Re: Testicle question

Yes I've had two ultrasounds done, one in the UK and one here in Canada, and both came back normal! I did hear from one of the urologists that I had a small cyst on the left hand side, but he said it wouldn't cause any pain - Anyway the pain is in the right hand side. I still think my testicle shoul...

Epididymis / Testicle pain (Scotcan's case)

I predominately get pain in my right epididymis and the right side of my groin, although I do get some pain, from time to time in the left side. The pain is in the head of the epididymis, and it is painful to touch. I have noticed that when I squeeze my abdominal/pelvic muscles that my left testicle...

Re: Question about how often you think about CPPS

maverick, I'm just new to the concept of CPPS and stress being the main cause of all the syptoms, and I have yet to receive my copy of HITP (On order). I have been trying to conciously relax my muscles and think about positive things. I find slow deep breathing, in through the nose and slowly out th...

Re: So...the running thing...

I'm new to these forums and I'm just learning about CPPS and treatment using the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol (Although I've suffered for 2 and a half years now!). I thought the whole point was to find out what stresses you in life and to either cut back on this or to learn to relax more when dea...

Re: Pelvic Floor Specialist in Toronto

I contacted both Nelly Faghani and Carolyn Vandyken, but wasn't able to speak to eith in person. I spoke to Nelly's brother (who is also a PT) and he contacted her and called me back. He said she was experienced with pelvic floor trigger point release and was familiar with the Stanford/Wise-Anderson...

Re: Has anyone tried acupuncture?

Thanks for the feedback gmccormack I was referred to acupuncture before I even knew about CPPS and this website, so I thought I'd give it a go! I think the theory behind the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol makes more sense to me, as I experience nerve like pain which is worsened by stressful situati...

Has anyone tried acupuncture?

Hi I'm new on this site but have found some useful information here which has given me renewed optimism! Before I found this site I was referred for acupuncture therapy by a urologist I saw and started this week. The doctor who is treating me is also a urologist and says he has had some success in t...

Re: Pelvic Floor Specialist in Toronto

Thanks in advance

Re: Pelvic Floor Specialist in Toronto

ajama, This is good to hear, if you would be so kind as to keep us updated with how it goes that would be great! I'm in the GTA and am just about to start accupuncture therapy to see if that helps me. I've tried everything else, seen 3 urologists, took many antibiotics and had a course of nerve bloc...
