Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello this is Dr. Stan and I will assist you with your question today. I am board certified and I have 40 years of patient experience. I will be happy to help you today. I'm sorry to hear that a reason for your pain has not been found. OK, you had a negative scan that does not indicate a hernia, so the surgeon can't fix what is not found. If not a hernia, then it has to be a muscle strain. You don't indicate that you took any medication for this. May I suggest a few things. Begin taking an NSAID such as Ibuprofen 600mg (three 200mg tablets every 6 hours for a minimum of 4 weeks). If possible (Medical insurance coverage) request physical therapy from your doctor that will provide stretching 3 times a week for 12 weeks. This can be a very frustrating problem that will take 3-6 months of relative inactivity to fix.
I am available to answer any additional questions you may have. Thank you for allowing me to provide assistance. I hope your medical problem(s) are resolved soon and you feel better. If you find the information I provided helpful, please rate me with 5-Stars. Thank you
Have you contacted your doctor to begin therapy?
The testicular pain could be inflammation (epididymitis) or just referred pain from a muscle strain in the groin. This can be diagnosed with Testicular Ultrasound.
The joint pain could be referred from the muscle injury or arthritic. The NSAID will help with both.
