thanks @raising4girls and @PVPSux for your input I have read @Acschiro posts and he definitely knows what he’s talking about!! I have gone to 6 acupuncture treatments so far, 2 a week and don’t feel any better… Not sure how long it takes. During treatment am nice and relaxed but day after same or worse pain. Currently am dealing with entire left side pain neck/back of shoulder that radiates down back of arm into wrist and fingers (tingling/numbness pain). As for left bottom half, left testicle/outter hip, left glute (deep pain), left outter hip, left hamstring/thigh, and pain that shoots down to foot (in the arch of the foot). Am convinced this is all because of the constant deep pain in my left testicle for over 3 months that just brought on all this referred pain.
Just did another US of scrotum yesterday of course all normal. No more enlarged epi which my last US showed I had. Left hip/pelvic US all normal, xray’s of both hips/pelvics and SI joints all good, Xrays of entire spine did show mild bone spurs in my cervical and lumbar joints so am not sure if that is contributing to the left pain. Oh also did a testosterone test and levels show normal but on the low side.
Testosterone = 8.6 nmol/L Range = 8.4 - 28.8 nmol/L
Testosterone Free = 254 pmol/l Range = 196-636 pmol/L
Wondering now if being on the lower side of normal range is also a contributing factor. Sorry for the long winded post just so frustrated and down.
Regiment = vimovo nsaid, acupuncture, omega fish oil, tsbp of papaya seed powder
Doc prescribed me Zoloft antidepressant but am scared about taking based on the known side affects…
Also seeing a rheumatologist to figure out if I have autoimmune issues…
