Re: Very Itchy Anus!

I had that and now know it was nerves running into the butt twitching. Make sure you're doing gentle anal stretching. I thought it was fissures or worms from the kids but it was a nerve twinging that felt like an itch.

Re: Any luck with Lyrica?

I am with Jay that it is a helpful part of a bigger plan. Lyrica calmed my pain enough to get me on the plane to SF from Australia so I could get 99.999% better. It made the pain manageable. But it was only doing the relaxation and massage that got me out of pain. I am on it again for nerve pain fro...

Merry Christmas Webslave and everybody

Well its over a year now since attending the Wise Clinic and I am now essentially pain free. Thank you Webslave for this site because if I hadnt combed it I would not have flown to California and found my missing link - the trigger points and over contracted pelvic muscles. So Happy Christmas to all...

Re: Some Success with self-treatment?

Robert You make me laugh — obviously personality traits are such a big factor in this. I had a couple of reds last night, a decaf latte (still seems to upset me a bit) and lay awake in the night saying "right you know what makes you feel sick and gives you pain why do you do it?" Also back on the st...

Re: Some Success with self-treatment?

Andrew, You stand with one leg up on the loo or bath. With a gloved lubricated middle finger you insert it from behind. Then you pull gently to 12 o'clock 6, 9 and then 3. I even find laying on your side in the bath with right leg up usung right hand doing the same allows you to relax everything a l...

Re: Some Success with self-treatment?

A really good stretch is when you get home at night find a wall and put your bottom against the skirting board. Legs up the wall then spread them widely and then very consciously let the butt drop and the pelvis..this is the best non invasive one for me and I know other guys use it as well. One of t...

Re: Some Success with self-treatment?

I think the sphincter was most of my problem and was aggravated by all the other tight areas. After the course, when I was home, I was improving, but once I started doing the 12, 6 ,3 9 relaxation stretch David Wise explained, I am pain free. I think it is very common. Its all the butt clenching som...

Re: Stubborn trigger points (Ramana's Case)

YOU'RE RIGHT> That person is Sue Dengate who wrote the book Friendly Food. She helped me a lot in the beginning when I only had diet as a tool. I spent more time looking around the site it is the old Plant Poisons and Rotten Stuff. You're right, its all been upgraded. You are a demon on the PC to fi...

Re: Gluten linked to bladder pain

I tried D mannose in the very beginning. I think it is really only effective if you have an infection as it works on the e.coli bacteria. That's my understanding. It made me worse as it is a cranberry extract and is high in salicylates. DMcU I have never tried Quercetin. Generally anyone who is sali...

Re: Stubborn trigger points (Ramana's Case)

No Webslave it was a very comprehensive site that the Salicylate Sensitivity Network site says no longer exisits. Its a pity because it was very detailed on the diet and many things related to it. Not sure why its not there any more. The site was actually called Plant Poisons and Rotten Stuff. Maybe...

Re: Gluten linked to bladder pain

Gin and Volka are two alcohols that are low salicylate. As are many of the bland foods that agree with bladders i.e rice, meat, green beans and pears. The low salicylate diet helped me contol my symptoms most before I understood the neuro muscular cause. Salicylates irritate inflamed nerve endings i...

Re: Stubborn trigger points (Ramana's Case)

SSRI most definitely increased my bladder pain and this is the case with people with salicylate sensitivity. I dont know how it works but my muscles were so over contracted that my bladder was irritated and everything chemical (natural or other wise irritated it) Worm pills, SSRI's - Cipramil, Effex...

Re: Webslave - MRI result

Who knows whether if I toughed this out longer it might resolve. Its been 6 weeks and while the pain is less its more numbness now so that's not so good. He said this is the same as happened to me in 2001 and the surgery was a great success. I hope I can be as lucky as second op carries greater risk...
