Question Testicle Pain Shoots To Right Leg

I'm 34 and I've been experiencing very quick 'bursts' of pain in my right testicle that then transfers down my right leg all the way down to my toes. This has been going on for years (if I remember correctly as far back as high school). I go through long periods of time where it never happens, and then all of a sudden it will start up again (lasting for as little as a few hours to maybe a few days at a time).

The pain on a scale of 1-10 is maybe a 3, if that, but it's 'sharp' in nature but on the 'dull' side too. You feel the sharp, shooting pain very quickly in the right testicle and then immediately it transfers to my right leg and runs down the leg to my toe or toes (all of this from start to finish happens probably in a second's time)!

In the past I have been looked at by a Urologist for a different reason (about 7 years ago (2000) I had blood with ejactualtion one night) which then lead to what I call blood clots or 'chunks of blood' that would come out during uriniation (my GOD was that painful not to mention quite messy) LOL! So I went to the Urologist, he 'scoped me out' by putting that skinny tube with a camera inside my penis and into my body so he could look at my male parts, everything checked out A ok and the problem just went away on it's own and it's never happened again.

But back to the original post, does anyone have any idea on why this happens? I ******d the problem and it seems it's a common problem (although most people were describing the pain shooting to their abdomen area instead of their leg). So I'm not sure but I thought I would ask. I assume it's nothing I need to go to a Dr. about, as I said, it's been happening for well over a decade (even before the blood issue from back in 2000).

Re: Testicle Pain Shoots To Right Leg

Chronic Testicular pains like this are called Orchialgia and is a very difficult problem to treat. I've had this problem since I was a teenager and have tried most everything. *I opted out when asked about opiates and electric shocks. Cord (Nerve) blocks are next on my to try list and then I will ask for surgery (Assuming the blocks really block the pain)

Good luck!

Re: Testicle Pain Shoots To Right Leg

I wouldn't go thru all that just for something that happens once in a blue moon, throughout the year. Is your problem daily or something? So at least I know it's a common problem then.
