I've endured this pain for over 6 weeks so far. How long does this last? My case is non-sexual.
Epididymitis - Sexually Transmitted - Why is my epididymitis lasting so long?
Added 29 Nov 2015:
I lifted something far to heavy 6 weeks ago and strained my groin. After only one week, I felt better, with no med. Unfortunately, a week later, I slipped on some wet leaves, same side and fell to the ground with the heal of my right foot hitting dead center of my right hip. My knee AND hip hit the ground at the same time. I was diagnosed with something like Psosas, and also Epididymitis. Prior to this even I've never heard of either. All I can say is the pain is extreme, my right groin, knee, hip, and testicle are in horrible pain. I've been to four doctors and two ER's before I finally found a Doctor who properly diagnosed me. I just finished the antibiotic and am still on an inflammatory drug. It's been 6 weeks since my first injury. I've been bound to my bed per the Doctor for 3 weeks now..... How much longer will this last? Is there anything else one can do?? Please also let me share that this is non-sexual. I've not had any sexual activity in over a year now. A bad break-up has made me come to terms with myself. I will no longer try to "settle." I want to find the right partner, the one and only. If not, I'd prefer staying single. Enough of that.....someone please give me some proper advice as to how to either remove or endure this pain! Thanks...... JD
My understanding is that Epididymitis is swelling or pain in the back of the testicle in the coiled tube (epididymis) that stores and carries sperm and this is not always caused by an infection. It is to do with inflammation of the epididymis. I think in my case varicose veins are pushing on the epididymis and causing inflammation. It can also apparently be caused from an enlarged prostrate or a hernia.
