I am 32 years old, 5'-10' weigh 240 lbs. For the last 10 or 12 years I've been experiencing pain in 3 main areas of my body. Left upper quadrant, left heel, left testicle. The LUQ pain is the most persistant, typically never goes away completely but is very tolerable. The left heal pain is quite severe and comes and goes about once or twice a year and is usually treated with NSAIDS. The pain is just to the outside of the achilles tendon/heal bone connection. I've had several x-rays to no avail. The testicular pain happens about every 2-3 years. Pain is typically diagnosed as epiditymitis and is treated with antibiotics. I've never considered the possibility that these pains were connected in any way until recently. I had the testicular pain flair up and was being treated for that. In the mean time I noticed that I had absolutely no symptoms of the LUQ pain. I set that aside as coincidence. Then after a few days the testicular pain subsided and the LUQ pain came back full force, it was worse than ever for a few days. Then the pain in my heel started which was tolerable but I was noticabley limping. I noticed as the heel pain was getting worse that the LUQ pain and the testicular pain were mild to unnoticeable. Could these be related in any way? Has anyone had any experiences like this or have any advice or comments? Thanks.
