    Hatim.  So sorry that you are going through this but you may have to deal with this for the rest of your life.  I have a friend that got it when he was 17.  He is 33 now had gets it a couple of time a year.  Over the last 5 years I have to deal with it.  I'm 63 and each man is different .  We all have different symptoms.  I have a few of what you are going through also pain in groin and back also my Penis goes numb.  I have no Idea what you are doing other then the saw palmetto and other stuff.  You may have to change your drinking habits.  There are things you may have to stay away from.  My Urologist give me a list to stay away from.  Things I can have and things that I can try that may not bother me.  It does work.  Please look into it.  Also please do not let any doctor tell you you need a procedure.  At your age you done.  Good luck  Ken

    Hatim,   Have you tried the antibiotics ? If you don't have a Urologist you should get one.  A Urologist can culture your urine to tell what kind of bacteria you have, and prescribe an antibiotic.   If that doesn't work he can massage your prostate and culture bacteria from the discharge, to prescribe an antibiotic. 

    If those things don't work you may have non bacterial prostatitis.  For that you can try anti imflammatory medicines.  The enzyme supplement Serrapeptase might help also.  Garlic might also help.  You have to crush fresh garlic with a garlic crusher or knife, to activate the allicin. You can put it on toast with olive oil or melted cheese.  You can also eat it along with a bannana to make it go down easier.

    If you are doing an aggrivating activity like bike riding you may have to stop for a few months. 

    Finally look up information about the Stanford protocol / Wise Anderson protocol.  They developed a theory that some non bacterial prostatitis is cause by tension in the pelvic floor and developed a course of action to deal with it.  Dr. Wise wrote a book called "A Headache in the Pelvis".

    Hope this helps

    Saw palmetto and the rest seem useless for most men I know.  I will suggest this: ask your uro for a prescription for sulfameth (Bactrim) or similar.  That will likely bring some relief.  But perhaps most important:  don't overdo orgasms.  At your age, you are perhaps ready to go multiple times per day.  A sure fire way to aggravate -- if not precipitate -- prostatitis.  (And you may find that your doc won't tell you this.  They seem too embarrassed to talk about it.  I am 72 and I oughta' know wink

    My symptoms are mostly urinary too. At one point they thought I had interstitial cystitis. I have tried everything you can imagine to deal with the urination as it is nonstop. I did bladder installations where they put medications directly in your bladder to stop those sensations. I never really had bladder pain though. The only thing that helped somewhat was botox into the pelvic floor. It was done at the smallest dose of 100 mL when it can go up to 300 so I am going to try that again. Thing is my prostatitis came from an unnecessary catheter and it could have damaged me down there. It left an infection that was handled properly as well. It has shown up again though I took the right course of antibiotics and the infection was not there again. I believe that you could take years of antibiotics and they won't do anything because they don't penetrate that area well. I might try antibiotic injections straight into the prostate. The way the catheter was put in and taken out inappropriately leads to me to believe theres some damage along with the symptoms I had afterwards. I could barely urinate for 1 to two weeks before all hell broke loose on me and I can't even work or function properly because of this. Basically the bladder neck muscles don't work right and you are left with all sorts of urinary symptoms like hesitancy, frequency, urgency, incomplete emptying, and weak stream.  We are looking at the bladder neck now with videourodynamics after urodynamics showed something was off. It can happen in a situation even not like mine where it is misdiagnosed as chronic prostatitis. I have even tried electrical stimulation therapy to try and correct my urination. I already saw one reconstructive urologist who would just go in there and tighten the area so I urinate correctly again. I am seeing another one for a second opinion as well. I can let you know what happens with my treatment and see if any of this can help you as well. I don't know how bad your urination problem is though. I could literally go hundreds of times a day, but I can't live in the bathroom so I just hold it even though always have that urge to go. I also feel spasms down there where strong urgency comes on and then retracts as well as small amounts of continuously leaking urine. I have tried a bunch of supplements to as well as physical therapy. Message me if you would like any advice. I have been to six urologists so far in about two and a half years. This condition is ruining my life and I hate to see others go through it as I'm simply not going to accept it. In my opinion all of prostatitis starts out as an infection that hits all the muscles and nerves in your pelvic floor causing urination problems and pain. The infection then stays trapped in the prostate continuing to cause you problems because bacteria creates biofilm to survive and there is a lot of fatty tissue there. Such little attention is paid to prostatitis by the medical community that it is embarassing. There's no reason we should have to suffer like this.

      Inneedofadvice,    The supplement Serrapeptase can dissolve biofilms.  It allows the body's own defenses to get in and kill off bacteria and can allow antibiotics to be more effective at killing bacteria.  You can buy it on-line or from some vitamin/supplement stores. SerraGold from Enzymedica is a brand some people, on this website, have recommended. Raw garlic can also dissolve biofilms, crush or chop it and put it on toast with olive oil or melted cheese to make garlic bread. But don't heat it because heat will reduce it's effectiveness.  You can also eat it with a bannana to make it go down easier.

    It’s a horrible condition and I know  how you feel . I have found that stress makes it worse . Mine was so much worse before I was officially diagnosed as my anxiety decreased . For me it comes on strong for a few months and then disappears . Antibiotics helped me the first time I had it but have done nothing since . Relaxation, a sitz bath and yoga may help and apparently ( according to my URO) pumpkin seeds . 

    Good luck
