Brief Answer:
Possible Diagnosis: Kidney/ ureteric stones

Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

Back pain that comes and goes along with testicular pain is possibly due to ureteric colic, which occurs due to stones in kidney/ureter.

Confirmation of diagnosis requires Urine analysis, X-ray and CT scan of Kidneys, ureter, and bladder.

I would also suggest that you get your thyroid hormone levels checked also. Increased thyroid hormone levels (hyperthyroidism) can cause shaking, weight loss and muscle pains.

Please be advised to follow up with your primary care provider to undergo the above-mentioned evaluation.

Meanwhile, Drink plenty of fluids to flush out the toxins and/ stones.
You can take Tylenol for pain along with Buscopan 10 mg 2 tablets 3 times daily.

Hope this answers your question
