Have they ever tried you on any medication called gabapentin?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am not familiar with that medicine. I spoke with my father about this one time. It turns out he also on occasion will get that pain.
Expert:  Dr. Y. replied 1 year ago.

The pain you're having maybe related to inflammation of the epididymis called epididymitis. But it also may be due to nerve irritation. If the pain only happens occasionally, I would recommend that you take an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen to help the pain go away. If it is a daily occurrence, then you may need to be started on the medication such as gabapentin which is designed to stop nerve pain. You should discuss this with your urologist. Hope this helps.
