Re: Epididymitis Thread

jm8911, I've never really experienced a buzzing in my pelvis to be honest, but certainly got excruciating pain in the head of my epididymis (right side). Occasionally this would be felt in the left side, although it was a general discomfort in the testicle and not specifically located like with the ...

Re: Epididymitis Thread

Hi jm8911, I was diagnosed (or given a best guess) with chronic epididymitis by a Urologist I saw a few years ago when my pain started. I was also told I had epididymo-orchitis, prostatitis and painful testicle syndrome (whatever that is!!). I saw 4 urologists in total and got different 'guesses of ...

Re: Avoid situps at all costs

I also had problems doing sit ups and crunches and stopped doing them altogether. In fact I do a weight class at my gym and always leave early now as I don't want to do the abb workout I have also found that a regular bowel movement makes me feel better as well. I always had trouble going regularly ...

Re: Pelvic Floor Specialist in Toronto

I've seen an improvement but still have some issues, but like many people on here have said there is no quick fix. I think I'm on the right road and have proved that what I have is a muscular problem, in fact I feel worse when I go a few days without excercising, stretching or doing relaxation techn...

Re: My Status if interested

Excellent news mate, I hope you manage to get positive results with the rest of your issues as well! I know how you were feeling with the wedding, as I am due to be married next month, and for a long time have been anxious about it because I thought I'd be in pain. Now I am more optomistic, I might ...

Re: Anybody else have pain only on one side?

I don't have any trigger points that replicate the pain I experience, but I have been working on serveral in my abdomin, glutes and in my legs (quads and adductors). I find stretching and exercise helps a lot...

Re: Anybody else have pain only on one side?

My pain is mostly on the right side, but I occasionally get some on the left. It's quite strange when this happens as I do not feel pain in the right side - It's either one side or the other, but predominantly on the right! I have been to 4 PT sessions but haven't found any internal trigger points. ...

Re: Pelvic Floor Specialist in Toronto

I just had my first appointment with Carolyn and she certainly knew what she was talking about. Although she has not trained at Stanford she is a pelvic floor specialist and has various certificates which show her history of training in this field. She has also studied the Wise-Anderson Protocol and...

Re: Advice on nerve pain

Thanks for the advice and informations guys, I still have some pain there but it has subsided since I posted. It looks like I have irritated a nerve and it is taking a while to calm down. I'm going to see a PT next week so will ask her about it. And I won't be trying to work on any TP's myself until...

Re: Advice on nerve pain

This is definitely not bursitis, as there is no swelling and the area is not red or warm to touch. I'm not the best with anatomy (had to look up bursitis lol), but the best I can describe the pain is that it comes from the right corner of my hip, at the waist line (just above my trouser pocket), and...

Advice on nerve pain

Hi, Just looking for some advice from people more experienced than myself. I attempted to work on a (suspected) trigger point, before seeing a PT, in the psoas or lliacus muscle on the right side. It felt like a small pea and was painful to touch (not the same on opposite side, so I assumed it was t...

Stretching and symptoms

I started getting pain about 2 and half years ago, which was mainly in mt right epididymis and groin are with some lower back. I had never got any of the burning symptoms that some have described on here. In that time I never really got any exercise (except walking) because I couldn't because of the...

Re: What I've found after 2 years of this.. hope !

The one thing I have noticed about some stretching is that a couple of days later I might get a few symptoms that I don't usually get. I sometimes get a burning pain in my rectum and in the tip of my penis, which I haven't had. I think this might be because I am stretching muscles that haven't been ...

Re: What I've found after 2 years of this.. hope !

I've had pain for 2 and a half years now and in that time exercise was just impossible, as a result my overall physical health has deteriorated. I used to be quite fit (very fit at one stage) but would struggle to run for 10 minutes now! Anyway over the last couple of years my pain has gradually dec...

Re: Testicle question

pminturn: Are these trigger points you can access by yourself and are they external? I have an appointment with a PT at the end of this month so haven't done any trigger point release yet as I don't really know what to do or know where to look. I'm going to wait until I see the PT to see what she fi...
