Hi everyone,

I have been suffering from prostatitis for nearly 4 years now (Since feb/2006). I also had recurrent prostatitis 2 other times before. Both earlier occasions I was able to solve using antibiotics (Doxycicline to be specific).

This 3rd attack nothing seemed to work. Initially i had very very sevious symptoms, including urinary urgency/frequency, burning when passing semen/urine, burning pain in the bladder, burning in the thighs and soles of the feet.

I was initially diagnosed with prostatitis from yeast, and went through a yeast treatment for about 9 months without any successs. Since this did not work, i tried taking chinease herbs from a doctor in China. Did this for 3 months and my symptoms improved considerable. Urgency/frequency burning went away. However i started to get a lot of neuropathic pain and due to that had to stop this medication.

Since then i have been with another chinease practioner for about 2 years now. I no longer have urgency/frequency, pain in the bladder or burning symptoms. Only thing that is now prevalent is pain in sitting, and pain in my soles and legs (hypersensitivity).

My recent EPS check showed less that 10 pusscells and no clumps, however i am still not totall recovered. I beleive that i am still fighting a chronic infection, but due to the long term nature of the decease, i am also having a lot of neurogenic inflamation and pelvic floor dysfucntion.

Right now in addition to the herbal meds, i am also taking 300mg of Lyrica a day, to help with the neurogenic pain.

Hi Shehan

Thank you for your questions.

1. I know of no data that prostatitis causes an increased risk in prostate cancer. However, prostate cancer is a common disease and it can certainly co-exist with prostatitis.

2. Your symptoms are typical of the patients we see who do get relief with LRP. You may want to read some fo the self-reports linked off the upper left of the home page. The cost of surgery would vary depending upon where we do it. We have options in Miami and in Kansas. Ruth can explain the various options. She is at 305 936 0474.

Thank you. AK

Hi Shehan

I had mild symptoms after a hemorrhoid operation in 2000, then in 2007 it went severe with an e-coli urine infection. I had severe pain in the rectum and was up 6-7 times a night with urinary urgency for about a month. I was off work and almost suicidal by the end of the first month (antibiotics cleared up urinary infection but failed to cure prostatitis) but after starting quercetin and doing the Shoskes EDTA/Tetracycline protocol, the urinary symptoms were gone.

To this day I have problems sitting for long periods and pain after ejaculation for a few days but Lyrica has made a huge difference. I believe I definitely have an ecoli infection but antibiotics have failed. I still get yellow semen. I believe that the inflammation compresses the nerves in and around the prostate causing neuropathic pain and thats why Lyrica helps me. I don't have a problem with my heels, but before I started Lyrica I had a weird tingling/hyper sensitivity in my left foot when lying down on my back. Sometimes my foot would twitch-very weird. I still have discomfort in my tailbone when lying on my back.
