My boyfriend has a problem with severe pain in his prostate. The pain is localized to the place between his penis and rectum. Sometimes it feels sharp and stabbing, other times it feels like a tightness, suggesting swelling/inflammation. Sometimes it feels 'tired pain' or a deep ache. It doesn't hurt in his testicles.
He had a CAT scan and it turned up nothing. He has had some blood work, and it turned up nothing related, except the doctor said that there were some slight things that are present with hepatitis, but he doesn't believe my friend has hepatitis and felt it was unrelated to his prostate issue.
He is 27 years old, not sexually active. He is a normal weight, does not do drugs or drink or smoke. He has had this pain for months. He thought it was kidney pain or kidney stones at first, because he's had a kidney stone before. But apparently it isn't. He doesn't have pain ejaculating nor does he have issues ejaculating. The doctor said it is probably 'muscle pain' and that he's strained something in there, 'overworked' a muscle, but there is no way that can be possible with the history of it. He does not do anything that would strain any of those muscles. The doctor doesn't listen to him when he goes in, sadly.
It comes and goes, some times it's not there at all, other times it's so severe that he can do nothing but go to bed.
He was given a diagnosis of Prostatitis but that was before the CAT scan, the doctor hasn't confirmed it, just said nothing. He was on antibiotics and they did nothing. The doctor discontinued them after 3 weeks. I think if it was Prostatitis the antibiotics would have helped. His painkillers do nothing as well. He was given Oxycontin and it didn't do a thing to alleviate the pain. He was given naproxin instead but it also does nothing.
The medical bills are drowning him in debt, and I hate seeing him suffer. I would love to get our love life back on track, too. It's been on hold until we fix this. There is absolutely no chance of an STI's, unless it's been contracted from a toilet seat (ie nil). Nothing in his family history as well.
Does anyone have any ideas of what it might be, or have you have a similar problem, and can share what helped you? Thank you
