Important cause of CPPS: the veins

Hello again all, To add to johna's case, I have an update and news that I hope will save everybody a lot of suffering. Pelvic myoneuropathy is the cause of the pain of many people here, and for those people, trigger point work as outlined in AHIP is the best form of treatment. Some of us, however, h...

Pain is certainly there, but it's very much a function of the amount of urine in my bladder (although I'm sometimes in pain no matter what). The same is true for me. When my bladder is full I have discomfort/pain in my penis. Kevin, could you tell the location of your pain? What does help you to fi...

Thank you for your reply webslave. I have an interesting update: on Sunday night I went back on the decongestant (Allegra-D), and bang: the next day I felt good. Today I feel great. I'm convinced that this is not a placebo effect. Which leads to the issue of whether I have CPPS to begin with. True, ...

Clarification re: varicocele

The "Differential Diagnosis" section of http://www.chronicprostatitis.com says, "Patients with 'classic' prostatitis symptoms...may turn out to have...varicoceles (pain disappears after removing them)." Yet when I searched for discussions of varicoceles on the forum, they seem to be dismissed as a c...

I've been on Allegra for a week now, and here is an update on my symptoms. I took Allegra + decongestant for three days, at the end of which I posted on this board remarking on how great I felt. Then I took a day off, since I found out that the decongestant was likely not good for my prostate. After...

Thank you for the helpful answer webslave! I found surprisingly little about antihistamines and pelvic pain on the internet; would you know of any sources of information--on or off the net--that explain the mast cell connection a little further? Pain returned after I took a day off of Allegra--back ...

Success with Allegra!

I can't believe my genitourinary tract: after three days on Allegra, my CPPS of more than a year has essentially been eliminated! All last week, I was voiding 15-20 times a day. Just recently, someone had randomly emailed me to tell me about her experience with antihistamines. Then I discovered this...
