About 18 moths ago I started having pain in my testicles. It started slowly and was first noticed during sex. Over the next 2 weeks it got worse and worse - starting on the right side and then moving to the left. I went to the er, got at clean bill of health and was told to go see a urologist. Since that time, I have seen 5 doctors and have had a variety of other symptoms - perineal discomfort and tension in the lower abdomen. Ive done the whole spectrum - antibiotics, Flomax, Prozac, Uroxatrol, Lyrica and surgery to remove a small cyst. After all of this, the pain is very much localized in the right testicle (deep and dull/yet sharp if touched - I can literally put my finger on the spot and see stars), constant and varies from 3 to 10 on a pain scale depending on the day. I've had no other urological or sexual symptoms. I'm getting by on 3 Vicodin a dayand several bags of ice. Neither fix the issue but distract me from it. The pain in ruining my life and I'm starting to think it is coming from somewhere else. I just don't know where to go for help anymore. I've heard it all - epididymitis (so we took out half of it - the rest looked fine according to my surgeon/ as did the testicle), prostatitis (except I dont have any other symptoms), depression (I'm depressed because I'm in pain, I'm not in pain because I'm depressed - plus I'm on Prozac still...). Anyone have suggestions on where to seek out help? I've been to some of the best in the DC area to no avail.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
