Since i have had a prostate infection about 8-9 tears ago, I went to
My doctor and he prescribed an antibiotic, DOXYCYCINE.
After some weeks had passed and the pain getting worse my doctor
Prescribed another drug he said would go right to the source and
kill it ,TRIMETHOPRIM. Needless to say the pain was getting more intense
each day.....this time he prescribed CEPHALEX.
In a few weeks i was back in to see my doctor, in very bad pain.
He was going to book me with a local urologist who I had seen the previous time
that I had an infection.
The urologist was on holidays and I was booked for an appointment in about
The pain intensified so badly i ended up in the local hospital emergency
for about a week. In that time a digital exam found nothing, and a
urine sample tested okay.
They performed an x-ray, cat scan, and the urologist did a scope found
no problem, but prescribes a trial dose of XATROL, an alpha blocker
designed to relax the muscles of the bladder and prostate, which
I found to be of no help.
I was released from the hospital and prescribed CIPRO and OXYCOCET.
During the next few weeks the pain slowly returned and got so bad a
Doctor friend (physiatrist) took me to a different hospital emergency.
Examined by 3 different doctors while i was there, one said my prostate
felt boggy, the other 2 said it felt normal. They did all the tests that were
performed in the first hospital with no real problem. The urologist
performed a scope and said there were no real problems, other than i
was a little tight and he said he opened me up a little.
I was in this hospital for about a week. I was given Cipro daily,
XATROL before bed each night.
Every morning and evening I was given an INDOTEC suppository, an
At the end of the week the chief surgeon said they could find no infection
or swelling of the prostate and prescribed CIPRO and BIAXIN on my release.
It has been about 3 months since this pain started. The pain has not been
So intense since, but is still with me day and night. At night it takes quite a
while to get to sleep, but when i do that is the only relief i get.
I have tried various pain killers OXYCOCET, RATIO-LENOLTEC, DILAUDID, and AMITRIPTYLINE.
None of which has helped, my doctor said i have run out of options for pain killers.
SITZ baths help to sooth the pain but returns not long after i am done.
I am also still taking the XATRAL alpha blocker hoping that it will help, and
My doctor is trying to book me to have an MRI, I hope that will find something.
I can not figure out why there is no progress from one day to the next, my
doctor cannot understand why i have this pain. He said all tests show my
prostate to be normal, and there should be no pain.
All i know that my quality of life at this time is very low. I have pain daily.
I cannot sit, it causes the pain to intensify.
I cannot walk my dog or leave my house as walking also causes the pain to intensify.
I tried going to the mall to Cristmas shop with my Daughter.The pain would get so bad
from walking i would have to stand in one spot till it let up a little.
The pain distracts me from enjoying everything in life. I really miss spending
time with my grandchildren, and the little things in life.
I wish I had my life back.

Honestly, I've had all kinds of medical events in my life, but nothing compares to he discomfort I am experiencing with this pain. I honestly have not sat down comfortably in 8 weeks.
Keep posted, please,

By not siting in your prostate I mean, make sure your height is distributed by your no pelvic parts. Try siting as litle of your butt as possible, just make sure that the place here your prostate is dont touch anything.
I am sorry for my english, I hope it helps.
Now let me tell you how I alleviated symptoms that lasted fifteen years and countless doctors and tests couldn't find, let alone cure. So the first thing to do: Begin stretching out the hip, perriformis and Illiopsoas muscles like a chinese acrobat. At first the symptoms may begin to shift. If this happens you'll definately know you're on the right track. Find out how to stretch properly, not overstretching, but doing it regularly, slow and steady for three or four days to see the results. This is how long it took me to finally get a sleepful night.
Now, if you don't know what these muscles are get a book. Four to five stretches will only be necessary if they're the right ones. There's not a lot for this area so you can't get too confused.
There are also tests for this but the doctors are limited. In Europe they are much more aware of this. Check out Pudendal Info. com willl give you more info.
By the way, this is actually called cyclers-disease. Athletes get it a lot, people who worked the lower part of their body, did high-school/college sports, etc... But anyone can get it. It's becomming known as the answer to the mystery of non-bacterial prostatitis.
I have had the exact same problem for years , but to me it seemed to be a sexual problem.
If i get a real orgasm the pain clears for day's.
After my wife and me made an agreement of having sex atleast once a week, it stopped all together.
but if we let it go too long between it returns.
For me it has to bee a real orgasm with my wife to get any effect.
I don't know why, it's a mistery to me???
