I've had this for a year now - losing hope. Finally diagnosed with Chronic Pelvic Pain/Chronic Non Bacterial Prostatitis - which is so wide it's almost meaningless
My symptoms are nasty inflamed sensations in scrotum - particularly on the right side; hot and fizzy urination - stream's not bad most of the time, and burning painful bowel movements which make the scrotal symptoms worse.
I got this after unfortunately taking 4 days of a prescribed antibiotic doxycycline - which had a terrible effect on my anus/rectum(seized it up so I had to have fecal infection treatment at A & E) - and even more unfortunately drinking beer some months after that; that's where the scrotal symptoms started.
I think my prostate is yeast infected brought on by the antibiotic and the beer. I've done a lot of research and have at last persuaded private Consultant to have a yeast test done to see if my semen is infected with fungus/bacteria - the urine tests have come up negative. I didn't fancy prostatic massage to produce fluid for a urine test, the Consultant tells me the semen test is equivalent and will "probably" indicate whether the prostate problem is fungal or not. I hope that's true.
Meanwhile I'm doing the diet - cutting out caffeine, dairy, alcohol, spicy, yeast sugar, gluten - though I can't help the odd lapse. I only took Naproxen for a bit, suspicious of it - and it did nothing anyway. Quercetin and saw palmetto doesn't seem to make any difference.
If this anything I've missed with can help me get this rotten horrible inflammation down at all? Doctors have been nigh on useless really
