Hello dear,

Pain in the testicular region can be attributed to:
1. Trauma
2. Inflammation/infection.

In your post you have mentioned about doing hyperextensions in the gym, which might have caused trauma.
However, an infective or inflammatory cause can also be thought of...such as orchitis or epididymo-orchitis.

Under such condition, you need to take antibiotics along with analgesics under the guidance of a Urologist.
There is nothing to will be fine.
Make sure you take the medications properly.
Also avoid wearing tight fitting underwear or that pressure in the testicular area can be prevented.

Wishing a Good Health. Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
