It is not uncommon for back pain to go along with testicular pain, called referred pain. It can be muscular. But, one very common reason for this is a kidney stone. However, disorders within the abdomen, such as a hernia can also cause it. Unfortunately, there are many causes.

If the pain persists or gets worse, especially if it is associated with other symptoms (ie fever, malasie, nausea, blood in urine, etc) then you should see your physician.

Good luck.
