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

Oh, I must mention I have started light exercising again. I'm doing the weights for upper body 2-3 times a week again and still it hasn't worsened my symptoms. I pay extra attention to dropping my pelvis in between sets. Also trying not to tense my abs and pelvic muscles during sets. I have had a ba...

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

I understand your frustration, try to be grateful for your good days. Keep at it and you will be 100%. I'm sure of it, since you seem to have found the trigger. As for me, I'm quite a few steps behind you. I haven't really been able to reproduce the burning symptom by manipulating the muscles. When ...

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

Carld: Ok, will quit the Q if I go for AB one more time. Neue: I will have to continue probing inside my rectum, if we have similar symptoms maybe I can find something too. Is your urethral pain also stinging/burning like UTI? Also, from reading Graemes posts, it seems his problems are similar too. ...

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

Yes, that´s my symptoms too. The most notable one is the urethral burning. It feels exactly like a UTI but urine cultures came out negative (have done two cultures of urine since this onset). Tomorrow I will do a home test checking for leukocytes in my urine. It´s so frustrating, feels like UTI but ...

Re: Difference between urethral stricture and muscle tension

How does one tell the difference between a urethral stricture and muscle tension? The symptoms appear to be the same: urinary urgency, pain during/after urination, post-micturition 'drip', etc. I do not think that symptoms from strictures would wax and wane very much. If you have had remissions for...

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

Yes, I'll wait a couple more days before I decide what to do. About antibiotics, what harm will it do waiting with the antibiotic treatment for a couple of months, as long as the symptoms don't get any worse? I have already waited two months since the onset. I mean, wait and see if it resolves with ...

Re: Question on the best position for internal self-treatment

Yep, I used the Theracane internally, no problem :-D . No seriously, I tried it once and won't do it again. It's too big so you have no control of what you are doing in there.

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

It sucks that he found the Strep. Most webpages indicate that Strep can actually be a cause of prostatitis. Urologists all over the world seem to think so too. There is one clinical research saying otherwise. Unfortunately I cannot change doctor since our healthcare system don't work that way. I hav...

Re: Question on the best position for internal self-treatment

I bought the Slender 7 too some weeks ago. I don't like it being so sharp at the tip, I am afraid of poking around to much with it. Think I will have to buy a Crystal Wand. I did try using the Theracane too, and it worked better, but lacks the curvature.

Re: Any idea what causes the burn after urination (seems common)

That must mean you don't have an inflamed uroepithelium, but referred pain from TPs, right?

If it was in fact an urethritis, the Pyridium should take away the feeling of irritation.

Re: Back in new millenium - I'm back

Consensus seem to be that trigger points in the anterior levator ani, at one o'clock and eleven o'clock, next to the prostate causes the urethral burning. Are these reachable with your fingers or do you need to use a tool? If trigger points are causing the burning, does this mean there is no actual ...

Re: Any idea what causes the burn after urination (seems common)

Is anyone still using Pyridium? I wonder why it isn't more widely used since the urethral burning seem so common. For me, it is my main symptom, along with the frequency.

Re: Aromatase inhibitors and DIM / CHRYSIN

You should definitely try Tamoxifen (Nolvadex) or Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid). As I stated in another post they really jack your FSH/LH up to normal levels again. I didn't have any side-effects at all, and they are readily used for men with infertility issues and sex-hormone insufficiency. I have on...

Re: Stress, Cortisol, HPA, CRH, adrenals, immunoneurology ...

My experience with T-increasing drugs have been the quite opposite. I have tried both Nolvadex and Clomid, and the (slightly, we´re not talking AAS here) increased T-levels make me more calm. I had blood samples on one occasion before, during and 2 weeks after Clomid-use. It increased LH, FSH and he...
