In brief: PROSTATITIS EVAL

R/O prostatitis v Epididymitis tough to treat.
Hopefully you have seen a urologist recently. Tx with doxycycline. I would recheck labs /UA C&S. & testosterone if no response ,cipro (ciprofloxacin) may be needed for 8-10wks. Recheck labs and culture. You also need abdominal/pelvic/prostate US R/O prostate stones. Also switch to gluten free diet Wholeapproach.com gutbliss.com Cipro (ciprofloxacin) may also be tried if no change.
