Hi I'm new to this forum and in need of advice . About 2 years ago I woke up with slight discomfort in my groin area . It was quite painful sitting like there was something wrong with my prostate . I went to my doctors and had a rectal exam and told it seemed normal ,was given Cipro for 2 weeks and told if it doesn't clear up to seek out my nearest GUM clinic. It never went away so off I went to the clinic . They checked me over and said its prostititus even though there was no infection present and prescribed 8 weeks of Cipro again . All STD checks came out negative. Things never recovered and to add to this I started getting a very cold penis and erection problems . It feels lifeless and rubbery and burns sometimes going for a pee. To cut a long story short 2 years later and numerous doctors and uros Its still the same with a sticky patch on the penis shaft and scrotum even after a shower it is right back to sticky again. This is a list of things I have tried .
Different antibiotics ,fungal creams / fluconazole , Std checks , 3 rectal exams , PSA test 2 times was 1.0 , Candida supplements / diet . tried lots of other things saw palmetto etc
The symptoms come and go and seem worse sitting especially leaning forward , I have also developed a red rash on my face on forehead and under eyes its like clusters of broken veins but not raised . Things I have researched ...
CPPS , Nerve damage / entrapment , Candida yeast overgrowth , lymes tick infection , some sort of std not showing up on tests .
I am not getting the help I need through the NHS and have actually been told its all in my head and I'm depressed etc which makes me angry to say the least . Trying to get tests done is like getting blood from a stone and I haven't the money to go private . I am waiting for an MRI scan but waiting time is 8+months . I am also waiting for pelvic pain specialist evaluation . I am going out of my mind with this and my relationship with my 7 year girlfriend is straining as I said its been 2 years and there seems to be lots of others online going through this . I feel let down with the medical industry and feel hopeless and suicidal . I have come here looking advice / help to point me towards some relief . thanks in advance
