Chronic Pelvic Discomfort

I have had chronic pelvic pain/discomfort on and off since 2006. I am currently 25 and have had it since 22. It all started with these mini tingling spasms in my testes. My urologist diagnosed me with prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate). I was given antibiotics and has only suppressed the symptoms, only return shortly thereafter.

My main symptoms are as follows:

1. Nerve-like tingling sensations in the testicles. Feels like someone is taking a tazer-gun setting it on "light" and tazzing me with it periodically throughout the day. The sensation will last anywhere from 2-12 seconds. It is not particularly painful but quite discomforting to keep feeling it repeatably.

2. This one is a little tough to describe because it is rather a subtle feeling but it feels like a "queezy" tightness feeling in the groin area. Like my groin is sick. It will last for several seconds and then go away.

3. Pulsating in the groin area. It feels like a fast pulsation, almost like a throbbing in the general pelvic area. This symptom is not as bad as the other two, but sometimes find it to be quite odd nonetheless.

Although these are my "typical" symptoms, I have had a wide range of others, including a golf ball in the rectum feeling, vasocongestion (blue-balls) feeling and an extreme tightness (full bladder feeling) in the groin area. Those have subsided. Which is good news.

I've gone through extensive tests via well known urologists and other than some hydroseale in testes (very common for men anyway) everything checks out normal, including the prostate itself. I do not have urination, ejaculation or bowel problems of any kind, so I am guessing it is not a endocrine/urological issue but rather a pelvic floor issue.

If anyone here has these symptoms, please share your story and hopefully we can both benefit from each other. I am not looking for an instant cure, simply because it does not exist, but I am looking for other like-minded individuals who have this problem and what they have done to mitigate/resolve it.

Thanks
