Have lower back pain, sore testicle and cough. How to get cured?

Hi. I have lower back pain , sore testicals and a cough . The best way to describe my soreness is that it feels like I have been wearing very tight pants. This discomfort started a few days ago but is worse today. My back pain is intermittent and I think in my kidney area. This started yesterday and was just one side, but both sides are sore today. My cough started yesterday

Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from acute viral upper respiratory tract infection with epididymo-orchitis.
Presence of cough along with painful testicles suggest the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for ultrasound imaging of scrotum & urine routine & microscopy examination.
Although these infections are viral in origin, yet you should take antibiotics for prevention of secondary bacterial infection.
You should also take cough suppressants, analgesics.
You should perform gargles three times in a day with lukewarm water & pinch of salt.
You should wear loose pants.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

hello, these symptoms are present in UTI or renal stones ,drink excessive liquid or water. Go for ultrasound and urine routine test you will be more confirmed. If you have infection then add antibiotics with antiinflammatory medicine like ibu-para combination.
