    Pain in the lower inside scrotum area
    sbc279 posted:
    I'm a 56 year ol male with MS. I've been living with it for 25 years now. For the first 20 tears, it ws laregly dormant, but the past 5 years it has been very aggressive. My Nero says I've moved in to the "Primary Progrtessive" stage.
    My biggest problem, besides extreme walking problems, is a burning like pain that appears either inside the lower sorotom or the area between it and my anus. It gets so intense at times that it drives me crazy. Sexually, everything works just fine, complete with ejaculation. It does tend to hurt less afterwards.
    I'm also having bowel issues, where I'll go up to a week betwenn decificating. That can't be normal. The ironic part is when it happens, it is as normal as can be (no constipation).
    Does anyone else (males) have these problems? Thanks

    I had a pain like that earlier in the year and was diagnosed with epidemitis which my urioligest said was, due to not clearing the bladder and urinary tract completely. It can be linked to STD's but not exclusively so do not let a doctor tell you otherwise . (happened to a friend of mine years ago and nearly ended his marrige)

    I am not a doctor but what you describe sounds like that including the irregular bowel movements.

    I think you should find a urioligest and have it checked out.

    Hope this helps
