Continued pain: Prostatitis can either be acute (fast onset) or chronic (lasting for weeks/months/years). It is a painful condition that can lead to chronic pelvic pain. It is best to treat acute prostatitis with at least a 3-4 week course of appropriate antibiotics to avoid developing chronic pain.

See Urologist: No sequelae. Watch diet and fluids. Avoid caffeine, alcohol, colas, fruit drinks and drink plenty of water. Prostatitis has many causes and should be treated by a urologist to rule out any serious urological problems.

Please get an exam: From your doc to make sure that's what you have. He/she can then treat you. True prosatatis is an infectection/inflammation of the prostate, different from enlarged prostate that older men get so over the counter saw palmetto is not likely to help. Careful of prostate massage because it may spread the infection, if there. Peace and good health.

It depends: It depends what your symptoms are.What is it that makes you think prostatitis. I don't think you have ACUTE prostatitis because you would be sick with a high fever. Chronic prostatitis is anothet entity. See your doctor if you have symptoms.
