I have a pain in my prostate aera

Hello,
Male 41:
I have a pain in my prostate aera, right epididymis, weak urine stream and a weak erection that started a year ago and will not go away!
I've had Prostate exams, 3 Cystoscops, PSA blood work, Flow Analyzer, Urine test, Ultrasound, CT scan.
ALL NEGATIVE RESULTS
I have taken, Tobramycin, Cipro, Bacclofen, Levaquin, Doxycycline, Flomax, Uroxatrol and Terazosin(this really helps with the weak urine stream) and take lots of Advil.
NOTHING HAS SHOW RESULTS EXCEPT FOR Terazosin.

My Doctor says to have lots of sex but that makes the prostate aera hurt more!!
I still have pain in my prostate aera!
Has anybody in this fourm found any results they can share with me?
Please help

Hi,
How long have you been taking advil?
Advil has been known to worsen prostate enlargement.

"People with heart disease, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, narrow angle glaucoma, or difficulty in urination due to enlargement of the prostate gland should not take this medication unless directed by a doctor"

You seem to have responded best to a drug that specifically acts at the prostate gland to relieve symptoms.

"Terazosin (Hytrin) is a selective alpha 1 antagonist used for treatment of symptoms of an enlarged prostate (BPH). It also acts to lower the blood pressure, and is therefore a drug of choice for men with hypertension and prostate enlargement."
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terazosin

Given the above, you should:

Discontinue Advil at the earliest. Switch to other medication that does not have prostate side effects.

Rule out prostatitis with your urologist.
Drink plenty of fluids, in excess of 2000 ml.
Increase intake of natural Vitamin C.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and spicy foods.

Do keep us posted on your doubts and progress.
regards
