Unhappy Testicle Pain / Ache

I've had some long term testicle pain/aching. It's been 4 months.
Started out as a strange pain in my perineum when I sat down. Then shortly after, it was excrutiating where nothing, not even cloth could be touching in my testicles (especially the back side). Also, pain and discomfort at perineum persisted. It's been going on for four months now - it seems like it's getting better (at least from the beginning) - but I have some good days and bad days. I generally sit on a neck pillow. I've had an ultra sound, nuclear bone scan, xray, and mri and none indicate anything causing this kind of pain/discomfort. I've had many urine and blood tests including STDs, a PSA and stool samples. I've been seen 4 times by my general practitioner and his pa/associates, a urologist 2 times - going to a different one in July, and a sports medicine doctor. The sports medicine doctor also had my MRI looked at by a neurologist. I even had my water tested. My son started getting the same symptoms but seems to be doin much better than me. He seems almost 100% better but occasionally has discomfort. He's had it for about 6 weeks. Of course, it's hard to tell with a 9 year old. He saw a neurologist who suggested it was likely a "viral plexitis" - which basically means a virus affecting the nerves down there. (Something like a mumps virus which can settle in the groin area.)

Does anyone have any ideas about this? It is the worst and I'm beginning to lose faith that it'll ever stop. I'm desparate!
