IC on UK TV by Miss Evans

On Channel 4 on UK TV some eccentric women Uro just took a dudes bladder out for IC. *Full* op was on TV, kind of interesting but I would never go for surgical treatments myself for pain but this dude seemed to be suffering worse than us. This Uro had "I love Craig David" written on her surgical cap...

My symptomatic switch is that I used to have **just pain** (all sorts of pain up and down relating to triggers etc) and I had **nothing else which I would say bothered me** then I began relaxing physically and mentally like the book says and stretching. Then Pain vanished to be replaced by a feeling...

Relaxing too much

I found doing too much relaxing (actully relaxing the muscles) of the pelvis can bring on spasms (ejaculation feeling but I can hold it back). What a mess I've got into with this, one time it went like this at the end of last week during relaxing the muscles and stretching them and now it will not s...

BOOKS!

Can anyone tell me why doctors in the last 2 books I have read on this disease feel the need *not* to mention our sites (sufferers sites (chronicprostatitis.com and this forum)) at all in the areas where they mention sites and groups etc? Other sites get a mention that don't provide as up to date in...

Atarax will make anyone sleep it knocks me out at 25mg I can only take it at night but it is wearing off slowly this effect so I doubt this is a long term thing. Melatonin I got some of that from the US but it knocked me out way to much to continue with it it was way more powerful than Atarax in tha...

Your local NHS urologist is best to just get bog standard tests as that's *all* you will get anywhere else in Scotland believe me I have done the rounds! Your GP should have sent you to a Urologist by now if you have continuing symptoms. You should have had the basic tests, all Scottish (UK) Urologi...
