Chronic non bacterial prostatitis

Posted , 6 users are following.

I've been having frequent urination at night after eating too much spicy food a few years ago. The dr said it was non bacterial and id just have to live with it (im late twenties). Unfortunately 3 months ago the condition got a lot worse (in response to some ayruvedic medicines), and now I have painful ejaculation, urination, and a feeling like there is a golf ball up my ass. Things that help are hot baths and naproxen, and if things are going well I don't notice symptoms. However I had sex yesterday and now in a lot of pain. Quercetin and cernilton seem good for this from reading papers, but I tried quercetin and it made me wired and I couldn't sleep. I'll guess I'll try cernilton next. Anyone have any advice? I am waiting to see my gp again but I reckon it'll just be another negative bacteria test. I'd rather not be hooked on naproxen long term. Broccoli soup every day seems to help, strange as that seems...

    It IS bacterial, 100%. Get a SEMEN culture

      My urologist thinks I might have prostatitis, so I'm on nanproxen and ciprofloxacin for a month to see if it helps.  I have a feeling I have an overactive bladder, since I only have urinary frequency (constant urge to urinate) and some drops after urination.  

      The first urologist I went to thought I might have BPH but my current urologist thinks it's unlikely since my prostate is only 20grams and the onset of symptoms was sudden.

      with no testing for bacteria ciprofloxacin is empiric and may or may not work. there is no such thing as overreactive bladder for no reason. What is your age?

      My urologist said it could be a bladder stone, which I read causes overactive bladder.  Then again, I'm just guessing.  I meet with him again at the end of the month.  

      If the meds aren't working, then he'll look for other causes.  He seems pretty competent and answered all my questions unlike the fancy pants urologist I went to that just wanted to put me on alfuzosin and told me I should be happy because I was the healthiest person he had seen all day.

      Go to prostatitis.org it seems broccoli has an anti inflammatory chemical that is released into the water when boiled, it's called the broccoli treatment. It's not going to hurt anyway and broccoli is cheap and nutritious! My symptoms slowly decreased over a week during it, but they could have done that for other reasons.

    I would have my prostate checked out by a good UROLOGIST, not a gp. It sounds like you have an infection of the prostate, and the gp doesn't know what's going on.

    The prostate is made of fatty tissue, and it sometimes takes quite a while on meds to cure an infection there, but get it checked out by a urologist.
