33 year old male. Looking for some answers; I'm miserable!
About 6 years ago, started feeling pain in my LRQ abdomen/upper groin (inguinal) area. Not a hernia! Confirmed by CT. However, that did show some slightly enlarged lymph nodes in my lower right abdominal area. Then my right testicle started to feel sore. Then started getting pain down the back of my right hamstring. This has come & gone over the past 6 years, but it's mostly here - and becoming more frequent. My LRQ abdomen has some sore glands with seem to be in the subcutaneous tissue. I have "random" sore/tender spots along my spine, but it only hurts when I touch the vertebrae on their right side. I.e., if I touch the left side of the vertebrae, I don't feel any pain/tenderness. I also tend to have soreness/pain in my right trapezius and shoulder blade area.
1) alcohol - which makes me feel unwell for several days, including in the liver region. Ultrasound showed mild fatty liver 2 years ago, so I've drastically cut back on alcohol. But now it seems I feel unwell (like liver tenderness) SOMETIMES after consuming alcohol, but not always.
2) masturbation - I get bored and sometimes would do it up to 6 times a day. Wondering if somehow the motion of my right arm/shoulder in this process has somehow done somethign to the muscles on my right side/caused right sided nerve damage/impingement that leads to this right-sided pain. Or, maybe it's somehow causing inflammation?
3) I chewed on plastic for YEARS as a kid/teen/young adult....I'm OCD, and this must have been a release. It terrifies me to think of all of those chemicals I took in. Maybe this has somehow completely messed up my liver.
I've had a CT of the abdomen/groin, lumbar spine (showed some mild disc degeneration), ultrasound of liver (mild fatty liver), ultrasound of the testicle, and nothing remarkable.
