I would say yes TJ. Often when I go through a stressful time I feel fine physically until AFTER the stress passes, and then the physical manifestations appear.

The only antihistamine I touch is Allegra (fexofenadine). I used Seldane (Terfenadine) before they too it off the market.

I notice mucus (on the stool, not on the tissue). But I have Crohn's Disease, so I've always attributed it to inflammation from that rather than from pelvic inflammation.

How did you withdraw? Did you cut back to 5 for a few weeks, or just stop the 10mg out of the blue? I would consider cutting to 5 and then take 5mg every second day for a couple weeks and then stop (or maybe consider 5mg ever three days..). Just a thought.

Way to go Carl! So just to be clear....Right now you find that the moment to moment relaxation is sufficient for you, and you don't do the 'intensive' paradoxical relaxation sesions?

Before you spend any amount of money on a trip you should spend $30 and read AHIP. It has the answers to most of your questions.

Calguy, CPPS is not a progressive disease. I don't know why he would say that. Perhaps if he's a well known uro he just gets the hardest cases. The important thing is that there are many tools for you to use in this forum to not only manage your problem, but to actually get better.

Re: What I wish I knew after 3 years in

If anybody out there can explain this one I would love to hear it. Bottom line it is very effective for me with no side effects. The second most effective product is Q-Urol by Farr labs this is pretty good, but sometimes I have a mild upset stomach with this one. When symptoms are bad I will take 2...

Yes, in a proportion of cases, but the lack of true inflammation inside the tissue of the prostate, which would occur if the prostate were infected (as you can deduce), means that (a) there is no infection, and (2) it suggests that the inflammation is probably coming from the outer layers of the ep...

Yes I find that during extended times of stress I don't have problems, but it's once I start to relax that the previous stress starts to manifest itself in the physical symptoms. I've noticed this several times.

So, even though no inflammation is evident in prostates of men with CPPS, markers for inflammation are infact found when examined for things like leukocytes?

Sorry, you'll have to bear with me and my simple mind. :-)

More evidence inflammation not linked to CPPS - Question

I have a question about the latest research study that was posted. I'm a bit surprised because I always thought that the nerves and muscles in the pelvis were capable of causing inflammation, as stated in the pelvic myoneuropathy page. I thought this is why some men with non-bac cp can get physical ...

Re: Post ejaculation pain

I ejaculated yesterday after a long hold off due to the fear of increased pain. The ejaculation itself wasn't to horrifying-I experienced some minor anal pain as well as the tip of my penis that lasted for and hour or so. I also urinated 15 minutes or so later. But 5 hours after the event I started...
