That's the thing with me you see. Antibiotics seem to help a lot. The first time I used them back in November I was completely fine after a week. Then my wise old Uri asked me to lower the dose and my symptoms creeped back up on me. This time around I have been on an 8 week course of Ciprofloxacin a...

Well I just posted about my bum pains too! My are not quite the same though. With me it feels like my bum has closed up (it hasn't but that's how it feels) and I get numbness in it. This has all come as I have lowered my antibiotic dose (Cipro). I find it tough to sit, but walking seems ok-ish. Thes...

Bum pain!

Hey Folks, As some of you know I am still quite an early case of Chronic Prostatitis and I dropped my level of Ciprofloxacin two weeks ago to 500mg per day after 8 weeks at 1000mg each day. I was pretty much pain free and doing excellently. I know Cipro is not well supported here, but with it workin...

Thanks Jon, that tells me the list of the blend and that the blend adds up to 540mg along with 5mg of zinc, but is there also anywhere with a more exact breakdown to find out how much Quercetin is in it or is it on that page and I am missing it?

How many Prosta-Q Tabs to take initially?

Hi Folks, I am doing really well with my current programme at the moment but have one eye on finishing up with my antibiotics in two weeks time and want to introduce Prosta-Q into the equation. I have ordered my free month's supply and hope it will be with me soon enough. My question to you is.... (...

I had never heard of Elavil as an effective treatment but I will certainly be looking that one up. Well guys, I have had a pain free week (close to symptomless apart from a sensitive bladder and bum for a couple of hours on Monday and Tuesday). I have stopped using the prostate massager as I have fo...

This is actually my second go with Ciprofloxacin after I initially used it with great success (no symptoms at all) for two weeks, but then my specialist asked me to lower the dose and symptoms returned. I then tried doxycycline which worked in patches but did not much else. The combines use of the ...

I have purchased HITP and am practising the stretches every other day. I am also practising forms of relaxation throughout the day and trying to relax as much as I can in terms of the muscles in my pelvic ares. I am currently using a prostate massager every 3 days to simulate a Digital Rectal Examin...

Pain on or after ejaculation: do you experience this or not?

Something has been bugging me for a while. The amount of people that talk about ejaculatory pain with prostatitis and in the broad definition (on this site) of prostatitis one meeting came to an observation:- "Pain after ejaculation is a very specific complaint that distinguishes prostatitis from BP...

That's great news Greg. You have inspired me to tighten up my diet like I did a few years ago for my Colitis. I am following a GF diet too and it has immediately helped a lot of my constipation issues (as it should do really!), which in turn is making a lot of anal pain around the prostate simply di...

riderfan and webslave,

I agree with your last posts. As I said as soon as I saw the smiley faces on the Farr labs website I dismissed the whole thing. With hindsight I should have reseached more into the product. You just get accustomed to it with experience I guess...

Anybody here get fever when there symptoms flare up?

I wondered if any of you could let me know if when experience any type of fever in your symptoms. I have found when my symptoms are at their very worst I come down with a fever and sweat heavily, especially overnight (to the point of waking up in what appears to be big patches of sweat running down ...
