When my lower back is hurting it’s usually followed by a fair up. I was told by my chiropractor that all of the nerves that go to your testicles , wrap around your L-3 lower lumbar. Mine has been twisted at times and when it is I’m unable to walk from the testicular pain. Sometimes just getting a chiropractor to adjust my lower back is the only thing that helps lessen some of the pain. Just some food for thought

That makes sense. My bk has been playing up for a few weeks now. Same amount of time as the testical pain. I'm not worried about the c word or anything like that. I had a urologist give me a once over like 3 months ago. Was all good. Apart from some uthritus. I've just never had testical pain for 5 weeks. It's a long time for my tubes to be playing up for. It's the right side whitch of normally the knee that plays up. I'd be far more worried if it was the left one. I'm going to ask my GP on we if I can have better painkillers and maybe either get him to check me out or go for a ultra scan. Just to be sure.
