Men Issues :: On And Off Dull Pain In Left Testis (10 Months)

Aug 27, 2012

I am 26 year old IT professional, I have been facing a dull ache/pain in my left testis while sitting for a long time or sometimes while riding a bike. when i try to touch it then it hurts but only sometimes, I feel good after taking bath. Also i feel pain mostly when the testes are in expanded state, the pain is there now for more than 10 months and its on and off Its really strange because some days I have little to no discomfort and other days I will get a dull ache and discomfort around my groin/left leg area.. 
I have shown it to 5 different urology doctors but they all say its an "infection" or "cysts" or "epididymitis",
I had doppler ultrasound Twice and both times doctor said its a cyst..and given me doxy-1 or niftran 100 mg or urifast etc
I had urine test twice, everything was normal
I had ultrasound of kidney KUB, its fine.
I had taken tests for cancer- Alfafetoproteina, HCG and one more i don't remember the name... Reports are normal.
I wear sports supporter sometimes when i feel that my testes are in expanded state for long and i feel pain.
I have taken so much of medicine now and have been diagnosed with everything that i feel frustrated and helpless. I wonder in 21st century we dont have the answer for these kind of problems, My tension increases when i search on net about my problem and find there are other men who have the same problem and they are not getting any certain answer about it.
If anybody of you have the same problem or went through similar situation then please let me know. Please share what you did or have been doing to prevent this?

Testicular Disorders :: Dull Ache In Left Testicle For 3-4 Months

I'm 26 years old and I've had a dull ache in my left testicle for the past 3-4 months. 

I've been to see my GP numerous times, and finally got referred to a urologist yesterday. I was there for a about 5 minutes, he had a quick feel and said nothing was wrong and didn't give me much assurance or guidance as to what I can do to help myself.

I've had a very small cyst on my left testicle since late 2008, and have been told that I have nothing to worry with that.

When I exercise I tend to aggravate the ache more so I haven't properly exercised in months which is very annoying for me.

I tend to notice the ache a lot more when I'm lying down, but it does go away after a while.

Men's Health :: Dull Pain In Left Testicle

Yesterday, I noticed that my left testicle felt sore or had a dull ache. Kinda the feeling after getting hit in the balls. I am 19 years old and not sexually active. It does not hurt to ejaculate or urinate. The pain feels like its in the epididymis on the left side and only there. There is a less intense, sharp pain when I touch and move that area. I just started icing it for a minute or two every so often but it feels like it got more sensitive.

Testicles :: Dull Pain In Left Side

I am 20 year old male. Not sexually active. OK for 4 hours now I have been experiencing a weird dull ache/pain/discomfort on the left side of my left testicle, and also slight discomfort in lower abdomen. The discomfort on the testicles is ONLY on the left side of my left testicle.

For the past hour I have been going crazy looking over all the possible problems that might be. However all these problems seem to have some kind of physical symptom. I checked my balls and I couldn't find anything wrong on the outside.

Men Issues :: Dull Ache Pain Above Left Testicle

I'm 18 And do lots of sports. 2 weeks ago I did a lunge in a game of football and soon after got a burning sensation in my left testicle that lasted for a maximum of 2 minutes and was not bad enough to warrant me going off the pitch. After this the pain subsided for a couple days. However over the past 4 days I have noticed a dull ache pain in the upper region of my left ball-sack (on the outer side). The testicle looks the same size and color and urine/semen is the same as usual.

Does anyone have any ideas? I have sorta ruled out testicular tension (or whatever the twisted testis is called) but only because it doesn't look enlarged or shrunk.

Undiagnosed Severe Left Flank Pain For Months - Kidney Related?

I have had severe left flank pain for 3 months now and still not been able to get a diagnosis. I am a 24 year old usually fit female.

The pain started towards the end of April while i was in work (an office desk job). It was on my left side in between my hip and ribs, spreading down to my groin. The pain got worse over the next couple of hours, and it has been a constant dull ache since then. The pain is most strong on the back of my left side but i can also feel it from the front.

I went to the doctors with this pain where i done blood and urine tests and got put on antibiotics for a suspected kidney infection, as well as codeine to ease the pain. The results came back with an apparent slight kidney abnormality showing, but a week later, i was still in a lot of pain and unable to move much, so i went back to the doctors where i got referred into hospital. I spent the night in hospital where i had more blood and urine tests, as well as an ultra sound. The hospital told me my results showed a UTI, but the ultrasound was clear, so i got put on another course of antibiotics and sent home. A week later, i was still in a lot of pain so i went back to the doctors where i was put on another (stronger) course of antibiotics for 2 weeks. The pain eased slightly above the groin, but the main pain on my left side was still the same.

My doctor then referred me to gastroenterology at the hospital where i had to wait weeks for an appointment, only to be told that he didn't think it was bowel or stomach related (as i can still eat and pass stools normally) and that i should have been referred to urology.

My doctor referred me to urology where the waiting list was 2 months, so i decided to get a private consultation with a urologist. The consultant done a urine test, which confirmed i had blood present in it. He went over my symptoms and suggested a CT scan in case i had a small kidney stone stuck which had been missed by the ultrasound. He was also concerned at my frequency as passing urine (this is usually over 20 times a day with anywhere between 3 to 8 times through the night). He referred me back to the NHS for the CT scan which i had a few weeks ago.

The CT scan results came back clear of kidney stones. My consultant now thinks the issue could be musculoskeletal but he still wants to see me to do some bladder studies as he is concerned about the frequency of urination. I have an appointment with my urology consultant for a few weeks time, but to see someone to investigate if the pain could be musculoskeletal there is a 3 month waiting list.

I am still in a lot of pain, both when moving and sitting (it never eases), and it is effecting my every day life. I can't go into the office to work due to the amount of pain i am in, i can't drive with it, and i haven't left the house the past few month apart from doctor or hospital visits. I am constantly feeling down and tired, and often get spells of dizziness and my eyes blacking out when i stand up (i am unsure if the tiredness and dizziness is related or not). I had a breakdown the other weekend where i cried for 2 days straight with the pain, the frustration of not being able to get a diagnosis, and not being able to do anything. I am worried that depression is kicking in with how long this has dragged on for.

I had no injury or knock to the area before the pain started. My mums side of the family also has a history of nephritis (kidney disease) with 4 of my aunt and uncles having it, but my urology consultant doesn't think there is a connection.

Is anyone able to provide any help or suggestions on what they think this pain could be as well as how to help ease it (the codeine doesn't help)? I feel like i have been passed around so many different people who still have no idea what is causing this pain.

Men Issues :: Dull Ache In Left Testicle

About two weeks ago I had a dull pain in my knee and I noticed it happened the day after a long walk, then about two days later my left testicle started to have a very dull pain. It's not bad where it stops me from going about my daily life, and I only feel it when I either sit or lay down. It is on and off, and I recently started stretching my inner thigh and pelvic area and recently it has been happening to both testicles. I'm not sure if the testicle pain is actually in pain because when I touch them I don't feel anything or it may be something muscle related because I had the knee issue first. I do feel either the epididymis or vas deferens I'm not sure which it is, but it's right above both testicles, the left one feels thicker than the right, and my left testicle is higher than the right although I'm not sure if it was always like that because only now I notice it. I do not have insurance and before I go see a urologist I would like to have a general idea what I am dealing with.

Fissure In Ano :: Years Of Dull Pain To Excruciating Pain?

I just want to know your experiences with the time it took from you felt a "dull" pain till it becomes large and really painful?

I have had a small tender firm swelling on the side of anus now for 4-5 days - which my physician says is "probably just a hemorrhoid". There is no change in colour and it's more a firm area than a nodule it seems. 

The pain isn't unbearable - painkillers do their job well so far.

I was thinking perhaps anal abscesses develop over 1-2 days rather than 4-5 days from onset of dull pain to excruciating pain?

Also, sorry for hijacking the fistula forum - there is none of anal abscess and most of you guys must have had it at some point.

Polymyalgia Rheumatica And GCA :: Dull Pain An Inch Above Eyes

I am presently on 7mg, and worry if GCA is starting: the dull pain I get is not at the sides of my eyes but about an inch above and slightly back. I do not have other indicators, such as jaw pain or sore head to touch, and am unsure whether all symptoms are likely to be present or only one. My GP seems to think I am OK- any advice as to whether the temple pain in GCA is by the sides of one's glasses or an inch or two above this?

Men Issues :: Dull Uncomfortable Ache/pain In Right Testicle

*Urgent* Dull uncomfortable ache/pain in Right Testicle (slightly higher than left and feels somewhat strained)

Pain is worse when exercise is induced, simultaneous pain in right testicle and right oblique/ab with exercise/twisting/lifting.

HELP! Long read, apologise in advance for spelling, grammatical errors.

Hi, my name is Aaron, I am a 19 year old male with a slightly higher/strained/retracted right testicle which is very very uncomfortable. It has affected my life physically, emotionally mentally and tested relationships with people in my life, it is a very frustrating injury which has gone on too long for a 19 year old. I got this injury in 2010 when i was just 15 years old. I have been playing competitive sports since i was around 8-9, soccer bust mostly basketball. I played for state teams in basketball at a high level for about 4 years and was very fit and active. I could run freely with no pain at all. In highschool in the first half of 2010 I started playing AFL which is footy but involves a lot of kicking (i wasn't used to all the kicking and overloading the right side of my body's muscles) i only played a for a few months while playing state basketball. This injury came out of n where after a basketball game when i got home. I took off my ankle guards and pants ready to have a shower but as i twisted my body slightly to take of the ankle guards i immediately experienced sharp pains simultaneously in my right oblique-abs and right testicle. At that time i felt the testicle rise up slightly giving me a very unpleasant feeling and sensation (numb/dull/dead) i experience to this day. I got it checked out thinking i had cancer being the young lad i was at the time. Dr said i had epididymitis on the right testicle and was given anti-inflammatory tablets for about 1-2 weeks. i had hot and cold bathes whilst taking the tablets thinking it was some sort of strain, thinking it would go away in a few days, boy was i wrong. its been over 4 years and i have seen over 10 specialists and doctors and it has definitely taken its toll on me, earlier this year 2014, i also saw another urologist who said everything seemed fine, there was no testicular torsion or kidney stone or hydrocele or anything wrong with the testicle anatomically and functionally. everything seemed okay, but it didn't make sense with the pain i am experiencing, it still felt numb, weird, and just uncomfortable as if its strained or something (hard to explain) i felt like a dickhead when he said i was fine, as if i was some liar.. it was basically another just another kick to the balls... over the 4 years i have had countless appointments with physios which only seemed to make the pain worse when i did their exercises. (this pain can be greater when exercise is induced) i physically can not run at all without the pain in my testicle and gut/oblique. but yea i have had many MRI's, xrays, ultrasounds and they didn't pick up much until this year when i went down to Sydney - Australia ( i live in townsville north queensland AUS) to see DR john Garvey who is a general diagnostic surgeon of the groin, best in his field.i saw him and got more scans down there and they picked up on a lot of musculoskeletal problems. i had a large tear in the conjoint tendon, 6 stitches were needed usually they put in 4, but the tear was that big, also i had deterioration in one of the tendons in my hip or something which was pain i started experiencing early this year. also something with the adductor and he took out the ilioinguinal nerve i believe. unfortunately my memory is foggy as i haven't got a copy of the report. but yea i was issued to get a quadruple groin reconstruction. so i got that and its been a few weeks now, maybe 4-5 weeks now, and i'm still experiencing the same testicle pain i have had all these years which is very depressing. so i don't really know what to do at all... i'm only 19 and i'm studying sport exercise science, trying to get into physiotherapy to learn about my injury but my knowledge is just too novice to treat something not even the best doctors in the world can't figure out.. the only time i experience any relief is massage on my back, glute, oblique abs, right adductor, hammies and hip flexor stretches, i have very tight muscles from all the sport and kicking for AFL. however this relief is close to nothing, the only time i experienced full relief where my testicle literally drooped back down to its original position and relaxed was around 2011 where i had acupuncture on the right side of my body, oblique psoas trigger point areas, it was like a breath of fresh air and i felt a million bucks, for some reason the acupuncture helped my uncomfortable pain but only lasted till the car ride home. where it then shot up again and went back to the uncomfortable position and since then i haven't experienced that relief. i still see that acupuncturist from time to time but i haven't had the same relief, i see him again this wednesday and hope to get ome needles in the oblique area which is tight. but yes these are all just theories, i think i have a tight deep muscle affecting a nerve (possibly one that innervates the scrotum /cremasteric muscle) that's why the needles worked cos they got deeper, i assume... but yes when i rub the inside of my right leg down to my knee my testicle retracts/jumps up and is just very sensitive as well. so yea thats about it, i cant do anything, its very frustrating and debilitating, was 85kgs at the time now i weigh 110kgs due to inactivity. but yea thank you for taking the time out to read this, i sound like a bit of a whinger/complainer but really i'm just a frustrated 19 year old who wants to play competitive sport again and fix this injury so i can focus on that and my career, but until then i'm going around in circles and its been very tough..

Heart :: Chest Pain, Left Shoulder Pain And Jaw Pain

I saw a cardiologist in september of last year and he assured me everything was normal. I see a cardiologist every few years to check on my arrhythmia that has been a pain in the butt for years.

I am 28 year old female. I have been having pain in my left chest, left shoulder and right jaw for about 5 days now. Yesterday, I went to the ER because it felt like someone was stabbing me in between my shoulder blades and I couldn't catch my breath.

They did a rapid EKG and a blood test when I walked in the door. The nurse said, I doubt anything is wrong with your heart its probably an ulcer or something. So they took me to a room and got me settled in. The doctor comes in a tells me my blood test showed that I either had a heart attack or I am going to have a heart attack!! Really?!?? Totally started freaking.

They re-ordered the blood tests twice after that. They came back normal. Both of my EKGS were normal and a CT scan with contrast of my chest came back normal. They sent me home.

I am still freaking out. My left arm/shoulder is really sore. I am trying to re-assure myself that nothing is wrong or else they wouldn't let me leave, right?
I just need re-assurance to trust the doctors and not let my mind go to that place....What could be the problem?

Frozen Shoulder :: Pain Pattern - Left Sided Chest Pain?

i've just been diagnosed with FS. severe shoulder/neck (left side and back of neck) pain with very little arm/shoulder movement range.

however, can anyone say, if it's 'normal' for FS to cause left-sided chest . chest pain that radiates to shoulder blade, down (L) arm, elbow, wrist, palm of hand, up the left side of neck, ear & face culminating in a hemi -cranial headache?

whilst i know the scapula, elbow,wrist & palm are pretty classic of FS, however, i'm worried re the chest pain/left sided neck, ear pain & headache. it fluctuates throughout the day and is worst in the pm & at night. i did have an ambulatory ECG some 9 ago. it was considered within the normal limits. that was before to-days diagnosis. my GP made a v. quick diagnosis based on 3 arm movements this evening and wasn't interested in the chest pain aspect.
