Hello everyone! About 10 days ago I felt a sudden tenderness/pain under my left nut. First of all, I'm a 36 year-old man that has a previous diagnosis of "genital Herpes" back in 1993. I've been on preventative meds in the past like valtrex but over the past 3-4 years I've been taking no meds at all for the herpes.
I'm married & my wife too has contacted genital herpes because at the time of our initial relationship I didn't know of having this sexually transmitted disease due to no real visible symptoms. I was finally diagnosed a while after we were married which wasn't a pleasant time indeed. She too has used Valtrex at times in the past as well.
The pain/tenderness I have/had was mild to moderate but over the past couple days has lessened a bit. I have felt somewhat nauseated at times with some pain going up into my stomach. I don't feel any lumps/swelling down low but I can put pressure & get a mild tenderness/pain still after about 10 days. I've had less energy lately & it's mildly uncomfortable when sitting down but not too bad right now.
Now, I've studied a lot about genital herpes & there's no known possible serious problems after diagnosis. However, this current tenderness/pain has never been there before at any time of an outbreak of genital herpes. I do have usually some tenderness around my upper groin with an outbreak but nothing like that has happened. I know my father has a history of hernias but I've never had any type hernia. This is the first problem of this moderate pain that I've had period of the testicles other than the herpes outbreaks. What might be causing this type tenderness/pain coming from the testicles? My wife & I do have sex regularly & she sometimes gets yeasts infections. She also gets some tenderness in her vagina as well. Could I have contacted an infection from her of some kind? Thanks & help is appreciated.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I am mildly burning when & shortly after urinating as well.
My symptoms have lessened over the past couple days! I'm beginning to think this is directly related to my herpes infection. Although, the pain down low along with on & off nausea hasn't been this bad since the initial infection back in 1993.
I know the tenderness part always come with an outbreak. My outbreaks are usually pretty mild with the herpes & over the past 4-5 years only maybe 2-3/year with usually no sores or maybe one small one. I usually only get the tenderness in the groin & maybe some fatigue with itching somewhat but pretty mild lately. I know the pain down low I can't remember having before plus the feeling shooting a little into my stomach is what has concerned me.
I also know that a few days before these other symptoms started I did have a small outbreak with itching & one little sore located in my pubic hair area. These other symptoms began in about the 4th-5th day after noticing my minor outbreak so this could be related to the outbreak but worse this time around. My wife & I had quit taking meds for herpes in the past 4 years or so because they were lessening & also minor. What are your guys opinions on this? Thanks!
Hello guys I've just been diagnosed with genital herpes and I didn't know I had it for over 5 yrs the testicle pain I believe is completely normal due to the virus especially during an outbreak I guess the more you think of the pain the more it's there I just let myself forget about it, it sucks but life gos on .....I hope they make a cure soon
