I know the majority of folks on here are women, but also know there are a few men lurking.

Again, I don't come around much anymore as life has more or less returned to normal, although I still have a few mild symptoms that flare from time to time. Specifically mild night sweats of head/neck, mild muscle twitching, mild tinnitus, etc.

Anyway...I was d/x'd in 2010 and have been in the 90% range since about 2012.

LLMD currently things what is left is either Brucellosis or Bart, Mold, Yeast, and/or Parasites (or some combination thereof.)

Anyway...back in April I started to notice that I had occasional, mild "bladder pressure." It was mild and I can usually ignore.

THis has come and gone over the past few months. Lately, when I've had it, I struggle to pinpoint exactly what the issue is. Is it bladder related? Is it Prostate related? Is it something else related to pelvic floor.

Here is what I experience now:
-Mild discomfort / pressure in the bladder/suprapubic area
-SOmetimes discomfort (mild burning) in the hip area
-Sometimes mild discomfort in the testicles or urethra.
-Occasional, mild feelings of needing to urinate, but these go away.

Here is what I don't have:
-discharge
-pain when urinating. (Feels pretty good actually)
-Pain when ejaculating (also feels pretty good [Wink] )
-BLood in urine / semen

I've read about Interstitial Cystitis (IC). It sounds horrible and while I may have the pressure / suprapubic discomfort, I don't have other symptoms.

I've read about Prostatitis, which seems like a closer fit. But then again, I don't have some symptoms listed.

I've read about bladder infection / UTI, but I don't have the discomfort when urinating, etc.

Right now it isn't bad...but I worry it will get worse. And I am worried because this is a NEW symptom for me. I haven't had a "New" symptom in years.

Anyone have any idea? Nothing has changed on my end except I was targeting Biofilms, Brucella/Bart (with Byron Why A-Bio), and parasites when this all started.

Thanks. I rarely get concerned about symptoms anymore...but am definitely concerned about this.

Mine was probably prostatitis from lyme, and bart, or what ever other bug might have been in there. Get the doc to check the prostate.

If it burns and hurts horribly, it is probably an infection. [Wink] My PSA levels were very low, but then again I am only thirty-five.

I had horrible hip pain, and trouble going when I needed to as it progressed, but the doc put me on an antibiotic that also happened to hit lyme.

This happened before I knew I had lyme. I got diagnosed with lyme two months later.

For me (I have IC) .. it felt great while peeing ..but the minute I was through.. BAM! More pain.

If I have an infection, it HURTS to pee.

I'm doing much much better with my IC .. it flares when I eat foods high in salicylates or high in histamine. You may want to try avoiding at least the foods high in histamine to see if it's better.

Eating leftovers can also cause IC symptoms for me.

Also the IC sites tell you what other foods to avoid.

If you've ever smoked or been around smokers, get screened for bladder cancer. My urologist insists this is real.

I would get this checked out. Best not to assume that new symptoms are from Lyme and co-infections, especially if you have been feeling pretty good/stable.

My husband used to have Lyme and despite being cured he tends to think he is relapsing when he has a health issue. Each time he has had an issue it has not been a relapse/Lyme and co-infections.
