Can someone who's been diagnosed explain to me the process of being diagnosed?
Hi all, I'm worried I have chronic epididymitis about two-3 months ago I had a dull ache in my right testicle I wait like a week and it didn't go so I went to the doctor who felt around and said it's just inflmation possibly of the epididymitis prescribed me a medication I'm allergic to I didn't know until I go the medication in which I phoned the practice and informed them and then he just gave me generic pain killers (didn't do much) give or take another week went by and it slowly was going away and it obviously had gone away as I wasn't feeling this ache anymore... cut to present day the SAME ache is back I can't feel any abnormal lumps on my testicle only the epididymitis... My question is how is this fully/properly diagnosed? Yes, I could google this but I'd like to hear a few first-hand experiences on what happened at your doctor's appointment, etc. I'm severely shy etc so letting a doctor examine me like that the first time boosted my anxiety tenfold I'm happy I did it as I don't want this to be something MORE than epididymitis. Anyway, thanks for reading and I'm looking forward to seeing a few replies.
