In brief: Rule out torsion

Intermittent testicular pain can be due to intermittent torsion (it) .
All tests will come back normal. Good test for it is ti twist the testicle inwards (like closing a book) and continue twisting until it is causes pain. Identical pain reproduction suggests it. Non specific testicular pain, so called "lovers nuts" 04 "blue balls" might be due to blood engorgement of the spermatic cord.
