I would have thought that the fact that the contraction brought about by the TENS machine is more or less involuntary (and electrically fast) would mean that it doesn't carry the same dangers as Kegel exercises, which I think of as quite laborious and strenuous. I've often thought that having the mu...

I agree. I just need to check with them. The PT has already told me she's ok with me forwarding people to her but I didn't mention posting her name. I'll try and find out more about her experience but she's certainly connected with a respected pain specialist who is working in this field and is work...

good news for London, UK.

After a rather frantic internet search a few months ago I found a London-based urologist whom I saw recently. He was the first sympathetic, clear-thinking doctor I had seen. His hospital is doing research into 'prostate'/ pelvic pain and he put me in touch with a pain specialist who, in turn, sent m...

Welcome to the joys of this site. It can be a bid daunting when you first land here but I think you'll get better advice in this tiny colony than anywhere else on the internet. I believe you're not quite considered chronic just yet - and hopefully you won't get that far. 6 months of symptoms is the ...

I think it's fairly basic hygiene. It probably saves sharp fingernail damage too. I don't see why it has any detrimental effect on the sensitivity of the treatment. It's not braille!

This is quite a tough question and, on balance, I'm inclined to agree with Webslave. The stones are apparently routinely found among men who report no CPPS symptoms but who are having exploratory scans for other ailments. That ought pretty much to rule prostatic stones out of the scenario. When last...

There is some discussion around it in a posting below yours - on anti-nanobacterial treatment.

I agree that new research and investigation should be carried out until all sufferers can find some solution to their pain and discomfort. While an initial application of the Nanobaclabs treatment had no apparent effect on my own prostatic calcification, I would like to see more studies into this fo...

Dr. Shoskes - I feel bound to ask, particularly given your disclosures of a potentially vested interest and of your slightly (if I may say so) vague report of your medical findings, should we presume that you have found there is a direct causal link between this broad group of symptoms and calcifica...

Thanks for the replies. It seems they either inject a steroid or botulinum. I'm not sure how this works but if it's a nerve problem, how can Botox work? I thought Botox was for muscles...

nerve-block

Hello -

Could anyone please point me in the direction of any information on nerve-blocks. Apparently there is a lot of research going on at UCH in London regarding nerve-blocks in the treatment of CPPS.

Many thanks...

pubic bone area - what muscle?

Hello - My pain seems to be a/right-sided (I feel something throbbing and aching there when I wake in pain in the night) and b/ above the base of the penis on my front and around the sides (but not the perineum). Basically, it feels like the area where my pubic hair/bone is. Can anyone please give m...

where is bti20 ?

Does anyone have any contact with a poster called bti20? He posted regularly on this forum until December 2004 when he stopped abruptly. It's just that I had some correspondence with him and was wondering what had happened..

Interesting indeed. I wonder what this virus is? Could it be implicated in CPPS, in myoneuropathy? Worth keeping an eye on.

PS. 40% is high!
