I'm seeing a doctor tomorrow luckily. It says that dyspnea is a common symptom of numerous medical disorders. I had a physical back in January, normal EKG and normal lung function. Ruling out anything wrong with my heart/pulmonary system, does this sound logical that the pelvic tension is causing th...

I would agree that some of these episodes are anxiety attacks, but others are a bit different. For example, today at work the task at hand involved some physical exertion, and when I finished I had to just casually walk around as I let my chest area settle down. To the best of my knowledge, I was no...

chest tightening/difficulty breathing

To be safe, I'm going to have this checked out, but I'm about 99% sure this is caused by the tightening of the pelvis, that it has somewhat grasped other parts of the body and is causing tightening there as well. I can say this with near certainty because there are times when I've walked out of phys...

Yeah some experience here, I would have to say I got mixed results. The one I went to had heard of Headache in the Pelvis but knew little else, so they just prescribed me the internal physical therapy as I requested. They did start me out on Neurontin for the pain and Paxil for the anxiety, as the o...

Looking for a Dry Needling specialist

Just recently heard of another person having success with dry needling, so I've finally motivated myself to check it out, but I'm having a tough time finding a therapist. Is anyone here going this route? Of course I plan on continuing PT and relaxation. I'm in the northeast New Jersey area, close to...

Dahn Yoga

Hey everybody, its been awhile since I posted. I just thought I would mention this cautionary tale - since many of us use Yoga to complement physical therapy, help to relax, etc. For the past 8 mos. or so I've been going to a Dahn Yoga center, and while I have found some beneficial things about this...

Apparently someone who attends the same yoga center as I do has a Rife Machine at home, so there's a chance I could be giving it a try in the near future. I know this is an old post, but does anyone here have any experience?

I'm kind of in Scooby's boat, my bowels can have varying effects on my pain. Typically, missing a bowel movement is often a sign that I'm too tight and I can feel it as well, almost like being constipated. Yet I have noticed times when, after being moderately active for a few hours, I may have misse...

Abdominal exercises in Yoga

For the past few months I've been practicing Dahn Mu Do yoga, and overall the effect on my health has been positive, the classes range from moderate to intense. The head instructor is a wonderful Korean woman who genuinely cares for all the members, and she's been very intent on helping me with CPPS...

I'm about to start renting one as well, as the PT I just saw has used it successfully on some men, one of which she described as being very similar to me.

Is anyone still using a TENS machine or some kind of electrical stim? If so, are you getting some relief? I ask because I finally tried this with a physical therapist last week, they've had success treating men this way and they feel its better than physical therapy. Not sure if I agree, but I felt ...

Deep sleep tends to give me some relief, it takes away some of the 'sting' and the pain/tension is a bit more manageable. But of course the brain can be active while asleep, and I've had many dreams that I wouldn't call nightmares but were laced with anxiety, and after waking up would feel tense in ...
