No: These symptoms can be due to chronic inflammation of the testicles or epididymis or prostatitis. A thorough history snd exam should be able to point to the possible cause. Do see your family physician or a urologist got further advice

Yes: Yes. This is so common it even has its own name in the lay public, known by many as "blue balls syndrome".
