Question: Hello-
I'm hoping you can help with a private manner. I have had a terrible cough/cold this week. Two days while going to the bathroom, I seemed to shift/cough my lest testicle .... causing an imbalance, almost feels like one sac vs. two sometimes. Will this take care of itself over time ? It doesn't really hurt, but feels weird.

Brief Answer:
You need to get it reviewed by a surgeon and have an ultrasound too

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible.

First of all, it is sad to know what you had been experiencing lately. Based on the history you have shared, it can be trivial thing like simple muscle sprain to complicated matters like torsion. It's good that it's not painful and only causing mild discomfort but coughing or such matters may exacerbate the twist or torsion of internal structures.

It's better to get it reviewed by a surgeon for any new onset testicular hernia or some hydroceole. It's better to have an ultrasound of both testes too. If pain sets in analgesics like acetaminophen can be used.

Meanwhile avoid over exertions or lifting heavy weights and take small steps during walks preferably.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.

I was diagnosed with a sprained ankle yesterday. I am on crutches and using a splint along with pain medication. The medication is not enough, and the swelling continues to go up shortly after removal of ice. The foot has been tingling off and on all day. I am wondering if I should return to the ER or what.

i twisted my left knee today when i bent down awkwardly. Had sharp pain under and just to the inside of my knee cap. when I tried to put weight on it, It felt like something was out of place. I stood there for about a minute and it went back to normal. no pain and i was able to walk fine. About 2 hours later it happened again. Same exact thing. Now there is some swelling/ puffyness just below and to the inside of my knee cap. I am Iceing and have it elevated. Does this sound like a sprain?
