"Diet change and Myrabetric.  Much of the treatments are similar, except for a heavy reliance on the "IC diet."  But I had no stream before and the myrabetric has given me a normal flow.  Like I said I still have a long way…"

My Journey

In June of 2008, something happened to me changing my life forever, almost killing me.  This something is termed Prostatitis.  Going on 5 years now, I felt like I was through the woods.  I have spent countless hours on research, visiting urologists, running tests, trying medications, everything under the sun. It is my hope in writing this to inspire others for hope and also to record the events of my dysfunction.  Back in 2008 I was 23 years old getting ready to graduate from JMU, in…See More

What is your score on the Chronic Prostatitis Symptom Index (posted on home page)?
n/a
If you have been diagnosed with prostatitis, please tell us your story: age, duration of symptoms, treatments, results, and the like.
I just turned 28 and was diagnosed with prostatitis 4 and a half years ago, a month after graduating from college. My main symptom which became debiltating, was the constant urgency, full bladder. I have seen more than a dozen urologists and done extensive research on the disease for the better part of five years now. I saw a remission of symptoms after a 2 year struggle. There is no way to describe the fear and pain that I went through. However there is hope. I read the book a headache in the pelvis and it helped tremendously. I am having a flare up, been 6 weeks, but I know that once bacterial infection and disease is ruled out that anxiety can be a huge contributing factor.
