Thank you for your query,
Testicular torsion is an emergency and you should consult your surgeon as early as possible.
If it is delayed to seek medical attention the torsion of testis lead to decreased blood supply to that testis and gangrene.
Regarding ADHD, you should use prescribed medication only and smoking ice is injurious to your health and it is illegal so better to discuss with your family, treating doctor and your surgeon and do accordingly.
Hope i answered your query.

My advice is that you immediately refer to a surgeon and tell all your problems. Tell your parents too and keep them posted.
God bless you
