Re: Duloxetine/Cymbalta

Quick update on this - I have been on Cymbalta for roughly 2 months. I've ramped up to 60mg. Its definitely had an impact on my mood in a positive way, but hasn't done much for the pain. Side effects have been minimal (decreased appetite, and my libido was decreased at the beginning, but has come ra...

Re: Has anyone tried ketamine infusion

I've read quite a few good things regarding this treatment's impact on depression and chronic pain. Obviously don't experiment with this drug recreationally, but probably worth speaking to someone at a clinic who provides this treatment to see what they think about the application Re: CPPS

Clinical trial update?

Has anyone signed up or had their initial assessment for the clinical research study that was recently posted? If so, which research clinic did attend? Curious to hear about it.

Duloxetine/Cymbalta

Hi All, I've been working with a painclinic, a psychologist who specializes in chronic pain, and a pelvic PT. Collectively, they recommended adding Duloxetine / Cymbalta (30 mg) to the mix. I've heard mixed things about this drug but I figure its worth a try. I've tried Elavil in the past with limit...

Re: Suffering

I have a foam pillow thing with a cutout in the middle. Seems to help slightly. Think I found it on the IC network site but can't remember 100%

Meatus / Tip of Penis

Hi All,

I know that tip of penis pain is a common symptom, but I am less clear about what causes the redness/inflamed look of the urethral opening and tip of penis. Can someone please walk me through how CPPS can cause the physical change I am seeing?
