Thanks LINK

Thanks for the great advice LINK.... I can't believe how many people have taken the time to offer words of encouragement... tonight I asked my wife to show me a number of yoga stretches for the pelvis (she's into yoga in a big way) and it was the first time in months that we've actually laughed toge...

Should I Try an Antihistamine???

I'm in the midst of the worst flare-up of my life (please see my posts in the general discussion section)... I'm wondering if I should try an antihistamine and, if so, which one?

Thank you so much everyone for the practical suggestions and kind words... I've spent many nights over the past few months despairing about whether I'll ever be able to have sex again or if I'll ever be pain-free again and crying or holding back tears and have even ended up in the hospital when I ju...

Feeling Hopeless

Thanks Webslave, Link, Benzo, Astrotitan for the words of encouragement. It means a lot to me. I don't believe I've ever tried to take control of this illness the way many of you have since I've been stuck in a "why me?" rut for so long. I'll try to answer your questions. Recently I had an MRI (I wa...

Looking for a Physiotherapist in Toronto for MR of the PF

I'm hoping that someone on this forum has done the legwork in finding a skilled physiotherapist in Toronto who can perform Myofascial release of the pelvic floor / pelvic floor trigger point therapy....

Was: Feeling Hopeless...Now: Feeling Hopeful

I don't know if this is an appropriate use of this forum or not.... I've been suffering from prostatitis for the past six years.
