Been suffering Prostatitis on and off for 5-6 years now 55 . I'm probably lucky as doesn't really affect sex life (bit painful dull thud couple days after), urine flow is not to desperate although bouts of not feeling quite empty and throb at tip of penis. Often just a low level discomfort with fairly regular painful flare ups that appear connected to back pain.
I get grief with lower back / hip a lot and with pins n needles down to toes and sometimes in arms during an prostatitis flare up trouble is hard to separate that from general back , muscle aches with a life of outdoor work.
I am pretty sure bending , stooping and lifting sets the prostatitis off ,then the groin ,back and general undercarriage aches . A severe aches down the inside leg at times however a dose of Voltarol usually reduces discomfort to low level however using that more often nowadays. Anyone else get these symptoms ? . At wits end trying to separate muscle / back nerves and prostatitis symptoms.
