Hi all. Im new year. Thanks for taking the time to read this and respond. Appreciate it. I'm a 44 year old living in Finland.
Last november after being diagnosed with prostatitis. I was given cipro and naproxen for pain. After about 3 weeks it went away.
Now about a week and a half ago its come back. So same deal. I'm on cipro and naproxen again for 10 days.
I have a question about some of the weird symptoms of prostatitis. Some of these symptoms include like a knawing pain in the upper legs. So groin area but then going all the way down my legs to the back of the calves almost.
The pain at times feels like a nerve kind of pain. My leg muscles also feel weak. Ive been trying to google about this and not having much luck. How typical a symptom is this to prostatitis? I guess there are quite a bit of nerves there and maybe this is some kind of radiating pain from the prostate. Just freaking me out. Anyone had this?
Best relief i get now is a heat pack i put hot water in and put beneath my legs. Im not sure if this leg pain/ weakness is referred to as sciatica? Just seems at time that this leg pain and weakness is the worse part.
I also do crossfit and am unsure if some of the movements we do, lots of kegel exercises, squats, below the waste kinds of things could make this kind of thing worse. I have not been given any kind of "chronic" diagnosis yet. But just made me wonder if possibly certain types of exercises can be especially bad for prostatitis.
Currently at work its a bit tough sitting and the days can be quite tough having to try to tough this out. Im really hoping this will get better soon. Just a little creeped out with the muscle pain. It does seem like my arm muscles also feel a little weak.
Seems the worse thing is googling on this. All you find is cancer this and cancer that. So not very encouraging to read online about this. Just freaks me out. Guess is the fear right now that what if this doesnt go away. Very unpleasant feeling.
Many thanks to you for comments. Appreciate it.
