Doctor :  
if you are not responding this medications you can request your doctor to change the medications
Doctor :  
also you need to take some pain killers, antiinflammatories
User :   yea i am takin motrin but its rediculous that seems like nothing is helping me
Doctor :   ok

User :   and im worried about the fact that i felt like i was ejaculating and nothing was coming out is that bad?
Doctor :  
you can put some cold compression regularly to the scrotum to relieve the pain
Doctor :   have you undergone any investigations

Doctor :  
if the pain is severe, steroids can be given
Doctor :   are you there
Doctor :  
are you there
User :   yes im here
User :   what you mean investigations?
Doctor :   like urine examination, doppler ultrasound
User :   yes both

User :   that i have epididymitus-orchitis
Doctor :  
ok
Doctor :  
if you are not responding you need to take steroids
Doctor :   or the injection is given to the area

User :   could it be anything else besides epididymitis?
Doctor :  
no
Doctor :  
they have diagnosed it right
Doctor :  
but it will take time for recovery
Doctor :  
you need to continue both Motrin and antibiotics
User :   ok, you just never answered why i would ejaculate and nothing came out?
Doctor :   since there is infection and inflammation the cells which produce semen will not be formed enough which is called dry orgasm
User :   oh ok because i did have preseminal fluid
Doctor :  
so you are not getting semen
Doctor :  
yes
User :   oh ok
User :   my right teste hangs very low why is that?
Doctor :   it is very common because normally the left testicle is at high position than the right
User :   well my right is the one with the infection and since ive had it it hangs very low and to the back more
Doctor :   ok

Doctor :  
that is quite normal no need to worry about it
Doctor :  
it will settle over time
User :   ok well thank you for your help
Doctor :   are you there

Doctor :  
are you there
