See a doctor: You need to get tested for an infection if you are sexually active. If the pain is really severe and lasts more than 10-15 min you should see a doctor immediately as this could be a torsion which is a surgical emergency. Otherwise try some ibuprofen and if it is getting better it is ok to wait and see.

Potential emergency: A testicular torsion can cause that. You need to go to the ER now to reduce the risk of losing your testicle.

I think you mentioned you were calling the on call nurse at the local hospital on your response. If it was me, I wouldn't care what the nurse said, and I wouldn't even call. I would go straight to the ER. Time is of the essence. I saw you are in Belton. I have no affiliation, but Scott & White hospital in Temple should have someone available right now to evaluate and treat you.
