Prostatitis - Your symptoms
i have been dealing with this for a while and want to see what others experience with Prostatitis. Drs say I have chronic prostatitis. I think everyone experiences prostatitis differently and so want to start this thread to see and talk about solutions.
Mine feels like I have to pee frequently. Night time too. Mostly bladder pressure lower abdominal. I feel like I am tightening muscles in my stomach sometimes. Some lower back pain (getting some sciatic pain lately). My prostate doesn't hurt I guess, not when the drs. touch it either, but they say the nerves can transfer that discomfort elsewhere. So I am feeling it below my belly button and if I press there it is uncomfortable. I have these symptoms all the time although they might subside a little.
What are others symptoms and do you get the same story from doctors that it is different for people?
Doctors tell me I need to exercise (walk often), stay away from the 4 c's (caffeine, citrus, carbonation, chocolate), take 2400 mg of ibuprofen a day, take a multi vitamin with zinc and also take saw palmetto, and drink lots of water to keep your urinary system working.
I guess I have to live with this even though hopefully some of this will subside over time. I look forward to some responses.
