Customer Question

Morning Dr Phil had a great evening out last night.
But oh yea here we go again
For 18 years I've been suffering on and off with a mild pain base of penis.
The last time it goes in cycles of a year on three years off then again the last time was May.
This time I had 3 urine tests all clear a full blood count all clear a bladder scan all clear a U.S. scan of testifies and whole pelvic area all clear I'm guessing cronic pelvic pain syndrome ?
Due to anxiety !!!

Hello from JustAnswer.

Chronic pain in this area with a negative evaluation typically is due to either spasm of the muscles at the base of the penis or irritation of the nerves that lead to this area. It is also common for these types of pain to manifest in people with anxiety or depression.

If I can provide any further information, please let me know.

Thanks dr love
My p s a. Was also normal low ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have mild frequency of urination during these times but it's nirmal Sometimes after antibiotics I get it
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
The PSA is perfect. Frequent urination frequently occurs with this. Since the evaluation has been normal, that is not worrisome.

The scans stc bloods and the fact that it's been on and off for many years. Usually lasts a month or so then goes for a years or two. Means I can enjoy my day and forget it
Also would not be connected to the wbc?
Hers a thing there was an article given to me by my doc which said people over 45 years lived longer in the 3.5 to 4.9 range !!!
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 2 years ago.
Yes, you can forget it, s the extensive evaluation indicates that it is not a serious problem. It is unrelated to the WBC.

Can I ask you another question and add a bonus ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Well Dr love sorted my other issue out was anxiety as you'd exoect lol. I simply have a pain just above the penis it has been off and in for 18 years. Bladder scan normal in July us scan fine bloods fine psa low normal urine perfect at lab.
So he said cronic pelvic pain syndrome. Stress anxiety related. ?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
yes, you can Mark.
let's continue here as you paid Dr Love for his time.
do you have symptoms with urination?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No. Just a little more frequent. That's all
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
I would look into something called interstitial cystitis
It is like a pelvic floor/bladder spasm Mark
It is treated with amitryptiline or elmiron
both work well.
It is hard to diagnose but absolutely associated with anxiety/stress. Knowing you as well as I do now, I would say it is a likely diagnosis
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
But not serious. Cancer ???? I can relax
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
No, absolutely not
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 2 years ago.
