Hi. I'm a 26 yr old male. In January I had a throat infection (sore). Never knew what it was, just treated it with peniciline and it went away after 3 days. Right after that, I started to experience lower abdominal and back pains. I went to the doctor and she said i "might" have a urinary tract infection so she gave me "Pirifur". But the feeling was still there. After 2 weeks I started to experience testicular pain, added to the other symptons. It's the kind of feeling u get after u get kicked in the nuts (on both testes). It comes and goes.
I switched doctors and I had all kind of tests. Chlamidya, mycoplasm, herpes, VDRL, urine tests, hepatitis, VIH, sperm tests, Doppler US, etc.
They all came negative. The only thing that they detected was a 3 mm. cyst on my right testicle, but the doctor said that this was nothing to worry about and also, that this couldn't be the explination, because both testicles are aching, and the cyst was only found on the right one.
I've been treated with antibiotics & antinflamatories ever since and nothing is working !!! The pain in both testicles and on my back still there, AND I CAN NOT GET A DIAGNOSIS. The doctor said that the cause "might" be the throat infection I had 3 months ago. That sometimes it happens that the infection "goes" someplace else, and in this case, it went into my testes and it is still there. I've been taking even more antinflamatories, but they don't do nothing !
I need some advice, this problem is eating me alive and I'm desesperate because nobody can tell me what's wrong with me.
Hope you can help me !
Thanks in advance

  • The sore throat could just be a coincidencen or a reaction to what is ailing you. I would switch doctors. Why do you have a cyst? Makes sense, they are side by side, they may both hurt. Maybe another doctor could give you more insight. Do you want to live like that forever? It was smart to get checked for diseases. I hope that it will make you think before you act. Don't panic. Find a doctor who will listen. Best wishes.Hi. I'm a 26 yr old male. In January I had a throat infection (sore). Never knew what it was, just treated it with peniciline and it went away after 3 days.

  • Hi this is just a shot in the dark, however your pain might be caused by epileptic attacks. See if you can get some targeted tests done. Best of luck.
