What is your score on the Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (posted on home page)?
If you have been diagnosed with prostatitis, please tell us your story: age, duration of symptoms, treatments, results, and the like.
Began with epididymitus which was mis-diagnosed for 5 weeks prior to treatment with doxcycline. Symptoms of testicle pain, prostate pain when I needed a bowel movement, night sweats, feeling hot and sweaty, pain in the perineum. Sore testicles went away after 2 weeks of doxcycline. Then began to get prostatitis. Symptoms: pain in the prostate (tender with examination), pain sitting, pain in thighs, groin also armpit and neck pain in lymph nodes. Pain subsided after 6 weeks of ciproflaxin however now have CPPS as diagnosed by urologist. All standard symptoms listed frequently in websites however a couple of more unusual ones: pain in armpits and neck frequently. White tongue in the morning, dry mouth, bad breathe, , constipation, delay in precum during sexual activity. Took two weeks of alpha blockers, perhaps they helped a little. Did the spit test for candida infection due to my white tongue in the morning, came up with classic positive result. I am going to ask my urologist for anti fungal tablets, and change my diet drastically. Still get reocurring epididymitis which last a couple of days. (all urine, semen, urethra slide swabs tests have been negative for bactrial from day one. Uultrasound showed normal prostate, but small epididal cyst).
