My Husband is 25, and having severe lower back pain, and testicle swelling. now developing hip and leg pain. Don't know if it's a pinched nerve or what.
We have been to many docs. One tells us its arthritis, the next tells us that he has been to ******n his body. All the blood tests have came back and are fine, He recently han a EMG test, and nothing wrong there, the doctors say he's as health as a horse. We have been to neuroligist, urologist, and a reumatoid specialist. Our family physcial has just told us he's a medical mystery and that was that. So we are no further ahead, just frustrated.

  • drinking alot of grape juice will help the swelling of the testicles. As far as the pains it sounds like a pinched nerve. I would see a nerve specialist or go to an acupuncturist--- they can help relieve any nerves that may be pinched and relieve the pain.

  • Keep after the doctors. Did they do a MRI of lower back? The swelling wouldn't be caused by nerve but could be a several other causes. Normally swelling is caused by a circulation problem. A herniated disc could cause that type of pressure and pain. Also would suggest a GAD titer test for auto immune condition which is known to start with severe low back and leg pain.
