Re: Any good ic/CP/CPPS doctors in NH boston area?

I'm currently seeing Ann Levesque in Beverley MA. I have not had any success after about 20 visits. Too bad because she is supposed to be very good for our area

Re: Central Nervous System the key?

Makes sense to me. Testicular tingling is my worst and most common symptom. Thinking of something that makes me anxious or nervous actually triggers the tingling. This occurs even when very relaxed so it doesn't always have to do with me tensing my pelvic muscles. For me this symptom is definitely c...

Re: PT in Boston area?

Yeah I hear ya. If Lyrica is the only thing that works I'll probably get back on it but I'd really like to find other means for a remedy. My other symptoms have actually improved a good deal the past few weeks. Testicular pain is down, frequency is down etc. I still have post ejaculation soreness an...

Re: PT in Boston area?

Hey guys. Sorry I didn't post anything in a while. I was at the Fire Fighting Academy for 3 months and things were so hectic that I didn't even come to this site. And I didn't want to post anything until I had good news. That being said, I have a mixed bag of news regarding my condition. I just look...

Re: PT in Boston area?

Thanks a bunch for the chiropractor info as well as sharing your own thoughts. I think I'm going to give the PT in Beverly a shot in the next few months and will keep your Chiropractor in mind too. My symptoms have already eased with my own work so hopefully one of these specialists can really do th...

Re: very depressed !!!

Hey Ted. Sorry nobody has responded to your latest post. I wish there was a way to be alerted when a reply has been posted so those in that chain could respond right back. Anyway, I can't explain the foamy urine. You're the only one I've ever heard of with that problem. But don't feel bad, I've scou...

Re: Any luck with Lyrica?

Hey ZR and clay2. I'm not sure if the Lyrica works or not. I know that is not the answer you are looking for but I really don't know. I believe my doctor put me on Lyrica because of the severe testicular tingling I've suffered from. Since Lyrica goes at the nerves and tries to ease pain that way, I ...

Re: PT in Boston area?

Hey man, thanks for getting back to me. Thats a lot of good info you provided and I've noticed a lot of similarities in my symptoms. I used to have chronic next pain until I realized it was because I kept my shoulders shrugged and tense. Since I stopped doing that my neck is 95% better. I then read ...

Swelling between testicles?

I hope people aren't getting sick of my postings but after living with this for 11+ years and finally getting a correct diagnosis last November, Its overwhelming to be able to talk about all this stuff with people who know what I'm talking about. Although I'll be honest, I much prefer talking about ...

Re: very depressed !!!

Yeah I definitely will practice that. Before joining this site a few days ago I was actually considering relaxing during intercourse etc. but its great to hear people actually 2nd the notion and say that it works. I've actually tried practicing on my own and its nearly impossible for me to do withou...

Re: PT in Boston area?

Hey guys. I'm new to the sight but have had CPPS(maybe IC) for about 12 years. I'm having some difficulty in figuring out how everything works and I originally wanted to reply to Virtuals post about "3 years pain free." I couldn't figure out how to just respond to you though so I found other posts o...

Re: Any luck with Lyrica?

My discovery that I have been telling people for years is to RELAX DURING ORGASM. It takes a little practice, but you'll find that it helps a lot with the pain issue. By relaxing do you mean relaxing my muscles? I've always had soreness after ejaculation but the pain during it is new. Lately I've t...

Any luck with Lyrica?

I've discovered pretty quickly on this site that this seems to be a Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol and Quercetin group. I'm seeing a urologist from Harvard that seems to be focussing more on medicinal approaches to easing the symptoms as opposed to physical therapy. I've had manageable symptoms for...
