Hi all, my problems started about 10 weeks ago when I had frequent urination during the day and irritation and pain in the perineum region which occasional rectal pain. Saw 2 separate GPs who told me I had a slightly enlarged prostate but offered no real help. I then went to see a consultant urologist who told me my prostate was fine and not enlarged (smooth and flat). He prescribed PAMVAX (Tamsulosin) for what he thinks is prostatitis (presumably nonbacterial?) which does seem to have made peeing a bit easier but still having to get up 3 or so times at night to go to the loo. After 2 or 3 times I just lie on my back and hope the feeling passes which it sometimes does. Have tried not drinking alcohol or any fluids a couple of hours before going to bed but it doesn't seem to make much difference and I'm sometimes mostly awake all night!
Anyone else had similar experience? Did you have further tests (I've been offered further investigations but dont want to risk infections, etc). Did you recover? After how long?
I assume the consultant is correct in his diagnosis. Just a bit confused as symptoms seem to point more to BPH?
