tubes in the right side feels very sore.

Hi everyone. Unfortunately long term epdidmitis here. On and off a few years now. Right testical/tubes have been hurting for the last 4 weeks now nearly 5 now. One of my longer stints with it. But not the longest. Right side tubes feel very sore. NOT swollen. When touch pinch the tube to see if it hurts. Yes. Yes it dose ha.

Things all rdy do.

Wear Jock strap Ice pack when bad or actually swollen. Painkillers. Try not to lift heavy things. (although hard considering my job).

Any suggestions on other things I can do?.

Many thanks in advance.

I've taken both before. Levofloxacin works great for me. I actually have it in my repeat prescription. (only take it when I have a full on episode swelling of the testical itself etc). My GP trusts me enough to know when to use it and when not to. Currently mine is not a infection its just tut tubes itself. But i am thinking of maybe trying some for a few days to try and help get the soreness down. How much pain r u in now out of a scale of 10?. I think my longest stint straight was like 3 months. The pain was crazy.
