Hi, I was diagnosed with Prostatitis around 2 months ago after an examination in my back passage, I have had urine tests and blood tests and have all come back clear so I can only assume that it is the non bacterial form that I have, I have been on antibiotics for around 7 weeks which seem to have no effect, My symptoms have varied over the time I have had this, to begin with it was palvic pain, worsened by sitting (especially driving), discomfort in penis and frequent urination, my symptoms eased off after 2 weeks and for a few days I felt back to normal, then after a long drive the symptoms were all back and worse than ever, I was struggling to walk from the overwhelming feeling of pressure in my pelvis along with the pain and discomfort on urination, doctor prescribed me Tramadol and signed me off work for 2weeks and told me to rest, I now find my symptoms are less severe however they seem to be gone when I wake up each morning then worsen through the day, I find a Hot water bottle under my crotch is the only thing that seems to help, I know some people have had a form of Prostatitis for years however I'm hoping to knock this on the head sooner rather than later, I now have a Prostatitis cushion, without it I literally cannot sit, I certainly could not drive without it, If anyone can offer any advice I would be very grateful. I cannot take Anti inflamatories due to a stomach problem. Thanks in advance. Alistair
