Hi,

I understand your discomfort.

As per your description,your dull ache in testicle and upper hamstring are both related to nerve irritation due to Spondylolisthesis. The testicular pain will be reflected in the testicle on the pinched nerve side.

It's good to see an Orthopedist or Neurologist for persistent pain.

Physical therapy can be effective so you can consider it.

You should do stretching while doing job work.

Your doctor may advise some medicine to relive such nerve pain.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

hamstring just feels really tight particularly during exercise but started after testicle, as opposed to left testicle which is more a dull ache and not sore to touch. do you think this is related?

sorry i also had keyhole adrenal gland removed after benign cyst a few years back
Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 5 months ago.

Hi,

These can be related due to nerve irritation in it's path from strained muscles around it.

MRI,nerve conduction test can be done further.

If you have any further query then we can discuss it thoroughly rather than give us poor/bad service.

can you recommend someone in my area to visit?
Customer: replied 5 months ago.
what nerve would this be?
Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 5 months ago.

I personally can't recommend any specialist in your area.

However you can see your family doctor first and get a referral to specialist( Orthopedist/Neurologist).

MRI and Nerve conduction velocity test can determine the particular nerve and it's location.

If you are satisfied with our conversation then bonus and positive feedback are appreciated.
Feel free for further queries.

Please avoid poor/bad rating.
Hope this helps.
