Night Terrors.

Does anyone here have night terrors? I started experiencing them when I first developed CPPS, and they've died down luckily, bolting out of the house naked in your sleep isn't a good thing, now I have mild REM behavior disorder on random nights, my grandmother told me my grandfather would "fight" in...

Re: Cortisol levels

How hard would it be to get your own cortisol levels checked? Do they have independent labs you can send a saliva sample in to? Just how accurate are the readings, can medications affect it?

Re: After 16 years of Pelvic pain ....

Thanks for the information webslave, hopefully I can get some medical care once my other family member's severe health issues have stabilized, everything is chaos over here and I'm having severe difficulty juggling all of it.

Re: After 16 years of Pelvic pain ....

Webslave, I've been a bit sleep deprived when I made these posts, but I realized something, if damage is being done like you say while I'm sitting or laying down, and it shows up when I stand up, why does it almost always immediately go away when sitting or lying back down, without fail, doesn't mat...

Re: After 16 years of Pelvic pain ....

Tetro, bad sitting posture puts pressure on nerve roots, but symptoms will only appear when you stand and start moving. What really? Hmm, I never heard of that order of cause and effect with nerves, usually when whatever is pushing on the nerves is no longer pushing on it the nerves, the symptoms g...

Re: After 16 years of Pelvic pain ....

No see, when I'm "sitting like that" I DON'T have any symptoms, it's when I'm standing up walking that they show up, sometimes almost immediately on standing, So the opposite of what you would think should be happening is occuring. Aside from laying down causing most of the fullness and odd sensatio...

Re: Intense lower abdomen spasm

Hi Prostate guy, yes, I used to have urgency a lot, on two rare occasions I had a sensation that lasted over a hour of need to pee extremely badly, like you're on the last legs of holding it in, but never having any urine to piss out, it was maddening at the times that I had them, cause it really wo...

Re: After 16 years of Pelvic pain ....

Hi Webslave, thanks for responding, but the issue is, I do very intense squatting daily for years for my pelvic pain and the tightness in my lower back so and NEVER had these sensations before, it doesn't make sense, I would say maybe the prolonged squatting might have slipped some more discs out of...

After 16 years of Pelvic pain ....

....and a horrible slow improvement, something new comes along, fasciculations, hemorrhoids? Hi, I'm not going to go into my life story of CPPS at the moment, I'm too exhausted and I just can't type that much at the moment, I will say I had all the standard CPPS issues, and was even diagnosed in 200...

Re: Intense lower abdomen spasm

Yes, the spasms from the pelvic floor can "creep" into other muscles making them tight and spasm as well, it's almost like a virus of pain and that can spread, when I had severe episodes I would get pain all the way down into my calves.
