Ache in right testicle for 2 weeks

40 year old male here. For the past couple of weeks I have had a horrible, constant ache in the right testicle however it doesn't hurt to touch or examine. It doesn't hurt to pee or ejaculate either.

I went to the doctor who did a physical exam and they found no lumps, bumps, swelling, or hernia. I did a urine test to check for STDs and bacterial infection, and both of those came back clean. Between the physical exam and bacteria test, I'm pretty sure epididymitis has been ruled out.

I'm getting a testicular ultrasound next week hopefully if they can schedule me, but for the past couple of days, the pain has also felt like it's been shooting up into my groin in sharp bursts.

I'm at a total loss here as to what this can be. My symptoms don't really seem to match anything since there is no swelling or redness or anything. The testicles appear normal and function normally but the right one is just aching so bad. OTC pain meds work briefly but the pain always comes back with a vengeance.

Has anyone else experienced this?

It could be a nerve issue. I had something similar but it went away. Sometimes thinking about it too much can make it worse.

Thinking about it and obsessing over it definitely makes it worse, and also gets the anxiety going. I find just putting on a great TV show or podcast to binge helps me get through the night without thinking about the pain too much.

I'm heading into month 3 now and getting more worried. Pain is affecting both testicles now (although never at the same time, it's either one side or the other) as well as a weird pressure in my pelvis. Could certainly be nerves or muscle related.

How long were you having pain issues before it went away?

I'm following up with you. By now you've had the testicular ultrasound.  What was the outcome of that and then we'll chat further.

I'm having the Ultrasound this Friday and then I will know more hopefully early next week. This pain is seriously making me lose my mind.
