I've noticed there are plenty of accounts of Prostatitis following oral sex - including mine. 12 months ago I received oral sex and a couple of weeks later I felt burning at the tip of my penis with a swollen opening (meatus). This was followed by excruciating pain - like a nail had been hammered into my dick - along with severe testicle pain, bladder, abdominal, lower back and groin pain. Two trips to A&E, 5 different courses of antibiotics and three separate STI tests - and nothing can be found. It's terrible to say, but I was ready to kill myself because the pain was so unbearable. After five months, the pain started to lessen, but I'm still suffering from pain in my urethra/penis and a swollen and red meatus. I feel pain in my balls, dick and lower back when I sit on a hard chair and I've been unable to work for six months. This is such a nasty illness which doctors seem reluctant and unwilling to investigate. They are all too ready to send sufferers away believing they'll never be cured and that it's all in their head.
The purpose of my post is to make contact and see if I can offer support to others and also to talk about what might have triggered it? Like I said, mine started after I got a BJ and it got me wondering if this is some kind of virus, rather than a bacterial infection (as antibiotics seem totally ineffective in treating it, as far as I'm aware)? Keep fighting. There are lots if us out there and together we can get through this.
