Re: New here - thought I'd say hi - my story so far

A few ideas: - Have you tried tracking your water intake? It may just be a case of dehydration. - Are you on any drugs? Have you tried or considered trying an alpha blocker or Urelle? - Have you tried tracking your diet to see if any foods trigger discomfort on urination? Thanks for the reply I beg...

Re: New here - thought I'd say hi - my story so far

Hi all Most of my discomfort now comes from pre/post urination. I can feel discomfort just before I urinate and am left with a feeling with urethra discomfort. This usually calms down after 5 mins or so, but it leaves a nerve pain/cold sensation on my upper thighs and penis tip. Any ideas? Much appr...

Re: Urethra pain/ache - Tip pain

I am not too bad. I have lived with it since my early 20s', but have had pain free times

Mainly urinary symptoms now (the worst in my opinion)

See my story in the thread

Re: Urethra pain/ache - Tip pain

I found they lasted about 6 mths then subsided. Its a complex thing to live with as the symtoms change all the time. Managing it mentally is the key.

Re: New here - thought I'd say hi - my story so far

Hi guys Haven't posted in a while, so here's an update. As always, your advice is appreciated. Still have many symptoms - but they fluctuate. I still have urinary issues; I get burning on urination/discomfort after urination 5/10 times. Recently I've had pain in my left hip. Testicular pain has died...

Re: New here - thought I'd say hi - my story so far

I am off to Chile with my partner soon for a holiday and may make an appointment with a consultant, just to see if the Southern American approach can offer anything different. He was emailed my symptoms and replied; 'CPPS unfortunately is an illness very difficult to deal and treat. The first thing ...

Re: My story...Do I have CPPS?

Masturbation is a massive no-no for this condition; it can set me back days, but I always get back to a base level of tolerable discomfort soon enough. I would only try to have sex at least once a week at the most though and am going to start taking 2.5mg valium afterwards as it seems to really help...

Re: New here - thought I'd say hi - my story so far

Guys,

Can you let me know your thoughts....

My symptoms are now down to discomfort after peeing (subsides after 3-5mins) in the genital area and left testicular pain (mild)

Any thing more I could be doing to help this?

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Dont be too hard on yourself - I doubt that many people can sit in car for 4 or 5 hours without even thinking about needing to urinate at some point. The best advice I can give is focus on your mental health for a bit; get yourself into a good place of low anxiety/stress/well being, then you will fi...
