sitting on my ass...

Recommended Posts


I've just had a rather amazing (I'm easily impressed) thought, and I figured I'd throw it out there and see if anyone agrees that it sounds logical.

I work at a private school, and I work on my feet. From 5:30 am til about 1:00 pm, I'm on the move, constantly. I don't sit down. I also rarely get obs.

But... I'm also a writer, and sometimes spend virtually all day (like today) sitting on my ass, slaving over a hot keyboard. Invariably, when I do, the spot where I normally get obs starts to bother me, sometimes to the extent that I think I may be getting an ob. In fact, it's bugging me now. I'm not getting an ob, and once I'm up and about for a while, the sensation will go away, but it's uncomfortable.

Sooo... I was just wondering if having an office job, where you're pretty much confined to your desk, sitting on your duff day after day, might not be something that may encourage more frequent obs. I mean, how many people who get frequent obs have that sort of job, and could there be any relation between the two things?

I'd love to get some input on this. Anyone?

I think, you are right. And probably that is why every support website advise you to walk and get some exercise. I get the same thing. Whenever I sit by the computer my ass is feeling weird. I wish I could sit in the bucket full of ice. When I walk my dog, I am great and so is my ass.

I agree...

I sit all day at my job - been dealing with this damn OB since the first part of June. You may have a point....

      hello all, update... so the white ulcer inside started around january 4... and today it is still there... no burning while i pee, just a constant mild irritation feel, no other symptoms i went back to get retested 2/12 so 2.5 months after exposure... including HSV, HIV, gon, chlam, everything came back negative... the doctor thinks it's some form of chlamydia, he gave my doxy for 10 days is it too soon to tell if i have HSV? is it possible to have an ulcer inside the urethra and be fungal or bacterial?

      Probably not many.  I'm going to change my twitter symbol to the copper ribbon at least.

      okay! I guess I will just start at the basic dosage of vitamin C and go up every week little ? I take 1500 mg of super lysine like the bottle says and it still gives me gas and diarrhea. hoping it will pass if not I'll drop down to 2 a day! I really appreciate the advice! i know we would all.do ANYTNING to not have OB  at the moment idc about stigmas od boyfriends or dating or sex....I just care about FEELING healthy in my own skin. this is my one and only life

      That sounds like a good place to begin.  The lysine worked really well for me for about a year and a half.  Then things got steadily worse for me and nothing worked until vitamin C.  My immune system is not that great even tho i take care of myself, so u may have good luck if u have a decent one.  With the vitamin c, u must 1) take it at intervals throughout the day, not all at once 2) dont increase the amount u r taking too fast 3) it will give u gas at higher doses and even diarrhea if u go crazy with it. These r signs to lower your dose!  If u can just control your OB's with vitamin c and lysine or anything else, maybe a cure will finally become available.
