Is this still Prostatitis?
Hi all,

I was diagnosed with prostatitis 2 years ago. I was treated with antibiotics which appeared to help. I've occasionally felt prostatitis symptoms since, but they have come and gone.

I have very pronounced symptoms right now, and would appreciate if any of you think it sounds like it's still prostatitis:

- burning pain in my right abdomen and urethra when urinating
- pain in the rectum
- pain in the testicles

Is there any other condition that could account for this?

Re: Is this still Prostatitis?
It sounds like it to me. I've had it on or off for about the last 10 years. It flares up especially after bike riding. The only way to confirm is to see a urologist. In the meantime, you can consider taking Alleve, sitting in a hot tub, regularly emptying the prostate (how was that for being politically correct?) and sitting on cushions. Good luck.
