Woke up this morning...

Woke up this morning with dull pain in the left testicle coupled with what appears to be abdominal pain and gas.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

It occurred this morning when i woke up. 3 hours now. When i pass gas it seems to feel a bit better. but when i touch the testicle pain is triggered

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I had a UTI last friday and have been on CIPRO since then.

Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Swelling is not visually present.
No tests have been administered. The pain occurred this morning for the first time.
The UTI symptoms have completely subsided.
I have taken 12 doses of cipro thus far.

Thank you for the input.
I am very sorry for your symptoms.
Pain in the testicle can occur from a few causes.
Infection or inflammation is a common cause.
It often causes swelling.
As you are on CIPRO, infection is less common.
The other causes can be trauma.
Sometimes it can be referred pain from other organ like urinary colic, radiculopathy.
Prostate pain can be referred here too.
You can take Motrin for pain.
Please keep the testis well supported.
If the symptom persists, I would advise to consult doctor to have an examination.
Doctor can take a few tests like an ultrasound to know the precise cause and have a management plan.
I hope this information will be helpful.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
