Pulled Muscle, Infection or Something Else?
Q. I’m 29. About three months ago, I was diagnosed with a urinary tract infection. I took antibiotics and it cleared up. Then I started having pain where the penis joins the body. The doctor diagnosed it as a pulled groin muscle. I took an anti-inflammatory medicine for a week and the pain subsided. However, now, two weeks later, the pain has come back. It is a dull pain that spreads into the groin and hurts the most after the penis has been erect for awhile. Some days are very painful. Could this be related to the infection, or is it just the pulled muscle? Or could it be something else?
A. Although your doctor says you had a pulled groin muscle, I am not so sure. In my practice, I don’t think I have ever seen a patient with a pulled groin muscle. Your symptoms are concerning because there are other reasons for persistent pain after a urinary tract infection.
