Re: IBS and Quercetin

That's great webslave congratulations! How many years had you suffered with IBS? It's interesting to see pumpkin. When my dog has had diarrhea its recommended to provide a diet of bland chicken AND mix with pumpkin paste. There's something to it that helps with binding as well.

Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

Kevkos, glad to hear you are doing better. I am trying my best to get into meditating and back to the gym w/some elliptical. I listened to this CD MajorSky1 recommended 'Meditation for Pelvic Health' by Nari Clemons and it was pretty good. Relaxed me last night and I wound up knocked out. I have to ...

Re: CPPS/Tinnitus

Sorry to hear HateCPPS....I have read that NSAIDs and aspirin can raise the sound level on 'T', but also many meds can be ototoxic and cause it. Not sure why ENTs dismiss the idea/reason, when there are plenty of meds that can cause T. I'm only a month in with it so it may or may not go away. Just h...

Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

Kevkos, Sounds like what I am to have with any problem or issue in my life. A lot of anticipatory anxiety. I'm also often catastrophizing if things are not as you expect or desire. That Zinn book about full catastrophe living is good for this. My stuff is all stress and emotionally related I think. ...

Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

I don't torrent so any sites with Watts would be appreciated. Kevkos what is that Buddhist book? For meditation I recommend this Kabat zinn audio book: Mindfulness Meditation for Pain Relief: Guided Practices for Reclaiming Your Body and Your Life And this one to help cope or manage. I'm going to li...

Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

Hey kevkos, Looks like that socal site doesn't have kratom any longer and the happy hippo site I think is going to stop cuz of the FDA comments. A lot of people are fighting the desire for the FDA to ban kratom without proper study. There are lots of therapeutic purposes for it from what I've read. ...

Re: Hello and looking for additional help

Yes. I have an appointment tomorrow. I understand you can only help so much on the forum and no one here's a doctor. it falls on me to do the heavy lifting. More than anything from my post I was looking to try and break a flare. Wasn't sure how much Valium or Tramadol you need to take. I've read num...

Re: Hello and looking for additional help

I just find it weird that this summer I didn't have any spasms when ejaculating. Then all of a sudden it started a few months ago. It took me a while to realize why I got them. I'm afraid that with my anxiety, I'll start to get recurring spasms without ejaculating (yes that's catastrophizing). Anywa...

Re: Hello and looking for additional help

Update: I've been chiming in now and then on various posts looking for answers about spasms but here is where I stand now. Would appreciate any advice to get me through some dark times. 1. Been seeing my PT for about 5 months and I still have a bunch of trigger points in the puborectlis. She worked ...

Re: 6 years with CPPS

I'd like to know how EMDR and TMS differ. I wouldn't mind going that route. I do want to concentrate on CBT to help cope and handle stress going forward. Not worry and be less anxious. Stop my ruminating thinking that causes anxiety.

Re: Progress but improvement stalled

Thanks kevkos. Stretching and hot bath, then going to do some internal work. But I did see some info on it as I was searching. Looks like they are trying to crack down on it. I am sure the pharma companies are behind this since they have no issue with people getting hooked on benzos. https://www.fda...

Re: Progress but improvement stalled

Hey Major, Did you have any specific techniques you used for breaking flares? I think I read somewhere that some people take benzos on the weekend. My uro suggested taking more than the usual dose of muscle relaxers. I noticed that I've run the gamut of pain, from golf ball to pain in tip of penis a...

Re: Kevkos - Here's my Story

Hey Kevkos, I did PT work with my own therapist and I try doing in my own as well. It's definitely a mind thing as well because I recently had an onset of tinnitus and my mind has been preoccupied with that. So the pain in my pelvic region is not as bad as normal. That could all come back though so ...
