Testicle Pain after Bowel Movement

I am a 47 year old male in good health. Normal bp and such. I don't drink, smoke, or take drugs. About 8 weeks ago, I noticed that after urination, I would have the urge again within a minute or two. A small stream or several drops would be all. 2 weeks ago, about 10 minutes after a bowel movement, I had a severe pain in my testicles and lower stomach. This has reoccured several times and seems worse when I drink alot of cokes during the day. Drinking a large glass of water seems to help. The pain lasts anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. I am currently taking effexor, synthroid, allegra, and crestor daily.

Hello Sir,

It sounds like your urinary problems are related to your consumption of caffeine or how much abdominal distension you might have. A good place to start for you if you are not having other symptoms would be to attempt to regulate your diet, try drinking more water and less carbonated beverages. Also if the pain becomes unbearable it is best to report to the emergency room. Stretching of nerve fibers due to abdominal distension might be the problem here, solution being not to distend your abdomen as much. See how that works, also if you are experiencing voiding symptoms, it is appropriate for a man of your age range to have a digital rectal examination and PSA levels drawn as well.
