Re: No Pain Symptoms but only Urinary symptoms - Frequency, urgency and Burning

I am sorry you feel so bad and seem to have tried a lot. As webslave mentioned you may have symptoms that are a bit more on the interstitial cystitis side of CPPS. You might try PT on your own (maybe find a PT who does regular external trigger point work to guide you) and treatments more focussed on...

Re: No Pain Symptoms but only Urinary symptoms - Frequency, urgency and Burning

Sounds really annoying, hope you will improve. I guess you have many options to try. Could be "IC" but could also be overactive bladder since you have no pain. Have you tried anticholinergic drugs (eg tolterodine/vesicare)? Maybe try physical therapy (PT) as well to see if you have trigger points wh...

Re: Some specific questions for you all

With regard to IC/CPPS. I agree I might have to have a cysto to rule out stuff. I'll give it a little time first. But there is an inherent risk with regard to an IC diagnosis. We all believe here that in "chronic prostatitis" there is absolutely nothing wrong with the prostate. In IC however there s...

Re: Some specific questions for you all

To HCR123. I have gotten better for a long time, many have. You will too. I am 100% sure of that. Definitely not easy to stop catastrophizing, I know. Try to have faith, yoga, PT, rest days, meditate, relax and dont try to rush it cause it will take time. You can't fight this, its more acceptance th...

Re: Some specific questions for you all

Dear all, My last post was in 2011. Since then life has been pretty good. Now and then some complaints or little setbacks but nothing major. I remember thinking just recently "I will never develop this again, I think I am over this". Well, I guess you will never really get over this. This maybe our ...

Same here, seems to come and go these days. Just the nature of the beast I suppose. Relax, dont panic and you will get back to where you were soon. Keep us posted and good luck.

Re: Wise Anderson Clinic July 2011

Dear George,

Thanks for your account of the WA clinics. You mentioned several times that your sitting pains reduced during treatment. Maybe its difficult to say but do you attribute this to the treatment of internal or external trigger points and which were responsible in your case you would say?

Re: Some specific questions for you all

Dear all. After having had complaints for almost a year my symptoms suddenly disappeared about 8 months ago.I can tell you life was a lot better without CPPS! I almost started to feel that I was cured. However, a few days ago I suddenly felt some rectal pain and all of a sudden the symptoms reappear...

Re: Gluten linked to bladder pain

This might be of interest to people who believe gluten might be an important factor. Taken from journal watch: Gluten caused gastrointestinal symptoms in some individuals without celiac disease. Many people without celiac disease actively follow gluten-free diets and insist that gluten produces symp...

Re: Crazy Man and the need for some compassion

On a personal note I am a bit concerned with this thread. It has come to my attention that a long lasting fight has been going on between non believers of the Wise Anderson protocol and others. With this thread this fight has come to this website. I have no knowledge on whatever happened between the...
