Hi, these past few months I've been scowring the web to figure out what I have. It started out what seemed to be a regular UTI. I prolonged going to the doctors on the account that I'm a broke college student, but when I did he said I had a UTI and gave me antibiotics. These unfortuanatly didn't work. I went again and he said there was no bacteria in my urine and could not perscribe more. He was a little rude about it saying I might cook something up with it and that he wasn't buying my "story". Later things got worse I started going to the restroom almost every hour. My symptoms seem to fluctate, mostly being:
-Tinglying in pernis and pelvic area
-Testicle pain and back (a month since I felt it though)
-Sometimes burning sensation when urinating
-Feels like something is obstructing my bowel movements
-Small, string like stools
-Weak urine flow, almost in waves
I went to another doctor and the urine test came back negative for infection. She then scheduled me for a sonogram (it's been a month, but I have it this Saturday, THANKFULLY). I've been on a crusade to ease my pain - Tumeric, Prostate Pills (saw palmetto and zinc), Cranberry pills, no caffine nor spicy foods, Brocolii Treatment, Frequent ejaculations and etc. .I thought I had IC, but as I do more research it seems it's prostatitis and the supplements I've been taking seem to ease my situation by 20%-50%..
So my question is what is the possiblity of it being bacterial? Should I ask for all the tests like a prostate massage to get the fluid for a culutre? 4 glass urine test? Is there something I should ask the urologist when I see him/her? Does non bacterial prostatitis ever actually go away? Maybe just a little? What has worked for you or other people? Cirpo? Prostate massage? I use to be a pretty happy guy, but I see myslef slipping into depression here and there. There are times when I have no symptoms for a few minutes and I just pause with happiness untill the tinlgy feeling comes again.
