Few investigations to get a proper diagnosis

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
To recapitulate: XXXXXXX Male/56 - in Philippines - burning in left testicle - past history of kidney stones - tropical climate - dehydration - drinking more water is helping some ...

With an elucidate history you have provided, the probable causes are:
stone in the left ureter with or without infection causing referred pain in the left testicle.
Another possibility is the problem with the testicle and/or epididymis called epididymitis or epididymo-orchitis.

I would advise you the following:
Tests of blood and urine, preferably culture and sensitivity of urine if you have not been started on antibiotic.
Ultrasonography of the abdomen and scrotum to get a proper diagnosis.
Get started on proper medications as per the reports.
Please continue to drink more water purposefully.
Please give the feedback of the reports.

I hope this answer helps you to get a proper diagnosis and management.
