Hello,

On a grade of 1 to 10 how will you rate the pain?
Any noticeable swelling/ redness/ bumps or blister?

Swollen testicle?
Pain in urination?

Kind Regards,
Dr. Robert

Dear Jeremiah, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I'm so sorry to hear of your discomfort.

It could be muscular pull or nerve compression.
You may need Anti inflammatory Naproxen 500 mg three times daily.
You can use Heating pads or hot wet towels on affected areas. You can apply it for 15-20 minutes and repeat it 3-4 times a day.

If required doctor can advise for- X-ray/ CT scan of affected part.
You may need x-ray of lower spine.
Involvement of Sacral nerves( S2,S3,S4) will cause testicular pain.
This can also happen due to the nerve entrapment from herniated disc at L5 level.

Also If required doctor can advise for- Steroid pill, or stronger painkiller medications.

I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for clinical evaluation and get this issue managed.

Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.

Dear Jeremiah,
Yes, having a history of herniated disc has resulted in aggravation of such symptoms.

You may need prescription of pills, as advised in previous post.
Also, you should have X-ray/ CT scan done.
