Re: Have you other problems besides this one?

I was reading Sarno's book, "Healing Back Pain, The Mind-Body Connection" last week. In the book he refers to Prostatitis, Frequent Urination, Dizziness, Ringing in the Ears and a list of other ailments as being equivilant to TMS (Tension Myositis Syndrome). I thought this was very interesting when...

Re: Have you other problems besides this one?

I have sciatica in my right buttock leg. Sometimes the sciatica is worse than the CPPS, and sometimes the other way around. But in your case, it sounds like you have a serious stress related issue. You should go see your doctor immediately and talk about the variety of anti-anxiety treatments that ...

Re: I think this is causing me anxiety

No doubt it is. The problem with situations like yours is that the more you think about it, the worst it gets. It's like telling someone not to think of a pink elephant and then that's all they can do. I have the same problem when I go to the bathroom at a stadium. They use pee troughs so they can s...

Other problems since you got this one

When my CPPS first started on April 6, 2007, I was in really good health. But from that point until now, I seem to be developing more and more other symptoms that don't seem to have anything to do with the CPPS per se, but fit in nevertheless to some degree. Two months after I got CPPS I developed t...

Re: Childhood stress linked to inflammation in adults

I found this article fascinating. Being a very highly-strung, worry-wart, catastrophic thinking kind of man and having a horrible childhood where I suffered fifteen years or so of physical and emotional abuse, I have always wondered what caused what. It's like the proverbial chicken or the egg quest...

Re: Doctors are such a pain!

BTW, what kind of work are you in (do you sit a lot?) and what physical activities (if any) do you pursue? I'm a teacher, so I don't sit a lot during the day usually. Today I feel great with the exception of this little bitty twinge that I'm starting to feel in my left calf. I think I'm going to bu...

Re: Orgasm triggering symptoms

It's nice to hear some validation. There are plenty of guys who flare with an orgasm. I just can't believe I can't find a doctor that accepts the fact that it is possible. Why are they so closed minded? It just amazes me that a person can practice medicine says out loud that his patients know more a...

Doctors are such a pain!

I went to see my 4th Uro today. I thought things would be different, but they weren't. I provided him with a short two page synopsis of what has been going on and like everyone else I've seen he couldn't be bothered to read it. He told me basically the same thing as everyone else. I haven't had time...

Re: Antidepressant Paxil (paroxetin), safe to take?

Having been on just about every anti-depressant and anti-anxiety drug known to man, I can tell you that Paxil is one of the worst. Granted everyone responds differently to SSRI's, but Paxil seems to be one of those anti-depressants that really cause some nasty long term effects. Do a Google search a...

Orgasm triggering symptoms

What advise do you guys have regarding sex? As I posted before orgasms triggers horrible flares that last three or four weeks. It's just not worth a few seconds of pleasure to go through two or three weeks of torture. I not only can't have sexual release, I have to deal with the CPPS/IC at the same ...

Re: Just wanted to introduce myself

Thanks you guys for the feedback and welcome. It's nice to know I'm not in the boat along with this thing. I've noticed that many people have posted about this contraption that purchased at the IC site that aids in sitting. I was curious if those who use it, use it all the time not matter how they a...

Re: Cannot sleep

There is nothing worse than not being able to get to sleep. I use the following: Seredyn Amoryn Mellodyn The Seredyn is for chronic worry and anxiety. It's a proprietary blend of different herbs. Amoryn is for depression, but it takes a couple of months until you feel a difference. Like the Seredyn ...

Just wanted to introduce myself (Strobers Case)

I was referred to this site from another man at the IC site. Based on my symptoms, it seems that should be here, but at this point I really don't know. This is my story thus far. I have been dealing with this affliction since April 6, 2007. For the last 2-3 years prior to this I frequently had to us...
