Helpful books

I was wondering if anyone has bought/read any different books than HITP and have found them helpful? I've bought The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Clair Davies but there's only a small section that I found relevant for myself. Before I go out and buy more I thought I gauge everyone's opinion on ...

Re: 10 months in and counting

It sounds like a bad experience and I'm not for one minute suggesting you are not being truthful about it, as you clearly were treated like this. But how do you know he used gay websites to try and learn about treatment methods? This seems a bit far fetched to me! If he did, why would he even tell a...

Re: Pain with sitting?

It's interesting that there are many different symptoms on here, and many different things that make people feel worse or better! But one of the things in common is nearly everyone feels worse after sitting for long periods of time. I think slouching may have something to do with it also, as I have ...

Re: So, it's my pelvic floor causing trouble, not my prostat

It's great that your urologist diagnosed you with CPPS, as the vast majority would dismiss it as an option - Maybe they are starting to come round! Also, you should realise that you don't need to have your pelvic floor muscles in a relaxed state ALL the time. The problem was that you had them in a t...

Re: a few comments

I looked for almost 2 years and saw 4 urologists before I found this board or even heard of CPPS! None of the Urologists I saw mentioned anything to do with muscles or stress and just told me I'd get better with time! I actually first saw the term 'CPPS' on a health forum from Australia, and it was ...

Re: Epididymitis Thread

jm8911: I haven't been able to find any other part of my body that refers pain to my testicle either, my PT said that sometimes you'll find areas and sometimes you won't it doesn't mean you can't be helped. I think it says in HITP that the protocol is more likely to work if you get referred pain. I ...

Re: Epididymitis Thread

jm8911: I think it's all to do with the nervous system to be honest. Not a problem itself with the nervous system but the fact that your nerves pass by many muscle groups to get to their destination. If there is a problem with that muscle then it can press on the nerve and the pain may be referred e...

Re: Toronto Prostatitis Centre. Should I continue going or n

I live in the GTA and haven't heard of this guy before, but from your experiences he sounds very shady indeed! Someone who calls himself Dr. and is not actually one would raise concerns for me immediately, then he wants to charge you $200 for a 'secret formula' that you're not allowed to know what's...

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 ...
