Re: Just got a flare-up, but am I still making progress?

I am distressed to hear that it may remain with me for my entire life, but how can it even necessarily be considered chronic? I have only had this ever since the beginning of summer, and immediately began to see doctors. Unfortunately, the first urologist did nothing more than make matters worse by ...

Just got a flare-up, but am I still making progress?

I've had to make a lot of changes lately to hope for a quick recovery, because I cannot afford to stay like this much longer. I've cut off all caffine (period), and drink primarily just water. I've cut off all spicy foods from my diet. I never drank alcohol that much to begin with and now I don't do...

Re: Can Valium cause major depression?

Yes, I am taking 2x 25mg of Elavil every night, and 5mg of valium once in the morning and then once again at night. This is what my psychiatrist suggested I be on for now but said I should back off to just once a day on the valium if it caused any problems. But this happened only 1 day out of the we...

Can Valium cause major depression?

A couple of weeks ago I started taking Elavil. It seemed to be working great. No side effects to speak of, and it helped with my insomnia and helped me get a good night sleep without any nightmares. Then the next week, I started taking valium. First few days on it during the weekdays, I felt fine fo...

Re: Walking and pain

I just tried walking for half a mile today which took me 15 minutes, and suddenly my lower abs feel extremely hot like they are inflamed and burning up which I rarely get.

Question about sitting

A lot of sources and posts I've read seem to claim that sitting for long periods seems to exacerbate symptoms that are already present. However, I wanted to share my experience with sitting to see if anyone could relate to me on this issue. If I sit down at the computer and am doing work, or somethi...

Re: Lying down feels worse than sitting down?..

Well that is certainly good news; I do feel better overall now than I was at the beginning of the summer, and it was only recently that the tremors began. But I am still curious why I sometimes can feel in more pain while lying down as opposed to sitting down. Sitting down can still hurt over long p...

Re: Frequency of ejaculation with CPPS?

So just an update on how I've been doing.. I've been abstaining quite successfully, but unfortunately the pain has been staying with me regardless. The fact that I am no longer following the bad advise from my doctor and am now cutting back does seem to have made the pain less intense, but for some ...

Lying down feels worse than sitting down?..

Lately I have been lying down, taking naps and trying to relax as much as possible, but it doesn't seem to be helping much at all. The previous week I tried walking once a day, for 30 minutes or more, at an average pace, and that didn't help either (but I was also drinking coffee, which I've stopped...

Need a recommendation for a PT in Houston TX

Just like the topic says, I was hoping someone here had experience with seeing one in Houston that worked for them so I could talk to one. I'd greatly appreciate any help regarding this :-)

Taking psychostimulants with Prostatitis = Bad?

Hello everyone, I recently came across a very noticeable and curious side effect I had when taking some prescribed psychostimulant drugs for ADD with my Prostatitis which I acquired about 2 months ago, and I wanted to see if anyone could relate to my reaction from taking them or knew of any possible...

Re: Frequency of ejaculation with CPPS?

Hehe, well the problem I think is that I was too chill for awhile there.. I kept thinking it had no consequences and have always been one to respond to pure impulses over using my brain for activities that I knew would make me feel better in the long run. But now that I know about what harm it can c...

Re: Frequency of ejaculation with CPPS?

2-3x a day is much too much. You are probably setting up an overuse syndrome in the pelvic nerves. Try 2-3x a week for a while. How do you find time for all this masturbating? Get out more, get involved in things outside yourself. I don't have to really find the time to do it, its just there. The u...

Self Trigger Point Release work (Manick's Case)

I'll try to keep this short and to the point. A little over a month ago I started experiencing slight irritating discomfort after prolonged masturbation sessions in my penis and scrotum. Not long after this, one night I experienced a very sharp radiating pain on the sides of my gut like someone was ...
