Epididymitis worry!

Edited , 2 users are following.

I was diagnosed as having Epididymitis in my left testicle and lower groin since March last year after I had a colonoscopy. In August I was put on 2 consecutive courses of antibiotics. I had a ultrasound which was normal, blood test was normal and urine sample was clear. My GP has put me on Amitriptyline for the pain it has helped a little. He upped my dosage a good bit in late November. I have 2 side effects of the medication constipation and dry orgasm.

Saw Uroligist who confirmed that I have Epididymitis. He also said it would go away over time.

One last thing I must mention is that I haven't had any sexual contact for just over 5 years.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Cephalexin is also a good antibiotic for this problem.
