Doctor

A:   It is most probable that the pain you are experiencing could be due to epididymitis, a urinary tract infection or ureteric colic due to stone. It is difficult for one to tell without examination and tests. Both epididymitis and urinary tract infection get better with antibiotics. Renal stones on the other-hand may require further evaluation and treatment depending on the size of the stone.
If you are continuing to have pain even after taking medications, I would advise you to setup and appointment with your doctor for a physical and lab-work like urinalysis, culture and ultrasound of the kidneys and pelvis.
