Can't figure out what's wrong

I'm 37 years old and I've lived with minor power back pain for years since I'm on my feet a lot. It would come and go but it was never very severe. Over the last few months it has gotten steadily worse. It's mainly the lower right side below the kidney and spreads across my back. It hurts the most while sitting or laying down. It has now moved down my groin into my right testicle. It's all related because that only hurts when my back is hurting. And during all this I've been experiencing erectile issues, including numbness.  CT and MRI came back normal, so no kidney stones, hernia or even disc issues. I'm being referred to a neurologist and urologist but I was hoping to know if someone could shed some more light on this.

    The good thing is they are elevating your case to the other doctors to rule out issues, that is all you can ask when the previous doctor cannot determine cause.  Its a very positive move for getting to the bottom of the issue.  Sorry I cannot offer any personal stories on similar problems as mine are quite a bit different than yours. Good luck

    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
