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 ) -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.
