Hi, im a 16.5 year old circumcized male who has dealing with multiple problems for over a year and a half. First, at age 15, i delt with on and off back pain in the summer, which got so bad i had to sit out of soccer. Then i tried playing through basketball which aggravated the problem terribly. I learned threw an mri, i had edema on L5 vertebrae on the right side. A week after the diagnosis, i experienced genital pain which i ignored because i didn't want anyone knowing. I was put in a back brace for 8 weeks. Throughout the 8 weeks, the genital pain was constant, and was just aggrivated with urination, and ejaculation; but easily sustainable. After the 8 weeks of bracing i started physical therapy in which was very successful, i did pt for 3 months, and my physical therpaist and i believed that i was ready for basketball camp. I went to bball camp and after 2 days, i experienced the same pain i did before bracing my back. I decided to brace it again, and as i did the pain eased, and in the 4th week the pain was absent. My doctor told me a full recovery of edema of the bone takes 6 weeks so i continued to brace, and as i did the pain in the back turned into pain in the gluteus medius, and the quadratus (both on the right side only). After 10 weeks of bracing i decided the brace was making it worse, and i took it off. Meanwhile, it was fall, and the genital pain was about the same as it was previously. I have been brace free for 2 months now,and ever since about 2-3 weeks ago i have been experiencing chronic gentital pain worse than ever. I have been to 2 different urologists over 10 times, treated repeaditively for prostate infections. I have the same exact symtpoms as PNE (pudendal nerve entrapment) as of 2 weeks ago. BEfore that i just experienced burning with urination. I am in so much pain i have to stay home from school and i am constantly taking vicodin and sitz baths. I have pain radiating down my left leg from my penis to testicles all the way to my anus. It hurts to fart, ejaculate, pee, poop, everything. I dont have a frequent urination, and the urologist think it is part of my back problem. however the back problem, as i stateed previously is on my right side, and the genital and leg pain is on my left side. Do you think this is PNE? Do you think my back and genital problem are related, becuase both have yet to be solved? HELP. Additional info: ive had 3 mris, 3 xrays, a bone scan, a cat scan, and the thing pregnant woment get to look at their baby to look at my bladder. The genital pain is 100 times worse than the back pain now, but previously before this month, the back pain was always worse and the genital pain was never this bad.
