Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Or any urinary symptoms?

No, but i have a pain in my lower back, not sure if they a related

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Pain in the testes radiates to the lower back as well.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Customer:

The whole

Customer:

it comes and goes

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I think that the number one diagnosis to consider here is orchitis which is inflammation or infection of the testes.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This can happen even in people who are monogamous.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You may require an antibiotic for this.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Antibiotics in the form of ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily for 10 days.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would recommend that you should contact your doctor for an examination and possible prescription of antibiotics and further tests like a urine analysis if required.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you following me?

Customer:

Yes thanks

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Any more questions?

Just one, would moving box's and furniture have anything to do with it

Most likely not.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Did it happen after moving furniture?

Customer:

well i have been doing a lot of work in our new house,

Customer:

is the infection a sexually transmitted one

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Since you are monogamous highly unlikely to be std

Customer:

Ok so i'll make a app with doctor

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes I think that is the right thing to do. Meanwhile you can take something like ibuprfen for the pain.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

ibuprofen*
