"Some research has been done in Canada on the effectiveness of cannabis as a pain treatment for those with CPPS. The results seem quite positive. Does anyone here have any experience of using cannabis to help the pain?"
"Thanks Blake, but there are 2 things to consider in your post:
1) Many prosta sufferers report that 3x/week ejaculating does not increase extra pain or symptoms. It might not help, but many say it also doesn't exacerbate. I have had periods…"
"Carl, I wonder if you had any updates on your progress with the Bahn injections. Have you had your 2nd or 3rd round yet? If so, how reduced is your problem & pain. Also curious to know how painful it is to receive these injections, if you pass…"

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.
I'm 59. I've had prostatitis for about 6 months. Standard treatments (2 rounds of antibiotics, prostate massage, hot sitz baths, etc.) have brought no improvement, and i my 6th month, it's worse than ever. A constant burning, agitated soreness in my groin that does not respond to NSAIDs and can keep me awake at night. Plus burning urination with pain/stinging at the tip of the penis fro 10-15 minutes after done.
There's a constant pain right at my rectum, my scrotum feels heavy, swollen and "sticky" to my thighs, and sometimes the tip of my penis hurts even when no recent urination.
I occasionally have "frequent urination nights," getting up to pee 5-6 times...but that's rare. Usually just 2 times a night
