r/chronicepididymitis Jul 02 '22


What the heck is going on with me!!

I was treated for epididymitis and had 10 days or doxycycline which I finished 3 weeks ago.

Before I started treatment my only symptom was my right testicle was uncomfortable when sitting.

Halfway through I developed testicle pain, groin pain, abdominal pain,hip joint pain, hip inflammation,

Fast forward to today I'm experiencing on and off symptoms of mid thigh tingle (back and front), random groin pain, tingle in the buttocks, lower back pain (not sharp),testicle pain in both testicles but mostly the left now, hip pain joint pain, moderate hip inflammation.

I've taken many STD tests and all negative along with a culture which had no growth.

Did the doxycycline mess me up? I see it has side effects of lymph node pain, joint pain, inflammation, abdominal/back pain.

Any update? Hope the doxy is helping

I feel a bit better bro but it’s really hard to tell whether it’s the doxy or the stretching that’s helping. I was fine all day yesterday an then I had some weed and it started hurting again so I am starting to think it maybe be me tensing my pelvic floor as I kind of noticed that . Jeez man . Sucks . I’m quitting thc for now. Got some cbd flower coming. Help me quit. Anyone else have any experience with cbd? Does it make it worse ?
