I have an appointment soon (24 hours, actually) but i'm stressing out now, hopefully needlessly.

The problem is, i'm a big of a hypochondriac, AND i tend to stress, a lot, so i might have gotten myself a little worked up, i'll lay it out and see if anyone has any ideas, or has seen or heard of anything similar to maybe put my mind at ease a little - or, stress me further, who knows.

I'm 22, male, and in semi-decent health - overweight, and a less-than-active lifestyle working 10 hours a day at a desk. The last 3-5 days i've had a variety of symptoms from lower abdominal pain, a mild, dull throbbing prostate pain (behind the perineum) to burning during urination. AFTER urination, for at least a few minutes, there is a sharp discomfort or pain and almost a pressure. Combined with this is the fast that, for the last three or so days, i've had a pain on the left side of the shaft of my penis. Extending almost from the base to just behind the glands. This really, really concerns me for obviously many reasons.

I've had a UTI before, almost two years ago now i think, and during the same time i had severe testicular pain. I had all that checked out (with various ultrasounds, etc) and cleared up the urinary tract infection - though the pain remains in varying intensity, it is not as bad as it was.

Anyway, i suppose obviously the placement, and the fact its hard to connect it to an infection makes the penile pain particually worrying, both worried that they will find something seriously wrong, or that they won't find anything and i'll be stuck with it (as with the testicular pain) its quite painful and its hard enough with one pain, as you would understand.

So, in the end, i'm not sure what i'm more worried about, finding something horrible, or finding nothing and living with the pain, its all pretty extreme i know, and with so little time i doubt i'll get a response, but as i am alone in this, i admit to freaking out.
