Tingling urethra, cold and burning testicles, erectile function affected, diarrhea. Have IBS

hi. i have a few symptoms. I was urinating frequently. i suspected an infection. but after sample at my clinic i was told it was negative. however i have also experienced an ache in my urethra . this was approx 10days ago. since i have had unprotected oral sex . this was too soon for any tests to be done at my clinic. maybe coincidence and unrelated BUT now my urethra is tingling . my testicles are cold but have a burning sensation. i DO also suffer with IBS , but its worth mentioning that the penis erictile function has been affected last 2/3 days since diarrhea has become bad and tingling of urethra (behind testicles) continues...

Hi,

You are a known case f IBS that irritable bowel syndrome means there is much anxiety and stress that you must be suffering from.
The unprotected oral sex can transmit oral bacteria to urethra and cause urethritis and related symptoms as you have and may show normal urine reports.
Hence I would advise you the following in such a situation:
To have a combination of antibiotic, Metronidazole.
Take plenty oral fluids.
The other symptoms like reduced erectile function and all can be due to guilt and hence once you come out of the psychological problems you will get okay.
Also needed is to take a proper treatment for IBS.
Control of stress, guilt and anxiety is the mainstay of management.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. T Chandrakant,
General Surgeon

I have had IBS for years, diarrhea, gas and bloating . About a year ago I injured my back, which resulted in two bulging discs. I had the standard sciatica with numbness, tingling and burning down both legs. It resolved with therapy. In the last two months my back pain has returned, at first just heavy pressure when I awoke, some bowel changes, more constipation. In the last 2-3 weeks the sciatica has returned pain below my knees, numbness and tingling, sharp stabbing pains in my buttocks and the development of pencil thin stools and inability to evacuate completely. As far as injury, I was doing some weeding a month or so ago, pulled on a weed and fell, otherwise no other reason for the exacerbation.

This week had symptoms of severe stomach cramps followed by diarrhea. At the time I was sitting on the toilet I felt light headed and broke out in a cold sweat that actually made my shirt damp. This episode lasted for about 15 to 20 minutes and then I was fine. Could this be IBS, if so where does the sweating and the light headedness come from

hi. im 19 years old and am having some problems with urination. I have the urge to go almost constantly and when i finish i feel like i need to go again immediately. I also have constant dribbling and i dont know how to tell if it is just urine or whether it is some sort of discharge. The tip of my urethra and a couple centimetres in is always wet. I had a urine test done with a dipstick at the doctors and then again at the walk in centre and they didn t find any problems. I have also been under a great deal of stress and have felt a bit depressed over the last few weeks. I don t know if this has contributed to it. Sorry for the long post but it is getting annoying now and just want to solve the problem Thanks
