Hi Doctor,

I am a 25 year old male. I was diagnosed with epididymitis when I was about 10 years old. Since I can remember I have had a chronic mild testicular pain ever since. When I was in highschool my physcian had me do a testicular ultrasound and to consult a urologist; the results were all unremarkable. I have not seen a doctor about this condition for the past few years, but it is always sort of lingering around. I have noticed that it feels like there is a nerve connecting from the right testicle, to the inner ball of my right foot as well, and the mild chronic pain from my right testicle seems to be extending through a nerve down to my right foot. Is that even possible?

The "pain" in both instances are very mild and I am still able to do all physcial activity and sports. I am in a long term relationship and have sexual intercourse approximately once every week or so. I am in good health and have recently had a physcial. Any idea or insights to this condition? It is not severe enough for me to actively seek a physcian, however it is still lingering in the background and always slightly bothersome. Please advise.
