Went to Urologist...

  1. I once had epipidymitis three years ago. Went to a doctor who diagnosed it, said it was nothing, nobody knows what the cause of it is, but he could cut it out if I wanted ,though he did not recommend it. My wife, meanwhile, called her parents to call a Traditional Chinese Medicine doctor in China. All they told him was that I have epipidymitis. He said it comes from long periods of inactivity. That is, you aren't moving around enough, particularly the lower body.
    Guess what? During this time I was unemployed and so doing what else? Laying around all the time on my bed watching NetFlix. This doctor was able to accurately predict my lifestyle while knowing nothing about me and being on the otherside of the planet and not seeing me, just from my symptoms.
    What he prescribed was to simply get up and moving. Specifically he called for running and jumping jacks. And it worked. It went away in as short amount of time and never came back (I've been active since).

    Western doctors have such a severe ignorance of sex and genitalia it is embarrassing. Remember, these are the same doctors who say masturbation is good for you. You will never hear that from a TCM doctor.
     
  2. I have them same issue. Had ultrasounds because the pain was radiating down my left leg. Big cysts on top of my left Epyd.

    With no far found it’s going away. I have high riding testicles and suspect fapping was actually bruising the cysts making it worse. Also if my wife gets on top during sex it hurst and gets bruised.

    I started some balls sack stretching the urologist said might help them hang lower and it seems to be working.

    Hey Everyone!

    First, my apologies for the late reply, it has been a busy few days around here. Quick symptom update, everything seems to once again be returning to normal bit by bit. Pressure and pain are both gone, still feel a very slight pressure every so often, but it is nowhere near where it was. Pain while urinating seems to have cleared. My biggest culprit and the symptom that really drives me the most insane is the pee dribble after urination. For some reason this just really is aggravating to me psychologically. This is day 154 of no PM which is my longest streak to date so I am proud about that. These next couple of weeks will be tough as my wife is away on business so I am alone a lot of the times. This will be when I found out if I have true control or not, so far so good.

    NF,

    I called my doctors office and was told that they do not normally send out urine cultures for testing for symptoms of prostatitis. This sounded very fishy to me, but the nurse told me if I continue to have symptoms to come in for some cultures to be tested. I have gone twice now, once with epididymitis symptoms the next with prostatitis, this to me seems like good causation for a bacteria test but who knows. I know my doctor is in favor of not putting me on medicine if its avoidable. Really perplexing and I am considering going and getting a second opinion.

    Guy,

    How are you doing? Any update on your symptoms?


    Thanks again for all of the support and advice guys. I am really hoping I can get all of my physical ailments fixed, but I know it might take a good while.

    Thanks for the reply tiger, I would love to believe this but I try to stay active, I try to run a mile a day at least 4 days a week. And the times where my epididymitis has been the worst is when I go snow skiing. I have gotten a very large lump the last three years I went snow skiing. I do wonder if sitting at my office desk all days play a roll. But I would think more men would be having issues with it if that were the case. I want to try and get a stand up desk soon, just for my overall health.
    On another note, I definitely agree that the western world seems behind on the male reproductive system ailments. Especially the effects of over masturbation, it is staggering to me how much they actually advise regular masturbation as a good thing. But I guess if it was in moderation its probably not that bad, a lot of people here just over indulged.

    Thats interesting, I have never heard of such a thing/issue. Please keep us updated on here about your recovery/symptom progression. I do not believe I have any signs of high riding testicles.
     
  7. That's interesting. I know TCM has other causes that list for it, this is just what the one doctor told me. Now, in my case, too, my wife was piling on every treatment she could think of all at once. I'm trying to remember what they were but, I ate banlangen, dandelion, she topically applied dandelion to the testicles, she also said a Chinese incantation where she mimed throwing the epipidymitis out the window. I'm sure there's more, during this period about every meal I ate had some form of Chinese medicine in it. Huangqi was another one.

    I also know, according to TCM, they say something is wrong with your liver if this is going on. So, you may want to try some kind of liver detox or something. I don't know.

    Hope you get well soon. I really wanted to know if rebooting helped your PE problem?

    Thats interesting, i will look into liver information and its ties to this more in depth. It really has been strange. Until Nofap I would only get it when in Colorado skiing which led me to two theories. 1) the altitude somehow flares it up or 2) actual activity of skiing aggravates it. I would return home to the South and never had an issue again. Now that I am on nofap for so long it has appeared. Thanks for all of your useful information. Have you had any issues with Prostatitis or enlarged prostate?

    Thanks Humble, well the last time I had sex was probably a month and half ago if I'm remembering correctly. I do not think I noticed too much of a difference in overall time, but I do remember having a completely different sensation upon penetration. I felt I had much more control and my brain wasn't firing on all cylinders trying to rush to get the job done. My theory about PE is that I have just trained my brain over the years to get the job done quickly. So since I reinforced that mechanism for so long I am expecting a long time before I see major impacts on that front. I can tell you that the sex felt much better for me and gave me much more hope that I was on the right track, its just going to take time. I know that was long but hopefully I shared something useful to you. Please feel free to throw any other questions my way and I will do my best to answer them accordingly.

  10. No. I've never had prostate problems.
    About the Colorado thing, though. In my particular case, I noticed it like immediately the day after I took started taking cold showers. Like, the connection seemed so strong I even told the urologist about it (and he just said laughed and said, "Yeah, don't believe cold showers are good for you just because you read it on the internet."). But, this could just be a coincidence. It's entirely possible that I already had it before the cold showers, and just didn't notice it. Also, it lingered after I stopped the cold showers and I was living in Savannah. But, still, it might have something to do with the cold if you are getting it in Colorado mountains and I got it after a cold shower.

    Also, in my case, I was totally fapping during this time and never thought to stop.
     
  11. Well I can report that after a week or two of stretching the sack is a lot looser giving me more room to hang.

    With 39 days without m the bruising has subsided. The cysts are still there but a lot less inflamed.

    My testicles are normally so high they left one will go up inside my body for a lot of the day and get squished around. The right one being a little lower only goes up if cold, during exercise or sex.

    Bought a ball stretching thing online which has just arrived made out of really squishy silicone or something. It’s comfortable to wear and others report can wear it all day so that should give them an all day gentle push down rather than the morning and night 2 minutes.

    I’ll see how it goes.

    Interesting, never thought about the temperature as I always figured that being in so many close and so close to my body that they never really got that cold, bit I guess its possible. I was also fapping throughout that time as well and never thought about it. Would you ever get relief from it if you fapped?

    I have never heard of such a thing, thanks for sharing your story, please keep us posted as to your progression.



    Today was rough, the dribble is really starting to take a toll on me, and the fact that it is so come and go. Flares up worse some days and isn't too bad others. I am really trying hard to keep my head up and tell myself that this is only temporary and I can get my reproductive system back to that of a normal 28 year old. But I am really starting to have doubts and its getting harder and harder to convince myself of this. I am staying active and running everyday, helps get my mind off of things. My wife is also a rock for me and I haven't been able to talk to her for the past few days so haven't been able to vent my frustrations. So I decided to do a quick vent here haha. I have also noticed that I still believe I am in a flatline. I have zero morning wood/erections except for the morning after orgasm (sex/WD). And my libido still feels very low. I can tell that I am getting more and more comfortable in my skin and overall happier with my life, but this is inhibiting that process. Cant wait for this storm to clear. Thanks for listening to my story everyone and pitching in, I truly truly appreciate it!

    Sounds strange to me. First thing that my doctor wanted from when I got symptoms of prostats were bacteria tests of urine, semen and urethra. Also, making a test doesn't mean giving giving medicines, so I don't understand your doctor's point of view.
     
  15. I really can't say, since the pain actually went away pretty quickly after it swelled up. The pain left, but the cyst stayed for awhile. Fapping certainly didn't do anything about the cyst, though.

    Sorry to hijack the thread, 31 days into nofap and ive had a dull ache all day near the anus, could hard mode cause prostatitis?
     
  17. Probably just your prostate full up of semen. Real sex or wet dream will sort it out

    I see, i had a hard time sleeping with it and a bit of fear as well that i could get an infection so i ended up just MO'ing in the middle of the night (no porn). Only took 3 or 4 minutes, it was definitely nofap related because the pain's gone. Im immediately back on the wagon, i will make a note of it in my journal, see how long it takes to crop up again, maybe next time I'll risk just ignoring the pain and see if my body can conjure up a wet dream. Would love some opinions.
