Wanted to provide an update.
June 10th I took a Cialis and the urination symptoms seemed to disappear. I only had a sample so the urologist prescribed it for me. The rest of June, July, and August was good. I was drinking the marshmallow root tea and taking Cialis 5 mg daily and things were good.
Had a few days where I thought the sense of urination had returned but it would go away the next day. We vacationed, I drank what I wanted, and ate what I wanted for almost 2.5 months including alcohol.
The end of August we had a concert we attended and I drank more beer than I usually do. All the symptoms returned the next day. For two weeks I was running back and forth the bathroom it seemed. I could sleep all night but as soon as I would go in the morning, my bladder seemed to start cramping again. I went to the urologist again and he put me on a month of Doxycycline. He did a prostate exam but said it felt normal.
The pain moved from crazy urination down to the perineum area. I still have the sense of urination but it is not as bad. I just cannot seem to shake this. I have been taking papaya seed powder and I have very little discomfort in the testicles.
To summarize, I am taking Doxycycline, Diclofenac anti-inflammatory, and papaya seed powder daily. It seems like I have the testicle epididymis pain under controls, but this pelvic BS is driving me nuts.
Does anyone have any recommendations. I was going to finish the dose of antibiotics before doing anything else.
