Epididymitis or Prostatitis?
March of 2016 I noticed a weird sensation in my right testicle, seemed the epididymis tail was sensitive to touch so I went to the doctors. She did STD and testicle ultrasounds testing and all results came back negative, my testicle discomfort was still present. I left it alone to see if it would recover on its own for the next month. I then developed groin, lower abdomen (pubic bone) and back pain while still having testicle aches. Also some discharge.
Eventually the testicle pain got sharper and more intense (date= middle of May 2016) as the weeks went on so I went to emergency where they did ultrasounds and STD testing again and all results came back normal. I was fed up and in intense pain, so I went back to my doctors and insisted that I had Epididymitis as I had almost every single symptom of it. She treated me with 1 cefixime pill and one other pill that I cannot remember while also taking doxycycline 100mg for 10 days twice daily (June 2016 at this point). Once all 10 days of the antibiotics were done I felt better and had no testicle irritation or discomfort for the next 8 months.
Recently I noticed my testicle feeling weird January 2017 with mild aching that felt familiar to my previous experience with "Epididymitis". So I went to my doctor and she treated me with I beleieve 4 azithromycin pills and an injection plus I gave a urine sample for possible STD and she sent me on my way. A few days later I noticed nothing was improving so I went back and got prescribed Cefixime and doxycycline 100mg for 7 days in hopes of improvement as it worked for me the last time in hopes that the testicles/possible Epididymitis would improve. On the second last day of doxycycline this time around I felt sharp spermadic cord pulses with testicle movement which subsided the last day of antibiotics and once the antibiotics were finished. Now being finished the 7 days of doxycycline I am experiencing inner thigh(groin), lower back, pubic bone pain (The back pain is usually only in the morning when I wake up) also slight testicle aching that moves from the right testicle one day and the left testicle the next. I looked up these key symptoms and it seems to me that it could be Prostatitis but also could be Epididymitis the doctor prescribed me Act Ciprofloxacin.
I started taking the cipro after letting my body regain its good bacteria after doxycycline cycle. First day of cipro I felt amazing, no testicle discomfort or pain. Seems to be working for me, I read treatment for epididymitis can cure infection but symptoms of swelling can take weeks to heal after treatment. I also noticed when all of this started that when I ejaculated it did not shoot out as it normally does,
what is the reason for this? and does it sound like I have Epididymitis or Prostatitis?!
