Hi - I am a 20 year old male who

Hi - I am a 20 year old male who has been having a problem with urinating since my infection (Epididymo-orchitis). I have seen 6 different GPs and have all checked my testicles and all said they feel fine. I have 4 cysts in the testicles however they cause a small amount of pain and I wouldn't say frequently either so I am not worried about them.

Problems: Mild pain in urethra and I can feel the pain more when I am getting erect (not fully). I have to massage the shaft to release more urine and pulling foreskin back over the penis head does help release a lot more . There is a slight decrease in urine flow and it does feel like I have urine stuck inside the urethra or it wont allow me to fully empty and it stops inside the shaft.

Regarding the antibiotics I have taken.

1 week of Doxycycline for Epididymo-orchitis which did not do anything for it
2 weeks of Doxycycline for Epididymo-orchitis which did relieve the common symptoms like the red, hot testicles and pain in testicles.
However since then I have struggled with peeing properly
I recently ( 3 weeks ago) was told by my last GP to go and have STD tests (Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HIV and Syphilis) all came back clear.
Also had the swob test done and she found a few puss cells inside urethra which she then prescribed me with another week of doxycycline she was certain this would get rid of pain and the difficulty peeing :( So at this point I have had 4 weeks of Doxycycline. While on the recent weeks antibiotics after the STD check I did feel a bit better while peeing I felt a slight bit of control and was able to walk out of the bathroom quicker but not sure if that was just me.

I would love a response to this as I really am finding it difficult. I have recently started up running a couple times a week as I felt I need to do some exercise to see if this changes anything. Especially as I am a Uni student and studying sport.

Hi I m a 40 year old mother of 2 who has been battling hives/rash that started over 6 months ago. It first started in my inner thigh where I thought I was just allergic to my sanitary pad but it progressively gotten worse down my thighs, now my arm pit, upper/inner arm and forearm. I have been taking zyrtec but recently it has gotten so bad I read online that someone took Zantac for hives along with an antihistimine. H1 receptors (antihistamines treat H1 receptors) and H2 receptors (zantac treats H2 receptors). It has helped but I still sometime wake out of my sleep with the itch from hell on my arms and back. Once I start scratching, hives/red bumps appear I scratch. What should I do? In my 20 s, I had painful hives and took benedryl religiously and went to the doctor. The doc gave me meds and after taking them, never got another hive again until now....please help...any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also I have no idea what medicine he gave me 20 years ago that made them go away permanently!!!!

Hi. I adopted a rescued 10 year old male neutered maltese a few weeks ago. He was easily potty trained to use the doggie door . The issue we have is his extreme aggression [?] , growling, snarling, lunging, biting and continuous barking whenever any one comes into my bedroom and/or near my bed. He has totally claimed my king size bed as his own and He will not let anyone near the bed. Even if the person stops at the door and does not enter the room he goes off.. He does it to me also if I just walk near the bed; I am not afraid of him , but it is extremely annoying and wears on my nerves. And he does not look at all like my cute endearing little boy. If company does come he will stay in the bedroom right on the area where I sleep at night and not come out. I feel it may be a way of protecting me, but think it may be territorial aggression, or fear induced aggression??? He was at the shelter for 5 months in a cage and they had gotten him from the pound before that. He has the run of the house but generally stays on my bed, even if I am in the kitchen making food or anything, but he watches every move I make and needs to know where I am at all times. I can calm him down somewhat by rubbing both of his ears and telling him I love him and talking in a calm loving manner. What do you think is going on and How can I break him of this? Is it possible? I did buy a citronella scented spray bark collar , but have not used it yet , [for his constant loud barking when he is acting the this way]. Please help. I have had lots of dogs in my life [I m 71 years old] but nothing like this. Thank you. Sarah
