Problems with Kidney

Patient : I am an 18 y.o. male. About a week ago I had some pain when urinating and my doctor diagnosed me with a UTI and gave me cotrimoxazol. He told me to take it for 5 days and if there is more pain take it for 10. The pain subsided within about 3 days but I kept taking the medicine (till day 7). By around day 7, I started to get some kidney pain and went to a doctor. I did a urine test there and it was clear and he wasn't sure what was wrong but he gave me a new set of antibiotics to take if I started to get a fever. However I didn't get a fever so I haven't taken the anti-biotics but do still have some kidney pain (more on the right side) and sometimes some pain towards my flank and lower abdomen (also right side), and once in a while a little pain in my testicle (right). My urination has been normal (no pain), although I am still going quite often. Could these pains just be side effects from the cotrimoxazol? Or a UTI? or something else?
