Re: Inflamed seminal vesicle, instead of prostate

Dr Shoskes said he didn't treat chronic seminal vesicle inflammation with surgery? Maybe there is a difference for vesiculitis and non-bacterial inflammation.

Inflamed seminal vesicle, instead of prostate

After about 15 years of being treated for prostatitis on and off, I had an ultrasound done to find that I had an inflamed seminal vesicle. Some of you guys that have elusive cases might think about this. I am trying to figured out the cause, there are no bacteria in the vesicle only an inflammatory ...

Re: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) natural remedy

I am speaking from personal experience. ZR the best thing I have used for this is Betaine HCL. Some people don't produce enough stomach acid to digest fats and proteins. I stumbled upon this because I have gallbladder attacks. I drink a couple tablespoons of vinegar and the pain goes away. I have re...

Since a lot of people on this forum have some form of IBS I thought I would post what I have done in the past for IBS. I had tried prescription meds only to have some annoying side-effects or not work at all. Herbs are natural each with different properties they work with the body to correct itself....

Re: Pudendal Nerve? Could that be my problem?

I have the same symptoms as you. Mainly tingling, itchy feeling in tip of urethra, feel that I need to urinate. I too had a tailbone injury. I have come to the conclusion that I have Pudendal nerve neuralgia (entrapment seems to define a more serious issue) or simply Pudendal nerve inflammation. Thi...

Re: Burning before and after Urination

I have burning sometimes after urination. I try to let the urine flow naturally and try not to push out any urine left in the urethra at the end of the stream, I prefer shaking a few times instead. You mentioned phenazopyrid I used a medication similar after a cytoscope and it turned my urine blue. ...

Re: marijuana and Elavil? pain sucks!

I haven't used mary jane much but, marijuana has caused 2 major flare ups for me. Everyone is different. I wonder if there is something in mary jane that causes flare ups. One thing for sure, mary jane would make me aroused and increase sensitivity in my pelvic region, and I might have indulged too ...

Re: Adrenocortical Hormone Abnormalities in Men with CP/CPPS

In relation to the adrenal and kidney function. Chinese medicine is based upon yin and yang, mostly described as a philosophy. Some traditional medicine teaches us that illness in the body needs to be treated as a whole. What I have come to realize while having CPPS is that a problem that I may not ...

Re: Do you guys do this when you have sex?

On another note of this thread. Over-worked, tensed, tight muscles surrounding our ejaculatory organs/penis,bladder..etc. Can this illicit an immune response? I feel that there is no definitive answer for this. Have you ever had abnormal high white blood cells in your ejaculation or prostate secreti...

Re: Do you guys do this when you have sex?

Carld lol. You are right. These are some good responses. I think we all have been trying too hard. I had read another post and commented on. Where a guy was saying that he used to be able to hold his orgasms and have control over them, by resisting them. I am one that used to do this, along with the...

Re: Sensation Loss and perineal congestion

neue01 Just read your posts in this thread. You sound exactly like me. When I was a kid I would hold back number 2. Had complete control over my orgasms and could go forever. It took me a long time to figure out that this is what started the problem. I had bowel problems when this started and they h...
