Hello there everyone.... I'm posting this not in my own interest but in the interest of others out there that have experienced the same problem that i am currently having and dont know where to turn to or where to look on the net for the right advice. I was in india in december and got bad stomach cramps, causing me to be on the toilet quite alot. In doing so i caused a reflux of urine (from using my stomach muscles so much) and i developed what i believe to be an epididymitis. Anyone who has gone to india (Goa) knows that the charras (hash-like solid) they sell there is AMAZING! anyway.... i smoked every day while i was there, and every day since.... So.... My epididymitis hasn't gone away, with multiple rounds of anti biotics... and every time i smoked weed it seemed to intensify the pain somewhat (not loads, but enough to be noticable) And then i came across an article on the net (After HOURS OF SEARCHING) that might shed light on my problem... "Marijuana abuse raises the level of the inflammatory hormone prostaglandin E-2 in the body which can induce inflammation in brain arteries, constricting blood flow to the brain. These narrowed arteries require high blood pressure to pump blood up to your brain. Prostaglandin E2 can also loosen the brain-blood barrier and then increase the drug's penetration into the cerebrospinal fluid. All of this can result in hypertension, headaches, migraines, blurred version, gum inflammation, sleeping disorder, and ear ringing, in addition to brain disorders, body or joint pains and inflammation, liver and kidney inflammation, and disorders of the prostate, uterus, cervix, bladder, and urethra. If you have inflammatory pains, disease or asthma, you must stop pot smoking immediately. " Since i've stopped smoking it seems that my epididymitis hasnt bothered me as much, and hopefully in time it will go away... i've had it for about 3 months now. I hope this helps anyone out there who seems to have an epididymitis/prostatitis that does not seem to want to get better... try stop smoking weed.... a crazy connection, weed and your balls, right? just try.... All the best.
