Testis torsion: Can be intermittent, testis usually lies higher than it is normally & pain is severe. More common torsion is associated with every severe pain which continues until spermatic cord is untwisted, manually or surgically. Pain is usually confined to the affected side. Try & consult urologist. Try twisting testis in direction, like closing a book, until pain occurs, if same = intermittent torsion.

Not torsion: This isn't testicular torsion. Correct about agonizing and constant. Are you the same 16 year old who asked another question about torsion recently, including elevation of the testicle? If so, it appears you are abnormally anxious about your testiclar health, to the point of obsession. Discuss this with an adult you trust, preferably a health professional. Do it soon. Good luck.
