Here is my dillema, and no it has nothing to do with a swiss ball, basketball, baseball or football.
It has to do with MY ball…
Left testicle to be exact.
Sunday evening the GF and I went for a walk, came back home, had some dinner and went to bed. Yesterday morning I woke up and felt like I had been hit directly in the left ball. For you guys out there you know what I’m talking about, the dull achy pain. I figured I’d wait it out, see how it felt, take it easy, etc. Well last night it still really didn’t feel any better. Figured I’d sleep it off and see how it felt this AM.
Well, it’s still not any better, still aches bad enough to where I can walk and stand ok, but am apprehensive about training hard or lifting anything heavy.
Here are some things that might help rule some things out.
Pain is a 3-4 on a 1-10 painscale.
I haven’t had strenuous sex in the last week.
Yes I have lifted heavy, especially on thursday and friday of last week.
No significant trauma to that area.
Haven’t sat on my sack, rolled over on it or done any un-neccesary pulling on it (that I can remember).
Self testicular exam reveals no unusual lumps or bumps, but upon palpation the achy symptoms were definitely exasserbated.
Self hernia test proved negative, but that’s subject to scrutiny since I did it myself.
No blood in my urine.
No painful urination.
No nausea or loss of appetite.
Anti-inflamitories didn’t seem to help (ibuprofen 600mg TID yesterday and today)
I’m thinking of a couple different maladies in my differential diagnosis.
- Being a pussy and paying too much attention to a little “owie” just because it’s my satchel.
Anyone had anything similar? Any tips or tricks? Don’t really want to run to the Dr. with this just yet, but the longevity of these symptoms do have me a little concerned.
Thanks in advance.
