I'd say I have some of those traits...maybe not so much the perfectionist thing however. Anxiety has been a big problem for me, coupled with; trying to finish a grad degree while working full time, job stress, undergoing major surgery and having a long distance relationship all add up after a while....

Cysto won't do anything for the CPPS I imagine..I've had 5 of them. I also had some stricture repairs and it didn't help the CPPS. I wouldn't worry about the stricture if it's right near the tip of your penis, they can dilate that easily - and might even let you dilate it yourself. I'd give yourself...

Hi, I don't know if any other people here are in the same boat as me, but I've had two, yes two surgeries to repair bad strictures. These were Urethroplasty surgeries, where they cut open my perineum and lay a buccal graft (piece of my cheek) around the damage portion of the urethra. I had my last s...

I've used Ibuprofen quite a bit to relieve my symptoms..it helps, to a degree, especially with pain in the perineum and the shooting pains I get down each leg. It helps a bit for my urinary frequency as well. Problem is that I was taking some many during the day, that I started getting really bad he...

Thanks all for the feedback. I am reading and hopefully learning. At least there are others out there who are going through similar things I am. I worry that the stricture surgeries have really messed things up for me (I had my perineum cut open twice to place grafts around my scarred urethra) - but...

Thanks for the reply Scotsman, I have pretty much given up on a fix for this...but I will look into those books. I have heard a bit about the Headache book, but being skeptical, haven't purchased it. I will do so soon. Part of that skepticism is reading all the supposed fixes, drainage, infections, ...

My story of woe

Hi, I am a new member to this site, and am just starting to go through all the posts here to learn as much as I can. I've been dealing with prostatitis, pain in my pelvis and general urinary problems for close to 12 years now...it all started when I was 18 and been a nightmare since then. I don't ha...
