Hi, I was surprised there was no prostatitis thread, so I thought I would start one, especially given the link between XMRV and the prostate. I had prostatitis (or Chronic Pelvic Pain Syndrome as we call it in the UK I believe) in the years before I came down with CFS, and have always wondered if there was a connection. it always cleared up with antibiotics, but became increasingly frequent in the time before I became ill with CFS (during a period of great stress). I have heard that PWC's are more likely to have prostatitis, so does that mean prostatitis could be used as an early-warning signal for those susceptable to CFS. I'd be interested to hear if any others have prostatitis and when they had it (before or after CFS). Thanks, Cig p.s. I find quercetin helps with the pain.
