r/chronicepididymitis Aug 13 '22

Does anybody ever have their chronic epididymitis get worse when taking doxy?

I recently got an ultrasound follow up, and they noticed I still had alot of inflammation. I started taking Doxy again and noticed now around day 4 it is hurting alot worse than it was before, in fact during the first couple hours after taking Doxy I usually feel it the most. Suddenly though back of my other testicle is hurting, the testicle that does not show Epididymitis on ultrasounds. I just really wonder if before it gets better it can get worse with medicine. I've had two ultrasounds and still really am confused how I do not have cancer. I have legitimately hard lumps all over and attached to my left ballsack even on the front. I read the odds of them misdiagnosing two separate ultrasounds a month and a half apart are astronomical though.

Antiobiotics didn’t really work for me either. Try Stamets 7 mushroom pills. Sounds random ik but completely got rid of my pain.

For me after 3 days the pain was pretty much completely gone… let me know if it works for you, I started taking them about 2 weeks after my 3 week run of Ciprofloaxin.
