I sit in one of these all day at work and certainly don't find it the least bit pelvis friendly. I can start off the day feeling pretty well but by the end of the afternoon I'm fidgeting around, hopping from cheek to cheek. I was actually considering getting a donut cushion to try and make it better...

I've had some triggerpoints that were so painful it felt like the physio was a using salt covered finger to treat an open wound
Good description, that's exactly what it feels like, it helps to know that you've experienced this and got rid of it.
Thanks :-)

Nasty Trigger Point

Hi, Question for the guys following PT of the pelvic floor.... I've probably had around 10 or so physio sessions which has improved my symptoms a fair bit. In the first few sessions I was happy to let the physio just go for it and really stretch the tightened muscles, the pain was almost good becaus...

Yeah nice page Eric, good to put a face to the name! Definitely some food for thought as well since I remain very private about this ailment around friends, colleagues and most of my family. I'm sure it would do me the world of good to stop holding it all in. Anyway I have been on the enzymes for a ...

Hi WR, Just to let you know that burning and sore thighs and adductors is one of my main symptoms. I don't think it's one of the most common CPPS symptoms but it certainly is one of them. The physio I see wasn't in the least surprised by it and has treated many men in the past with it - so don't wor...

Hi Mike, I have had a few of these dipstick tests in the docs surgery show up protein in the urine before but nothing ever came of it. I had blood tests and an ultrasound of my kidneys which didn't really reveal anything - so effectively no action was ever taken save to throw some more ABX my way. S...

I don't regret it, nothing has changed except some suspicion has been raised as to motives, which I personally don't believe. The supplement is the same as it was yesterday, as are any potential effects on inflammation and the healing response of the body. Who knows, it may or may not work, we'll se...

Hi Chuck, Just wanted to say that I have exactly what you are describing as well. Some good advice from the other guys although I think maybe they don't quite get where you're coming from? I'm 26 now, started getting this when I was about 17 also, and before I got any pain I noticed that my penis an...

I had all of these extra symtoms you mention develop a few months ago, i.e. the sore eyes, sore neck and armpits, feelings of dizzyness. These have now almost gone. The things I did in parallel were: Take ~4g of vitamic C per day. Started taking an SSRI, citalopram. Started PT of my pelvic floor. Di...

Thanks for the post mate its really cheered me up. I've been getting PT for a few months and was seeing real improvement, however the last session seems to have sent me back a bit. Don't know why but it was sorer than usual at the time and I've been suffering ever since - need to discuss with my phy...

Hi londoner, I'm due an update on my progress in general so here we go... I've been going for physio in Edinburgh now since August, about 4 months, and probably about 6 or 7 sessions. At first I went about once every two weeks but now I go about once every 6 weeks or so. Hopefully my post didn't com...

Hi alprost, Just interested to know what drove you to go to Stanford when I know you were seeing a PT here in the UK. Did you find you had reached a plateau with that treatment or did you need more help in the relaxation/psychology area? How did the PT you got there compare with what you received he...

Physio shortage

He's got a few years left to go yet I would say, early forties maybe. But you're right this is something I've thought about, I'm currently making good progress going to Bill but what would happen if he was no longer available? I think he's open to training people, he mentioned to me that he was in d...
