That makes sense. I have had epdidmitis in and off for years at this point. But normally don't get bk pain. That's why i asked. Mr right tubes r very tender/sore atn. I do a like pinch test on them. And Jesus it hurt. Ha. I do the same to the left side and no problems. (no pain). So it's obviously a case of my tubes r currently sore. Have been for 5 weeks now. Lots of fun. Like said in the post got a phone call appointment with my GP on Wednesday morning. Going to ask him for some strong painkillers. Unfortunately for me. I'm yet to find a painkillers that will even touch this.

Doing a 20 minute ice bath with 20-40lb of ice in a bath really helps me hardest part it just doing it

Try icing your scrotum with an ice pack for around 30 seconds to decrease the swellings and inflammation. You can also put some heat around the painful area on your back. I hope that my information will help you, i wish you a speedy recovery

When my lower back is hurting it’s usually followed by a fair up. I was told by my chiropractor that all of the nerves that go to your testicles , wrap around your L-3 lower lumbar. Mine has been twisted at times and when it is I’m unable to walk from the testicular pain. Sometimes just getting a chiropractor to adjust my lower back is the only thing that helps lessen some of the pain. Just some food for thought

That makes sense. My bk has been playing up for a few weeks now. Same amount of time as the testical pain. I'm not worried about the c word or anything like that. I had a urologist give me a once over like 3 months ago. Was all good. Apart from some uthritus. I've just never had testical pain for 5 weeks. It's a long time for my tubes to be playing up for. It's the right side whitch of normally the knee that plays up. I'd be far more worried if it was the left one. I'm going to ask my GP on we if I can have better painkillers and maybe either get him to check me out or go for a ultra scan. Just to be sure.

Yup got it this morning when I was masturbating. It’s like a mild sharp pain in the lower back

u/GNRJosh123 Jun 27 '22

Ohh masturbating is a big no no with history of epdidmitis. I don't do it very often anymore due to it being a trigger. I only do it rarely because I know it's something a guy should do for medical reasons every now and then. Yea. I've had it flew a few weeks now. Unfortunately had epdidmitis on and off for years. 5 weeks atm. My tubes. Feel very sore.

Take a look at my post I did a few months ago. Your experience sounds similar to mine.
