I had a very bad infection 7 years ago that was diagnosed as prostatitis to a UTI to Epeditimitus. At the time I was given large amounts of antibiotics and anti-inflamitories. The uroligist said the infection had subsided. At that time and ever since I have had what I believe to be an irritated prostate. The lymph nodes around the groin area always feel swollen and sore, I have constant pain around the groin area , hips, lower back and testicles. It is worse after sex but is constant even when not having sex. I gave up sex for 7 months hoping it would help but the pain continued. Warm baths do help but only for an hour or so. I have seen uroligists, general doctors, and hernia doctors and had multiple blood tests, xrays, and mri's but they never found a cause. I'm hoping someone could help on a possible solution or at least something to help ease the discomfort. It hurts a lot whan standing or sitting for a while. I have tried many prescription (anti-inflamitories) and non-prescription (quercitin, acsorbic acid, curamin, urinary supprt) medications but they offer only limited help. The one thing that helps is taking levitra or cialis. I also had ed after the initial infection and found they help with the discomfort. The urologists don't know why. I don't take it for help with the ed as sex would be too painful. Thanks for the help.
