Also I lift weights and wondering from over workin that area might have something to do but the pain is also in my groins and it gets worse when I sit down for a while.

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

I have read your query in detail. The symptoms you have described are more likely to be symptoms of muscles strain and it not seems to be related to your drinks.

To get relief from the pain and for quick healing:

1. Do hot fomatation at the site.
2. Apply local anti-inflammatory gel 2-3 times a day.
3. Take anti-inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and local swelling or inflammation.
4. Do not lift weight or try to do exercise that involve painful muscles. Give proper time for it to heal.

You should try local pain killer sprays. It does not seem much serious issue but pain should be controlled. There are good medicines which can be used for this purpose, your clinician would know a suitable match for you after examination.

I hope this answers your query. I will be available for further guidance if you needed.
Please accept my answer in case you do not have further queries.

Wishing you good health...

Thank you

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query again.

Symptoms you described above might occur due to pudendal nerve irritation and not due to your drinks taken on sat and sunday. Irritation of the pudendal nerve may result in sensory symptoms in any or all areas it supplies and spasms of the muscles supplied by it.

Extended sitting at work and frequent long drives are among the causes of pudendal nerve compression ,so I advice you to avoid prolong sitting in one posture. Take some breake during your work and do pelvic floor exersices for strengthening of muscles to improve core and lower extremity balance and stability.

In most cases these are well managed by good physical therapy.I would suggest getting this evaluated by your doctor for detailed examination so that proper management could be taken.

If you have any questions I will be happy to answer.
Please close the query if you have no other questions.

Wishing you good health...

Regards.

Hello sir. I am suffering from erectile dysfunction what medicine should i take to cure Is this diease cureble

doctor1 MD

Hello
I have a lack of libido and don't get erection easily. And I tend to lose it during sex. The other thing is I noticed that I started to lose sensation in my penis. This has been on going for almost a month now. Every time I get erection I feel bloated and big pressure in my stomach that I feel pressing on my abdomen making me lose the erection. I am constipated and bloated all the time. The problem started with a pain in my lower back - which I still have but its subsiding, and pain in my testicles that keeps shifting from one side to another ( I still have). I saw a urologist, he performed ultrasound on my testicles and said everything is alright. He said It's probably a pinched nerve in my back. I am taking 800 mg ibuprofen, and I have black stool. My question is:
1- Is the erection problem related to the pinched nerve in my back because I might have a Pudendal Nerve Entrapment as I read online?
2- or is it because I might have gastrointestinal bleeding because of taking 800 mg ibuprofen, which I am suspecting, but no evidence except constipation, bloating , and black stool?
3- or it other problems related to the prostate or kidney stones?
