I'm always so freaked out about this shit.
Is there some way to definitively know if my balls are twisted? The internet says all it needs is half a rotation but my freaked out mind always says they are rotated like 20 times.
Also, is manual twisting a good idea? I mean, to fix the potentially dangerous twisting? How can I even know if I am twisting in the right direction?
This sounds like one of those master ruses. If this shit's real, don't risk mutilating your balls further.
You will know they are twisted, because you'll be rolling about the floor wanting to die and screaming at the top of your lungs.
I was one of those unlucky ones. The more you fiddle about with it, the more at risk you are of this so just leave it be and get on with your life.
Its literally the most logical thing. Ive done this for as long as I can remember. Probably once I realized I could twist them I instinctively knew I shouldnt play too far and forgot if I had made 1 too many turns or not. Only solution is to let them choose where to go.
No youll know when they are twisted too far. Ive had pain in my balls and what felt like the string they are attached too. I just assume all ball pain is torsion and try to adjust them.
no, all testicular pain != torsion.
Firstly, you could have a torsion in your testicular appendix; this feels like waves of aching in your testicle, localized sore spot, and swelling
You could have varicocele which might result in what looks like swelling of the veins at the top of the sack (and sometimes pain/discomfort). This is just a varicose vein in the scrotum; no big deal.
You may have epididymitis, which can be caused by an infection but is characterized by testicle pain that can come and go and may be acute or chronic.
The good thing about testicular torsion is the pain will be very acute and nearly debilitating (you won't be able to walk). If treated immediately, its not a big deal. How old are you OP? This usually presents in pre-pubescent boys - 25 years of age.
This is probably the one thing that keeps me from going to the hospital. Although I generally panic and think its testicle torsion, the ball pain I get is usually more aching and dull and goes away in a few moments once I start doing >>16813371.
ok, I wouldn't be freaked if I were you. Testicular discomfort (especially transient discomfort) is quite common. You really need to be concerned when shit is acute or painful && chronic.
Something you can do in the meantime, is journal. Make note of what you were doing just before the painful episode
>what physical activities just prior and earlier in the day
>what have you been eating over the last week
>how were you sleeping that day (on your belly?)
>how long did it last, what did the pain feel like, and how did it dissipate
Journalling will help you identify trends and ultimately aid your doctor should you ever need to see one
for additional context, there was once a guy who came in for epididymitis (all the symptoms were there). But the kicker was that the symptoms only presented after doing butterfly stretches. Turns out the stretches pinched a groan nerve which caused testicular pain similar to epididymitis. He stopped the stretches (replaced them with another exercise) and never looked back. His journaling helped him see the trend.
think about it and realize why you're wrong.
Standing and walking creates force against your testicles (gravitational force exerted, disproportionately, against your testicles by the planet).
As you walk, G-Force is exerted on your testicle pulling it toward the earth's center mass, whilst the earth is spinning.
As the earth spins, it causes your testicles to spin, thus increasing your odds of a torsion.
>Proof: The billions of men throughout history who have been brought to their knees by the act of walking alone.
Shit is dangerous... don't believe the hype. Walking will fuck your shit up!
If you have torsion you'll know right away. We were taught in sex ed that the pain is excruciating. Should it happen, you need to go to the ER. Your balls depend on it. Time is crucial.
You KNOW 100% when it happens because the feeling makes you throw up and like you've been stabbed and you will possibly die, you won't be able to walk properly or anything.
It won't happen unless something extreme occurs which will cause it to happen, ie. fucking in the shower and slipping and getting your balls whacked 1080 degrees by the faucet.
