I have been dealing with chronic bacterial prostatitis for nearly four years off and on. I take the typical antibiotics, Bactrim, Cipro or Levaquin. They usually help and then within a few weeks after stopping them I get sick again. I'd like to ask about your symptoms. I get sick like I have the flu. I get chills, urinating a lot and almost total retention. But I self cathe. Many times I'll get a low grade headache for about a week before I get full blown sick. It's usually the precursor. The thing that concerns me is that typically on day one or the start of this episode, my blood pressure will spike and lasts about an hour. It's in the range of 200/70 and normally my bp is in the 120/60 numbers. Does anyone else have these blood pressure spikes and what do you do for it. I don't think I've ever had a spike like these that's not immediately followed by prostatitis. My urologist says it's the immune system going in overdrive from the immediate bacterial load. I'm not a doctor. I don't know. Any comments would be appreciated.
Thank you and I wish you all good health.
