Good to know that you have overcome the prostatitis c90danielw. Regarding the pain in your foot that goes away with a bit of running, do get your uric acid tested. It's a simple blood test. This pain is symptomatic of a high level of uric acid, and it can sometimes be linked with prostatitis pains as well.

Thanks for the info! The foot issue only hurt when I stepped on my foot (back of foot pain - more consistent with an achilles bursitis pain), and occurred after I was wearing some very floppy boots. I think uric acid issues (gout?) is more a red swelling pain?

But since I was able to go from extreme pain to no pain in a matter of seconds, while doing things that formerly triggered the pain (like heel raises in floppy boots) and simultaenously using mind-body techniques, I'm pretty sure this was mind-body deal. No bursitis here, I'm happy to report! :)

How did you find a trustworthy clinic whose doctors would not accidentally inject you with something harmful? How much money did you pay for the clinic?

PS: There was also Enterococcus Faecalis found, but "too little to justify antibiotics".

As I am not gay and those bacteria are found in the anal region, I think I should consider this a pathogen.

Post Re: Success Stories - Post 'em If You Got 'em!
Hello All -

What I am going to write today may help a lot of us who have been suffering from this serious problem. While I know everyone's case is different, hopefully my experience could be useful to some or many of us....
I have suffered for 1.5 years now. My intentions are not to judge anyone but to ONLY help us all in our journey of recovery! I am NOT fully cured (almost there!) but have in most of the aspects over-powered this nonsense and am on the road to full recovery with my determination and willpower....

Very briefly, few important points:

1. I am 35+ man who is still single. Last GF almost 6 years ago...and probably that's where I got entangled into this nonsense when I started masturbating more frequent. But my frequency was nowhere near as compared to people who have either mentioned the same in this forum or maybe few other forums I have read. But probably I was watching porn for longer hours and not masturbating properly...maybe i used to press the penis during ejaculating and hence not fully ejaculating out the semen...

2. I Do NOT Drink, Smoke, drugs, no coffee or tea also...I know seems like I am good man...but then we all are!

3. My symptoms HAVE ONLY been frequent urination...NO pelvic pain, or painful urination. Though for the first 3-5 months felt a very bad burning/hotness sensation constant throughout the day and debilitating, and after any nightfall/ masturbation episode even worse feeling of hotness and frequent voiding (16 times/ day initially).

4. I have the greatest luck of my father being a homeopathy doctor, which definitely have helped in recovering faster I believe. He has provided his best work!....

5. My urologist has no idea what could have started this...but he says if at times semen keeps going back in the body and didn't getting ejaculated properly that may cause some inflammation in prostate. But what western doctors do NOT realize that in some way over-masturbation or masturbating during this condition is NOT healthy. And my urologist said that my continuation should in no way aggravate the situation (WHICH IS NOT TRUE as I found). The only med he gave me all this time is Flomax. And his PA even said to masturbate regularly. I tried for a month and my condition was worse after every masturbation.

So what has cured me to a greater extent? My recovery path was a trying many things as time progressed, but I will come straight to the main solution -

1. STOP Masturbating....and I mean At ALL! I am clean for the last 1 year (out of the 1.5 years) and that has helped big time.

2. My father's homeopathy meds...if couldn't cure, really helped in recovery as I was only taking those meds initial 4 months. Flomax later helped to some extent in controlling the urge to urinate. Though after taking everyday for 1 year, I have dropped the dosage to only once every 2 days. This helped bringing down urination frequency to 6-7 times/ day.

3. Take natural non-inflammatory products and herbal tea. I started drinking 1 glass (250 ml) of water with 25% or little less of teaspoon turmeric (2ice a day). Eat garlic (natural anti-biotic) and ginger in food. Herbal teas - chamomile with honey.

4. MOST Importantly - What took the recovery from lets say 90% to 98% (which is VERY crucial) is the following-
ISHA Foundation (a spiritual practice non-profit organization) - Famous guru named Sadhguru (and he is no quack, I have lived my life as an atheist, and i can tell you this man is a stronger human...watch his videos on youtube). They have a 4-day Inner Engineering program (ISHA Kriya) which entails few yoga postures and amazing breathing techniques (Kriyas). This I have done 2 times a day (it takes 35 mins for one session of ISHA Kriya), and in just last 3-4 months have changed my life! They also have meditating techniques which will SURELY help.

Also as already a decent Yoga practitioner myself, I have found few good Yoga postures specific to cure this condition (another great guru BKS Iyengar Yoga) which I have now added with this ISHA Kriya. And I am on a roll! Now I can tell you most of the times I feel healthy in that region. I can take 3-4 quick succession nightfalls without impacting my urination frequency. Though when I tested with more # of quick nightfalls (by watching porn in the day), I found that creates some irritation...but man the recovery from that state is very fast!!!

I would also mention here that at times our stress and depressing mindset during this period will also add to this suffering, so pls allow yourself to heal. I know most of you can not have access to step 2 above, but still step 1, 3 and 4 MUST help you improve...Also, try to live a sober life for sometime...And find a good partner (who are single like me) and keep the sexual relationship off for sometime (if u already have a partner)....

This is my Journey...I hope all of you will find your peace. Let's fight and win this battle.

Sorry to say this but I feel I must be honest here. No one "guru" or yoga is going to cure this. That's all a bunch of BS. I know what I'm talking about because I was going to an ayurvedic doctor like one year and he only blamed me for "thinking too much" when the one to blame was him, who couldn't even grasp that my problem was a chronic prostatitis and couldn't cure me. I write this because I think that the part of the above comment which says that the "guru" was the most helpful thing can be misleading, specially to desperate people.

I would advise people to stay away from "gurus" and ayurvedic doctors to cure this because they will only take your money. Ayurveda and yoga may help in other mild health problems but not in chronic prostatitis.

I've had Chronic Prostitis off and on for years, countless urologists and off and on Cipro and others. Finally I listened to my last urologists. For me, its all about diet and exercise and only having sex 2-3 times a week)(ate least once). My triggers are masturbating too often and and doing Ab exercises. Also too much caffeine and alcohol. I began writing everything I did and ate and drank. All of a sudden my symptoms began to disappear. Not overnight but eventually they were gone. If they came back, i was eating fried stuff and drinking too much, maybe masturbation. I know everyone is different, but everyone here has had the agony of this ailment. I thought for sure I had an STD, or that it would never go away. I believe Non Bacterial prostitis can be cured if you listen to your body and make the changes it tells you make. I'm only writing on here because I have seen such a difference and I know how debilitating this can be!
If you don't make changes and write it all down, you may live with it forever. I was living with Prostitis for years and refused to make changes. Now I feel great and I know you can get rid of it too.
I take all the regular vitamins too
Saw Palmetto
Zinc
Cranberry
I also saw a big difference when I took Cialis, not sure if it opened up everything or not, but I def saw a difference. I only take the Cialis for a few days if i feel like it might be coming back.
The answer is to stay clear of all the triggers and see what happens. It wont happen right away, but I am now drinking beers, drinking coffee and enjoying my old life. I'm just very careful what I eat and what exercises I do
I also do Hot yoga twice a week
I hope some of this helps, I've never written in a forum before
DIET
EXERCISE
and whatever else are your triggers!
I lived with this for years and now feel great

There are natural products like Chinese herbs and homeopathy that will do the same thing as Cialis also - just so you know.

Post Re: Success Stories - Post 'em If You Got 'em!
hi just wanted to share my experience. I was diagnosed with bacterial prostatitis, which I believe to be a correct diagnosis, in February 2017. I was on Cipro, then Bactrim and doxycycline and back on Bactrim.
The pain and discomfort were awful. It felt like a someone shoved a cantaloupe up my ass. Difficulty urinating, depression I ended up taking a month off of work. I was on antibiotics for over 3 months and was very worried and depressed. I thought it would never end. I would like to share what I did to get better.
1) I started exercising. Mostly walking. I couldn't sit anyway.

2) I went to a therapist to help with the depression. She helped put this affliction in perspective. It could always be worse. It would eventually end and even the discomfort I was in, wasn't life ending it just sucked. Sometimes life is difficult, but it will pass.

3) Prostate PQ is a supplement with rye grass pollen extract. It is the only dietary supplement with clinical trials that support it's claims. It is effective but not cheap. It can be purchased online without a prescription, but my doctor did prescribe it.

4) After a while I noticed my symptoms would escalate and and abate quickly. Good days / bad days. This is when I really started to tune in to what my body was telling me. I noticed when laying on my stomach If I really relaxed in a dark quiet room I could feel the muscles in my pelvic area relax and release their tension. That enlarged sensation in my rectum would lessen. I could urinate better. I think when you have prostatitis you start to clench the muscles in your pelvic region because of the pain and discomfort. Clenching also helped me not wet my pants! Whenever I would bend or sit it felt like a lightning bolt through my penis and as a result I would clench up. I think after months of clenching you forget how to relax those muscles and the symptoms of prostatitis and pelvic floor dysfunction are very similar and easy to confuse.

5) Accupuncture, Accupuncture ACCUPUNCTURE!! OMG it really helped relieve the pain and it helped relax the muscles. I started 3x a week and cut down to 1x a week. I haven't been back in a few months but I will be back to it soon because some days it is hard to relax those pelvic muscles.

6) Relax, avoid stress. Treat yourself well. Be good to yourself, be kind to yourself. Stay social, see your friends, laugh. Seriously... laugh! It helps relax those muscles and reduces stress. Also hot soup. It is comforting and helps you relax
.
7) stay away from booze and drugs

8) Sex. When my prostatitis was raging sex hurt. When it switched over to the pelvic dysfunction sex would alleviate some of the symptoms. Also get an erection and let it go soft. Do it a couple of times. That really helped my symptoms. I dont know why, but it helped those pelvic muscles relax.

9) Advil, hot baths
I hope this stuff is relatable and it helps even one person. If you are reading this and you are suffering, you are not alone. It won't last forever. You can still enjoy life. Just try not to worry about it. I know thats not easy when you are suffering but my urologist told me the same thing and he was 100% right about it. Be well!

Post Re: Success Stories - Post 'em If You Got 'em!
This post is WAY overdue. I spent some time reading here after having a persistent low-grade inflammation. I found it a great resource, but didn't see what I needed. (I may have failed to look in the right places).

All the credit for my recovery goes to ex-girlfriend, Nicole. She's one of those meditating, mind-bending, intuitive, universally connected, "woo" types. Anyway, she gave it a "huh, let me see." And then said. "Corn. I think it's corn. Stop eating corn."

So for the speed readers:

STOP EATING CORN!

Details... It's worth noting that I'd pretty much started to see chips and salsa a healthy late afternoon snack. I'd put down a couple bags a week, with tasty salsa of course. But I also ate plenty of other things with corn, like cereals. I stopped and it went away. 100%.

I'll get mild inflammation from time to time, but that's usually around drinking regular beer.

Worth noting too (probably) is that before the omission of corn, I was already 98% gluten free (yes that awesome bread at the fine dining... I'm hitting it).

I've felt long overdue to share my experience. Guys... DROP THE CORN, SEE WHAT HAPPENS!

I hope it works for you.

My suspicion is that all the stuff they do with GMO corn (which kills the insects that eat it... pesticides built right in!!) is having an impact on us. I actually think that same corn might be why gluten is becoming more of an issue.

I'm no doc, just trying to find my way.

Good luck!
