What are the symptom of a bell clapper deformity?

I am concerned about the possibility of a BellClapper Deformity. My GP refuses to give me a referrel , as I am not in any pain, he says everything is normal. He contacted a Urologist by phone but would not explain that the testi is turning 180°. He said there is a slight change in orientation, however I use my Epididimys as a landmark, and clearly the testi turns 180° back and forth on a daily basis. Could you please advise. I am concerned that I will suffer a full torsion of the testi if I do not seek a professional opinion. Thank you
