I was diagnosed an interstitial cystitis (IC) patient and since one year I am suffering from testicle pain. Both testicles have pain that is associated with the simplest touch or hit, walk or move, and even when my pant touches them.

My pain is really just soreness to the touch. I have had it for many years and have seen many doctors about it. It is on the left side and seems like it got smaller with the soreness.

Extremely sharp but short bursts of pain in one of my testicles. It's a crippling, knock-me-off-my-feet pain and then goes away. I may not get any pain for days then all of a sudden it happens again.
