 Jake is doing better

I am pleased to say  that I have been off the newsgroup completely for
several months, but wanted to give everyone a positive update. I was tested
for IC back in early October. I took the potassium test...I can't remember
the exact name. Anyway, I tested positive. I am still not convinced that I
have IC or prostatitis, but I know that I have some sort of malfunction down
there, and I have had problems for 5 years now. Some of you may remember
this stuff started for me as a {*filter*}ager and has carried into my young {*filter*}
life. Anyway, I am 24 now and am feeling better than I have in the last 5
years. I stopped all natural supplements. My uro put me on Palmelor--an
antidepressant. I take 10 mill, 3 times daily, and elmiron. I am giving the
elmiron its six month trial; however, I don't think it has anything to do
with my wellness. I switched to Elavil and Atarax for a while, but my
symptoms returned, once I switched back to Palmelor by symptoms improved, so
I know that the Palmelor is working. Here is my current situation.  Rarely
have to get up at night anymore. Frequency for the most part is way down, as
is pain and pressure. I could be happy at this level, although I do hope
that I continue to improve. Best regards to everyone; there is a light at
the end of the tunnel. Keep your heads up, and thanks to everyone that was
there when I really needed it.

Best of luck,
Jake Barnes

A lot of prostatitus sufferers complain of a pain in the tip of the
{*filter*} - do some of them mean in their foreskin? I ask because my
foreskin has been hurting for about four months. The problem started
when I was a bit over zealous poking at some little lumps on my foreskin
(after a GUM clinician told me to pus them with a needle). Anyway, that
evening my whole groin was burning and after a few weeks it transpired
that I had prostatitus, which has been present now for four months. I've
done long stints on Cipro and Doxycycline to no avail. I keep telling
doctors that the pain radiates from the foreskin i.e. I only get the
symptoms of prostatitus after I pull back my foreskin or get an
{*filter*}. The weird thing is that the foreskin hurts more when I sit
down. It also is always fine in the morning. Anyway, I just wondered -
since the foreskin must be linked to the prostate in some way, could a
problem with the foreskin cause prostatitus? (I suppose I should say
CPPS - I don't have too many urinary problems at all really). Before all
of this began, I used to get a burning in my prostate if I had too much
sex or {*filter*}d too much. I'm wondering about a connection between
trauma or friction to the foreskin and inflammation of the prostate -
does anyone think this is possible? Ben, England, 23

Well, I suppose you could submit to circumcision, but there's no guarantee that
this would help.  Then again, it might make things worse.
