Question: I have some pain in the testicles. Not real severe. Started during the night kind of like they had been pinched because of sleeping position. Maybe some dehydration on my part but have increased my water intake today. Have had some slight dribbles but mostly very very slight and not real frequent.

Brief Answer:
Possible Diagnosis:epididymo-orchitis

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you for the query at HealthcareMagic.

Pain in the testis and lower abdomen require further investigation to rule out epididymo-orchitis ,which is the inflammation of epididymus (tube in the backside of testis) and testis. It may be due to spread of infection from bladder (urinary tract infection). Epididymo-orchitis require treatment with antibiotics.
Further investigations like urine analysis and culture is required to make a definite diagnosis. I recommend that you consult Primary care Physician for further evaluation and management.
Meanwhile continue drinking adequate amount of fluids and Paracetamol (if not allergic or medical conditions contraindicating it's use) for pain.

Hope I was able to answer your question
Please feel free to address any more concerns
Regards,
Dr.Lekshmi

My coworker complained today that her left arm was really sore and was having trouble pickup up her iced tea, tonight she called and said her arm was still extremely sore and that her left leg was swelling . I ve suggested she go to ER, but she s not sure she should. Should I continue to encourage her to seek medical help rather than wait to see her primary care physician tomorrow???

I have vertigo with a retracted ear drum. How does this happen? Over the past few years I have gone to my primary care and Ent with complaints about my ear leaking. They did not see anything. It would literally drain out. Now I have a bad case of vertigo since last Thursday and my primary care said I have a retracted ear drum. He put me on a steroid and sudafed and afrin . Said if its not better by Wednesday to go back o the Ent. What do you think?
