Answer

I am sorry to hear about your symptoms. It is not possible to provide an accurate diagnosis without knowing the full details of your medical history and performing a physical exam. I encourage you to schedule an appointment with a primary care doctor to further evaluate your pain. Testicular pain can be caused by an infection, such as orchitis or epididymitis. You can also have pain from a hernia, when a loop of your intestines migrates into your scrotum. A blockage in the blood flow to your testicles, as during testicular torsion, can cause pain. You will need to undergo a thorough genital exam to determine if these diagnoses are causing your symptoms. Lower abdominal pain can be caused by constipation. Inflammatory bowel disease, such as ulcerative colitis or Crohn's, can also cause pain. Appendicitis, or an infection within the appendix, can cause abdominal pain. An infection within small outpouchings on your colon, called diverticulitis, can also cause severe abdominal pain. Problems involving your liver, pancreas, gall bladder, and kidneys can also cause abdominal pain. I encourage you to raise these possibilities with a primary care doctor. After a thorough physical exam, you may need to undergo additional blood tests or even a CT scan.
