Symptoms of Kidney stones:
• No early symptoms - early stages have no symptoms
• Severe abdominal pain
• Kidney pain - sharp pain usually on the back and at the side
o Severe back pain
o Side pain
• Groin pain
• Kidney infection symptoms - very serious symptoms:

avoid any alcoholic drink thats above 5% in alcohol and limit intake to max of 2 drinks per night.
drink 1 liter of water when you wake up every morning (going to be tough but you will see the benefits within a fortnight), and keep body well hydrated during the day.
drink green tea if caffeine is a must.
before retiring to rest at night drink a glass of warm milk mixed with organic honey.
some more specific suggestions:-
if pain is sharp shooting and sporadic, and if diagnosis is epidydimitis - then follow a strict plan of doxycycline, ciprofloxacin or a one dose azithromycin.
if pain is sharp shooting and sudden and if diagnosis cannot be made, it could be testicular torsion.this requires immediate (rush out of house now) medical attention now.
gonorhhea and chlamydia are the other possible causes that require urological examination, and can be cured with antibiotics.
other than the general suggestions above any correct diagnosis cannot be reached without medical professional consultation.
this helps my pain and symptoms.
Your regular Doctor cannot prescribe the best pain medication for you.
Seek a pain management specialist or nuro person.
I found the following information at this site. I have the Lower right back and right testical pain. Additionally, I have bad muscle spasms in my lower abdomen and sharp shooting pains as it progresses. I went to the doctor and the can't figure it out. I drink lots of coffee and have cut it out of my diet, but the doctor couldn't tell me anything.
Hernias of various types can develop in men and women.
Inguinal or groin hernia: The most common type, inguinal hernias occur in about 2% of men in the United States. These hernias are divided into two different types, direct and indirect. Both occur in the area where the skin crease at the top of the thigh joins the torso (the inguinal crease), but they have slightly different origins. Both types of hernias are treated the same way.
Indirect inguinal hernia: An indirect hernia follows the pathway that the testicles made during prebirth development. It descends from the abdomen into the scrotum. This pathway normally closes before birth but remains a possible place for a hernia. Sometimes the hernial sac may protrude into the scrotum. An indirect inguinal hernia may occur in people of any age but becomes more common as people age.
Direct inguinal hernia: The direct inguinal hernia occurs slightly to the inside of the site of the indirect hernia, in a place where the abdominal wall is naturally slightly thinner. It rarely protrudes into the scrotum. Unlike the indirect hernia, which can occur in people of any age, the direct hernia almost always occurs in middle-aged and elderly people because the abdominal walls weaken with age.

I remember my left testicle hurt for several weeks, was accompanied by burning/difficulty urinating, and then turned "heavy" and rock hard, seemingly overnight. It was diagnosed as a tumor at the ER, and I had an orchiectomy and six weeks of follow-up radiation to my lower abdomen. Since then, my remaining testicle has sporadically flared up in pain. Two urologists have flippantly dismissed ultrasounds done on my surviving testicle as "completely normal", while a third said that it looks "abnormal". I've had the "epididimitis" diagnosis many times... In the meantime, no one has proposed any solutions for how to deal with this pain, nor have any doctors seen fit to prescribe anything to dull it (Excedrin and ibuprofen don't even begin to touch it). I'm scared as hell of losing my only nut. Feel like it's not a matter of doctors not being able to help me, but that I don't have ritzy enough health insurance for them to give a damn...
The pain usually starts in the upper buttock, you can feel when it is going to be bad. Occassionally you get a sharp "electrical" type pain in the testical that is not as bad as the regular pain, but can scare you. I also get a weird sensation feeling in the penis as well, like a pulling feeling or burning (remember I have been to multiple urologists and no problem found) that comes and goes and seems to get better when lying down. Then my hips and groin seem to tighten. I do sporadically feel a pain in the back part of my hip that comes and seems to feel like testicular/sickening pain. Sorry to ramble, but its desperation now. I am 37 years old and have had to leave my regular job for one where I just answer the phone (not move), had to move in with my parents because I cant afford my own place anymore, and cannot go out and do anything because I am too afraid of the pain. Thanks everyone.
