Epididymis at site of attachment to the Testicle

Hi 32 y/ M,

I have constant 2/10 pain to the epididymis at site of attachment to the testicle that is painful on palpation.  No redness, swelling, discharge or issues urinating.  Same goes for sexual activity and ejaculation.  It has persisted for a year, however at the beginning of the year it was a 9/10 pain that I presumed was testicular torsion.  Previous heavy lifting in occupation; no lifting for over a year.  

A treatment for epididymitis (oral antibiotics) proved no effect. It also radiates into the L pelvis and down the leg (tightness in the quads, calf, and burning pain to side of foot).  

Gabapentin, Naproxen, T3s, and physiotherapy tempered the pain to what it is now.  Now I only use T3s and physio to manage the pain.

Ultrasound, X-rays, CT Scan, and MRI all have shown no abnormalities.
Possible Relevant History: Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (remission for 12 years and was isolated to neck area pre/post treatment).  

I'm looking for any thoughts on this case.
