Chronic Pain in Left Testicle

For the past year I've been feeling pain in my left testicle. The level of pain varies, sometimes it is sharp and at other times I hardly notice it. The only time I don't feel pain is when I wake up in the morning.

I don't know if it's related but I also feel pain on the left side of my lower back. The pain gets more intense when I bend over to my left side. Additionally, my erections haven't been as strong since this started. Does anyone have any ideas?

Edit: I should also mention that I have had a CT, MRI, and taken several courses or antibiotics and anti inflammatory medications.

I am struggling with the same issue. I have gone to the ER and seen urologists. My pain lasts all day, I have the least pain in the morning. I took an ultrasound and they found a vericocele, I was given no pain medication I think my region is just strict, I've been in agonizing pain and no one has helped me. I was given levaquin for suspicion it was an infection but am yet to pick it up as I've had many bloodtests done urine analyses with no result. My wishes to you, research a good urologist. It's bars to find decent healthcare these days.

I have been suffering the same issue for nearly 3 years now and have had every known test available. In addition I have completed numerous bouts of antibiotics to no avail, because it would appear that no infection exists. The latest doctor I visited diagnosed the condition as Epididymitis and has again placed me on more antibiotics........still no joy in the pain area though. I'm returning to the urologist next month and as far as I am concerned they can cut my nuts off, because I am sick of the pain.
