Re: those with frequency

My initial bout was 6-8 months, where it was very often and painful. After that until now about a year I've had only frequency mildly, no pain or discomfort, just had to go more than I used to, didn't really get in the way. Since about 2 weeks ago I've had a flare where its much more frequent and di...

Re: those with frequency

cool I didn't really know what kind of pain meds to go for. He gave me liquid vicoden to take every 4 hours until I can get by without. I guess this means my problem could be with mast cells in general?

Re: those with frequency

I just got tonsillectomy surgery today, and the frequency is nuts! It could be anesthesia or vicoden? I have to pee like every 15 minutes. There is hope though. Just to let you guys no before this flare, I had almost 100% relief for a year. I had increased urination but no pain, and it was like ever...

those with frequency

What has helped you the most with reducing this? I see a lot of posts about medicine for pain but not this.

Re: CPPS or IC?

Its confusing for me. I'm not saying that my CPPS is a urinary tract infection. I've had a lot of tests done I was in hospital for awhile, so hopefully they would of told me if I had protein like your saying, yeah. It was my GP who did the urine test, I've had a hardcore strep infection and other in...

Re: CPPS or IC?

Well the bubbles vary. If I void straight into water, yeah TONS of bubbles. If its like against a urinal wall etc, only small amounts. As far as the cells he said for that I did not need to change my antibiotic type. So not sure if he meant it was a infection. Plus these bubbles are 100% different t...

Re: CPPS or IC?

Yeah, I guess that is true. The only new thing I've noticed, this has been the case for about 3 months since I initial got ill with a unrelated occurrence of severe strep infections. My urine has has very small bubble patches floating in it. It looks more like white patches of soap or something, you...

CPPS or IC?

I've been reading a lot lately about both conditions and I am having a hard time understanding what I have. I was diagnosed with CP by my urologist. I had a sonogram of kidneys (maybe bladder), antibiotics etc. I had initial bout for about 6-8 months, mostly frequent urination. However I also had bo...

Re: frequent urination runing my life

Def. When I first got it, I had frequency, pain in urethra with bouts of aches in other areas. (testicles, perineum. ) I did go to the urologist and she tested me for testicular cancer, sonogram of my kidneys or something. She diagnosed me with chronic prostatitis and I stopped going to her. It was ...

Re: frequent urination runing my life

Yeah perhaps I will give glass of wine a chance. If not at least it might get me a little tipsy yeah haha. My funds are pretty diminished sadly, I'm a college student and only work part time. So trips to CA and other things very unlikely for me as is expensive PT's. This is the first REAL flare last...

Re: frequent urination runing my life

Yeah its such an annoying sensation, it can really drive you crazy. I'm thinking the fish oil supplement I'm taking may actually be making it worse. I just took my multi and the fish, and about hour after its a bit worse. My multi actually has helped me in the past, so I think its not that. Prosta-Q...
