Relation between Smoking Marijuana and epididymitis

I have a question about epididymitis and marijuana. What is the relation between the two? My epididymitis is on the way out and I would really like to be able to smoke again, but when I tried before it seemed to make the epididymitis worse. Is this a temporary thing that where it only feels worse while I am high? Or am I damaging myself and setting back the healing? If it's the first one I can live with the increased pain, as I suffer from panic attacks that sometimes only marijuana can calm (I have prescription medication as well but sometimes it does not cut it). So overall my question is: what is the relationship epididymitis and pot, and more specifically will smoking it do any actual damage/slow or set back my healing?

Marijuana can directly not be related to epididymitis but is known to cause destruction to testis which can also cause low sperm count. Do get examined to rule out possible varicocele, do a semen test as well to find out any damage to sperm. Do not use Marijuana in any other way as prescribed by your Doctor as it has a lot of ill effects as well. Keep well hydrated. Eat healthy. Exercise daily. Stay stress free and fit.

i've had the exact same problem for about the past year now. i smoked weed almost every day for 8 years prior to my case of epididymitis and never had a single pain issue with it. but now whenever i even vaporize, as the high starts to hit me, i can feel some of my hip, leg, and butt muscles starting to spasm... i do specific stretches that can help, but ultimately it takes away from so much of the pleasure i used to get out of this flower...
