    Are you seeing a urologist or just your regular doc? Prostatitis can be complicated so you want to see a urologist who can help sort it out.

    Get yourself some specialists, a good urologist and then also go to a colon-rectal surgen to be checked. It could be tigthness in the anal muscles. Or none infected prostatitis but that should have been fixed with the voltaren. In fact between the voltaren and the antibiotic I would think all prostate issues would be cleared except of course cancer.

    Get a good urologist, have him discard cancer, have him measure the prostate , your voiding , check the bladder but I think you also need a colon rectal surgeon to see if you have "ani levator syndrome" or something in the colon.

    My friend, good look and get to good specialist ASAP.

    Hello,

    First get your whole abdomen Ultrasound done.. See report if you have prostatis or not.. See the size of prostate.. Drink lots of water.. It would help in burning.. Ultrasound will clear all your doubts..

    I would guess it is urine infections as I suffer the same and am going for a Cystoscopy on Monday to check it out after a recent MRI scan. Also i have an infection in my penis so all this makes that area very tender. Try and find a Urologist who specialises in Prostatitis as many have no idea about it. Hope you can get some help.

      Hi Supertractorman,  I am wondering what the MRI and Cystoscopy revealed.  I am going to get an MRI Friday and a Cystoscopy the following Thursday.  The pain in my plevic region began last October. I have pain levels of 6 to 10 and can't even play golf.  The pain seems to be located on the left side of the prostate.  My pain only comes with movement.  If I am still it is OK.  I am on my second doctor now.  The first one had me on Cipro for 6 months and told me to take Aleve for the pain.  No progress.  My current doctor perfromed the REZUM procedure on me in May.  Everything went well and the pain was mostly gone.  The flow was much better also.  I thought I was returning to normal.  Unfortunately the pain returned in September as painful as before the REZUM accompanied by pain as if I have to urinate urgently .  I am hoping the diagnostics locate the source of my pain.

      Hi Thomas,

      Have your doctors mentioned something called Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome to you? Your symptons sound very much like it.

      Because inflammation may be involved, it's possible the REZUM process itself temporarily relieved your symptons, but the results of the process had nothing to do with the symptons going away, nor would any other prostate procedures produce lasting results.  Antibiotics are sometimes used but not always successful. If your upcoming diagnostics doesn't locate a pain source, you might start researching Pelvic Chronic Pain Syndrome and start trying various therapies including a more holistic approach than tends to be offered from the typical doctor and urologist.

      MRI has shown the Prostatitis and the Cystoscopy looks fine. Think it is down to infections again. Have taken last of current Antibiotics today so will wait 48 hours before I have a test again. Penis very sore for Cystoscopy so they just used KY jelly instead of Anaesthetic jelly.  Got to see Consultant next.

      Thank you for the update.  I hope my dianostics find something that can be fixed.  I am begining to believe that the urologist don't have a solution for relieving the pain.

      Try and get your Urologist to refer you to the Pain Clinic, I found them excellent at reviewing the drugs being used and suggesting others, only disadvantage was the 6 month wait to see, but certainly worth it.
