  • Have ultrasound and appt. with urologist on Friday.

    I have been having pain in my left testicle for about 2 weeks. Originally the MD thought it was related to some achiness that could have been related to rheumatiod arthritis, then he thought it was epididymitis and put me on antibiotics which didnt help. Now I have the two appts. on Friday. I am pretty nervous. I am very uncomfortable somtimes with aches and pains and other times feel pretty ok. The inside of my thighs feel like they are tightening up and get itchy sometimes. This may be a side affect of the antibiotics I dont know. Im to the point where I think I may be imagining some of these things sometimes. I am just hoping for the best.
