Ever since late July, my body has been acting excessively strange. It all started out with an isolated muscle tremor near the elbow of my left arm. I was at first, going to go to the clinic and get that checked out until a new issue emerged. I started to have excessive urination and experienced minor growth in my scrotum. This concerned me more, so I went to the clinic to get this checked out immediately. My blood work, blood pressure, and urine test all came out normal so I didn't worry. They also said the twitch is most likely something benign so I left and felt okay. But to ease my anxiety, they wanted me to schedule an ultrasound for my scrotum the following week so I did
Well the discomfort (No pain)) in my urinating pattern and scrotum never went away. A few days later, I rushed myself to the ER because that day, I urinated probably 25 times. I urinated so much, that I started to feel an aching fatigue in my left kidney area but the urinating wouldn't stop. They did a CAT scan of my body from my chest to my pelvis and detected no serious issues. They also did blood work, urine test, and blood pressure again and everything came out okay. One thing they did detect in the medical report was that I had a larger than normal density in my right kidney. But ironically, I've experienced no discomfort in that area at all. They also said there was colon indicated constipation and recommended I get stool softener to clear the constipation so I did. After the stool softener, and I cleared my bowels, I felt a lot better for a couple of weeks
After a couple of weeks, the urinary problems came back and I started experiencing more new issues. Numbness and tingling in my hands, legs and feet. When I went to work out as I usually do every other day, my feet could barely feel the leg presser and I knew then, that I should probably worry again. Not only that, but the following morning, this morning, which was the most terrifying at all, I woke up with extreme vertigo and need to urinate. I urinated but it only came out in driplets. I also, for the first time, experienced an inability to get an erection since I usually wake up with morning erections. There seems to be less communication now between my brain and all areas below my abdomen.
Past medical history: 9 years ago I had my gallbladder removed when I was 16 for jaundice and excessive gallstones. I still experience stomach cramps sometimes when I eat excessively fatty foods but they are minor
Urine color- Clear, very light green lightly foul smelling
Conclusion: I'm running out of money to keep going to clinics because they always try to dismiss me as a healthy young guy. After all, my blood, urine, blood pressure, is always normal. I don't know where to go from here with doctors and I'm scared. I'm more worried now about possible neurological issues from the excessive recent numbness and tingling in my body than a kidney cyst. Possible starting of MS? Parkinson's? I'm stuck deciding where I should go. My ER bill, ultrasound, etc has amounted to around $3,000 probably and doctors continuously seem to dismiss me.
Any advice? Thank you so much!
