Epididymitis and Masturbation (Detrimental or Beneficial?)

Hello, first time here.

I was recently diagnosed with Epididymitis, due to an intense and sudden pain in my right teste. It flared every minute or so, and is incredibly painful. I received Doxycycline for the bacterial infection, and Percocet for the pain.

What I am wondering is would it be safe to masturbate, pain not withstanding, or should I wait until I am more/fully healed? The pain is in the lymph nodes on the right side of my pelvis and at the base of my penis as well, so I am not sure what damage I could possibly inflict by doing this.
