I have pain above my genital area right where the pubic hair

Resolved Question:

I have pain above my genital area right where the pubic hair is, I have had similar pain before and the doctors thought I may have had a hernia, but as of 6 weeks ago when I had an ultrasound they discovered everything was normal. I've had a hard time trying to urinate or I also feel pressure when trying to have a bowel movement.....maybe just general soreness from my job? I lift luggage at a hotel.....

Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you today. I look forward to working with you.

Have you had any discharge from your penis?

Have you had unprotected sex with anyone recently?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No discharge and I've been married almost four years only one sexual partner my whole life
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Did your doctors examine your prostate or send the urine for a culture? What did this show?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The initial check up probably a year ago showed everything was normal with my urine, I have had kidney stones before and I also have to admit that I am a bit of a hypochondriac.....
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, it is possible this may be due to stress from lifting heavy things at your job. You can call small tears in the tissue above your pubic bone region from straining yourself. However, this would not explain the difficulty with urination. That may indicate a problem with a bacterial infection of the prostate called prostatitis. I would recommend you see your doctor again for a recent prostate exam and a urine culture to see if you need to be treated with antibiotics. Hope this helps.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yeah the pain is similar to what I had about a year ago when they first thought it was a slight hernia....then it went away for a few months now its back.....should i take ibuprofen?
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Yes, ibuprofen may help with the pain, but it won't help the problem with urinating. That would require an evaluation by a urologist to see what is going on.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I wouldn't say I have a problem urinating just feels pressure in that sore area when I urinate same for when I push for a bowel movement, I can go it just feels tender when I push
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
OK. Well then I would just try some ibuprofen for a few days to see if this stops the pain.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sounds good thank you for your help, any recommendation for anti anxiety treatments, I tend to focus on one health matter over and over
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.
Sorry, that is beyond my scope of expertise. You have to talk to a primary doctor about that. I only deal with the urinary tract and genital region.
