Thank you for your question,
I’m Dr. Saha and I’ll try to help you.
When did the pain start?
Thank you Dr. Saha. I would say a week ago or so?
I also started taking Lipitor for cholesterol about a month ago, I forgot to mention that.
How frequently do you feel the pain?
I usually notice it during the day when sitting, I seem to notice it more in the evening after I get home from work
Did you have any trauma?
Not that I can recall
How is urine?
Normal, clear-yellow to yellow
Did you consult doctor?
No I haven't
Pain in this area can come a few different causes.
Muscle strain or pull can cause it.
A hernia can cause dull pain but that is usually associated with swelling.
An infection or inflammation of the testis can cause it.
Urinary colic, pinched nerve are other possibilities.
However, your urine is clear.
I would suggest to get an examination by doctor.
Doctor can take a few tests.
Urine analysis, ultrasound examination can be taken.
Should I be looking for something in the urine?
Infection, stone are common causes.
I had a physical in early July and it was normal then
Those can cause cloudy urine, blood in it. But it may not be apparent without an examination
Still new infection can develop.
Other possibilities may also be there as I mentioned before.
If you have any further query, please feel free to ask.
Sure, and how about the Lipitor? Would that cause it?
It may not be the cause.
Ok, thank you
