Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

I know T and DHT have been discussed here on the forum. I don't see any conclusive opinions on DHT and CPPS (not BPH of course). I always thought there was a connection (i) some of the side effects of Finasteride are considered CPPS symptoms and indeed many people that used propecia ended up going t...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

Never cycled, no diabetes (not in family, and done tests showing no warning signs), and I smoked on and off but never heavy. I have been off for a year. I have seen people reporting numbness from muscular issues (compressing nerves) so I am not ruling this out. This could be of interest (would be in...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

Re ED, yes I still have it. Before it was terrible, now it is just bad. If I take Cialis I would be able to perform, but the next week I will be so numb that no I won't be able to perform at all. I know us as patient group tend to get more anxious which typically aggravates things like ED. Actually ...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

Here is the story of injury. Many thanks in advance for your thoughts. Year 2011 marked the 5th year or so that my CPPS symptoms have stabilized. CPPS symptoms were mostly triggered by ejaculation. Internal massage reduced the pain. But while the ED that I had from the onset (2003) had improved EQ r...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

To answer your question yes, but at first my erections were very weak and I had very strong PE these seemed to have improved to some extent, I still have some ED (since the injury above). At least I know with medication I am able to have sex, but that only makes the numbness (and that pain in penis,...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

I am in a lot of angst these days. This is because it has been 6 months+ that my penis and scrotum are numb. From 0 to 10, it fluctuated between 4 and 7 I would say, never going down below 4. I did not talk about it in my last posts because I was hoping that this will go away and I am associating it...

Re: Prostate stone / nanobacteria paper now published

Did this potential treatment make it to a next phase controlled placebo? Any experiences on this from the forum, or further thoughts? My uro said I have 2 calcifications in my prostate (they looked quite big on CT scan) I used to have only one 8 years back or so I think. He said it is very normal, 8...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

It turns out that there is something even better than valium, and it is Ambien (zolpidem). It just knocks out the tension almost immediately and give me a good night sleep, with less chances of tension/pain in the morning. How I wish there was some anxiety/sleeping pill that is both effective, does ...

By the way I think you were talking about bulbocavernosus, wasn't aware it was called bulbos cord too.

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

Thanks very much Caeder. My pelvic pain is a typically a dull feeling all over the pelvis, but mostly it feels coming (1) near the prostate and/or a (2) dull feeling in the bulbous cord. (1) With internal massage, the trigger point that hurts the most is a point right above the prostate. There is a ...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

OK I will tell my uro next time. my pain has worsened, I spent most of last 2 week stretching, 2 PT sessions, and meditating... Is there a specific set of muscles that need massaging for those with extra sensitive "Kegel muscles"? (I guess pubo [...] muscle. Now I will sound like a complete ignorant...

Re: Six years after (ppp's case)

I am wondering whether than Wise-Anderson wand is already available for purchase (I just saw the NYT article on the issue)? I saw they mention FDA approval, is this for efficacy or safety? I decided this year to do EVERYTHING to beat this. I have been meditating twice a day, stretching and torturin...
