Question: The last two times I've ejaculated, I've experienced a dull but significant groin and lower back pain. Ejaculation or voiding myself does not hurt. I am healthy, no back pain history, no meds, BP 125/80, 52yrs. The pain goes away after about a week, but returns within an hour of ejaculation. Recent PSE was May and was normal.
Doctor gave me Sulfa in case it was epididymitis, but no help.

Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query.
To me, it looks like inflammation in the prostate or seminal vesicles.
Things that would help are
1.     Urine culture to choose the right antibiotic. If urine culture is sterile, then semen culture may be needed. Ultrasound scan is needed to look for residual urine.
2.     Antibiotics for at least one month.
3.     Alpha blockers.
4.     Stool softeners.
5.     Regular sex or masturbation, once the pain settles a bit.
6.     To keep Blood pressure under control.
7.     Muscle relaxants.
Please discuss with your doctor about these issues, get tests done, take appropriate treatment and get well soon.
Hope this helps, kindly get back for doubts if any.

I was given alfuzosin for problems with enlarged prostate. Upon taking the med, I began to experience what I thought might be flu like symptoms and went to me primary care doctor and was given and antibiotic; which I took all of and did not get any relief. I have Myasthenia Gravis and selecting an antibiotic is not so easy, but upon a second trip to my primary doctor, I was given another Rx, took all of it but seems to not get any better. At that point, I looked at possible side effects related to taking alfuzosin and found things like fever, sore throat, ear ache, pain in my chest and stopped the alfuzosin. My symptoms improved. Since I could not contact my urologist over the holiday weekend, does this sound like a reasonable course of action on my part?
