Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

I was beginning to wonder: If pain is not really a symptom that I've needed to deal with (yet) - and my primary issues have been urinary discomfort/urgency (best described as pressure, irritation, like urine stuck inside penis/base of shaft) - am I wrong to keep attacking this as though it's CPPD/S?...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

It's a small amount of cranberry extract. It's not the same as drinking cranberry juice. Don't be concerned. I see. I also read on their website that their cranberry extract is non-acidic. This is probably why it's not an issue. So far, 3 weeks in, no big change in symptoms. Doctor RX'd Flomax migh...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

Prosta-Q just arrived. I have a question for you, webslave: You initially recommended that I start the IC-Diet and use Prosta-Q. However, is the Prosta-Q technically IC-Diet friendly? The IC-Diet says that cranberries are a significant irritant, yet I just noticed that the Prosta-Q has cranberry in ...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

My GP was familiar with CPPS. He believed it was "way more common in women who have been sexually abused", but at least he knew it was a thing. When I was messed up by the levaquin treatment years ago I went to about 6-7 doctors before one was familiar with levaquin and tendon damage (how ridiculous...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

Just got out of my first general practitioner appointment. Obviously he suspects prostatitis. Gave me a painful antibiotic shot that made my ass cheek feel like it wants to eject itself from my body and prescribed more abx and Flomax. The best part was the genital probe (q-tip up the urethra) for ST...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

I see. Luckily, I'm not a potter. My focus is contemporary sculptural ceramics and multimedia sculpture. Luckily, my practice involves all sort of movement but not a whole lot of repetition per se. However, it is an astute observation to note that potters do often suffer from repetitive strain injur...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

CPPS wasn't my little brother's only health problem - he had an array of digestive issues and got regular kidney stones for whatever reason. However, the CPPS was his main concern. Shortly before he passed, he actually saw a doc that analyzed his pelvic floor and found a muscle that seemed to contro...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

Thank you for your research, mshaqal. However, back in 2012 when I was hit hard by widespread tendon/muscle/nerve damage due to levaquin toxicity. I was a mess for nearly 2 years and needed PT for 1 of those. The 3 year point was when I saw things permanently going away. I didn't want to take any pa...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

I see. Thank you for the info. My Prosta-Q should be here in a week or so. In the meantime, is there any other hopeful advice that can be relayed to me? I have an appointment with a brand new general practitioner this Friday. I'm going to be asking for another urologist referral - in hopes to actual...

Re: 29 Year Old Terrified for His Future

Thank you for your kind words. This condition is just terrible timing - I have a lot of other stuff I need to be focusing on but I can't pull my obsessive thoughts away from the constant urinary discomfort. It's dramatically affecting my life. When I get the time I'll be sure to check out that audio...

Hello, all. My name is Lucas and I'm a 29-year-old graduate student (MFA - Ceramics) who 2-3 months ago started experiencing the following symptoms in chronological order: Intermittent subtle stinging at tip of penis (50% on/off most of the time it's very minor) Urgency and pressure that is constant...
