Cipro is not going to cause tendon rupture. It's one of the most common (but very strong) antibiotics in current use. It is likely to cause stomach or intestinal distress with prolonged usage. And you cannot stop taking it in the middle of a cycle. After you finish a cycle, you will need to take a probiotic for a month to restore your immune system in your gut, as the Cipro will devastate it.
Bacterial prostatitis is treated most commonly with Cipro. Even so, it is very difficult to treat with antibiotics because there is very little blood flow in the prostate, and it can take several weeks or months of treatment to clear a bacterial prostatitis infection.
This may or may not be what you have.
Is your doctor a urologist? If he had to consult his colleagues, it suggests he may not be, in which case seeing him for this issue is probably a waste of time.
There are numerous things that could be going on, but it's going to take a urologist to narrow down the possibilities and figure out what's actually going on.
It is possible that you have an unintentional injury from the intense exercise regimen and that is triggering some pelvic floor dysfunction symptoms. It could be something else.
It's completely normal to have no libido when you have any genital pain. Your body shuts off your reproductive functions when it feels the environment is unsafe for an infant. Injured or ill parent would be one of those unsafe situations.
You should never be attempting to conceive while you are ill, not a minor cold, not fatigued, not overly stressed, not in pain. These things affect the constitution of your future child. If you have been taking Cipro, you will likely be infertile for about 3 months after you stop taking the antibiotic. Sperm cells are germ cells and antibiotics kill them.
Aside from plans to have another child, have there been any significant life events three months ago? (job issues, move house, funeral, etc.)
One of the most common triggers for urinary symptoms (urgency and frequency) is stress or anxiety. Then when you get anxious about the symptoms, this makes the situation worse, and it can sometimes be self-perpetuating.
Please describe the penis pain more fully. Is it sharp, dull, firey, something else? What parts are involved? Are there things that make it worse/better? Do you have any other areas on your body that are also hypersensitive to touch like underarms, inside of elbows, etc.? Where are these wrinkles you mentioned?
If you had bacterial prostatitis, one week of treatment would NOT be enough. At the end of three weeks you might notice minor improvement, and it make take several months of treatment if this is the problem. It's not the first thing that would come to my mind, although it is one of the possible causes.
Because of the sudden onset, it seems more likely event driven. A more specific description of the pain will be useful in narrowing down the possibilities.
Don't stop taking the Cipro until you finish what your doctor prescribed, as much as it's a very harsh drug to take.View Thread
I'm not a dermatologist or urologist. You need to ask your doctor for something that is safe to use in that area. Most alternates are by prescription only, like silver or sulphur creams, or specialized medicated ointments.View Thread
Frothy urine is most likely protein, which is an indication that one of maybe a dozen things is wrong.
The reason you may have post-void dribbling is usually because of improper urination technique. To stop urine flow, you should not clench your muscles. Instead you should gently bear down, like you are trying to pass gas or pass a bowel movement. When you stop the urine flow the wrong way, you are pulling back some fluid that then drips out afterwards. Also, if you have any clothing obstruction pressing on your penis, this can also trap urine. When you urinate you should have no clothing restriction whatsoever. It may take several days of urinating the correct way to stop the dribbling.
I don't know what/how you're splashing. Are you saying that you walk over to the sink from the toilet and splash water on your penis after using the toilet? A wet penis is a bacteria factory. Don't do that.View Thread
Thrush is a candida (yeast) infection in your mouth. It will not combat a yeast infection on your genitals.
A cystoscope may or may not notice something with your prostate depending on what it is. As an example, BPH, yes it should see the restricted urethra, but prostate stones, no chance of it detecting.
Froth is not likely semen. Froth is typically protein (which doesn't belong there). A urinalysis would determine if there were a chemical imbalance and lead to further investigation. Simply having a fever related to your stomach bug can also cause this.
This is not a clear case for nerve blockers. When you see physical irritation (redness), there is a physical reason, not a neurological reason.
Back flare-ups (I assume you mean pain) are more characteristic of gallstones. But the other symptoms you describe with your penis do not have a relationship to gall bladder issues.
You've combined so many symptoms it is nearly impossible to make a determination of what's going on. Every time you report more information, and it totally confuses the issue. The person you need to be spending time with is your urologist, and if they're dismissive and assigning you nerve blockers, you need a new urologist. Physical symptoms you are reporting are most likely a physical cause.View Thread
There are more than half a dozen reasons for this type of sensation. I would recommend you take a look at several other posts asking the same question. If you cannot find a suggestion that applies to you, please add detail about the sensation with regard to how it feels when you do urinate or if there are any situations where it feels better or worse.View Thread
It's probably the connection you've guessed is associated, anxiety.
Anxiety is the number one cause of urinary symptoms, which can include urgency, frequency, and even bladder control. And it's possible you may have just been so exhausted that your body did not wake to respond to the signals your brain was sending indicating you needed to use the bathroom.
Hopefully it will be a one-time occurrence. It would be easy to say "reduce your stress" but it sounds like that's not a realistic option. So managing your adaptive response to stress may be the next best option. That, and making sure to go before you go to sleep.
I know you may not think drinking more fluids is a good idea, but don't deprive yourself and become dehydrated either.
You may find some relief in the stress around intimacy if your wife, regardless of her personal interest level in sex, can help you out with yours. It may also be worth a discussion to find out what about sexual contact isn't interesting to her. There's likely a root element to her feelings, whether discomfort, energy level, sensitivity to smells, or something else. Sex does not mean intercourse. You can still be affectionate.View Thread
Men don't get interstitial cystitis (extremely, extremely rare).
Parasites from seafood, particularly shellfish like fried clams, can lead to strange sensations like a sharp pinch at the tip of your penis, but this parasite also usually generates an oversensitivity to touch in your crotch, elbow joint, underarms, and back of knees, itching or prickly feeling. It is not a radiating pain, nor does it induce spasms. Parasites do not go away on their own.
Magatame's symptoms are not typical of common seafood parasites. If not an infection, they sound more like early kidney stone formation where the grit is causing chronic irritation.View Thread
