I've had a pain in my prostate area since early 2015

Hello, all.
I’ve had a pain in my prostate area since early 2015. When I press on the area between the testicles and anus, there is a lot of pressure there. Other than that, every time I move my hips in any way (to change positions in a chair, to bend over), I get a very bad pain in my back pelvic/buttocks area, like a sprain pain. The pain from the prostate is more on the right side, and it shoots down the right leg occasionally. Just for the record, this is nonstop pain (upon movement). It does not come and go. All it takes is movement.

Moreso, I’ve been to the ER 4-5 times, and the last 2 times, the doctors did a digital exam with a finger and once they pulled the finger out, I had a stabbing shooting knife pain in my prostate for about 30 seconds.

The pain also sometimes occurs on my frontal pelvic left side, but not as much as the back side right side in the buttocks/prostate region, where it hurts like a sprain sensation every time I move it.

Background information which may be relevant: I am 25, white male. Sedentary. I sometimes have prolonged sex, in which I retain erection for an hour before ejaculation, but I’m not sure if that would have an effect.
I also ejaculate 1-2 times a day.

I have NO urinary systems. I only pee 5 times a day, which is normal. And while sometimes it takes me a while to start peeing (10 seconds), that’s more psychological if anything.

This pain is affecting my life. I can’t sit, I can’t stand, I can’t do anything. The pain is so bad, and I’ve been to so many doctors, who’ve prescribed prostatitis medication and none of it works. I am afraid that by allowing this to persist, I may be welcoming cancer to start developing and sexual function to cease in due time. Please, I am asking what I should do.

Hi @TundeMagee,
I read your post a few days ago, and at the time didn’t know how to respond. Your situation has been on my mind since. Then today I ran across this incredible patient perspective in the British Medical Journal http://www.bmj.com/content/351/bmj.h5037

The author Nick Wood talks about living with chronic prostatitis or chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS), and the journey to find information, pain relief and most importantly an urologist who understood.

Is Nick’s experience similar to yours? Have you seen a urologist?
