i also feel a warm sensation on my back
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

I'm glad that you tested negative for STD's.

The pinching sensation likely is from spasms of blood vessels in the testicles.

It's not anything abnormal and can happen from time to time.

Usually you might notice that they will itch more, be more sensitive or be more retracted.

Where is the pain in your back?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
It's not pain in the back. It's a warm sensation throughout the back. I tend to get hot throughout the body. Tend to get very warm throughout the body something I didn't before.
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

I see, so it's more of a warm sensation, no pain. I understand.

Anxiety can cause such a sensation but hormone imbalances such as thyroid issues or excess blood sugar can give you the same sensation.

Muscle spasms can give on and off warm sensation but usually that is associated with pain as well.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

It's unlikely that the sensation in the testicles is associated with the back.

It's not a sign of anything dangerous like cancer, that usually will present with very hard mass on the testicle and a lot of pain.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
What should I take. What treatment?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

I would recommend increasing the omega fatty acids, that will decrease the spasms. Next try to take some anti-inflammatories, advil or motrin or ibuprofen.

That should decrease inflammation and within a few weeks it should decrease a lot.

ive also felt itchines on anus on and off
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

You could try supplements but I don't recommend them until you try the more natural things like the omega fatty acids that I recommended.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

If it's on and off it could be related to the sensation you are feeling in the testicle. And you already had STD testing which is good.

The only disease that causes anal itching is parasites but if that's the case then the itching would be severe and get worse day by day. In that case you would need to do a stool test to check for parasites but it's unlikely that you have that based on what you have described.

should i take omega3 fatty acid oil pills?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

Yes, the omega 3 is fine, there are also those that have omega 3 and 6 and 9 fatty acids.

If you find the combination pills they are much more effective.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
is there any brand you would recommend?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
could these symptoms be std related even though the tests came back negative? could it be that the stds didnt show in the test?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

With today's test it's really impossible for an STD to be missed.

I don't think any of the symptims you are having has to do with an STD so don't be worried, it's likely a benign cause.

ive also felt warm flushing in my thighs
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

I would watch and see if anything changes. Most likely the symptoms will go away with time.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

The sensation in the thighs probably is the same thing you are experiencing in the back, it shouldn't have anything to do with anything serious.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
would you say that the warm flushing on the thighs is related to an omega deficiency?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

That's likely the case.

Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

I would take it for 2-3 weeks and see if you notice an improvement. I suspect after even a few days you will notice a good improvement.

Make sure to eat healthy and avoid stress in the meantime.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
would the omega then resolve the spasms of blood vessels on testicles?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

Most likely, I suspect they are interrelated.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
would the deficiency of omega cause to get hot and need to be lower the ac when others in the same room dont feel hot or get cold when im very warm?
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

Yes, it can. Because it means that your body is slightly inflamed. Could be from something you're eating or maybe stress. Omega will decrease the inflammation.

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
ok. thanks. i think that helps alot. im going to definitely start taking the omega. hopefully that will help.
Expert:  Dr. Mo replied 1 month ago.

I think it will.
