Connecting the Dots: Exploring the Link Between Epididymitis and Bladder Pain

Generally speaking, epididymitis does not directly cause bladder pain. However, in the following case, epididymitis may indirectly cause bladder pain:


The male reproductive and urinary system is interlinked, and disease in one part of the system can easily cause more infectious diseases. 


Without prompt treatments for epididymitis, inflammation will affect adjacent tissues and organs, form inflammation in other parts of the urinary system, and then stimulate the bladder, leading to bladder pain.


When the symptoms occur in men, they should pay attention to it and seek timely medical examination for treatment to avoid worsening epididymitis and causing a more significant impact on their health. When taking medicines, patients with epididymitis should also take appropriate care and pay attention to personal hygiene to help inflammation subside and restore health.


So what are the causes of bladder pain in patients?


There are many causes of bladder pain in patients, and accurate judgments can only be made through routine examinations. The causes of bladder pain include:


1. Acute and chronic infectious diseases of the bladder: bladder pain is often caused by bacterial infections. The most common pathogenic bacteria for non-specific infections are gram-negative bacteria, accounting for over 70%. 


Under normal circumstances, the bladder has strong resistance to bacteria. Still, when the bladder has lesions and low resistance, bacteria can invade the bladder through the urinary tract, causing bladder pain. Acute inflammation causes irritating pain, while chronic cystitis's characteristics are primarily dull and bloating.


2. Bladder stones or tumors: Stones or tumors can stimulate the trigone of the bladder, causing bladder pain and discomfort during urination. Bladder stones are stones that are discharged into the bladder with urine. Urinary stones are hard crystals formed by mineral components in urine. 


A combination of stone removal and etiological treatment should be used for treatment. Bladder tumors require timely diagnosis and therapy at a reputable hospital's urology department, actively cooperating with doctors to avoid delaying the condition.


3. Prostate hyperplasia: It is commonly seen in elderly patients. The enlarged prostate gland compresses the bladder, causing difficulty in urination and discomfort in the bladder. For benign prostatic hyperplasia, medication or surgery can be used to reduce prostate volume. 


If there are no discomfort symptoms, there is no need for special treatment. When symptoms occur, it is necessary to go to a regular hospital for treatment and diagnosis promptly.


4. Pelvic or intestinal diseases, pelvic muscle or bone problems, or other causes, such as neurological disorders, can also cause pain in the bladder area.


5. Psycho-psychological factors: some patients without cystitis, infections, bladder stones, urinary retention, and other diseases also show pain in the bladder area, which may be linked with psychosocial factors, anxiety, depression, and somatoform disorders.


6. Other factors: Pain sensitivity or systemic pain syndrome, patients with irritable bowel syndrome, chronic urethral pain, chronic pelvic pain, etc.


Patients should pay attention to the following points in daily life to prevent bladder pain:


1. Pay attention to urinary tract hygiene to prevent urinary tract infections. Do not use scented shower gel, as it can cause unnecessary chemical stimulation to the bladder's inner lining.


2. Pay attention to rest, drink plenty of hot water, and avoid overeating spicy and stimulating food.


3. Don't hold back urine, pay attention to cleanliness and hygiene, and keep the lower part of the body clean. Regularly regulate sexual activity and immediately clear urine from the bladder before and after sexual intercourse.


4. Don't wear clothes that are too tight, such as jeans, to prevent the occurrence of cystitis.


5. Eat more fresh vegetables and diuretic fruits, such as watermelons, pears, melons, grapes, pineapples, etc. Foods such as snails, corn, mung beans, shepherd's purse, scallions, and safflower can help alleviate symptoms of frequent urination, urgency, and pain and prevent the occurrence of cystitis and irritable bowel syndrome.
