Re: big breakthough after six months

Yes I asked about Elavil because it supposedly inhibits mast cells, according to some of what I have seen written on the forum.

Re: big breakthough after six months

OK -- so you don't advocate pain medication for this condition?

Re: Why urinary pain?

But have I f*cked up my prostate ducts and my antibody situation (talking non medically here) if in fact that scenario is true?

Re: Why urinary pain?

Here I go :) ... If in fact I did contract this pain through a tantric-like experience and if in fact that it is the result of the antibodies etc you described above -- I know you're not making a diagnosis, then am I therefore not a CPPS sufferer? Or am I something else?

Re: big breakthough after six months

I thought I read that on the forum somewhere. What are your thoughts on Elavil? Or any other painkillers for that matter...

Re: big breakthough after six months

And I've been taking QUrol for four weeks. I see I would need to discontinue that w/ Elavil?

Re: big breakthough after six months

Webslave, you know my story somewhat by now. I am going to my psych med doctor on Wednesday ... You know about my pain condition. I am currently on Lexapro ... What other pain fighting drugs do you recommend? I hear a lot of mention about Elavil Lyrica and nuerotonin, particularly Elavil as a mast c...

Re: Why urinary pain?

Yes brother. Thank you for the buck up. I need it. The key is I am trying. I am doing all that I can. And all that I read on this forum. It's a toughie though -- that is for sure.

Re: Why urinary pain?

No...you are helpful. Six months into this, I just don't feel a lot of progress on the pain front. Taking the QUrol, reading the headache book, going to internal PT, getting psychological help...but suffering from chronic pain -- all in the perineum.

Re: Why urinary pain?

Amen to that. I was happy go lucky before this hit, though. Just looking for answers and you are doing a great job of demystifying this for me.

Re: Why urinary pain?

Ok now I am a little scared that I've permanently damaged myself and it's more immune system related. Ugh. I know you're not a doctor.

Re: Why urinary pain?

Thanks for your reply. Well as you may recall the WBCs were high in semen culture (none in urine and no infection). What kind of steroid would work for this?

Re: Why urinary pain?

Is it reversible -- or am I in trouble here? And will PT do any good? What can be done about this? Would these ruptures show up on a trans rectal ultrasound?

Re: Why urinary pain?

Webslave, this is precisely how my symptoms began (or a slight variation thereof if you read my initial post: ""Tantric" sexual practices, which involve grasping the penis tighly to prevent ejaculation. Some men have reported that this started their problems." Is there anything specifically I should...

Re: Anxiety discussion

I do have a therapist. Seeing her this week. Trying to breathe normally when in pain is difficult -- with all else going on. I mean it hurts to hop in my car to drive to the therapist. Ugh. Even sitting here with my legs up on the couch I am in discomfort. Two PT sessions this week. I look forward t...
