Ah yes, Psychosomatic!

 

When I started having Prostate problems, which eventually ended up with having a Cystoscopy, the doc suggested it 'might all be in my head' & later said: 'yes, well, we all get pain in our testicles'.

 

After 5 visits to him, I got referred to a Urologist.

 

Just be persistent, Batty, & eventually it will get sorted.

 

:smile:

I had a wife who had munchausen syndrome (by proxy) dunno. ?

 

It cost a small fortune. Late 70s.

She did finish up psychosomatic. 

Also had a heart murmur. 

Or mitral valve prolapse. 

 

It's scary stuff. 

For all involved. 

Patients and care providers. 

 

Nobody knows better than the person who is suffering. 

 

Fir me, It took two years to get a full medical diagnosis on my arms.

 

I lost the use of both arms, starting with the thumbs sticking out. 

Then the hands lost strength and grip. Mid 2014.

I couldn't work for three years. 

No disability pay.

Three years off retirement. 

Self funded myself Until pension. 

Caused a divorce. 45 years.

 

MRIs nuclear antibody, even became a Guinea pig for Neurological science in Melbourne to see what could be found..

Bilateral medial neuropathy. 

Cause unknown...

The nerve signals from the brain to the arms had become damaged. 

 

Possibly carrying my brother's coffin who had died from Parkinson's.?

No right answer. 

That didn't make me feel better. 

 

I still take pain relief. Tramadol. 

 

The message is,  dont give up.

Someone will get there.

 

I'm still smiling. 

It is the land of smiles.

I am just not sure though if thats a normal reaction to have your prostate massaged?  Would a normal, fit and healthy prostate cause no pain when massaged?  Or only an infected prostate?  Because I can say for sure, if pain only comes with an infected prostate than mine must be infected because it hurt like a swine when he went in on Saturday.

 

Then again, he did the same the week before - but not as aggressive with his technique - and it didnt realy hurt.  So this just adds to my confusion.

 

Can I just ask - you mentioned another poster who suggested an antibiotic, you asked for it but the doctor didnt know about it.  Which antibiotic is that please?  

 

 

Mine was palpated in the UK four weeks ago. 

Lady doctor. 

Highly proficient in this. 

It was picked up as enlarged, but I honestly hardly knew she had inserted and felt around. 

Knees under the chin.

Lay on the left side. 

Take a deep breath.

 

It certainly wasn't like the one in Melbourne. 

He had 8 inch wide hands and fingers to match. 

Talk about squeal like a pig.

He actually made me pee.

 

Technique is everything.

Tramadol and Amytriptyline can exacerbate the symptoms. 

I stopped my amytriptyline. 

For me certainly amitriptyline is a no go drug, esp as I like my red wine!! Two weeks on it and felt like sh1t and couldn't remember most of it!!

 

Tramadol also makes me feel nauseous and drowsy, so I came off that.

 

I am allergic to sulpha drugs, but taking Tamsulosin was no problem for me.

Tamsulosin is unlikely to help given prostate not enlarged

Sent from my SM-J701F using Thailand Forum - Thaivisa mobile app
 

But it can help with relaxing the muscle tissue inside the prostate and the bladder neck thereby making it easier to pass water.

 

Also is the fact that the tissue inside of the prostate can grow and compress the urethra, with very little seen as the growth in actual size of it, hence the compression aspect.

 

"The size of the prostate does not always determine the severity of the blockage or symptoms. Some men with greatly enlarged prostates have little blockage and few symptoms, while other men who have minimally enlarged prostates have greater blockage and more symptoms".

That is interesting because I am allergic to sulpha drugs to so need to keep this in mind if I need to start medicating further down the road.
