I've been through the whole thread, and I feel that it's fairly likely that I have some kind of SH, or at least something related. However, I feel that the circumstances behind mine may be particularly unique - there are a few particular factors that I think may possibly have helped cause my problems. Before I describe my symptoms or how exactly I injured myself, i will describe these circumstances.
1) For the few weeks before I injured myself I had been practicing some penis exercises (known as jelquing, and stretching), that basically involve pulling on the penis and forcing blood into it. I put great strain on areas all around the penis, especially, I believe, the inguinal canal. I would try hard to start the squeeze of my jelq very low down on the base of my penis and would pull up on it very hard.
2) For the few weeks before i injured myself, I have also been in a pretty intense Kegal exercise regime.
3) I bicycle about 3-4 miles a day, and weight train (bodybuild) about 3-4 days a week.
Now for the the beginning of my symptoms (I'm a very healthy and fit 23 year old male).
Day 0: Had some average/fairly rough sex late at night.
Day 1: Woke up early. All day i had a very dull feeling (barely even a pain)in my pelvic region. At first I thought i was just sore from sex. It was a dull feeling/pain inside my body about 2-3 inches above my penis.
Day 2: cant remember if the dull pain was still there or not. Worked out (weight training) and finished off with 4 sets of powercleans. It was more weight than i had ever power cleaned, even though i have not done power cleans in 5 years. No symptoms yet besides the dull pain from a few days earlier.
Day 3: Worked out in the gym. I cant remember if that dull pain was there or not. A the end of the work out i began a quarter mile sprint. I only got 5 steps into it before i felt a very very sharp intense pain all around my penis and balls area, especially just to the top left of my penis. The pain slowly faded away, but still remained. It was worse when i moved in any way. Pain slowly faded as the day went on, but was still there when i went to sleep.
Day 4: when i woke up, the pain was gone. But it was back an hour later. The only physical activity i had done was light 1.5 mile bike ride. I cant remember if the pain was in the middle or on one side. It got slightly better aw the day went on. Only other exercise was a second light 1.5 mile bike ride.
Day 5: Same exact as day 4.
Day 6: Same exact as day 4 and 5.
Day 7: Woke up and the pain was already there. It remained as the day went on. At about 2 am, while VERY drunk, the pain finally went away. It was likely a result of the booze.
Days 8-10 (now): Pain is constant but shifting. It is there when i wake up and go to sleep, no real difference. The only physical activity i engage in is bicycling about 3 miles a day. There is no increased pain when I bicycle. For a while on day 9 my testicles hurt a good deal, but only for 3-4 hours. The past few days, I've felt like there's a pressure on my bladder and/or colon. I basically constantly feel like i have to poop/fart and urinate.
When i am standing and lift my right leg up, i hear and feel a faint popping within pelvic region.
Also, quite large amounts of Ibuprofen have done absolutely nothing for the pain or discomfort thusfar.
I figure its worth mentioning that i take 4 grams of Creatine and 8 grams of L-Glutamine a day.
So, what are your thoughts? From the research i have done, it seems that usually "running athletes" + hockey players generally get SH's. I rarely run, but rather weight train and bike.
The real problem is the lingering pain. I find it hard to concentrate....which is bad for a law student like myself who has to spend 10 hours a day studying.
