Re: Ecstasy (MDMA) and CPPS

Whoops, I sort of posted wondering about MDMA in another thread... So far I count 2 people on this board who have said that MDMA is beneficial. I don't touch anything other than the odd beer with friends anymore, but I remember reading that in the 80's psychiatrists were using MDMA with their therap...

Re: Has anyone tried marijuana?

Smoking dope 100% makes me worse. It seems to completely amplify the pain. Can't do it anymore. Smoking tobacco on the other hand makes me feel a little better believe it or not. I hate smoking though now, the only way I'll smoke is with a hookah. A friend of mine bought one a couple days ago and we...

Re: Article: A naturopathic approach to healing prostatitis

I took selenium supplements for a month, nothing. Curcumin for like 2 months, helps a litttttttle bit. My doctor and physio told me to stop the curcumin because it can start to irritate the bladder. Other than that this is basically saying BE HEALTHY. Wow, stop the presses. Eating well, exercising, ...

Re: Electroacupuncture relieves pain in CP/CPPS

I've gone for 8 sessions to an acupuncturist named Stephanie here in Victoria, who did a trial on 20 women with pelvic pain, with reasonable success, i think 5 got better, 5 had improvement, 4 felt a little better, and 2 nothing happened to. It's quite relaxing, and a great time to do body scan medi...

Re: Dr. Moldwin's "4 Step" Protocol for CPPS

Good info on weights etc. I have found that pushups/pullups are actually good for me too, and that any abs stuff in usually bad news, but this is good to hear from other people. One thing I've been thinking, is how often "in nature" are we humans meant to work our abs like that?

Re: What to try next?

Hi, thanks for the replies. Yeah, it probably would be a good idea to find out a little more about my physiotherapist. I think she might be the only one on Vancouver island though who deals with pelvic stuff...it seems to be quite difficult to find these people. I only found her because I ran into a...

What to try next?

Hi, I've been dealing with pelvic/urethral pain for about 13 months at this point, and am just wondering if anyone who has had a similar experience could help point me in the right direction, as I am starting to lose hope. My Pelvic Floor Physio (seeing for 3 months), has been saying my pelvic floor...

Re: Ashwagandha (HPA axis)

I just ordered a bunch of organic ashwagandha... Not here yet though. I am currently really getting into the herbal side of things, see if I can dig anything up to help me... My doc won't give me Valium. I've been taking quercetin for 2 months straight now... Earlier last year only did for a month.....

Re: Elavil and sleep

Elavil worked great for me for one month. After that I started to get night terrors = nearly zero sleep. I'm only just now off of Elavil. So far no night terrors, but my level of pain has gone back up again.
