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 "sp?" in parenthesis, and it somehow got replaced with "Wise-Anderson protocol." I didn't type that, must be some kind of autocorrect feature!

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Not sure if anyone's reading this besides webslave, but I'll keep updating. I went to the urologist and asked about the rescue instillation. He wants to do a cystoscopy (sp?) and expand my bladder as some sort of test. He said this alone can sometimes help with the symptoms, but it will help him det...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Update time! Tomorrow I'm going to the uro and will be asking about webslaves suggestion of the rescue instillation. I'll be curious if this guy knows about it and can help at all, otherwise, it's just another wasted $40 copay and whatever else they decide to charge me for! Anyway, I have good news!...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

I'm considering going back to the urologist, one of the same ones that didn't help me. My reason is that the bladder issue is worse than anything else, and I'm thinking maybe they can do something there. Before, I was more focused on urethra pain, but now, the most annoying and aggravating problem i...

Re: Sex vs Masturbation

Glad to hear you've had many girlfriends since the start of this problem! Mine started a year and 2 months ago, and I have yet to have much more than a handful of dates with a girl. The reason is largely because of my lack of libido, but also party because of not wanting to be in an intimate relatio...

Re: Thoughts on my condition, please help

Tweezer, I just read your post, it's really inspiring! It sounds like you have a good handle on staying as stress-free as possible. I'm wondering what books seem to have helped you the most, or what kinds of daily things are you reading. Also, what is this amino acid supplement you are taking? Cheers.

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Thanks. Good point about the water. I used to drink lots of water, but the bladder pain has me subconsciously drinking less water, because my brain is associating it with pain. And I didn't have the shooting pains until a few days ago. It's sort of like when your muscles twitch right before sleep, b...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Really frustrated right now. Lots of things in my life are starting to turn around, business is going well, social life is improving, I'm getting in shape, stress levels are dropping...but my CPPS has taken a turn for the worse. Now, I'm getting these shooting-type pains that seem to go from my pros...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Hey Yoink, Thanks for checking in. I started getting a cold last week and was sick for several days, and flaring up. So, I can relate unfortunately. The good news is, I seemed to have been making slow, steady gains in the few weeks prior to getting sick. I've been doing daily stretches and self-mass...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Ok, thanks. I do a little green tea still, and a little chocolate here and there, but don't do coffee or sugar or any extra vitamin C. What's vitamin B6 in?

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Does anyone know if there is a specific trigger point for bladder pain issues? My biggest issue with CPPS is the discomfort that occurs when my bladder fills. If I wait too long, the feeling consumes me and it's all I can think about. With the relaxing, stretching, and internal massage I've been doi...

Re: New here- Here's my Story

Quick update. 1. Got the crystal wand and tried it the other day. Not so big on it. I felt like my finger could do more. Might give it another try. 2. Overall, since I started the daily routine of stretching, Theracane, TPT ball, massage, and more exercise, I'm feeling a little better. But, I have a...

Re: Sex vs Masturbation

This is an interesting discussion. For me, I was fairly single throughout most of 2011. However, the few times I had sex, I would be sore for a week, and not even want to think about sex in that time! Masturbation on the other hand doesn't have the same effect. It's definitely easier to "rub one out...
