Hi Patricia. I am experiencing a rythmic tingling on the underside

This answer was rated:

Hi Patricia. I am experiencing a rythmic tingling on the underside of my testicles. No pain, just two or three seconds of tingling every ten seconds or so. And I'm supposed to take an airplane trip in about an hour. Should I be worried?


As other expert is offline, May I help you?

Associated burning sensation and pain during urination?

History of unprotected sex with multiple partners?

Any swelling, redness on testicles?

Lower back pain?


Frequent urination?

Penile discharge?

Any rash,bumps on testicles?

Since how long have you been suffering from?

NONE of the symptoms you're listed. I feel absolutely fine and have had no problems with urination defecation, or ejaculation.


I first noticed it about 24 hours ago.


I have been sitting more than usual lately.


The tingling you describe is due to nerve irritation/diminished blood supply in the region.
Tingling is classical sign associated with nerve irritation.Sitting in one position for long periods of time can diminish blood supply to the testicle area and can manifest as tingling sensation.
You can try a warm sitz bath to relax the area.
These signs don't suggest a serious medical emergency so you should not worry much and go ahead with your flight.
If the symptoms persist for next few days further investigations may be considered like colour doppler study of scrotum and testicles.
I hope this helps
