Discomfort on lower abdomen and testicle

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi. About one month ago i developed discomfort in my left lower abdomen and left testicle seems swollen but after getting it check by my urologist he checked my sonography of my inguinal, kidney, bladder full and empty and my blood test, he find nothing and concluded a pinched nerve caused this discomfort and sometimes slight pain and prescribed gabapenitine abd B 300 vitamine and told me to cool down if u have stressful times. After 1 month of using these medication. One night i started mid night panic attack again ( i forgot to tell u i had sometimes panic attack but not as much scary as this time) and after some research i came up with the conclusion of gabapenitine is being associative with causes of panic attack. So i decided to stop using it. After one week at first i started to feel some needling or burning senses on my left testicle and when i walk it increases and adjustment of my underwear does not help. Day by day this discomfort spread all over my scrotum and near my butt and also all over my lower abdomen and around belly button. These senses feel like if i touch a single hair on my skin it hurts like its source is deep in my body. Seems like it is beeing spread. I feel left side of my penile is more sensitive than before and my left testicle looks swollen again. Also now i feel pain like trapped gas in my lower left and sometimes right abdomen that last longer than before. I dont know if im paranoid or sth but i feel this strange feeling on my left arm and left chest and my left leg but very slight.

no visible sign on skin. No pain during ejaculation and urinating. before it gets this way when i crunched as regularity of my exercise plan i felt slight pain on left lower abdomen. i recently find something that might be related to my problem after one week constant googling and it is " scrotodynia" but im not sure. Im frustrated and hopeless. Please help. Thank you.

    I cannot help you with a medical diagnosis but one thing that has worked for me with panic attacks is taking a course at a hospital on 'mindfulnes'.  It sounds like a weird course.  Somethimes that are called, "Stress Reduction Clinc", "Center for Mindfulness" or maybe by another name.

    Most stem from the work of John Cabot-Zinn at UMASS Medical in Worcester, MA..  Most that attend are dealing with chronic problems but this awareness/practice has helped me in all parts of life.  Mindfulness helps one realize the difference with what is happening in the present moment vs. the continuous comentary in one's head.

    I'm more than happy to discuss this more if you would like.

    My best,

      Thanks for the reply Dave.

      Im happy for you that you could solve the panic attack problem.

      What im mostly suffer is from the pain and discomfort in my manhood. Its irritating and makes me really mad.

      Unfortunately, where i live these kinda facilites you talked about is hard to find and if there is, they cannot help much.

      Best wishes

      There are some good online sources.  There is an app called '10% Happier' which is good for those just starting out.  Eckart Tolle is an author lecturer that is excellent. Check him out on Youtube.  There is a guy in Ireland that has "The Daily Bell" which is excellent as well.

      The advantage of a class is that you will be with a group of people who all have chronic and termanal issues.  All they are trying to do is stay sane until they are no longer around.

      All of us have stories going on in our heads.  Mindfulness provides you with tools to get present in the moment.  Otherwise you mind ended up like wild horses going in all directions.  

      I hear you regarding your current issue and hopefully you will get that attended to.  But, the mindfulness stuff is something worth checking out. 

      I wish you well,

    Hey mate!! Some weeks ago i was treated for an NGU which because it was mis-diagnosed it turned into a UTI which followed then in an infection of my epididymitis. Because i thought my doctor new what he was doing i thought that ((the pain which was increasing instead of decreasing from the antibiotics)) i should relax and everything will be resolved. after one week of finishing the antibiotics i was still in pain so i went to a second doctor which was an urologists. He did an ultrasound and he found that i have also a very small varicocele. He also said that my epididymis is a bit inflamed so he gave me an other course of antibiotics wich is supposed to be taken for 14 days but to be sure that i will heal and also because i waited long enough before going to him he perscribed for 30 days in total. I really dont know if you have an infrction and how is your sexual life but to be sure just go and chek to a second doctor or a hospital. Having pain in your manhood should be something that must worry you and i learn it the hard way. Even now that it is almost a week that i finished my antibiotics i can feel a slight discomfort and a bit of pain that comes and goes which as i was told is because the area is sensitive and any healing will take much more when compared with other body parts. so my advice is to go get checked as soon as possible. Hope you heal and help other in turn.

    Today i got my scrotum and inguinal sonographed and nothing was wrong with them but a MINIMAL BILATERAL HYDROCELE .

    I dont know if it is a big problem or not. But could it make all of these discomfort and pain in my abdomen, scrotum and butt?

    Im getting to go to my urologist for diagnosis.

    Hope ill come up with the solution.
