Intense sharp stabbing pains in my lower left side, lower right side and very sharp pains from my rectum to just above my penis shaft that makes it feel like I am sitting on a spike. These pains come and go but when they come on they are quite painful. What could be causing this pain and what should I tell my doctor?

Hello, and thank you for your medical question on e Health Forum.

From the available history, your symptoms seem to be due to prostatitis or due to a urethral stricture.

For proper diagnosis you may need a urinalysis and a pelvic ultrasound.

You might consider to consult a urologist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

I hope this helps.
