Thank you for your question.

The symptoms that you mention surely do indicate that you had a urine infection, which in your case was proven to be Stah infection.

However the other symptoms that you are experiencing do not all point to it being related to a Staph infection. For the other symptoms like tingling in the fingers you would require further tests such as vitamin B12 levels, thyroid test and x-rays or MRI of your neck to rule out a pinched nerve.

The feeling in the testicles is most likely also related to the infection that you are having.

I am sure you would have already been put on an antibiotic which will cure your urine symptoms.

Let me know if you have more questions.
