Re: Trigger Point Injections helps 50% of CPPS patients

Interesting. I'm considering going in for an appointment to see Dr. Alyson Shrikandhe in NYC. They recommend a series of 6 ultrasound guided TP injections that contain traumeel and lidocaine. Has anyone tried similar trigger point injections with any success? This study would seem to indicate that i...

Re: Overdue Check In With A Good Amount of Success

Very interesting about the EMDR treatment. I have so much physical trauma in my past going back to age 12 and I just have this constant feeling of not being well...obviously the pelvic pain is the center of that, but it's also more than that, and I don't think it's anxiety or a ton of stress either....

Returning and still struggling

Hi all, I just wanted to post here since I've been away a few months and am still struggling. In my last few posts I was pretty excited about a mind-body cure that I thought I was making progress with...but again, as with some of my other excitement about various things, I've found it's not really g...

Re: How I'm beating this.

I'm going to add one more thing to this. This looks like a lot of the stuff the Sarno believers say, and when I read their stuff I still didn't get it, and I didn't get it for the longest time. I would like to really think about it better so I can explain it more clearly. What I can say is that you ...

Re: How I'm beating this.

HOLY CRAP. Guys! I had my "Sarno moment" where everything friggin clicked and I finally got it. This was after a therapy session last Thurs... I had an epiphany on Friday. Mark me down as a total believer. I've felt just way better the last couple of days and I'm not really worried about it now. I k...

Re: How I'm beating this.

Well I mean I'm not gonna quit my day job. I'd be perfectly content doing my web business part time and working on my music in the afternoons, evenings, etc. and I don't care if I don't make money from it though of course I'd like to. There's no rule against making some money from both pursuits. The...

Re: How I'm beating this.

Such a narrow outlook. I've made money doing both. I made 15k doing music for The History Channel one year. Why can't I make money from both? I've played probably 500 gigs on the drums and made maybe 20-30 grand doing that or something. And I ran a project studio for years and partially made a livin...

Re: How I'm beating this.

Are you saying it's impossible to get some zest and ambition back in life? I'm not ready to accept that. Maybe one day I'll be forced to but that day's a long way off. Come on! I got fight left in me! Jesus!

Check in - still struggling

Hi all, It's been quite a few months since I've posted. I'm still struggling with my one symptom - a tight, heavy, buzzy, jammed up feeling in the pelvic floor way up to the right and back. About 2.5 years I had an instance while masturbating in a cold apartment (and already stressed from some minor...

Re: Success with Trauma Release Exercises

I'm still struggling. I do get some good improvements using the TRE, but the one symptom that has been bothering me for two years now (awkward, uncomfortable tension in the back of the rectum) just won't give up. I'm debating getting a cystoscopy. A uro I went to strongly suggested I do it based on ...

Re: How I'm beating this.

Meditation doesn't help much if you're physiology is locked in a freeze state due to trauma or stress. You have to release that on the physical level. YES. You've hit the nail on the head with this. I did SO MUCH meditation and while it helped me to stay calm and was a great coping mechanism, it ju...

Success with Trauma Release Exercises

I'm very happy to report that since I've started to do TRE, I've had a pretty drastic reduction in symptoms. It's hard for me to pin it 100% to TRE as I have been putting in sustained effort on meditation, yoga, internal therapy, etc for many, many months, but I really do think it helped me to clear...

Re: How I'm beating this.

Davyboy, I'm definitely going to try the TRE. Do you have any resources that would be a good starting point...and/or did you see a TRE therapist?

Re: How I'm beating this.

My thinking at this point is that 1)I still haven't gone deep enough into the approach and 2) I haven't found the right complimentary treatment It's been about 4 months since I really faced up to the problem...it was as David Wise has said...I hadn't suffered enough. After enough misery I went full ...
