about 2 weeks ago I had a shooting pain around the top of my leg and hip on the right side during sex. This was followed by a couple more over the course of the next few days along with a constant mild cramping sensation also on my right side. After the cramping sensation lasted a week I consulted a Dr. at an urgent care facility. He said I strained a deep stomach muscle probably from shoveling or digging my latter out of the ice. ( those were the activities I had done in the days before this began. After refraining from sexual activity and as many other activities I could over this past week it seemed to have gotten better. I began sexual activity again last week and last sunday after sex I had a different kind of pain in my right testicle and ever since a mild ache and minor discomfort. So I've refrained from any activity since figuring maybe I was over doing it or was connected to what ever strain I've done to myself. Again it seemed like it was getting alittle bit better but after 4 feet of snowfall I had no choice but to shovel out today and the discomfort in my right testicle is like day one again with a tired kind of ache in the inside top of my right leg right next to my testicle. I would be grateful to hear your thoughts

Brief Answer: Rest Detailed Answer: Hi As your doctor said you have sprained a muscle probably at the back. This leads to typical pain as you describe. You have to strictly avoid works like shovelling or lifting heavy weights. Take total rest with some pain killers. Dont lift anything or bend too much. Give rest to your back. Regards Dr. Mahesh Koregol
