Age 30. 5'9". 169 pounds. Pain and swelling of testicles 3 weeks ago with pain in abdomen and kidney area. I was seen by an emergency room doctor who said it was an infection and gave two weeks of doxycycline which I took as directed and finished. Within three days of completing this prescription, the pain returned and another urine sample showed high levels of protein. Tests came back negative for STD's.
