Customer Question

Hi, I have been diagnosed with Prostatitus but I have also recently started to get random "tingling" sensations in the top of my left thigh and now my right thigh. I thought this might be related to running eg damaged muscles or perhaps a back injury I suffered about 8 weeks ago. is there anyway this could be related to my Prostate issues??

most often prostatitis does not cause any symptoms at all.

sometimes it causes symptoms of burning with urination or some penile discharge if the prostatitis is bad.

your prostatitis would not be causing your thigh tingling pains. this sounds like it is much more likely to be caused by your back injury and compression of nerves in your spine going to the thighs.

did your doctor give you antibiotics for your prostatitis?
