Critical Massage comments (not bad - critical!!)

I was just thinking that massage is such an old treatment that I feel it highlights the lack of movement in CPPS up until very recently. I say this because the urologist (retired now) I was seeing told me he had been taught yes taught massage in the 50's so if someone taught him and someone taught t...

I swear by garlic oil capsules for removing this feeling, I take more than the low maintenance type dose though on the brand instructions I use. It was very low and by upping it slightly I found it worked better. However check with your own doctor before doing stuff like that. I am not a doctor and ...

Diet

Quick observations I have made in my own case relating to diet:

-->Cheese and wheat cause pain.

-->Fish (and fish oil) reduces pain.

In my case I think this is due to inflammation effects from these foods?

I find actually just living day to day with CPPS is better than getting all stressed out about the future. Everyone is different though.

Just enjoy the good days and get through the bad ones as best you can.

In the UK it is *not* possible to have CPPS and get disability you need to just suffer the pain and work. This is what I was told. I got my urologist to write a letter to the UK disability agency to tell them CPPS *is* worthy of disability (he agreed BTW fully I didn't push him) as I found out that ...

Is the global population not like over 6 billion people? Taking 2% of that figure leaves a big number to be suffering IC and CPPS assuming they are linked in some way. Women and Men I mean.

Is 2% enough to make these diseases in essence common?
