Re: How I'm beating this.

I'll also add here that I just started doing biofeedback. I have the machine and have been working with it for a few days...I'll report back on its efficacy. Perhaps others are considering doing that as well.

Re: How I'm beating this.

I'm going to have to again examine TRE. I have, at times, had a few surprising moments using some of Bercelli's techniques (as well as Sarno's). At the root I always believed my CPPS to be the result of a crazy muscle spasm that happened 1.5 years ago during masturbation. I physically felt a muscle ...

Re: How I'm beating this.

I saw my old urologist today, who'd helped me quite a bit in the past with my stricture issues. He said he highly recommends a cystoscopy based on the fact that I've had 3 strictures previously. When I suggested it was highly unlikely I have any stricture since I have zero urinary issues, he said, w...

Re: How I'm beating this.

I'm starting to really think my hernia mesh has something to do with my problems. The onset of my severe symptoms came from masturbating where I distinctly felt something kind of crunch and glitch. Now I think that by clenching the pelvic floor muscles too much, I might have pulled some mesh and/or ...

Re: How I'm beating this.

I didn't have any pain three years following the hernia surgery, so I don't think that's it. I just wonder if it was and event causing some of the hernia material to enter the bowel.

Either way I am not sure what to do next.

Frustrated and planning next steps

I've been on 25mg amiltryptiline for a month now, been doing phytotherapy for 4 months (bee pollen/quercetin/saw palmetto daily) and I've also resumed doing paradoxical relaxation, internal massage via the wand and stretching, putting at least 1.5-2 hours a day into it. I also went on a course of Ri...

Re: jg6075's Case/Rambling Story

That chart has been accurate for me as well. I often feel like I'm on the verge of the "next level" of feeling better, only to go into another flare up. It is certainly frustrating. You have a good attitude and seem to be approaching this really well. I have been all over the map with what I've tred...

IBS and nervous system

Perhaps you'll want to put this to the end of my main thread, but maybe it could stand alone as a separate topic. I've recently found some clues as to how to reduce flare symptoms which are making me think maybe my "golfball" symptoms have more to do with IBS then I previously thought. About a month...

Re: Any new novel approaches?!

@webslave: I have to disagree. Did you read this? http://liveinyourbodyaligned.blogspot.com/2013/02/male-pelvic-painpelvic-floor-disorder.html David McCoid also claims a full recovery, as well as a few others on other forums, by focusing heavily on alignment. Calling that approach quackery seems to ...

Intellicath - thoughts?

Has anyone else come across this? http://pelvicrelief.com/treatment/ Of course I'm skeptical, but I'm wondering if anyone has looked into this at all. On his homepage he has a video which is made to look like it's from an actual news show. Not very encouraging. Also, the idea of having this propriet...

Re: Any new novel approaches?!

It's a befuddling and extremely frustrating problem. It messes with your head. I'm with you. The fact that there isn't any real treatment is a travesty. I've been thinking recently that a celebrity spokesperson would really help this cause. I know John Cleese has suffered from it. Perhaps people sho...

Re: How I'm beating this.

Well, I've always done too much clenching with masturbation and to a lesser extent, sex. So doing just a little bit of masturbation while pushing out a bit I think is a way to gradually re-train that tendency. I don't really push out too hard, just hard enough out that I'm not clenching. Just for a ...
