Not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, however, here goes.
(I am 22, exercise on a daily basis.)
about 2 years while on my first tour to iraq I noticed the lymph nodes in my left side of my groin were well...... HUGE! I can not feel the lymph nodes on my right side, but on my left side there are at least two clear inflammed swollen lymph nodes that almost are big enough to see through the skin when looking at my groin. At times it will look to be bruised in the area. I did not think much of it, and also have not been one for going to the doctors. However, the last 5 months of my previous tour up till now the area as become inflammed again and has brought on some discomfort. I have the sensation now that I have been hit in the testicals and the pain goes into my lower left abdominal and even into the upper inner side of my leg. Also around that time it reflarred out I have been having serious issues making a bowel movement. I feel like im constipated but nothing seems to help. I am able to pass one bowel movement but have the sensation that I am not able to have the pressure to push the rest out. Also in the first pass it looks like string cheese. Also to boot My anal area does not feel right when deficating. I feel like it is the problem restricting my bowel movement. Sorry for the detailed description. Around the time this all reflarred up it got so bad that I had to be taken to the emergency room in iraq. They ran some test to include a ultra sound of my testicals and swollen lymph nodes. They ruled out testical cancer, and said that my lymph nodes where obviously swollen above regular size. However, there still was nothing abnormally showing up on the ultra sound. They believed I was having some sort of infection, So they put me on a 10day antiboitic medication. However, after completing the meds and giving it a month I am still suffering from the same exact problems and at times have gotten worse. I'm growning increasingly worried and scared. I feel a little lost also because even after research nothing or no one have seem to have my symptoms or even close to them. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
