

I have been researching the relationship with inflammation and gut health. I noticed that when my prostatitis symptoms come so do the loose stools. I've also has rosacea for the past 2 years, now it has gotten worse during this flare up. I had read that some doctors think that rosacea is related to ...

Re: Singulair

Thanks. My doc is specific. Chronic non bacterial prostatitis and CPPS go hand in hand. Just have to convince him to give me a trial run.

Re: muscle relaxers and alpha blockers

He is correct. I tried Uroxatral once and had retrograde ejaculation. Once I stopped taking the drug it stopped. Cardura did not do this for me. I took Cardura when I was a teenager for about 2 years. No adverse side effects.

Singulair

I came across a book from Daniel Shoskes. He mentions using Singulair (montelukast) for Pelvic pain. I had a hard time convincing my doctor to give me a script to let me try it. I just wanted to get rid of the inflammation cycle.

muscle relaxers and alpha blockers

I have had minimal success with 2 mg of cardura. I once tried uroxatral and couldnt stand the retrograde ejaculation. I believe that cardura is less selective for the alpha receptors in the prostate. I sometimes have to take my cardura earlier than normal because of tightness. Is there any other alp...

Re: Is anyone having success with Prosta-Q or Q-Urol ?

Why not try the free course of Prost-Q? (Don't touch Prosta-P10X, it's a knock-off and possibly a patent-infringer of unknown and untested quality). I'm glad I saw this before I ordered some prosta-p10x. I was suspicious about the 5 star reviews on Amazon, most of them were the only reviews from me...

Re: Elavil=Miracle Pill

I am thinking about trying out Elavil. What dose should I start with? This will be good because I have trouble sleeping anyway, which I hear it helps with insomnia too.

Misdiagnosed with prostatitis

For many years I took antibiotics and had urologists palpate the prostate and say yeah its inflamed. A few years back I had a TRUS and found out that my seminal vesicles were enlarged, thick and inflamed. The years I went without proper diagnosis, I feel has caused damage to the vesicles. I have had...

Re: Inflamed seminal vesicle, instead of prostate

Do you have any blood in the semen? A classic SV sign. No blood, just wbc in urine and semen. The inflammation comes and goes, after a night of long sex, inflammation sets in, and I hate to say it but sometimes a really good orgasm can trigger it for me. Sometimes it will stay for a day, a week, or...
