Re: Can't stop feeling like I have to urinate. HELP!

Thanks Calguy. I just finished reading the 15 pages of your "My Progress" thread. It was very helpful to read. Well, I am almost positive that my issue is due to stress and anxiety. I have been working at reducing my anxiety naturally but after years of fighting it myself I finally acknowledge that ...

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Thank you Carl, for your reply. I will def. see what I can do about these options. Aleve (naproxen) is now on my shopping list ;0) Maybe I do have OAB? My main and somewhat only symptom is a constant urge to pee. Not every half hour to 2 hours as is often mentioned, but constant. It doesn't go away....

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Some folks seem to have had relief from Ditropan, right?
Is there a chance I could find relief? If I have trouble passing I will discontinue.

What vicious cycle do you mean?

I plan to try Ativan on a full time basis. IT seemed to help the times I had it.

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Thank you Carl. It's great that I found this place and people like you. I feel lucky for that. One question... Is it possible to be on conventional meds to allieviate my symptom at the same time as I work at the protocol? Will such drugs inhibit my true healing? Also, what drugs can I ask about when...

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Your absolutely right. This isn't about whether my symptoms will improve or worsen. It's about calming down and accepting life as it is and enjoying it as much as I can. I just had a fantastic experience. I just sat on a heated blanket and relaxed my bladder as if I was about to go pee. This alone m...

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Thanks Carl and webslave.

I have been trying to relax.

Onset?
Early symptoms?

Is there any hope I have to not develop the other symptoms?

Re: Can't stop feeling like I have to urinate. HELP!

calguy, you started with just an urge to pee?

Other symptoms started after?

can you tell me or direct me to your story?

I currently have had to pee for over 2 weeks and I'm hoping to get relief somehow.
Thank you!

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Sorry for the crazy post count...

But, there seem to be others who have only or started out with only a very bad urge to pee.
I guess some of them developed other things which I'm hoping I don't.

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Isn't it possible to have CP and mostly only have to pee? I do get some occasional pain between scrotum and anus (perinuim?) The only thing that seems to help the urge to pee is to (sounds strange...) massage my anal sphincter. It makes the urge go away while I'm doing it but it comes back when I st...

Re: New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Really? I have some pain in my prostate. The Urologist did a DRE and there was some pain. Sometimes I feel like my prostate is a bit sore. Not too bad. Not nearly as bad as the urge to pee all the time. What else could this be? I've have several urine tests and cultures. Not STD or infection. A litt...

etaoinshrdlu, you've been dealing with this for 7 years?
Do you ever get relief?

I have the same symptom.

I would love to speak with you if possible. Thanks, Matt M

New to this... kinda freaking out :0)

Hello, I was told by the urologist almost 2 weeks ago that I have Prostatitis. I didn't know what it was at first but have been reading a LOT. He gave me Cipro for 2 weeks and told me it will go away. My only symptom really is that I have to pee all the time. It rarely stops. It came on all of a sud...
