Testicle pain : Testicle pain is not usually associated with the flu. He may have another infection or two things going on. I can imagine that someone can get dehydrated from not drinking enough fluids from a "stomach flu" then develop a kidney stone that causes testicle pain but usually also back pain too. You should see a doctor.
