I have suffered with pain in my testies since october 2006
It started out of the blue and in the left testical as a dull ache and over the years grew stronger and stronger. It developed in the right side after a couple of years and the right side would be less frequent but far more sharp. the left side became more intense and is now pretty much constant.
I have been going through many tests with GP, Urology, Pain management clinic including ultrasounds and blood tests, urine tests etc but they have never found any underlaying cause.
This weekend while doing nothing but laying on the sofa I had an extreme pain in the left side that i can only describe as like my testical was in a tight vice and someone was sawing at my tubes with a rusty saw, after 2 hours i took myself to hospital as by this point was in extreme pain in both testies and the left had retrached upwards roughly 1/2 way past the right.
At the hospital after being fondeled by 5 doctors and a surgeon they ruled out testicular torsion but the ultrasound showed a low blood supply to both testies and inflammed tubes on both sides. They ended up sending me home with antibiotics like they have done on many occassions over the years (ciprofloxacin) with a possible diagnosis of epididmites, i was told to go to my GP as soon as i could and get a referral for urology.
At the doctors this morning (new doctor other then my usual doctor) he gave me the referral but after examination said there is a possibility that it could well be testicular torsion that twist itself back and forth with movement.
I have in total been prescribed many pain relief and other drugs for the condition but am currently prescribed
600mg gabapentin 3tpd
50mg ciprofloxacin 2tpd
100mg tramadol 3-4tpd
30/500 co-codamol 2 tablets up to 4tpd
Has anyone else suffered anything remotely similar and have any advice.
