Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
Doctor seems to think I have epididymitis due to a swollen testicle and constant pain in testicle. He gave me doxycycline for 23 days. I'm only half way through but was in a lot of pain so started to take naproxen which seemed to work instantly. However since I've been taking the naproxen (orally) I have been experiencing about half a tea spoon of blood on my toilet paper, and a stinging while I'm going for a poo.
From this study (3 weeks ago):
I have an eczema-like rash on my chest and back of neck directly after stopping Doxycycline. It is not improving or getting worse over the past two weeks. Will see derm soon..
