Re: Progress but improvement stalled

Definitely down-regulate the nervous system. It's key. The hardest part of this condition is that it's inherently set up like a see-saw. Stress/anxiety causes pain <> Pain causes stress/anxiety. In the beginning you MUST work on both simultaneously. Get the tightness under control and ease into some...

Re: Oral sex

...which brings guilt into play. Or is takes place in a very new relationship, or short-lived relationship, and the incident is remembered as a possible cause of a subsequent but unrelated problem. Boom! Exactly. Guilt/fear/feelings of extreme inadequacy. Makes me wonder if there is some subliminal...

Re: Do I have CPPS? What Caused it?

I just want to enforce: It's ALL CPPS related! Chances are, things don't look that different that they did before. But because there's pain/discomfort, the mind becomes hyper-vigilant and starts to look for reasons or rationale for the discomfort. I believe it's more than an instinct, but more of an...

Re: My pelvic pain story

It's really interesting. You either figure it out, or you just keep hurting. Those who figure it out and have success are the ones who come to the conclusion that it's not caused by an infection, or something necessarily tangible, but by your own mind from super heavy stress, trauma, anxiety, depres...

Re: New here - My Story, Desperate for Help.

Also, think of the diagnosis of pudendal neuralgia as another (lazy) word for CPPS. It's generally the pudendal nerve branches that innervate the pelvic region. I used to tell people I had pudendal neuralgia simply because it's easier to understand that that group of nerves are the ones malfunctioni...

Re: Serious complication after prostate massage

Also, just so you know, all tissues of the body heal from damage within six months (except for nerves, which take longer). Any physical injury from an over-vigorous prostate massage would have healed a long time ago. I concur completely with Webslave in what he's said. Sounds like CPPS. The muscles ...

Re: Serious complication after prostate massage

All true. Also, you have it in your mind now that anything sexual causes you pain. That's a vicious cycle. As long as you don't have any chronic trigger points, or chronic tightness, I would go ahead and tell yourself you're ok (especially if they've found nothing really wrong with you) and masturba...

Re: New Here - 6 Months of Prostatitis - Feel Hopeless

Magnesium is good. It helps relax the bowls a little, hydrates the stool, and some people say it relaxes the mind. I used to have a lot of your same symptoms. All gone. What it took was 1) time 2) facing, and giving real credit to some traumatic things in my life, really dealing with it. All this ot...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

Hey man, Sorry to hear about your condition development. Listen to Webslave. Go to PT. Pamper yourself. Meditate. Eat right. Exercise after you get rid of any trigger points or chronic tightness after PT. Most of all, deal with your anxiety! Things are going to be alright. Try to avoid Rx, unless yo...

Re: Overdue Check In With A Good Amount of Success

Chris,
Thanks!
I still get just a TINY bit of testicular pain - left side, but I notice it comes after durations of stress.
It will go away for good. Just think how so many horrible things have resolved over time. This will too. Just keep on!

Re: Rant on CPPS and Research Efforts (or lack of)

Definitely the brain. It's where the pain is ultimately felt, and imho where CPPS starts. We often think of the brain as this separate organ up in the skull. The fact is that every nerve in the body is connected to it, and every muscle in the body is connected to a nerve. Every emotion you feel, inc...

Re: Progress but improvement stalled

I just want to add this: there is a lot of focus on releasing trigger points on this board. It's important in the first stage for sure. But it is NOT the end all to total recovery. In fact, if you give them too much manual attention, it can perpetuate them. It can cause a pain to linger even after t...

Re: Progress but improvement stalled

Ranzzar, It goes away. It takes a long time, but it resolves. If you have had trigger points, those have to be released first until they are consistently down. There comes a point where if you keep giving them attention, it makes the brain focus on them. Once they're released, forget about them unle...

Re: Overdue Check In With A Good Amount of Success

I'm 100% recovered, and have been since early June. Everything I've posted about helping me has been key in the long journey. However, even though I don't have definitive proof, I think the EMDR treatment I did in May(?) is what torpedoed my CPPS/Pudendal Neuralgia/Anxiety Pain. If you're struggling...
