I was diagnosed with Epididymitis about a month ago. I took a round of antibiotics for a week and the pain cleared up completely. Then about 4 days later the pain was back and slowly getting as bad as before. I saw a urologist who gave me antibiotics to last me 3 weeks twice a day.
I am two weeks in. The pain has lessened but is still there. I had been taking antacids for the first week for acid reflux and esophagus spasms, but I realized that this could lessen the effect of the antibiotics. So I completely went off antacids and I'm just dealing with the acid.
I feel like the problem isn't getting much better. Should I be worried or should the antibiotics eventually clear things up? I have started taking sitz bathes, icing my testicle, taking ibuprofen (makes acid reflux worse), and wearing a jock strap for support.
I'm 23 years old and. Shouldn't have to be dealing with this. I can't lift weights or do anything with women. I let a girl dance on me last weekend and my balls were wrecked all night and I had lay down try to sleep through the excruciating pain. I just want my active lifestyle back.
Should I be worried? Any suggestions or experience?
