Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks, Davy, for the tips. I'll try that. I think I just needed to vent as my disappointment was at an all time high. I'm actually overall still better than I was. One of my worst symptoms is low libido. When you have that, dating is much less appealing, and sometimes feels like going through the m...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks Webslave. It makes sense. I'm just incredibly frustrated about the inconsistency of this thing at this point. I was on a serious roll for 2 weeks, the longest I've ever gone with consistent improvement, and then BOOM, just like that I feel as bad as ever this week. This time is playing with m...

Re: Newbie - This forum is a godsend!

Hey Davy, I've been reading your posts and one thing that we have in common is sore/painful hips. I don't know when this started for me but it's definitely gotten worse over the last year or so. The last few weeks I have been using a Trigger Point Therapy ball (a softball with a hard center) on my h...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks for the info WTH. Still trying to figure out which way to go here. I had about 2 solid weeks of feeling quite a bit of improvement, around 20-30% over where I was. I attributed it to my new routine which is lots of deep breathing in the morning and night, exercise of some kind every day, lots...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

WTH- tried the crystal wand but no success. For now it's my fingers, sometimes I feel relief, other times no changes. Thanks for the tips on running/meditation. I've tried that a couple times since I read your post and I like it. Do you mind helping me with a couple of referrals? I'm looking for a g...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks guys, apparently, they changed the rules and you must at all costs get a prescription from your doctor in order to get an appt with her. Not only that, but she has cut way down on new patients so there's like a waiting list for her...they were going to have me see another PT there (can't reme...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Ugh, flare city lately and I was going to see Chrissie, but apparently they need a prescription from "my doctor". I don't have a regular doctor and my urologist wanted to take this whole thing a different direction that I didn't like, so not sure where to get a referral from. Interesting because Tim...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks We.the.hulk. It's been an up and down road the past month. I'm back from my SE Asia trip as of yesterday, and for some reason, jetlag causes a big flare for me. I don't even think it's from sitting on the airplane, but something about throwing off my sleep schedule usually gets me. I think I ...

frequent urination

Ok, this hasn't been a HUGE problem for me with my CPPS, sometimes I have to pee a lot and other times I'm like I used to be and can go many hours without peeing. But, the last 5 days or so I have been going like every 20 minutes. I don't know what has brought this on. I also have a cold right now s...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Latte, this is great info, thanks! I definitely I'm guilty of going 100mph (stressing about stuff than never happens mostly), so even 2 days after a Tim Sawyer session I can feel everything coming back. I guess my thing will be to get a hold of the tapes (or mp3s) somehow, or, just sign up for the c...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

I read all 7 pages of this thread and it reads like my life story with CPPS. I went to Dr. Zeitlin in 2002, Dr. Parsons in 2003, Dr. Wise's seminar in 2004. My advise with my experience goes like this. All the tests they did showed nothing except the cystoscopy done by Dr. Zeitlin which showed seve...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Quick note: I'm in week 4 of my trip, I have a few more days in Bali then off to Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand for another month. I was doing pretty good CPPS-wise for a while then had a HUGE flare up a few days ago, pretty frustrating as I had started the stretching and even a little swimming a...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Ok I'm back. Like Yoink, I wish I could say I took a hiatus from the board because I was on the fast track to recovery. Not so! Here's an update: I'm currently traveling in SE Asia, right now in Bali, Indonesia. I planned this trip in January 2011, and at that point I thought I would EASILY be over ...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

We the hulk, Thanks so much for your awesome response. This helps tremendously. It's definitely turning me off to going through with this procedure. What I find hard is to tell doctors what you want and have them comply. Do you have any recommendations on Dr's in the SD area? I could maybe try Parso...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks, WS! Good idea about another uro. It's very strange. The comment I made about cystoscopy, I put a "Wise-Anderson Protocol?" in parenthesis, and it somehow got replaced with "Wise-Anderson protocol." I didn't type that, must be some kind of autocorrect feature! It did it again! I guess you ca...
