It has been reacuring on a daily basis it would seem. i get up and face the day feeling fine, great. I go to work eat as anyone does. Then, toward the end of the day, begin feeling a dull pain in my left testicle. This dull pain gets worse as the evening gets later. It makes me feel like going to the bathroom, but i cant. It feels backed up and uncomfortable. anything i ate, i feel like throwing up, and sometimes do. the first time was the worst actually, it was just in my stomach. I ate a large beef burger and fw]ell asleep, only then to wake up around 4am with a serious stomach ache which wore off in a couple of agonising hours but since then. As i mentioned, I'm fine in the morning and day but it starts to creep up on me during the day. Last night , thew up again and i begin feeling slight relie but still paced around in pain. The pain seemed to have moved from my left testicle to the left side of my stomach. i eventually fell asleep around midnight and just woke up now. Its 2am, and i feel fine, back to normall, no pain....untill tomorrow evening when the feeling returns....e coli? std? ulser? i have no clue.
Get yourself to a doctor - like yesterday. Inguinal hernia is definitely a possibility but even worse, the fact that you're vomiting means it may be strangulated. That means a loop of bowel drops down through the abdominal wall and the blood circulation gets cut off. In this case, your testicle is getting sucked up into the hole as well. This is not something you can delay. If what I have described IS what is happening, delay could get you a bowel resection surgery and peritonitis in addition to a hernia repair. Get going to your doctor or ER NOW.
