When the Sun Goes Down: Aggravating Symptoms of Prostatitis at Night

Prostatitis patients are often accompanied by hidden pain in the lower abdomen, groin, penis, scrotum, perianal area, and lower back, which is obvious or worsened during urination and can manifest as paroxysmal and convulsive pain. Some patients have found that symptoms of prostatitis worsen at night and even affect sleep quality.


So why are the symptoms of prostatitis more severe at night?

The causes that worsen prostatitis at night include lack of concentration, vagus nerve stimulation, prolonged sitting, and less exercise.

1. Lack of concentration. The stimulation from the surrounding environment at night is relatively less stimulation from the surrounding environment at night, making it difficult for people's attention to be occupied by other things in work and life. Then, more energy will be focused on the symptoms of difficulty urinating, poor urination, and pelvic pressure caused by prostatitis, thus worsening the symptoms of prostatitis at night.

2. Vagus nerve stimulation dominates during sleep at night, resulting in a stronger perception of pain.

3. Prolonged sitting and less exercise at night may be related to the apparent symptoms of prostatitis at night.

When nighttime prostatitis worsens, how should it be alleviated?

When the symptoms of prostatitis worsen, patients can choose oral medication or physical therapy for alleviation.

1. Medication

Take antibiotics. Antibiotic treatment is the most common treatment for prostatitis. Antibiotic drugs diffuse from plasma to prostatic fluid, thus inhibiting related bacteria.

Due to the difficulty in achieving effective concentrations of antibiotics in the prostate during systemic use, which affects the efficacy, a treatment method of directly injecting antibiotics into the prostate has emerged. 

The main advantage of this treatment method is that the drug is directly injected into the prostate, which is easy to spread and reaches an effective antibacterial concentration, thus killing bacteria at the injection site and eliminating bacteria in surrounding tissues. Areas that absorb the drugs can coordinate eliminating infections in parts such as the urethra.

Herbal medicine therapy. Tablets and medications made from some traditional Chinese herbs, such as Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory pill, can have bactericidal, anti-inflammatory, detumescence, blood circulation, and stasis-promoting effects and are effective in the treatment of prostatitis without developing drug resistance or resistance.

2. Physical therapy

Physical therapy is a therapeutic measure that utilizes various biological factors such as sound, light, electricity, heat, and water to regulate internal factors in the body and restore normal physiological states. Physical therapy mainly utilizes the heat generated to cause deep tissue congestion, improve blood circulation, strengthen local tissue nutrition, and accelerate the absorption and clearance of inflammatory products, thus facilitating the dissipation of inflammation.

Common physical therapies include warm water sitz baths, ultrasound therapy, short wave therapy, ultra-short wave therapy, microwave therapy, direct current drug ion therapy, magnet therapy, comprehensive green therapy, etc.
