I'm wondering if any guys who have orchialgia have tried acupuncture and found relief from the awful physical pain. Orchialgia is chronic physical pain in one or both testicles. It's a big mystery in medicine and treatments from MDs are dismal to horrible. Orchiectomy (surgical removal of a testicle) is an option but only works for 50% of the men who undergo it. The man in the losing 50% can have physical pain much worse than what he had before the orchiectomy--> it's nightmarish PHANTOM LIMB PAIN if a testicle is removed and no pain relief was gained from the loss of the testicle.
Has anyone here tried acupuncture and found relief from the pain? In one specific acupuncture page on pain in the external genitals --
