Lol Trev, There is such a thing called 'Blue Balls' fluid congestion in the testicles which can cause testicular pain if the situation is not relieved...

The doc and I spoke about this a few years ago, and I went home and said to the wife, the doc says the cure is... lots of sex.
The wife smiled at me, and I thought YES!
She said, just wait there a minute... cool I thought.
She comes back and handed me a roll of toilet tissue... LOL

Joking aside, my wife has been great all through this, we actually tried lots of the 'three letter word' and it does help the pain most of the time. There has been many times where the ache/pain has subsided or has stopped completely, but this only lasts for a few days.

On occasions it doesn't make any difference, so there doesn't seem to be a pattern to this problem, but there must be some sort of connection. Unless I'm producing a super amount of sperm which is swelling the epididymis tubes, something to ask the specialists I suppose.

A colleague of mine had pain in one of his testicles, he was told he had a swollen sperm tube which was infected. Two week course of antibiotics and he was all sorted, the problem never returned.

If only that was me...

Just a brief message Wes, when you see the technician for the scan on Thursday, tell her your suspicions that it could be varicose veins. She will be able to tell you the outcome of her findings if you ask and I hope she is able to get to the source of the trouble. Don’t worry if you get an erection whilst she is prodding your balls or lifting them up with the probe. Those technicians are trained to use the ‘flick of the finger” method.......

Some say having sex makes things worst, I have read many cases which all say the same as you. In my case it actually makes things better, its like a great weight has been lifted off my balls.

I always seemed to have a constant dull heavy ache in the right testicle, this is also felt in the groin area, down my leg to my foot. It feels like I'm actually carrying around a bowling ball a constant drag of heavy pain radiating up and down my leg to my testicle. The pain is always at the top of the testicle, this is where the epididymitis is, it gets very tender to the touch at times.

Sitting and walking will make it worst, wearing certain clothing will start the pain off instantly, even though the clothing isn't tight. I will go to bed at night with the pain, and wake up in the morning with no pain, so laying down is bliss. When the pain is at its worst my testicle is slightly swollen, when the swelling goes down the pain subsides.

It certainly sounds as though veins or tubes are getting blocked, or there is an infection that is adding to the problem. I've had several courses on antibiotics over the years, but these only work for a short time. The dosage has only been for one or two weeks though, maybe I need a longer increased dosage like you have mentioned.

I'm just hoping they see something tomorrow, if they just palm me of like all the other times... I dont know what's going to happen. The inflammation tablets and pain killers are no longer working.

Well this has been most entertaining

In all seriousness, if sex makes things better and antibiotics relief things, albeit temporarily, it does sound more like a blockage, possibly compounded by varicose veins in the vicinity.

Good luck tomorrow, hope they get you sorted, tell you wife she has my sympathy, men don't do pain very well

I used to suffer bouts of this, with no idea what it might be. I only came across it when I researched it and the research I did suggested that not all doctors believe there is such a thing.

For me it was a constant nagging pain around the groin area, but with no particular point of focus.

Hi.
I had a Hydrocele in one of my tackle a few years back, the missus seemed to be quite taken on by it!!! It did go down after a few months, painless though.
At the time I thought the name of it was something I could order from Karcher!
