Havin' problems... down there...

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Jan 6, 2005.


  1. Yesterday, I'm not quiet sure when, but I injured... uh.. you know... I probably bumped into something or sat at a weird angle.


    Today, they still hurt. Not that much, just when I rub up against them. When I sit in a position it doesn't hurt at all. Only when they move or when they touch something.

    I'm thinking of going to the doctor if it gets any worse. Does any one have any suggestions?
     
  2. walk it off!! but what ever you do don't put any Ben-gay.

    I am going to kill myself for saying this, but you may have to be a little more descriptive of the "problem" if you want some help.

    Changes are your boys are just a little tender because you sat on them wrong, but you never know, its not an area that you want to mess around with, so the doctor might not be a bad idea.

    It could also be a friction injury (were you ecxercising a lot?) or an ingrown hair.

    PLease DONT post photos.
     

  4. I won't. I think I DID sit on them wrong, but could they be tender for 2 days?

    I wasn't exercising that day, although I did take my dog out for a walk.

    Contrary to popular opinion, im not really an expert in that area :D

    Im not sure if they could still be tender after a couple of days, but if it really has been two days and they are still sore it may be worth a visit to your doctor. Chances are you just put your weight on them and they are bruised or something but who knows.

    Alternatively you could PM JimS or Mikemulchay who, I think, are both doctors. I also understand that Mike Money has a lot of experience fooling around in that area :D
     
  8. I think I did put weight on them. I remember sleeping on my stomech this morning...
     

  9. dude, you shouldnt have stumped your toes in the first place and they wouldnt be sore. duh.








    :bag:
     
  10. Dude, you may have simply aggrivated them, or you could be facing something triggered by the aggrivation...like Epididimitis or something...if they weren't sore and you KNOW how they became sore, it's prolly not a biggie. But if it persists, I'd definitely see the doc. Don't put that stuff off. Remember Tom Green.


    Good luck with that.

    I found some pictures of Elephantitis, but I didn't think it would be appropriate to post. Do a google for images using the phrase "elephantitis" and you'll see what I mean.

    my old guitarist had one go sore.... here and there, then more so and more often.

    I'm not saying this is your case, but when he'd had enough and got checked out it was testicular cancer. They had to take it out. He's fine today... Luckily!

    But yeah, I'm with Jive! Quit it or you'll go blind!
     
  13. I think sometimes they just ache for the hell of it.

    I've had days when my boys weren't happy feeling, then it goes away.

    It's actually elephantiasis. Elephantitis would be inflammation of the elephant.

    Too much info.

    Sorry to be the one to inform you that lifting weights with them won't make them bigger.

    I suggest you see a professional. Then if there is a problem, go see a doctor.
