I use NSAIDS regularly for my pain and have *no* stomach problems relating to the use of them (yet). Sure I am aware of it but the risk is acceptable due to the relief they offer my symptoms.

you might want to go one extra step and make an outer pouch that's pretty, and washable.
:lol:

You can buy this type I've got one of these also, prefer the gel though myself softer for sitting on IMO. I prefer cold though not hot.

Try a cool gel pack to sit on I used that when mine was bad don't need it these days though, it did help when things where bad. The ones athletes use. If thats a bad idea please say anybody didn't seem to hurt me but I'm not a doctor so ... Hospitals (Well UK ones) have good gel packs that can be he...

I think MSM helps me a little. It's pretty cheap so worth a shot IMO seems a good tip off for me so far. :-D

I like serrapeptase works wonders for me (pain only but that's all that bothers me) but already posted on that before so ... I really like it in fact :!:

Interesting as for me who has no urinary symptoms that bother me anymore Elavil made it very difficult to pass urine it was like ...

The steroid nose spray when my sinus problem kicks up works wonders for me! I use as little as possible though but it seems to calm it down for months on end just a small run course of it - say a few days. :thumbs_up:

I don't think it ever goes away completely either, maybe one day through medical science (support the doctors on this site :!: ). Maybe if we get a new PRF this problem will go away but thats up to more people (sufferers) getting involved and offering donations without a PRF all we sufferers can do ...

Elavil knocks me out and after a few days makes it difficult to pass urine, no pain reduction although I did have hopes it would do that. I suggest doing what JD says here I didn't see it until I had taken a 25mg for a few nights running and it's side effects where to much to take the constipation w...

My Father had CPPS symptoms for around 3 years in his 20's then it just frittered out he says over time as gaps of it going away extending. Still gets the odd niggles to remind him of it though.

Been on Ultram for a year and it's done me no harm I can notice, sometimes when I change the brand I feel a little funny. I have no doubt if I stopped I'd feel ill for a few days but no addiction like I need to take it or anything like that just that the body will go through withdrawal if I stop it ...
