This is a *great* piece - maybe the best I've seen on the internet. However, as I can sadly attest to, the following statement is only partially true:"Individuals sometimes attribute testicular pain to Pubalgia, but in reality; the two conditions are unique and separate."They are and they aren't. In my case, (presumed) pubalgia led to, among other things, a genitofemoral neuralgia which masqueraded as testicular pain. Although the pain didn't come from the testicle proper, it may as well have. If you ever develop chronic pain after a horseback riding stretching injury, even decades later, look to the pectineus.
