Prostate pain for last 4 days

Posted , 8 users are following.

I have prostate area pains for the last 4 days.  The pain is zero when I wake up from sleeping but as the day goes along, the pain increases slowly.  My job is mostly sitting down.  By 4pm, I have considerable pain.  I've never had prostate issues.  No pain while urinating and no pain to ejaculate.  Any ideas on what it could be?  Perhaps nerve pain because I have had a back lower back for the last 15 years but it has not been hurting lately.

    Good evening.  John.  Do you feel like your seating on a ball when your seating straight in a chair.  If you do thats your prostate if not and you dont have any problem going to the bathroom and ejaculating It's most likely your back all the muscle in that area are all connected.  Are you on any pain meds  Take it easy  Ken

      Thank you for the reply.  It does not feel like I am sitting on a ball.  The pain seems to be inside that area and is a strong but dull and throbbing pain.  It is 5pm here and the pain in considerable, I would say about 6 on a 0-10 scale.  I have not taken any pain medicines but today I will take some Advil to help.

      Then it not the prostate.  It's most likely from your back  It a pinched nerve that is in the area.  It when you move around.  Just to relax and have a good evening  Ken

    So where does it hurt? The area between the scrotum and anus?

      It has been 4 days. Tomorrow is Friday. Do you think I should try to see a doctor tomorrow or wait until Monday? When I left work, my pain was around 7. Im home now laying down and it is about a 4.

      Thank you, I will have to get one of those. I took some Advil and I have been laying down for 2 hours. The pain has gotten worse in the last half hour or so. I am very uncomfortable. It is a strong but dull type of pain - not sharp. If I am like this tomorrow, I will have to see a doctor.

      If it still hurts tomorrow I'd see a doc. I say that knowing what I know now. If I was 25 I'd let it ride because I wouldn't know any better and there was no such thing as the internet back then. We were still chiseling messages in  stone tablets.

      I will defintely see a doctor tomorrow if I continue to have pain. It is hurting pretty badly right now. I am 40 years old and Ive never in my life had pain in that area.

    Are you urinating frequently and drinking water? You may have urine retention due to another issue.

      I am drinking what is considered normal for me and nothing has changed.  Throughout my life I drink less than an average person.  I know that I need to drink more water and will try to do so.
