Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello again, just a follow up to thank you for your help and to ask your advice on a continuing symptom.
As I mentioned in my original post I have developed an ache in my testicles. It has been there for 4 weeks now and I am just trying to work out if I need to get more investigation done.
History: Developed 4 weeks ago after 3 weeks of pretty intense anxiety. Anxiety has continued but significantly reduced about a week ago (7 weeks later) after confirming that I had no STIs or STDs. A GP has examined me 2 times and cannot find the source of discomfort but has ruled out epidimitis? I have a normal feeling cyst above my lefty that I have not noticed before that he was not concerned about.
It has got to the point that for the last 2 weeks I have not been able to wear underwear without considerable discomfort. When I don't wear underwear it is almost painless. I have noticed that I have aches and occasionally sharp pains in my groin about an inch inside my hip bones and an inch down. I also have had some stomach discomfort which the Doc says is likely to be anxiety related. I have also had pain between my scrotum and anus which he said is very typical of anxiety.
He does not think it is worth investigating further, however this is very uncomfortable and doesn't seem to be improving. I think it might be muscular as a result of weeks of tension particularly focussing on the groin due to possible STI, but just don't know if I could have something else wrong.....
Thank you so much for your help
Thanks Doc, I might just relax for another week and see if things settle. If I am still in trouble then I will specifically ask for a referral to get an ultrasound.
Thanks again. Been a wild couple of months, time to move forward I think.
