Re: Gmccormack's case

Just signed on in I think over a year. I'd like to give some positive news, might not help all of you but I have been on this board through the worst of times and reading something positive always eased some pain. I even had success stories on my wall a few years back. My pain has gone from debilita...

Re: Gmccormack's case

I agree with the potential of mast cell issues, however my life is very tough, I need something that can give me that kind of blast relief. It's only at 10mg and my physician said at that dosage I would "Not likely" experience those issues, no doubt it CAN happen.

Thanks for the input.

update on GMcCormack's case

Hi Guys, It has been a year since I checked in. I have had many ups and downs throughout the year. I wanted to share a protocol that has worked best for me after much trial and error. Believe me when I tell you, my quality of life has been atrocious, I have gone from doing triathalon's and lifting w...

Re: CPPS vs. Pudendal Neuralgia

I agree with Webslave here, but why don't we see this at the professional sporting level with incidence so high? I guess you wouldn't be listed on the IR with CPPS...but sports and stress go hand in hand so this condition must be present at the elite level. In terms of PN I met a guy at the WA clini...

Re: Silodosin

This is just another alpha blocker study, right? A newer one.

I think alpha blockers have a role in CPPS in those patients who have start and stop or split stream issues but it doesn't do anything for the pain symptoms.

I wonder if they'll do another study with Silodosin and Cipro combination?

Re: pelvic pain social media

Agreed. I can guarantee you though that someone will be duped by "advertising" like this. I don't think its wrong or unethical for Drs to advertise their procedures or medical care but this one in particular is tough to swallow. Imagine having incontinence (catheter), erectile dysfunction, both for ...

pelvic pain social media

I was reading some studies on PUBMED a few nights ago and in my searches came up with Krongrad's social media site prostatitis.ning.com For those of you who don't know Krongrad's MO is prostate removal even in guys in their late twenties. I don't want this to be about the ethical nature of the proce...

Re: AUA 2011 - Highlights

Thanks for posting this. This AUA is somewhat disappointing and boring, there is nothing that sticks out as a ground breaking medication or more data on etiology of what exactly is going on in most patients diagnosed with CPPS. I researched ESWT awhile back, called several hospitals, and its only re...

Re: Tanezumab significantly reduces pain in IC

I was in this trial and Pfizer took it out of their pipeline because a small subset of patients got worse. Subsequently, 2 other big pharma took it out of their pipeline when the FDA started asking questions. The only company left in this realm is Abbot labs with one in phase I. Stepping away from C...

Re: Symptom free for the first time...for a week

I have had success treating dysuria and general urethral burning by significantly limiting my fluid intake. I void only twice per day. Early on in this journey the more water the better I thought: "have to clear out the system" , "water is the building block for everything" this was my mentality. Th...

Re: The DABBEC Phenotyping System

Any idea how many phenotypes exist? I agree with Dimitrakov that the condition changes over time, this makes the number of phenotypes practically endless. You could have patient A with urethral burning in 2006 - phenotype A, then in 2008 have testicle soreness - phenotype B, because the patient has ...

Re: Next Support Group Meeting

I have been to the WA clinic . In my view a viable treatment is only good if it can be replicated by others, for example, the Manilla protocol is not good because only one dr claims success in performing it, while others do not. I think that other physical therapist/massage therapists have the abili...

Neis,

so are you saying that you were not adrenally fatigued? Did you have any blood tests?

new findings on CFS

This article was in today's Chicago Tribune. I actually posted a study I think from the NYT stating that XMRV was the cause of CFS, now it looks like that study was wrong. Another condition completely shrouded in mystery...
