What test did you get done for a matter of interest?
I went to Quest labs and had an ImmuniCAP food allergy test. It tests for allergies to milk, egg whites, peanuts, walnut, corn, wheat, soybean, codfish, clam and shrimp.

Large doses of vit C can keep histamine in check. Try that. It takes months, even up to a year off gluten to see the real benefits. Many antihistamines cause an increase in CPPS symptoms, usually temporarily, through their antimuscarinic effects on smooth muscle in the prostate and bladder neck. Re...

Trembling hands from wheat .. wow, that's impressive. It reinforces my opinion of wheat as a nerve poison: http://www.chronicprostatitis.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2367 You should read the Brostoff book to see how wide-ranging and unusual food sensitivity reactions can be. Allergy and food sensitivi...

I once showed a local uro here a letter of my assessment from Dr. Anderson himself on Stanford letterhead, and the uro paid no attention to it. Friggin' amazing! Some of these guys are breathtakingly arrogant. Seems to go with the territory. Please, my urologist told me that the Stanford/Wise-Ander...

Note: look out for "withdrawal symptoms". When you stop consuming something that is having a big impact on your immune system, it is akin to coming off a drug. You could feel pretty lousy suddenly at first, but that is actually the best sign that you are doing something right. Very shortly, a posit...

Question

I have a question to the group. My doctor put me on atenolol (beta-blocker) for high blood pressure last week. What I find interesting is that since I started the atenolol I find that my CPPS symptoms have greatly lessened...actually they are almost gone. Has anyone had this type of experience?

At the end of urination if I try to get more out I feel a little sting at the tip of the urethra. Most...

Re: thanks for the response

Hey thanks for responding. I had never thought of the PH issue. I have been seeing uro's for 2.5 years now, and the CPPS diagnosis comes from them. My only symptom until 5 months ago was a mild frequency issue. (about 6x per day, and 1 more at night). I was cysto'ed, and found to have mild prostate...
