    So for the past week my left nuts been a little sore and I've kinda been tired.
    Do you think both symptoms are related?

    I have a doctores appointment next week but was just wondering if you guys had any thoughts.

    The only relationship I can think of would be some sort of physical activity that could have caused both like: riding a horse, diving a lot, running too much, wrestling, lifting too much weight, playing too strenuously and so forth. My left nut is susceptible to being sore after such strenuous activities???

    Do you have any muscle pain in your groin? Do you have a history of kidney stones? It could be anything.

    Dear friend,

    It is indeed possible that the two issues can be connected. If your left testicle is tender to the touch and bothers you more when you are standing than sitting there is a chance that you have contracted epididymitits which is nothing to play around with. If that is indeed the case you will need a strong course of antibiotic medicine sooner rather than later.

    Make sure your doctor's appointment is with a qualified urologist and not a GP. The problem can often be generated by prostate bacteria and so your doctor will want to milk the prostate to obtain a sample of your seminal fluid for microscopic examination.

    Epididymitis left untreated it can lead to very serious problems, including castration on the side of the lesion. Don't play around with advice from a web page. Tell you dr. you cant wait till next week.

    It could be a lot of things.....the ones i can think of off the top of my head are

    1. injury
    2. torsion - testicle twisting on itself.....may twist and then release so blood flow is not obstructed
    3. hernia - dull pressure feeling
    4. epididymitis - pain decreases when you elevate the testicles
    5. varicocele - feels like "a bag of worms", you're feeling the dilated veins
    6. hydrocele - fluid accumulated in part called tunica vaginalis
    7. spermatocele - cyst full of dead sperm
    8. testicular cancer - usually painless or symptoms of dull aching
    9. orchitis - do you have mumps? doubtful tho
    10. infection - anything down there can get infected just like anywhere else in your body
    11. Kidney stone - unlikely bc pain is usually 10/10 located in your lower back and radiates to your nuts

    you also feel tired, do you have a fever? How long is the pain present? What makes it better, what makes it worse? What have you done for it? What do YOU think it is? Does the pain move anywhere? Describe the pain.....
    Have you been with a new partner lately? Is he/she clean? Any history of stds? Have you had anal sex? Did you receive oral sex and were accidentally bitten?

    I dont know what the guy above is talking about, you DO NOT NEED to see a urologist, they will be no more capable of diagnosing epididymitis than a GP.....I am no huge supporter of GPs for many things but its my honest opinion you dont need to see a specialist right away. Physical exam, maybe a couple tests will show if there is an infection and its not a "strong course of antibiotic", its a pretty common antibiotic given for 1-3 days depending on the dose. If its prostatitis, which is very doubtful actually if those are your only symptoms then the antbiotic is stronger, however you wont need to milk to prostate because prostatitis is very tender to palpation (touching).

    Again, im not offering medical advice, just giving you information that youd be able to look up on your own

    its medical information, not advice. It might sound like splitting hairs but the law is pretty clear. The only true advice i gave is to start with the GP and he will refer to a specialist if its not something simple. As for the rest of it, its pretty much information anyone could google.....the only way i would be allowed to offer advice would be if i physically examined a patient but never over the internet

    Usually only sore when I get a hard on.

    So basically when my balls tighten up it gets uncomfortable. Very, uncomfortable.

    Got my doctors appointment moved to tommorow.

    Ok,

    So I'm off to get some blood tests in the next few days.

    The Doc is pretty sure it's an infection in my testicle but wants some blood tests before he gives me, en quote "a high attack of anti-biotics".

    But he is does not think me being tired is related. My blood tests are to check for anemia, diabetes, cancer, and iron deficiency. He is kind of worried though, I guess my cholesterol is kind of high too. So he ordered more Cholesterol tests too.

    I'll keep you all posted.

    Good luck with the tests. Hopefully, it's nothing serious and can be dealt with quickly and painlessly. We got your back!

    I have had a sore left nut this week I put it down to awkward lifting and straining, it has slowly gone over a few days. But it didnt half ache.

    I had an enlarged left testicle and had an ultrasound done. It ended up being a hydrocele. I have no pain. It feels normal, but bigger. A hytrocele is just water.I have had bladder cancer and my prostrate removed so a hytrocele was welcome to me. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Let us know..
