Perhaps many men may feel embarrassed to mention epididymitis because it is a private matter. Some even think they can tolerate the uncomfortable symptoms when they appear. This idea must be discarded because these painful symptoms may indicate that the man is already suffering from epididymitis. Pain is a prominent symptom of epididymitis, and many men find it unbearable. 

So, under what circumstances will the pain caused by epididymitis aggravate?

Epididymitis is a common urological disease in men. It happens when the body's resistance is low. At such times, certain pathogenic bacteria such as coccus will enter the epididymis retrogradely through the vas deferens and cause inflammation. In addition, this disease may lead to various complications, including urethritis, prostatitis, etc., so men should not ignore it.
Epididymitis is divided into acute and chronic epididymitis, and the characteristics of pain it causes are inconsistent. Generally speaking, the pain of epididymitis is aggravated in the following cases.
1.The pain will increase during the acute attack. The onset of acute epididymitis is usually sudden, with limited scrotum pain radiating along the vas deferens to the groin or lumbar region. Then, the pain is significantly aggravated, and the epididymis enlarges rapidly, sometimes multiplying in size within 3-4 hours. 
This may be accompanied by systemic symptoms, such as elevated body temperature, chills, etc. If combined with urethritis and prostatitis, patients may experience pain in the lower abdomen and perineum, painful ejaculation, painful urination, and other symptoms. And the pain is severe. Patients may need to lie flat and rest immediately.
2. The pain increases when touched during physical examination or when pressure is normally applied. When a physical exam is taken, or unintentional touching is applied to lesions previously formed in a man's body, the epididymis can be felt enlarged and hardened, and some patients may experience increased pain.
3. The pain increases when external forces damage the epididymis. External injury is unpredictable. Many men suffer testicular or epididymal injuries due to accidental car accidents or violence. The patients will experience pain in one side of the testicle or scrotum. Later on, as the pain worsens, the patients will feel pain in the perineum and lower abdomen, becoming more intense. If the areas are touched by hand, there will be severe pain.
4. The pain increases when doing strenuous exercise. Strenuous exercise sometimes causes muscular contraction of the levator muscle, leading to epididymis pain. Since the contraction of the levator muscle blocks the blood supply to the epididymis, patients will have severe pain and scrotal swelling, and their skin in the testicular and epididymal area may also be edematous.
Therefore, patients with epididymitis need to pay more attention in daily life to relieve the pain. For the inflammation of the epididymis, the main focus is to eliminate the inflammation. Patients can take the herbal medicine Diuretic and Anti-inflammatory Pill. It can activate blood circulation, eliminate blood stasis and relieve pain in patients. 
Besides, it can kill many kinds of bacteria and viruses, and pathogens, such as mycoplasma and chlamydia, that can cause diseases in the male genitourinary system. It effectively treats epididymitis, prostatitis, urinary tract infection, etc.
If the pain is still severe, patients can combine it with pain-relieving drugs or local cold compresses to relieve pain. Patients should have more rest, drink more water, and improve immunity to better fight the disease.
