I started to have this condition five years ago at the age of 53. I had a very slightly raised PSA and underwent biopsy which was negative and chronic non-bacterial prostatitis was diagnosed. The condition comes and goes over periods lasting up to ten months and can be very uncomfortable. I suffer mainly from aching/discomfort between my testicles and my anus, frequent urges to urinate and an occasional 'dribbling' feeling in my penis. My GP gives me Indoramin and they do seem to help (although my urologist doubts that they have anything other than a placebo effect). My urologist gave me tips about how to avoid setting off a bout of discomfort, including - no alcohol at a greater concentration than 20%; don't sit on hard/cold surfaces; dont sit for too long; cut down on caffine and drink 2 litres of liquid each day. The condition seems very common and I have two friends (both a couple of years younger than me) who suffer from it and have done so for years. We have all been subjected to huge doses of anti-biotics which made no difference at all!
