chronic epididymitis - cured (Page 1)

Hey, i'm 21 and have had chronic epididymitis for over a year. Nothing has healed me because it was never an infection to begin with. I read online that people have taken a combination of fenugreek and fennel pills and it has worked wonders on their epididymitis. I have been using it for a few days and it honestly is making me feel much better. I will post a follow up in a a week or too to let you all know if it is really working or not. But if you have nothing better to do, I would recommend that you start taking these herbal supplements. It's worth a try and it is the only thing that I have ever heard that helps. Good luck.

Epididymitis
I was diagnosed with epididymitis and later on also with varicoceles. I was treated with antibiotics for about 3 months at different stages of that pain. Nothing seemed to work and I thought that I had to survive with it as a chronic disease. I always had also disconfort in my inguinal area. By myself I started using inguinal belts fearing a probable hernia. By now it is almost seven months and I don't feel disconfort in my inguinal area, testicles or simptoms of ephydidimitis. It desapeared without any apparent treatment other than the inguinal belts. Please check for possible hernias. Thanks to God I feel good after that time. I hope my experience helps someone.

Hi guys,
I really feel your pain. I was diagnosed with epididymitis 6 years ago and suffered from the inflammations and pain for about 2 and 1/2 years. Several urologists just assumed that I had sexual relationships out of the wedlock (it was not the case!) and prescribed several bouts of antibiotics to no avail... Then, I finally traveled to the hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and they diagnosed an enlarged prostate that was exerting pressure on an internal nerve. A simple course of alpha-blockers (Flomax), for about two months, took care of the problem! The pain and inflammation totally went away...
I was so angry that I had to live with this for almost 3 years given how easy the solution was, just because most doctors are ignorant of the origins of this problem!
Please have your doctors try and prescribe you alpha-blockers: I never have had any problems since then...
I hope this helps: please post back if you tried alpha blockers and they worked: I would like to know if an enlarged prostate (or similar inflammation of internal muscles) is a common cause of epididymitis and be able to help more people...

I recently took saw palmetto and it was working great until i went on a masturbation binge. I went from taking 2 pain killers a day to having 0 pain but now some of the pain is back. So if anybody tries Saw Palmetton make sure you refrain from sex and masturbating for atleast a month or the pain will come back. There is also some other herbal drugs that could work pretty good. Im gonna check the net.

Damn, when you punch the clown, you really punch the clown. Flying solo has never caused me any pain. The trick is to switch up your grips. There's standard, euro, rodeo, rodeo death grip, stranger, euro stranger, socket wrench, throttle grip, full throttle grip and train whistle. What gets me is when my wife and I make sweet, sweet love. She and I both like it with her on top. Of course the unavoidable collison of her butt and against the "twins" can irrate them. From there it seem I'll have a epi-relapse. When I take the wheel I work it so I'm not scrambling my eggs and still putting in an honest days work. Saw palmetto works great plus if you keep up with the water, the fluid amount you'll be flinging is like porn star amounts. The water is key. No kidding, I drink 12 glasses a day and most of it comes out of the tip of my dude piston. You wanna know what's 6'6", works in IT and comes in quarts? ME. Smile I often wondered if I could do spin art on the walls of a smaller room. Hope you dudes bring it all together. It's a mother walking around when your kiwis be painin' ya. Saw Palmetto, load up heavy on it. Also to the guy thinking about having his plums whittled on and having the epididimis removal surgery. Get the full details on that. The sucess rate is really low. Also that's real interesting about the enlarged prostate. I'm going to have that looked at. I understand the sailors of in Asia get whats called a Saigon Sweet Plum Squeeze. Apparently the working girls over there have very small hands and they are able to work them into your chili spiget. Just as those guys bust, the girl applies a flat, even pressure to the prostate and it drains it to nothing. Stuff comes out you didn't even know was in there. But after one of those, you're like totally loose for like a month. I married otherwise I'd look for one of those stateside. Peace out.

I have been taking saw palmetto for almost two years. That herb is good for the prostate and the male genital area in general. Bobbyakjkjk are you going to go back on saw palmetto and not have sex for a while. It seems very strange that you were feeling okay with saw palmetto and then you started having the symptoms after masturbating. If anything saw palmetto was going to help you with that at least that's the intent. Are you sure you didn't do anything else that may have caused you the pain to return? Anyone else has input on this? Or any other treatments that you guys have used successfully for this?

Just finished water fasting for 2 days a couple weeks ago. My balls where a lot softer afterwards and felt better. I think a 5 day water fast will work even better. Ill probably try 5 days in September 2011. Would definately recommend giving it a try. You're probably best to start off with only a 1 or 2 day fast and than work your way up to longer.

Hi Bobbyakjkjk, JamminJim and the rest of the men here. Have you guys had more luck with this? I was feeling okay for about 3 to 4 months taking my natural supplements that included saw palmetto, quercertin with bromelin, grapefruit seed extract etc. Like 8 or 10 days ago, I had sex with my girlfriend we did it numerous times that day I felt okay. Then we did it again a few days after (like 3 times) and two days after I started having the discomfort/tenderness in my right epididymis and scrotum coming back. Do you guys think it was the sex? we did several sexual positions the one where she was on top and was moving may have caused some irritation because her butt hitting/squeezing my testicles. Any advice? If one is to have sex what positions should one do? I guess avoid being on the bottom. Any other treatments that have worked for you guys? Should we not have sex at all? the doctors have said in the past to me that it is good to have sex to clean the tubes. Please help me. thanks

hi magic7508 do a water fast. It worked good. Also look up Dr Mercola video on U tube about Saw Palmetto. He sells a top quality Saw Palmetto on his site and i would recommend switching to his product. My balls feel even better after switching to his Saw Palmetto. Ive had this for over a year and this is the best my balls have felt.

I am almost 18 years old and I've had this for over 3-4 years and it keeps comming back whenever it wants. Today it started again. I went to the urologist obviously and I took antibiotics but the fact was that it was not an infection and hopefully I've not had any sexual relationship because otherwise they'd have said that was the cause.
I cannot cope with this anymore.. It doesn't benefit my studies at all and the doctor doesn't know anything! They've done me uncountable studies... all you can imagine and nothing strange has been found!
Please reply!

Hi all,

I developed chronic epididymitis about six months ago, and after a few different treatments, I managed to find a fairly simple solution - this may not work for all, but I thought it'd be worth posting just in case.

History: six months back, I woke up with a sharp pain in my left testes, the pain persisted so I went to a G.P. and was diagnosed with epididymitis, and put on antibiotics - I went through two courses, each time the pain subsided, then returned, finally I went to see a consultant and was told that I had a small cyst, and that the best treatment was to leave it to get better on its own - I was prescribed anti-inflammatories, told to take hot baths, wear supportive underwear etc.

Six months later, the pain was still there - during this time, I'd been to another consultant for a second opinion who said that there was no cyst, and hypersensitivity was the cause of the pain in the epidydimis. This pain was a mix of sharp severe pains, and more gnawing, aching pains, that came at irregular intervals, made it difficult to sleep, or sit comfortably.

Treatment: After trying various vitamins/dietary changes with no real impact, I figured that there was probably no pathological reason for the pain - that is, any infection/damage that might have caused it in the beginning would have long since healed up, so the persistant pain could possibly be nerve-related.

So I started massaging the area directly around my groin, in the crook where the upper thigh connects to the pubic area. I have a slightly tender area there from playing badminton (it puts a lot of stress on the groin area due to lunging) - I thought that perhaps a nerve had been trapped, or damaged somehow further up/along, and somehow the pain signals in this area were being transmitted further along, so that the pain was actually felt in the testes.

My mum (who's a doctor) supported this theory, saying that nerves have a tree-like structure, and by introduing input further up the trunk, you can relieve pain in the branches further down.

The sort of massage I tried was quite vigorous - I'd tried gently massaging the area during the previous six months, and that had made little impact, so this time, I used the flat palm of my hand, pressed it firmly into the flesh, and rubbed it back and forth quickly (6-7 times per second) - the firmness was important, so that instead of just rubbing the skin on the surface, I was shifting the tissue underneath when I moved my hand. I'd do this for about half a minute, or once my hand started to get tired, and I'd do it about half a dozen times a day - or whenever the pain arose.

After about three days of this, the sharp pains stopped. The dull, aching pain persisted, but at this point, after about a week or so of doing this, the dull pains have largely subsided as well (though not completely) There are still twinges now and then, but I'm about 95% better than I've been at any time during the last six months, and the pain is continuing to subside.

Like I said - not sure if this will work for anyone else, but give it a go, and see if it works. Good luck guys!

This REALLY WORKS!!

I woke up one morning feeling like someone was continuously kicking me in the right testicle. My doctor prescribed antibiotic pills ... of course ... and the pain eased, but I sensed some of it was still there ... and sure enough, it started coming back.

Rather than becoming an antibiotic addict, I started searching the Net and found *this*, and whenever I feel like something is coming back down there, I do this, and it disappears.

I personally don't think it's a nerve. I think it is poor blood circulation ... possibly with age or too much sitting ... in front of a computer. Smile

It's not caused by sexual inactivity, either - this may be a different circulation system. I think getting the blood circulating helps clean out the infection. (Think of a fetid swamp vs. a running brook.)

If your doctor prescribes antibiotics go with it ... to attack the infection ... but do this hard, vigorous massage in the arch between your scrotum and your leg.

And THANKS, Tolstoy! Smile

Hot baths? I wish I could have an ice one... because that helps to "desinflame" (don't know how to say the word in english) the testicle. But my question is: do you only feel pain? Or is your testicle inflamed as well?
Because in my case it gets inflamed along with the pain.

Well, but then you are in the wrong topic.
By definition epididymitis is an inflammation of the epididymis. What you had was something else.

Now my testicle is still inflamed and a bit hard but I don't feel any pain... it will get smaller but after epididymitis came it's normal that it kept big. Please don't recommend hot baths because this makes things worse. I don't know what you had but it is not epididymitis. We have to use a lot of ice and cool showers.

Hi. Are you sure about hot baths? As a remedy treatment advice, on web it says is good to take hot sits baths. I had a theory that hot can increase inflamation, but wasn;t sure. Why are you sure of this?
