User :   I have pain in my right testicle that comes and goes. It started 4 days ago after a brisk walk. I am athletic and walk 20-25 miles/week. It's a thobbing type of pain and I have not had a recent injury there. I am a 45 year old male that just started Diovan for high BP. Can this be a side effect? There is no swelling just the intermittent throbbing. Thanks.
