Re: Define a flare-up

Gettingbetter: Sad to hear you haven't found someone. The hospitals here have PT's for helping women after pregnancy, they know at least some about pelvic floor muscles. My PT worked with this before, and she is willing to treat me internally, however she is not very good at it as I'm the first guy ...

Re: Stretches & trigger pts for urethral burning? (Hacksquat)

About excretions, discharge of clear fluid from my penis. This happens mostly in conjunction with two events: When I'm having a boner or shortly after (even if it's only hard for < 1 min, kissing my girlfriend a bit too much or whatever). I understand it's perfectly normal to have some excretions wh...

Re: Stretches & trigger pts for urethral burning? (Hacksquat)

Thanks for the input! I'll give it a go again, massaging the Bulbo-muscle has been part of my regimen, but not daily as you advice. About clenching of this muscle, as well as the PC-muscle, I feel that they are not only contracting upon ejaculation, but also when I get a boner. So, maybe its not onl...

Re: Stretches & trigger pts for urethral burning? (Hacksquat)

Loose fit works best for me too. The back of the testicle feels a bit "thicker" than the other one, not only the epididymitis, but the thready things (name?) leading to the testicle too. Not much though, hardly visible to the eye, no major inflammation but I can feel it. I have an appointment with a...

Re: Stretches & trigger pts for urethral burning? (Hacksquat)

A new symptom has bothered me the last week. I have tenderness in my (or really behind) left testicle. Really difficult to pinpoint where it is, doesn't seem to be the ball, but more behind it (epididymis). This is not new though, had similar feelings in my right ball somewhere Feb/March. It then we...

Re: Stretches & trigger pts for urethral burning? (Hacksquat)

I have now booked an appointment for psychotherapy too, CBT. Hope it can help me to better deal with this disorder, and possibly helping me with the relaxation too. About relaxation and muscle spasm, I feel I have more difficulties relaxing my pelvic muscles when sitting than standing (except when s...

Re: Bad experience with baclofen

Ok, thanks for the warning. I was prescribed 3x10mg/day. My GP knew nothing about possible effects or sides for that matter, he had almost never prescribed this medicine before (and most certainly never for CP/CPPS). About possible effects from it, does it need to be used for a prolonged period of t...

Re: Define a flare-up

Great, will try Baclofen shortly, I got 10 mg's from my GP. He don't know much about CP or CPPS, but at least he is willing to prescribe me things I suggest. Either I will try this weekend, before I switch Mirtazapin for Elavil, or I will have to wait some weeks til I'm on the Elavil. Better to intr...

Re: Mirtazapine (Remeron) vs. Elavil

Ok, my doctors advice was 30 mg. But, what is your experience of changing drugs like this, is he right I can simply shift from one day to another? Anyway, hope Elavil works better for me than Mirtazapine/Remeron, at least it seems that more have been helped by Elavil than Remeron in the success stor...

Re: Mirtazapine (Remeron) vs. Elavil

Today I finally got a prescription for Elavil (Tryptizol). How do you recommend I do the switch from Mirtazapin to the Elavil. My GP said I could change right off, no need to lower the dose of Mirtazapine first...? He prescribed me 10 mg tabs, said I could try 3 at night (30 mg). About this I think ...

Re: Stretches & trigger pts for urethral burning? (Hacksquat)

About stressors, yes, I have had additional stress. But, I had some stress during my 9 months remission too, so it is difficult to pinpoint mental stress as the sole factor of setting this off. I do realize the importance of relaxation and positive outlook on this though, so I am trying deep breathi...

Re: Stretches & trigger pts for urethral burning? (Hacksquat)

An update on my case: I did try the Cipro again, given that I was symptom free for such a long time (9 months) between my first onset and my current one (now since January). They also found Strep in my EPS, which could possibly cause problem... anyway, 9 weeks of Cipro did not help. Back to square o...

Re: New Guy here, My STRUGGLE (long story)

another symptom I have is white cloudy urine in the colder months of the year I think I somehow screwed up my sphincters with pc muscle exercises, now semen or prostate fluid can leak in my urine and urine could also possibly leak into my prostate and such? I don't know I have prostatic fluid in my...
