I am 25 years old and until this past 8months or so my life was great.I started boxing training last june ( as a hobbie white collar boxing) training was going great until i used a neck brace attached weights to it, i believe i lifted it wrong using more of my lower back than my neck ( stupid i know) a few days later agony in my lower back which spread up to the right middle half way up my back.The pain didnt go about a month after that i went to a physio in september my debut fight was coming up at the end of september and i wanted my back sorted.He did some manipulation on me and 1 which was odd to me i was on my back he spread my legs put his hands on each knee and told me to squeezae agaisnt him i did he then jerked his hands which caused a clunk and i felt a click in my pubic bone/joint area, he said thats normal and showed it was out of position??? anyways there was no pain there but i started having erection problems ( first time ever in my life) but i won my fight sept 25th and carried on my back was a bit better but got worse again back to physio blah blah blah then the start of my living NIGHTMARE about october 20 th i woke up with servere pain just above my penis in that pubic bone/joint area so bad i could not get an erection with my girlfriend, i went to the docs asap he gave me strong anti inflammatories, i went the physios he told me my pelvis has prob just been irratated at the front thus the pain inflamation etc.I wa told to rest for a week and pop them pills, the pain settled down which brought my erections back. But only for a week i started training then that horrible pain came back with a vengence above my penis area and erection problems with it. i quit boxing thinking it was some sort of sports injurie like ligaments above my penis or something, by december with rest it had got worse i stopped going physio cause my back or this problem was not getting better. The physio was convinced this problem at the front was due to my lower back right problem causing the pelvis to tilt thus friction at the front etc. Anyways it went worse to the point i was having mad attacks of pain at night above my penis like something was eating me from the inside truley horrific pain which was like no other just above my penis.I went private the orthopedic doctor seemed convinced it was my pubic joint he put me through for an mri scan of the pelvis which was fine!!!!! he refered me to a urologist ( cause of the erection problems difficulty urinating etc) Then in january the pain continued to destroy me the Urologist checked my prostrate plus blood test urine test all fine.Slowly the pain eased of just above my penis and my erections are ok again now still not like i was pre nightmare , but the pain is now constant in my lower back right which is worse sitting down constant pain in my right groin area right **m cheek, and still leading up to my penis. this pain is constant and sometimes so bad i have contenplated suicide! its effected my sex drive i have no libido cause of the pain and discomfort in the penis area and my lower back is killing me plus all the other areas of refered pain.I am waiting on results of an mri scan of my lower back! could all this horrific pain at the front be coming from my back like nerves running into the pelvis??? im so depressed and in constant pain all day everyday.
