I'm a 19 year old male who was diagnosed with epididymitis a few weeks ago. It never fully cleared up, and was accompanied by burning and frequent urination.
My urolgist prescribed a 4-week antibiotic treatment (1-week in and it seems to be doing alright, no more burning, less frequent urination/urgency, nausea is down).
I'm still having some minor discomfot in my right testicle and some achy/burning in the scrotal area right under the pelivs and a cramping feeling above that in the pelvis.
My real quesiton is, my right testicle(the one in pain, the one with epididymitis) is hanging higher than it was before. I can pull it to the bottom of the scrotum, back into normal position along side his brother, but it someitmes irritates the aching/burning in the upper part of the scrotum. Sometimes it will be there, and will be there during a hot shower, but it usually hangs half an inch to an inch higher, noticably. While i dont know exactly when it started, i'm pretty sure it started with the epididimytis.
Is this a normal side effect?
Or should i schedule an early appointment with my urologist before my antibiotics are done?
i would appreciate any help. I've been sick for aobut 2 months now and my paranoia's running high :-/
