The redness is common, see http://www.chronicprostatitis.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=953 Here's the bad news: it is quite possible, but not really likely that this will subside just thru the measures youve used. Your chances of recovery are excellent, but it will be a lot of work. Again, what you real...

Hearken unto the Scotsman. I have limited knowledge/experience with this, but it seems the trigger points are the glaring possibility, and you'd be crazy not to get evaluated for them. They can be quite tricky to locate in the pelvic floor, so the hard part is to find the right PT. You are definitel...

Can't find info about this despite trying.... since long ago (probably all my adult life) I've experienced occasional (~1x / week?) dull, semi-suffuse post-ejaculatory pain, essentially in the testicles, usually or maybe always at times when I'd been masturbating often. Starting maybe 15 minutes aft...

I've sucked down a few grams of GABA too, 100-250 mg at a time. It is an amino acid and a human neurotransmitter. It's very relaxing to hed and pelvic floor alike and I think it has good potential for CPPS. The site below offers a very good overview. On the other side of the story, "there is limited...

Geez, I'm really sorry your case is so extreme and refractory. Just a thought here (I'm assuming Stanford already diagnosed you with PFD)... Wise himself required "over two years" of relaxation practices, "up to 2 hours a day," and has said that PT without relaxation is "usually inadequate." Now, yo...

Yeah, I kind of suspected someone would say as much... I feel a bit skeptical of this PT. I'll have my guard up if I decide to be treated by him [and certainly won't use the anesthetic]; more likely I'll try to see someone else. Thanks a lot for the information, Scotsman.

topical anaethesia for intrarectal work

Reports on the experience of internal PT work suggest it can range from no huge deal to something quite excruciating. My PT wants me to go to this one male PT if I want internal work, and she says he applies topical anaesthetic, inside the rectum I guess, before the work. That's something I never he...

Anytime they do research on rats they use quantities higher than any human would/could ever partake. Often, yes; not always.

Marijuana use (heavy use, I think ) has recently been linked to an increased risk of developing schizophrenia, by a pretty good-looking study. But I've heard from a reliable-sounding person that living in a city had been linked to an even more increased risk of schizophrenia (I havent personally see...

By the way, three months is not very long to have been in physio. I dont have refs, but I've heard more than one person here remark that their progress with PT was very slow and that they had no real appreciation of its efficacy until looking back and realizing that their worst days were now about l...

I think you want to especially examine the last 3 paragraphs of that very extensive David Wise quote found at the above link. (But if you consider his opinion to be somewhat more authoritative than anyone else's - as I do - then youll certainly want to read the whole thing twice.)

lookouth, I'm currently gathering info on the efficacy of kegels, trying to decide whether to continue with them. How did you judge them to be useful in reducing your resting tone? Is that a subjective impression or one measured by EMG? In my case, the one time that I did kegels during an EMG sessio...

Kegel + biofeedback regime?

I have PFD. My PT knows about the Stanford/Wise-Anderson Protocol and does perform PFMFTPR, but wants me to first try a month-plus regime of kegels (start slow, gradually increase to 10 min, 3-5x per day) and weekly biofeedback sessions. I am not too enthusiastic about this idea, and I know David Wi...
