Hello, My name isXXXXX i will try to help you with your queries today.
does it hurts when you pass urine ?
any previous medical issues ?
No ... not really. The "burn" remains in the vein ... There is no pain in the head of the penis when passing urine.
No pain in the testicles.
No pain except the discomfort in the middle of the penis, "inside" ... which I can feel, esp when "erect," on the vein that runs
against the shaft
never had a problem before
Since how many days you have this problem ?
this is the second day .. it started during the night Wednesday night but has not subsided
yesterday, it got worse
Do you have fever ? or feel feverish ?
Back or lower back pain ?
any trauma to the penis while having sex ?
HAD a pain for a little while that felt like a minor hernia or tear in the lower abdomen.
Does the pain increases when you have sex ?
no ... I actually feel better when erect
but that's also because I can put 'pressure' on the area of discomfort / burning
The symptoms you have mentioned are indicative of urinary tract infection predominantly urethritis and cystitis.
It seems uncomplicated as you have not mentioned back pain and blood in the urine.
no creamy discharge
I am allergic to pennicilin
It needs antibiotics like ciprofloxacin for 5-7 days
for recovery along with pain killers.
you can try tylenol and advil for pain till you are able to see your doctor.
You have questions ?
I am looking at Cipro to make sure I can take it
penicillin allergic can take it safely.
You have been most helpful. I thank you for your time. Most satisfied.
I hope chat was helpful, let me know if you have further queries. Rate the answer as excellent if no more queries. Thank you.
you are welcome.
I was worried it was cancer.
Or a kidney stone.
Or something quite serious (which I know it can be if left un-treated)
Just "not worrying" is a big help. I am going to a urologist this afternoon, but the wait was most stressful.
It is an uncomplicated UTI and will settle with treatment.
