This is strange... Well, at least I think it is.

Hmmmm.... where to begin? Well, about two-three months ago (It could have been more, could have been less, I have a terrible memory) I woke up in the middle of the night feeling pain/pressure in my lower abdomen. The best way I can describe it is if you were to drink a liter of water right before you went to bed, then woke up in the middle of the night having to go to the bathroom. That's what I felt, except I didn't have to go to the bathroom. I ended up laying in bed for about a half hour waiting for the pressure to subside. Finally, it did and I fell back asleep.

More recently, last night as a matter of fact, I was sitting on the couch watching Scrubs when I got up to get a drink... I felt like I had to go to the bathroom while I was getting some water, not badly but I figured I was up, so I might as well. I tried to go pee, but couldn't. At that point, I realized what was happening. As I went back to the couch, I felt the pain/pressure again, except this time it was much worse... like nothing I've ever felt in my life to be honest. After an hour and a half, it finally went away. I stood up and went to itch my leg, when I felt something... Much to my suprise, my left testicle bigger than usual (at least, I think it was... I've never really paid that much attention to the size of my testicles... I suppose I should though). Not only was it bigger, but it was (and I'm not kidding) perpendicular to my right testicle. After... in lack of a better term... adjusting my self, the swelling went down after about an hour to what I assume is it's normal size.

I'm stumped. I've had a run of bad luck in the medical department my whole life. A few things you should know: I assume you know I'm a male, I'm only 16 years old, and I don't exercise much... don't get me wrong, I'm not overweight. I eat healthy (mostly fruits and vegetables), I just don't get out much. I have a few guesses as to what it might be, but being that I'm not a doctor, my guesses don't mean much. So until I can get in to see my doctor, I'm curious as to what you guys think. My only worry is that in another 2 or 3 months, this'll happen again...
