Re: High Blood Pressure Related to Pelvic Pain?

Yes, my Dad. I was nervous during previous doctor appointments because I thought for sure I was going to have to get a cystoscopy, which scared the hell out of me. The last few times it was taken, I want to say I was pretty relaxed. I'm not an overly stressed or anxious individual, so the high BP fo...

It has definitely been a great addition to my stretching regimen. Would you recommend any other yoga poses?

High Blood Pressure Related to Pelvic Pain?

I went to the health clinic today and my BP was 140/80 for the fifth time in a row. Keep in mind, I'm a relatively fit 24 year old guy who doesn't smoke or eat a lot of junk (at least not anymore!). This has been an issue I've been told to keep an eye on for a while, though none of my doctors have p...

Re: PT in New York

Thanks for the advice! I'll have to investigate the insurance Beyond Basics accepts. I'm currently seeing Roseanne Cruz there and I really think she's more proactive about finding trigger points than some of the other PTs I've seen. It sounds like she's had a similar experience with CPPS before, so ...

Re: Major flare after hot and heavy night

Thanks for the responses, guys. Let me tell you, doing my stretches, specifically the pigeon pose, REALLY helped me out. The first time I had a flare after fooling around, I was sore for days. It was before I found this site and learned about CPPS and pelvic floor dysfunction, so I was really scared...

Re: Major flare after hot and heavy night

Thanks, Gary. Unlike my last flare, I didn't feel sore until the next day. I found that doing a lot of my stretches really helped (my hip flexors especially where very taut). I may hop in the tub now to help out. It seems that the last time I had an intense physical night and orgasmed, I didn't have...

Major flare after hot and heavy night

After a really intense night with a new lady friend (lots of physical stuff without climaxing), I wake up this morning with some of the worst symptoms I've ever had. My pubic region, testicles and rectum both feel extremely sore and I'm trying to make the best of it (she's still here). This is my se...

Re: Prosta-Q Concern

Thank you for the thoughtful response. Since I wrote this article, I started seeing a physical therapist 1-2 a week, doing the stretches recommended in HITP, and just started using a Thera-cane for trigger points in my abdominals and inner thighs. I've also tried internal work on my own, but I'm sti...

Re: Internal PT

YIKES! None of that sounds good. As I said, I'm certainly very careful and still not really thrilled about having to do this kind of PT (whether it's me trying at home or my physical therapist). I'm sure it will become less of a big deal and I'll get over it soon enough. Has anyone on the forum inju...

Re: Internal PT

Thanks for the quick feedback.

I, of course, am very careful when dealing with the internal PT. How could I possibly injure myself? I'd hate to do more harm than good. Anything specifically to be careful of?

Thanks!

Internal PT

I'm trying to ween off my dependency on my PT---who's great but expensive here in NY---but I have a hard time doing the internal work on my own. Any suggestions? My fingers can't move very much and I don't seem to find more than one or two trigger points. Would using a dilator or a pencil (not the s...

Re: PT in New York

Yeah hey sorry for the late post but I have not been on the forums for a while. I also went to Beyond Basics PT in the past and I believe them to be the best PT in the NY area. I stopped going because of the steep price, I found another place that my insurance would cover, called Duffy and Bracken ...

Re: Tightness Behind Testicles with Erection

Thanks, Jay.

I do a lot of these stretches already, so I'll just keep at it in addition to PT every 5 days or so.

Re: Tightness Behind Testicles with Erection

Thanks for the response! What kind of stretches are recommended for opening up that area? Though I do all sorts of lower back and hamstring stretches, I definitely put an emphasis on anything that stretches the groin, especially the "pigeon pose," my new favorite.

Any other suggestions?

Tightness Behind Testicles with Erection

I searched the forums for this topic, knowing I've read something like it before, but couldn't come up with anything. I've been going to a PT in NY and starting to do stretches everyday and my pain is considerably better when I'm consistent. One problem I need perspective on: sometimes erections fee...
