Ohh your doing the EDTA Chelation Suppositories protocol. I have read good things about that regarding men lowering there calcification and symptoms
I actually did that protocol for about a month and I Found the edta to inflame my prostate to a unbearable point. I also found out later that i didn't have any calcification in my prostate. So i was probably not a good candidate anyway..
For what it's worth, I've found some improvement from taking Vitamin D/Calcium. Initially I started to take this because my bone density had reduced after a shoulder injury and it was suggested that long term lack of exercise (caused to a great extent by the sudden reduction in my exercise levels due to the pain and discomfort of prostatitis/epididymitis) had caused this. It certainly hasn't 'cured' me, but the year I've been taking the supplements has been the best year so far out of six with this condition. It may just be coincidental, but it's worth a try for anyone looking around for help. It's not expensive and won't do any harm.
I also had a bad reaction to trimethoprim in the form of Bactrim, which is a mixture of trimethoprim and another antibiotic. I've tried many antibiotics, none of which have done any good, but none of which made things worse except for this one. As I said in another post, the doctor refused to believe me. He said it was impossible to have a reaction to this drug and in his experience I was the first person ever to have an adverse reaction. He advised me to continue. I tried again with a similar bad effect. Of course I stopped immediately and the symptoms went back to their usual level. When I checked online there were lots of people complaining about this antibiotic, so I was hardly unique. Sometimes I wonder why these people become doctors.
Anyway, Blake, good luck, and let's hope things improve for you next year!
