I had the same symptoms for 2 ½ years. I was treated with Levaquin for 10 days then Doxycycline for 30 days. Both times the symptoms subsided during treatments and both times the symptoms were back after a few days off the antibiotics. I was told (by 2 urologists and by my primary) about non-bacterial prostatitis and the fact that medical science doesn’t understand it and I would probably have to live with it.
I have one word: GARDNERELLA. Gardnerella vaginalis is an anaerobic gram-variable rod, little parasite. Notice the vaginalis in the name. A germ most frequently found in women. So frequently, that they don’t even really test for it in men.
The Gardnerella produces an alkaline environment, which is why the tip of my penis felt like a wasp stung it from time to time. Needless to say, I was highly-motivated to discover the solution.
I AM NOT A DOCTOR.
I AM NOT QUALIFIED TO GIVE YOU MEDICAL ADVICE IN ANY WAY!
The only advice I have is to ASK YOUR DOCTOR!
Consult with your doctor and ask him or her about the possibility of a gardnerella infection. If so, ask your Doctor if taking 500mg of Flagyl (metronidazole) twice a day for 7-10 days would be an appropriate therapy. Ask your doctor about prostate massages during the treatment time. Ask your doctor if the bacteria are more likely to encounter the antibiotic outside of the prostate rather then inside and if a prostate massage might help squeeze the germs out of the prostate. Ask your doctor if you are healthy enough to exercise and if exercise would increase the blood flow to the prostate and hence the antibiotic’s dispersion.
ASK YOUR DOCTOR! ASK YOUR DOCTOR! ASK YOUR DOCTOR!
I asked my doctor, and after 2 ½ long years, I am cured! Yea!
