User :   hi, I bent over yesterday to lift the post and somehow I pulled something in my lower back, I was finding it very hard to move because of the pain so I went to A&E this morning and after waiting 5 hours the doc gave me a 60 second examination and asked me a few questions, one which was 'am I feeling any other pain other than my back?'. I told her I was feeling some pain at the back of my left calf. She then told me I had a muscle sprain and it will be fine after 5/6 days. So after I got home I started to get a dull pain in my left teste, and now after 8 hours of this dull pain I have noticed the left teste is alot smaller than the right. Is this something I should be worried about??
