Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Yoink, I basically do all the supplements that I mentioned before and then 20 minutes relaxation in the morning and again in the evening. Evening I do at least 30 minutes of stretching focusing on groin, hamstrings, hips. I use a soft ball and lie on my back and side placing the ball right in the sp...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Yoink, sorry to hear about your flare. It sounds like there is a lot of hope as you have not tried many of the medications / supplements that have helped a lot of people and you have not yet followed the Wise / Anderson Protocol religiously as seems to be required at least for 6 months or so. We hav...

Re: Hello all! New to the forum but not new to CPPS

Most of my story is in another thread in this section, but I just wanted to add that I also remember the exact moment that symptoms started. It was during ejaculation. One moment everything was normal and the next moment this sensation appeared and I immediately knew that something was wrong. Since ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Thanks for the clarification webslave. How difficult is it to self treat trigger points located high on the Levator Ani? As Yoink said, it seems there is a razor thin margin between pressing on the prostate and pressing on the Levator Ani. Yesterday I felt pretty good all day. Maybe a 5 or so. I alw...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Hi Yoink, Have you tried Alpha Blockers? Many people seem to get good results with these after initial side effects... Also, some people get good results with Lyrica. I haven't tried either, but they are on the list. I also may try Baclofen and Flexeril depending on how things go with the clinic nex...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Hi yoink. I'm on my phone now so I'll post more tomorrow when I have my laptop. What medications have you tried? Are the back doctors confident these symptoms are not related to that injury? I had the same horrible flares when I tried some of the internal stuff with a prostate massager. Maybe I was ...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

George, thanks for this. How much relief did Uroxatral give you? How long did you have to take it at what dosage before you started to feel improvement? I still have the remaining Uroxatral in my house and I am kind of thinking of trying that maybe after I get back from Santa Rosa. But I would reall...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Hi Burner2K. I have not tried Baclofen or Lyrica so it's good to hear that you are getting some good results with them. I will add them to the list as perhaps something to try in the future. Did you ever try any Alpha Blockers? I tried one pill of Uroxatral and it literally knocked me out like a tra...

Re: No pain - just constant sensation of needing to urinate

Hi Burner. Sorry for the very late reply. I found that constantly coming to this site seemed to make me think about my symptoms more and perhaps even make them worse. Since last posting, I went to a Neurologist (didn't find anything) and I got complete blood tests for hormones and micronutrients. I ...

Silodosin

Has anyone tried Silodosin? From what I gather it has similar benefits as Flomax and the like but without the low blood pressure/dizziness. But the wikipedia entry says that it is being considered as a male birth control pill as it can stop ejaculation??? Any danger in stopping ejaculation? I tried ...

Re: Had a 'Lively Discussion' with my GP!

These doctors are all really funny because they are useless in helping and so conclude that you are imagining it all. I've heard it all before. It's remarkable to me thy these doctors don't take some interest in getting to the bottom of what really is going on. It seems like they are happier to send...

Re: Twitching Penis During Relaxation and Stretching

Thanks for this webslave. It's really encouraging because it is happening only during stretching and relaxation and only in the penis, about an inch from where the constant discomfort comes from. I can see it and feel it happening. And I stretched for months without this happening so I theorize that...
