“I went to the doctor about 2 months ago becuase I had a dull ache in my testicles/groi/legs. He checked my testicles for cancer and said everything was fine. I still get the dull ache in those areas and I get really sore and tired as the day goes on. Sometimes if I’m on my feet for a lot I’ll actually get a sharp shooting pain in my groin area if I stand a certain way(if I put my weight on one leg a certain way). The werid thing is after I go to sleep, I wake up the next morning with no pain. But everyday after a few hours it comes back. I also notice I only have half the energy I had 6 months ago, I can acutally sleep 12 hours a night without a problem and sometimes it a struggle to stay up past 9pm. I went to my doctor again a month ago complaining that I was always so tired, but they said it could be anything and I should get more sleep. The only other weird thing that has happened is the pubic hair that is on my testicles is turning white/yellow at the ends. It almost looks like it’s dying or something. I know I should bring this up to my doctor, but I’m afraid he’s going to think I’m just crazy and it’s all in my head. Please help.”
A: Unfortunately since we are health educators (not doctors), and are unfamiliar with your medical history there is no way we could accurately diagnose what you are experiencing. Since you are still having pain and fatigue, it would be advisable that you consult your health care provider once again. If you are unsatisfied with his or her response, a second opinion would be in order. It is important know all symptoms that you are experiencing to accurately assess your condition, so if there is anything you notice that concerns you, it is always worth mentioning to your health care provider. Good Luck.
