Please do not base your judgement on me as after so long with pelvic pain it could be a nervous reaction on my part. You would need a much larger cross section of people taking Elavil to make a judgement that the medication is the cause.

I have been on 150mg of Elavil for over 2 years and I noticed tremors in my hands, arm and leg muscles and I have never taken Benzos. I do take Flexeril a few times a month for back pain but I have not noticed any pattern.

I have found that leaning slightly forward while sitting on the toilet help me more that just sitting, but sitting is much easier than standing.

Tarlov Cysts

I happened to to see something on Tarlov Cysts at NORD. Does anyone know the differences between our symptoms and those of someone afflicted with Tarlov Cysts?

Incontinence

I have found usually after a 2 hour or longer drive I have major testicular and bladder pain I also get night time incontinence ( thank God for tena pads). I find it very frustrating, is there any other out here that can relate to my problem? Or any one with wisdom on the matter.

I do not fit your mold other than being more or a loner. I pretty much fit the ISTP personality. So why do I have the same symptons as the rest of you but not the same personality?

My wife is a rock she is firmly behind me 100 percent she has even gave me a prostate massage. She understands why we hardly ever have sex any more. She is pushing me a little hard to make myself a nuisance so I do not have to wait so long for treatment. She has helped me in my relationships with my...

Sorry for my late reply. I was testing if using TENS for long treatment times worked any better as short times didn't help at all. I could not tell if the TENS unit or the just time of rest helped me the most. Because of how the electrodes where placed on the perineum and the inquinal canal it made ...

In my case with 2 to 5 hours use daily it lessened my pain. You could say it worked as much as I get from plain rest in a prone position, which I also had to do when using the device. Sorry I could not help you any more.

For myself I have found the weight that I gained is part of the problem as well as Meds, I also am using Neurontin at 3200 mg per day and up to 10mg of Hytrin, the Hytrin I find has been relaxing my lower esophageal sphincter but my urine stream is so low without it I try to work around stopping it....

I have problems with acid reflux so I sometimes wake up choking on the reflux, this happens more so when I take Elmiron before bed or when I eat food within 5 hours of bed, fatty foods like ice cream is the worst. The real scary part is I am not always waking up every time, mostly due to all of the ...

Since using Alpha blockers I only have the problem sometimes, usually it only happens when the pain is extreme.
