Began as dull ache in perenium that would come and go. As time progressed the area began to tingle and I would get shooting pains in the groin area (between prostate and lower back area) once a week or so. Then i began to feel tingling in my left foot and left hamstring. Now the tingling has gone into both feet (and I have lower back pain and some lower abdominal pressure-not sure if its related). The symtoms have lasted for the past year.
I do lift weights 4 times per week and have occasional mountain biking outings. I am a 24 year old male.
I have been tested for the following:
General Medicine- STD testing, general bloodwork, MRI on lumbar, thoracic, and cervical spine, ultrasound on testicles, took 3 weeks of antibiotics.
Urologist - prostate exam (not fun), prostate specific bloodwork
Orthopedic - everything fine with reactions - referred to physical therapy and neurologist
Physical Therapy - some stretches would flush out the tingling for a few minutes only to return soon after.
Neurologist - ran emg of lower extremity, nerve specific bloodwork, tested for multiple sclerosis
Why have none of these people recommended an ultrasound of my perenium where the pain is most? My neurologist said that CT wouldn't show much more than ultrasound and would give me unneeded radiation exposure.
All of these tests came back with nothing wrong!!! It is very frustrating not to know what is wrong with me as I am afraid that it is something serious (cancer or disease). Would cancer hints come out in bloodwork?
I did some research and here are my initial thoughts on what it might be. Bacterial infection and I didn't take antibiotics long enough, Sciatica, pinched nerve, or maybe a tumor causing nerve pressure. I am just really freaked out and would appreciate any advice.
Thanks for any responses and for reading.
