Some compression causing this pain?

For the past 1.5 years, I am having pain in my pelvic region, mainly in my left groin and left testicle.  The pain feels like aching and throbbing.    Sometime I have this pain in my left foot as well, which is constant and dull with mild throbbing.  

When my urologist asked for a scan of scrotum, it din't find anything abnormal.   There is no testicular cancer, vericocele, epididymits or prostatitis.    There is no blood in urine.   The blood reports and urine culture reports also came normal.   However, the scan revealed a mild swelling in the left lymph (which is not visible from outside).     The doctor said not to worry on that, and it may not be any infection, me being doubtful,  he did prescribe antibiotics for 3 months, but they never worked.

Other than this chronic pain for 1.5 years, I am perfectly healthy otherwise.   No other health issues.

I just wanted to check whether these pain can be related to renal disorders.  

Can this be a nutcracker syndrome, or any other compressions in the veins resulting in poor supply of blood causing these pains in the left testicle and groin pain?

Should I visit a renal specialist (nephrologist)?  

This pain is really bothering me...  What are the other tests I can take?

Hi there!

Well, without a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. With infections ruled out, possibilities that may need to be considered include GU inflammations, neuro-muscular causes, vascular causes, referred pain from other regions etc. the renal causes would have been evaluated for by the urologist as well. With most GU causes ruled out, one may consider looking at other possibilities such as chronic inflammations, neuro-muscular causes etc. You may consider a review with your urologist or consider an evaluation by an internist to look at other possibilities. If a specific cause is identified, it can be managed accordingly.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
