An update

My birthday is coming up a few days after next week and by that time I will have had What I think is Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome for 3 months and 19 days. I have noticed a modest improvement over the last three months in terms of external trigger points in the abdominal area. This is corroborated b...

Re: Gmccormack's case

Concerning Elavil: I've been taking Elavil 25mg every night for the last month or so. Its basically like aloe for sunburn, it doesn't make the burn go away by any means, but it soothes those fiery nerves. Its good stuff and I recommend it. It also incidentally helps with anxiety at night-time which ...

Re: Question about trigger points

I have trigger points that when pressed recreate suprapubic and urethral burning. Yea I think its normal to generally have a messed up pelvic floor with this. If B isn't causing pain in A, yet you still feel pain there thinking wtf, there's several possibilities. There's another tp referring pain th...

Re: Woes of a Prostatitis Newbie

Update: Well I have to say that at this point in time, despite my skepticism, starting smoking cigarettes regularly, being dumped by my girlfriend of 4 years, and totally abstaining from the stretches prescribed to me by my physical therapist; that is to say, completely in spite of myself and the un...

The Herbal Tea Thread

I think this forum would really benefit from the discussion of a topic that Is very near and dear to me and is also a topic that I think might be going unmentioned here--Herbal tea. I can't believe there isn't any thread devoted to it yet. Yes I have heard mention of many supplements, but nothing ab...

Re: Woes of a Prostatitis Newbie

Update as of now: I am doing "ok" as of now. My primary symptoms now are *suprapubic pain, *testicular ache and tenderness, roaming abdominal pain, dysuria, urethral burning, and I uncommonly get this charlie horse sensation at the very tip of my tailbone (only during the worst "attacks"). I have no...

Re: CPPS Warning

I've thought of that too. I ordered the wand on webslaves amazon store for CPPS and the only thing I can think of about that is that when you wash the wand, put a little bleach in the water and clean it well with a paper towel. Bleach kills all microorganisms across the board If I am correct. It'll ...

Re: New member here, just trying something new...

Hi All, Main Point I just wanted to weigh in on this. I noticed that you guys said you wake up and for 5-10 seconds you have no sensation of pain. I too experience this sensation every day and I'm sure most other people on this forum do/did as well. My own very useless rumination, for what its worth...

Re: Chronic Pain Gene Identified

I think until when all this biotechnology stuff really kicks off two or three decades from now is when this chronic nerve modulated pain stuff will begin to be a thing of the past. Some of that stuff they've been doing with gene therapy is miraculous. I am aware that it is still in its infancy but I...

Re: Woes of a Prostatitis Newbie

I finally ordered a headache in the pelvis. I'm going to start doing everything my PT tells me to do and start trying to get out of the apartment and live.

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

How long and how often have you been going to physical therapy? I've had around ten visits so far over the last 6 weeks and I would like to say that it has helped a little bit. The woman I'm seeing has been trained by Dr. Weiss (not david wise, weiss is from the pacific pelvic pain center.) Does the...

Re: Woes of a Prostatitis Newbie

Today I feel pretty good with the 25 mg Elavil that I took last night. So far I have been on it for three days. As a side note, for the last three days I had strep throat and I have been sleeping a lot so that may affect how I am feeling. The testicular and urethral burning has gone down noticeably,...

Re: Woes of a Prostatitis Newbie

Update: I've been prescribed Elavil 25mg daily to be taken at night. I would like to say that it has helped me some. The testicular/urethral/perineal burning calms down when I take it. I've only been taking it for three days though and I hope that it will continue to make things better. One thing I ...
