Thank you for your post and welcome to our forum.
Your symptoms are certainly consistent with chronic epididymo-orchitis, which can have many causes, including STDs.  However all your tests have been negative and you have been treated with a number of antibiotics, which would have cleared all possible STDs.  Therefore you cannot have any STDs at present.  I can also confirm that the management that you have received is correct and therefore I would advise you to continue with the advice given by your doctors.  I would not recommend any further tests.
Best wishes,

Dear Doctor,

I am really Thankful for your time and your answers it is make me really  feel much better but on the other hand still worry since still I have the same symptoms, but excuse me to ask couple of questions:

first of all: the Sexual activities:  the last unprotected sex I had was an anal sex with lady (not active sexually ) "8 months before I start getting the pain" any other experiences was either protect or many years ago"

1- One of the doctors says: since you had an chronic inflammation because of the Infection you had, it can take up to 8 weeks until these symptoms disappear, and suggest playing some sports to speed up the recovery, my question is: with an chronic inflammation cases how long it will take until the symptoms gone after the Antibiotic course "assuming if it was an Infection".

2- Since doctors here still diagnose this as an STD even though all the lab test I did was NEGATIVE, is it helpful if I ask the lady "I had anal sex" with her before to do an STDs test? is it easier to find the STIs on the ladies than men?
