Prostatitis Symptoms Come and Go, What Causes Prostatitis Flare Ups

Date:2018-02-11 click:

With acute prostatitis, symptoms are severe, come on suddenly, and include fever and chills. Signs of chronic prostatitis may be milder and come on suddenly or gradually over weeks or months, and the symptoms tend to come and go in episodes or 'flare-ups'. For example, some men find they have a period of a few weeks or months each year when their symptoms flare up.
What brings on a flare-up?

1. Feeling stressed or anxious can cause physical symptoms, leading to a flare-up or making symptoms worse. It’s important to look after yourself and find things that help you to manage your stress levels and feel more in control. 
2. Some men find certain foods and drinks can bring on a flare-up or make symptoms worse too. For example alcohol, fizzy drinks and drinks containing caffeine, such as tea and coffee – as these can irritate the bladder. Citrus fruits, such as oranges, and spicy foods could have an effect as well.
3. Other factors can induce the relapse of prostatitis , such as unhealthy living habits, improper use of medicine, antibiotic-resistance etc.
How do flare-ups affect people?
1. Pain or discomfort can make it difficult to carry out everyday tasks. It can affect your concentration and make it difficult to get on with work, and it can affect your mood and how much sleep you get. 
2. Traveling long distances or sitting in meetings at work when you don’t know when you will be able to reach a toilet can be worrying, especially if you need to go frequently. And it could be uncomfortable to sit for long periods. 
Prostatitis is a common male condition. It can be caused by bacteria, but the most common form of prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), does not usually involve bacteria and is often caused by problems elsewhere in the body and outside of the prostate itself. If you have been suffering from recurring prostatitis symptoms, do not despair. There are many things you can do, and the best way to manage chronic prostatitis is with a multimodal whole-body approach that involves diet, stress management, lifestyle adaptations, and a number of natural and alternative treatments.
