Prostatitis or Not???

First, I am a 57 year old male...I have a history of bouts of prostatitis particularly in my 30's...two or three times. About 9 months ago, I had a PSA of 4.7...I said I had some prostatitis symptoms, but the first Urologist said not...I did not totally accept his view and went to another Urologist that tryed Leviquin...my PSA dropped to 3.5 in two weeks. He suggested that we go ahead an do a biopsy to rule out cancer...he did a biopsy in November, 2006 using the probe to get 18 different samples...all negative.

Now, eight months later, I have what feels like a minor case of prostatitis...symptoms of ache basically in scrotom more late in the day as opposed to earlier...also, I get a twinge occassionally in the tip or shaft of the penis??? My PSA is up to 5.7, but I am somewhat symptomatic as explained...I am on Leviquin for 30 days.

Anyone had similiar experience?? I am not certain if Leviquin will help or not..does it sound like prostatitis symptoms?? I am not getting as much ache on prostate site itself directly. Also, how much could PSA be elevated from mild case of prostatitis?

Appreciate others comments with similiar situation....thanks.
