Dayne learned from Wise.

My biggest problem with Dayne is that his website claims that he was symptom free. Whether or not that is true now I do not know. But I do know that at the time his website stated that fact, it was not true.

He's a really nice guy though.

My mother is understanding....my father is not in my opinion.

I have found that the way some family reacts can be hurtful emotionally to a CPPS sufferer. Try to make sure that this does not raise your anxiety.

Levator flare seemed to calm down when I started the anti-histamine (and stayed out of the pool).

Definitely think chlorine is a trigger. It brought back some symptoms that I was glad to have forgotten.

sounds good, but just as a warning... all physical and massage therapists say they know about TP therapy, but very few really know enough about it to treat someone with pelvic pain. And I'm not even talking about the lack of internal treatment. From my experience, you have to learn how to do it your...

how long does it take to tell if it is helping...days? weeks? months? any recommended dose?

sore levators - flare up

My levators have behaved fairly well for quite some time (almost a year). Now they have flared up, causing lots of pain/discomfort. They are quite sore, and I think I have to ease up on PT for a few days, since I may have overdone it a bit. I believe the cause of the flare was swimming in a pool. I ...

Trigger points on the glutes and piriformis can refer as lower back pain.

Re: Question for the Ontario (Toronto) guys.

Thanks for the feedback. Your experiences seem to reflect my own. However, at one point I was in despair and got a referral to a pain clinic . The staff there- doctors, nurses and physiotherapists- are professional, helpful, patient and, without exception, kind. It was from the clinic (and my GP) t...

Yes, the doctor situation is not good in Toronto for CPPS.

I don't see the situation here getting much better.

I went to Dr. Wise's clinic in May 2004. It was worth the trip. I have been independant of these local uros ever since.

I wouldn't put that many fingers in there if it is not comfortable. And generally I only put two fingers in. The five fingers was to illustrate my point that if I was relaxed enough to put five fingers, then surely that is more relaxed than you ought to be. And it's not really stretching to fit the ...

biofeedback

I was given a biofeedback machine (for rent) by a PT, and just wanted to express my frustration with the thing.....sorry in advance for the graphic details. When I first tried it, I was very frustrated with it. So what I soon discovered was that the whole process was much better if I just put my fin...

Sadly enough...my wife (who is not a PT) is probably the only one with any experience with internal trigger point therapy in Toronto. And no, she's not accepting any patients. You may want to do some work, and try to find a PT who is willing to learn. However, I had an interesting coversation with a...

My semen was very yellow when my symptoms were very bad. It's gotten much better now, although I don't think it's ever as white as it once was. Not sure what colour it even is lately... :lol:

At one point, I also felt that high doses of quercetin makes it more yellow too.

Just from a glance, that chair looks effective. I tried calling, and they said they don't have a price yet (or stock?). But I have to say, from looking at it, it appears to be a very pelvis friendly chair. Check out the cartoon video action of someone sitting on it at: http://haratech.co.kr/english...
