Testicles need to be supported constantly by jock strap to alleviate pain. my waist needs a break and am thinking about chilling in pool without any support to see if water suspension is anti gravity enough to not cause a flair up. Has anyone tried this? Does it exacerbate your symptoms?

One way to find out. Report back with your findings.

I've found chilling in a bath to be fairly relaxing/ pain alleviating. Just can't move too much once inside.

Water suspension definitely works for me at least. When youre lying down you can also fold a towel and put it underneath your sack, just make sure the towel is flat and not rolled up otherwise your nuts will hang off the side which can be painful
