I'm going to posit two things and you can consider re-investigating both or neither as you choose.
First, I'd like to roll back to your previous treatment for a more systemic infection. While you're noticing outbreaks in your skin with the itching that is not resolved by topical remedies, a systemic invasion of fungus or yeast (like candida) can trigger a number of the symptoms you are reporting. These may be further amplified by the fact a systemic infection will weaken your immune system and cause other symptoms to rise to the surface that are usually managed by a strong immune system. Sometimes the treatment for a systemic infection causes further irritation from the medications used. And while you're having a reaction to the medication, it feels like you're not resolving the systemic infection. What can happen here is that they trade off with one another. The medication attacks the yeast, the yeast dies and makes you feel sick, you have a reaction to the yeast die off, the medication then makes you sick, you stop, and then the cycle isn't sufficiently broken that it all comes back in one form or another.
As far as bladder friendly diets, I think the urinary stuff may just be the symptom and not the thing you need to treat. While you can certainly try something like http://www.justbepainfree.com/product/WEM.html to soothe bladder symptoms (used by folks with interstitial cystitis).
The second thing that comes to mind when you say that an internal pressure seems to subdue some of your symptoms, goes back to point of view that makes me think allergies. When physical pressure on nerves changes the chronic irritation you have described, it makes me think that your nervous system is being overstimulated.
While your urologist dismissed the parasites, he may not be considering those that don't reside in the urinary tract. An example of one that comes from eating some seafood (like clams), so durable that it can survive deep frying, is a parasite that lives in your gut but exudes a neuro-toxin that causes prickly or tingly feelings in various sensitive areas of your body. It can make you think you have to pee, that you have athlete's foot, or give you a rash under your arms, elbows, neck, groin, knees, webbing of hands or feet. It's like someone turned up the volume on the whole world and sometimes every sensation can set of a painful, itchy,or burning feeling. Some people describe it as areas of creepy-feeling skin that don't turn off.
It may sound a little weird, but I might suggest you visit an applied kinesiologist. This is a specialist who uses muscle response testing to isolate seemingly huge numbers of possible factors into very discrete yes/no answers that your body reveals about what's going on. While they would not treat your symptoms, they would likely be able to confirm the root cause of your myriad reported symptoms and allow you to proceed with focused care instead of more guessing from me or any other doctor.View Thread
While pimples on the face often occur during puberty, they are a result of hormones, not sexual activity.
Weakness in the body can be caused by hundreds of things. You'll have to be much more specific in describing what you have observed and how a change came to cause you concern before anyone can assess what might be going on.View Thread
It is not uncommon to cause a minor injury or impinge a nerve during masturbation that can send a displaced signal to the tip of your penis, even if you are not masturbating vigorously. Things like overstretching or injuring some fascia can cause a painful sensation. As can dislodging some gelatinous globule during ejaculation.
Most likely it is temporary, and since it has a direct association starting with your activity, is likely related. If it has been this three days and the situation has not noticeably improved, please report here how it has changed.
Because of the nerve density in this area, something that occurs internally could be misrepresented as external by nerve feedback. Most commonly this dislocated sensation appears at the tip of the penis, when not at the root cause's location.View Thread
ancientherb, While there is certainly room for valid treatment options outside the western medical practice, this is not what Scottc1 was asking about. He has not run out of options, only confidence with his doctors (of any variety). I too encourage him to seek more care, and demand better care, but an acupuncturist is not going to be able to assess or repair an incorrectly handled procedure better than the surgeon who was directly involved.View Thread
This sounds more like possibly a pelvic floor dysfunction, if it is even a urologic condition. I don't know where the pain is that you're reporting though. And I'm not convinced yet that it is a urologic condition causing the various symptoms, even though the outward symptoms seem to focus on manifestations in that area.
As soon as you mentioned pain with eating, fatigue, and loss of weight, I stop thinking urologic condition and start thinking something more systemic/internal. Unfortunately it is too complex to solve in a forum like this. Please continue to pursue with doctors and do not allow the answer "I don't know" from them. Make them figure it out.View Thread
Anon_60492, you must see a urologist to determine what the substance is. Guessing is a useless pursuit when it is incredibly easy to find out for sure by visiting the urologist and then to deal with the specific circumstance causing the issue.View Thread
Undefined, this is a urology forum and we cannot assist you with the manifestation of Mondor's affecting your whole body. If it were Mondor's of the penis (or genital area) there might be something to say, but Mondor's in general is not a urologic condition. I'm sorry there is no information in this particular Exchange here for you.View Thread
This situation sounds very complex and is not likely to be resolved on WebMD as a result. It's unfortunate that you have not been able to stick with a good internist who can manage the care from various specialists and make a comprehensive assessment of all the different information coming in. The problem with seeing a specialist is that they look for causes within their specialty, which is why having a primary care doctor managing the extension of investigation with various specialists is a critical component of resolving a complex issue like you are reporting.
While there may be a urologic component, or at least symptoms, as you discovered the root cause may be somewhere else entirely.
You have repeatedly mentioned "results were negative" but did not establish what was being looked for. There are many different things that can be evaluated with tests like DRE and colonoscopy, so it is not obvious what "negative" means when we don't know what they were looking to find in the first place.
IBS is a syndrome, which means it is not a disease but rather a combination of symptoms. As with most syndromes, there is no single solution or cause, and it will take some dedicated pursuit to isolate the contributing factor(s) as well as the treatment approach(es) that will work for your individual circumstances.
I'm not being dismissive, only establishing why this issue can't be resolved sufficiently here. I encourage you to persist with your efforts to resolve all symptoms, and particularly to establish a relationship with an internist who can manage all the information flowing in from various specialists who contribute to your care.View Thread
A cystoscopy is a traumatic procedure, even though common, and any trauma in the genital area can lead to erectile issues, as well as other kinds of complications, such as the blood you experienced.
It sounds as though you may be seeking some sympathy with your initial question of logic, however the answers to your last question are not going to be found on WebMD. If you believe your doctor is guilty of malpractice, that is a legal issue.
The answer to your middle question is that yes, many people experience ED issues after a variety of urologic procedures. The same as in any other surgical practice the balance is between whether the risks of procedure outweigh the risks of not doing so. As an example, many men after prostate surgery will never be able to have unassisted sexual intercourse again. Usually the risk of death outweighs the risk of lack of sex.
Only your original urologist can explain their choices, and you should not avoid this doctor, rather have a frank conversation about the outcome and discuss your options in remedying the situation. This can be by telephone.View Thread
Any blood in your urine is a significant warning your body is giving you that something is quite wrong. Under no circumstances is it ever normal. You need to speak to a doctor about this, even though you've already been tested for a UTI.
Testing you for a latex allergy is easy, as is using polyurethane condoms instead of latex.
You should always be using condoms. The bleeding may be from some structural issue where you're being injured during sex. With a condom your boyfriend may feel safer to have intercourse and be more aggressive with thrusting, and this could be causing some injury.
Regardless, it is a topic that needs thorough investigation with your GYN or urologist.View Thread
