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

HCR,

I just used the top brands on Amazon. Nothing fancy or exotic.

I recently stopped taking quercetin and the hot bowel movements have gone away, but the other CPPS symptoms remain.

Not sure why quercetin would cause bowel irritation but for me it's a problem.

Re: Sits Bone & Coccyx Pain

I also have tailbone pain that comes and goes

I did not have this at first, but rather months after initial onset. I do not know if this is just a natural progression of pelvic floor dysfunction or if the stretches make it worse.

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

Just an update. I had a semen culture performed and it showed no bacterial growth (just like my urine samples). I'm going to try and get referred to a physical therapist. After searching through this forum I did find a post about someone who took Wobenzym and Serrapeptase in high doses which cured t...

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

No family history for those conditions. The IBS symptoms coincided at the same onset as prostatitis.

Currently only supplementing with Quercetin, magnesium, cranberry, iodine, selenium, melatonin, cod liver oil, a probiotic, vitamin D and B vitamins.

Used to also take Serrapeptase

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

I was given Valium for 2 weeks. I took it before bed because it made me sleepy otherwise. Can't say it did a whole lot for my symptoms, though. I ordered L Theanine so we will see if that helps with the anxiety. Another symptom I have, which is really odd, is a 'hot' feeling during and after bowel m...

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

Glad to hear of a similar story. Caffeine hasn't really triggered my symptoms, although I have abstained just to be sure. I had sudden, severe symptoms at first where I was almost completely unable to urinate. I don't know how common that is for people with CPPS, or if their symptoms are more gradua...

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

I know the use of antibiotics is a bit controversial, but if their effects are mostly anti-inflammatory, then they seem to be much stronger than the supplements I'm currently using (quercetin, turmeric, cranberry, etc). A lot of people here haven't had much luck with antibiotics, but they have had a...

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

Thanks for the help! I'll read over the suggested list and pickup a headache in the pelvis. I've been reading over the forum today and I'm trying to isolate my particular symptoms with other users. Most users talk of pelvic pain in general (such as painful sitting, perineum or testicular pain), whic...

New Here - 6 Months of Prostatitis - Feel Hopeless

Here's my story. I've always been very active in the weightroom. I lift 5 times / week. Typically do some form of cardio. I cannot point to any single muscular incident that could have caused a pelvic floor issue, however after many years of deadlifting and squatting combined with a sedentary comput...
