Men have this too

by Seb

Men are clearly affected by this too. I have had two occasions of stress related issues but for me, infection is the wrong word, it's more an inflammation of my bladder or prostate - or both! And it is directly linked to stress. Prior to developing this I went through a lot of emotional stress and anxiety, on both occasions. I had tests and they found no infection. I believe there is a connection between our thoughts, fears and worries and an inflammation process in the pelvis. Perhaps people that suffer with this are unaware that they hold a lot of tension in the muscles of the pelvic floor and, as a result, can experience symptoms of a bladder infection (burning, pressure, tension, frequency of urination etc) It's just a theory that I have which makes sense to me. I could be wrong..
