Hi GoatWhisperer (Cool name!), Go for the cystoscopy if you're the kind of guy that worries a lot about your symptoms - it can put your mind at rest and rule out some more serious conditions. Otherwise might be worth following Scotsmans approach. Personally I have had two cystoscopies, one conscious...

Hi Scotsman, Reason I ask is that my CPPS started with a urine reflux when I urinated right after intercourse (within 15 mins for me). Just wanted to ask how you knew you were getting reflux? Also I'm assuming this means urine getting squeezed out into the prostate area or something? I've wondered f...

Hello Cr, Great to hear you are getting improvement in your symptoms by getting your mind sorted out, I think this is what I need to do as well. I would be interested to hear how long you've been taking the prozac to get this benefit? I've got a holiday coming up in a couple of weeks which I am drea...

Hi Webslave, Thanks for the words. I've ordered a book about food allergies and exclusion diets that I saw you recommend on another post so I'll be giving this a go. One question, I'm a bit confused when you say the immune system is laboring and revved up - surely it should be one or the other? In m...

Hi Glenn, From reading your story the thing that immediately strikes me is that the root of your problem is more likely to be the notion that you have damaged your insides rather than any actual physical harm. I say this from the point of view of someone who is in the same situation and understands ...

Hi Daz, Probably is a cystoscopy and massage - I had this done once and I was anaesthetised throughout. No big deal, you're lying in bed one minute, next thing you know its done; nothing to be scared about. I don't remeber any significant after effects either. I actually had another cystoscopy done ...

Hi Guys, How's it going? Just thought I'd give you an update on my progress, which could take a while, but is hopefully more upbeat than last time. So not long after I wrote my first post I was at a very low ebb and went to the docs begging for help and to discuss your suggestions for seeing a psych...

Hey, thanks for the replies! Focused relaxation - "paradoxical relaxation" in the Wise/Anderson vocabulary - is much more specific than just listening to relaxing music and trying to really relax. You need to practice specific techniques to evoke the relaxation response in the brain, which is basica...

Hello and my story

Hello All, Its funny the places prostatitis takes you, I never thought I would find myself baring my soul to a group of strangers on a web forum. However believe me I'm glad to be here, and from what I've read over the past week or so I think this group and CP.com could well save my life. The storie...
