about 8 months ago i started getting pain in my central lower back, pretty low down there, about 3 or 4 inches above the buttocks. i suppose i contribute some of this to getting regularly trashed in my college dormitory, and consuming lots of caffeine. but really, nothing extremely out of ordinary for your typical college student. this condition is doubly annoying because it comes and goes (usually is worse at night). it will often hurt even more after i ejaculate or take a piss. sometimes the pain occurs in the bladder, i will feel an unpleasant spasm in my groin, or a mild burning sensation felt in my ***k. and sometimes i will randomly have to start peeing every 10 minutes despite modest fluid intake.
towards the end of the fall semester, one day it started hurting so bad i thought i was having another kidney stone, so i had a friend take me to the ER. they x-rayed me and didn't find ****, just attributed to this odd disorder whose name now escapes me. I went to see my GP and then a urologist a few months ago. i had my lower back MRId, and my urine tested for blood, cultures, and other anomalies. nothing. suspecting prostatitis, they tried me on the antibiotic/cipro treatment. didn't work. i was then told to cut out all fluids other than water. i followed this zealously for a few weeks along with daily prostate medicine. it would seem to get better for a few days, and then always remanifest itself. i tried the odd cup of coffee and/or alcoholic beverage recently, and as expected, came with unpleasant consequences.
does anybody have a suggestion or 2 cents that could contribute towards my recovery? i do not want to go on living like this.
