My husband has these prostate flares that come out of nowhere and cause him tremendous pain. The can last several hours and he has to double over. Any ideas?

In brief: PELVIC PAIN=GET SEEN
Recurrent, severe pelvic pain may be a sign of kidney stone disease or other diagnoses (e.
g. Tenesmus=rectal spasms). You should get seen for work-up which may include urinalysis, lab tests and possible scans. A urology consult may help sort out the diagnosis. He may also need a colonoscopy by G.I. Doctor (to exclude colitis). Hope he is better soon!
