Re: Which doctor is better, Bahn or Guercini

Before you consider any invasive procedure, read my recent post on this:

I also posted earlier on my experience with intraprostatic injections, so you can do a search for it

Re: New Member with questions- Please help!!

Having incurred over $100,000 in negative tests I can tell you that Webslave is probably 99% correct. You simply overgoosed your pelvic muscles and nerves and they have not recovered. I have been dealing with it for over 2 years and am not any closer to resolving it. I do believe the more you mess ...

The stress factor

Just to show how important the stress factor is in this condition: I have had some of the most stressful weeks in my life. I had my whole ceiling renovated because of impact noise of my upstairs neighbour which did not allow me to fully relax. Tried reasoning with the guy several times, but lack of ...

Re: Supplements to try

Right, I already seem to have inquired about this about a year ago http://www.chronicprostatitis.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=5193 I also came across this information http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/natural/patient-sawpalmetto.html which states that Saw Palmetto in CPPS has no signific...

Re: Supplements to try

Just a few thoughts about my supplement intake: Until a few weeks I was taking Zyflamend together with a compound of Quercetin 1000 mg+ Vitamin C 120 mg + Saw Palmetto 320 mg. I used to take a product that combined Quercetin with Bromelain and Papain but that got discontinued and I couldn’t find a a...

Re: Newbee Introduction - Sorry, It's Long, ...

I don't agree with anyone who says you have to stop all exercise and focus on yoga or whatever. There are plenty of examples of people that have improved without having to give up what they like eg scoobysnacks who is back to competitive bodybuilding. I think it's key to be able to work around the p...

Re: Anyone have Epididymitis Cause Chronic Prostatitis?

Once your immune system is "goosed", for example by prolonged stress, you can end up with a stress-induced feverish reaction . I find this interesting. Whenever I'm having a bad flareup (such as now :mad: ), I feel feverish but there is no or only a slight rise in my core temperature. So it seems t...

Re: will internal work help abs

hey guys, I haven't been doing any internal work for about a month as my PT said everything feeling good in there. My abs are my main battle at the moment and wondering if I should keep internal work because it could somehow help abs. I do have some tightness in groin which it may help too??? Whene...

Re: Bodybuilding, steroids and prostatitis

As you say, this will not work for everyone. Personally I have found no direct correlation between weight lifting and my symptoms. I do find that working out in general relieves stress and contributes to general well being, which is crucial in fighting this condition. After a session, I do stretch e...

Re: Neural wind-up or hyperprotection?

I'm not an expert, but that sounds logical, doesn't it? The main thing is to stop sending the constant nerve impulses to the pelvis that cause the tensing. No need for modesty :-) I think you are more skilled at this than 90% of the urologists out there. Am I right to say that all CPPS sufferers ha...

Re: Neural wind-up or hyperprotection?

thx webslave. You mentioned in a different post http://www.chronicprostatitis.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5468#p30034 that it's a self-reinforcing pain cycle. Am I correct to assume that allodynia can cause trigger points to flare up again, hence consistently treating the trigger points also helps...

Benzo's case

After a relatively good 4 month stretch with tolerable discomfort and being physically very active, I encountered a setback yesterday. While playing some friendly soccer, someone grabbed me lightly in the nuts. No bad intention though, more playfulness. However, throughout the day I felt my symptoms...
