So I am 51 and my nutts are aching for a week now, Also have lower back pain as well as lower abdominal pain.

I normally would wait and see how things turn out, even with my BC HMO plan. I dont like medical facilities.

So my wife of many years, who happens to have her Masters in Nursing, and is current and working while my lazy ass retired has ball pain.

Bronwyn, my Wife said make an appointment. Hmmm, my nutts ache, I need an appointment.

Or, it will just go away I am thinking...JR

Testicular pain is a very common thing, dull ache spreading up to your abdomen, some folk have it for years, once the more serious things are ruled out, which is most important, have you checked for lumps as all men should and don't, why escapes me?
I never had it but having the snip started it off, regular bouts of aching but that's one of the side effects they don't make much of, some guys, well one in particular I talked to ended up permanently aching ouch. The only thing I've found that alleviated the problem was plenty of hot, not too hot baths chucking some Epsom salts in, it was a long shot but it worked.
But you do need checking, the good news is even if it was cancer the only bit of your body that has a 98% cure rate is your nuts surprisingly (although a friend of mine now has plastic nuts, we take the piss out of him and say if he ever has kids now they would have "made in China" moulded on thir asses.
Go to the doctor ( in my case she was a nice pretty young doctor so it was a bonus, no way I could get my nuts fondled by a young pretty girl, every cloud as they say)
Although Sir J has identified a terrible condition, tall welly syndrome, you don't want to chaff your nuts with your welly rims, and getting the legs down them can be hazardous (very Baaaad)
Get checked and don't worry

This isn't funny, I suffered this for years. Brave to even bring it up imho. Went to multiple Dr's until the seasonal pattern became clear. Work induced strain of 1 (ONE) tiny muscle in my right leg where it joined into my hip directly behind my scrotum pressing on a nerve. God the pain was intense spreading from my knee to my belly.
Pain meds, anti inflamitories by the bottle for years. I'm off the pain meds except for flair ups. I have to watch how I step up EVERY time I do it. It got a lot better but still did not go away until I changed how I sleep. Keeping both legs together made all the difference, no sprawling where that muscle got overstretched. The source of the pain is an area the size of a pencil eraser. Super soft chairs and less sitting helps. I cannot take wooden chairs anymore. Maybe this will help you I can only hope so, been there and it isn't fun.

My grandmother refused to see doctors because she was affraid of what they might say. She dropped dead when her Aeorta burst. My mother was same way, died the same way right after I graduated flight school. Am I supposed to have empathy? I surely felt angry which is a form of sadness, and can't help but think how stupid they were. Hey, it's your life, your body, I don't know you personally, but if your family member comes on here and says you died of cancer, and refused to see a doctor, I'll award you a Darwin medal! I'd much rather you go see a doctor so we don't lose another valuable member here.

Unless you've been riding a motorcycle for hours or have a lot of seat time in a tractor, you better get it checked out soon. Pain in the "walnut" can often be confused with pain in the testicles but your body is trying to tell you something. Better to get it checked out early or you risk loosing either or both. It may be a hernia, a muscle strain or something more serious. You won't know unless you see a doctor.

Don't fool around with this, go see a doctor. It may be nothing, but don't try to explain it away with excuses of underwear too tight, motorcycle riding, or some other excuse. You may have testicular torsion, testicular cancer, bladder cancer that has spread, colon cancer or a number of other disease processes which could be serious and very treatable of caught early. Time is not on your side prior to diagnosis. Disease of one part of the body can cause pain in another part, referred pain is the term.
Go find oput what the problem is and either ease your mind that the issue is minor or get treatment started to improve your chances of survival.

If it is dead weight they will fall off on their own, no need for a knife.:D

Kidding aside, it is far better to check and not need any attention than to ignore a potentially serious problem and wish you had done something before it was too late for help.

I've always thought of pain as an idiot light on your body that signals you may have a problem. Trouble is most of us can't decipher the benign from those that aren't.
You wouldn't drive an expensive car around with an indicator light on without knowing if it was detrimental to it's well being. Why would you do it to yourself? You've got a lot of money tied up in that unit. LOL Besides there are others counting on it running well.

I recently had something similar. I was diagnosed with a disc in my lower back going bad. A long day working at the lathe really kicked it off and had me in serious lower back pain. In my case the disc presses on a nerve from time to time. Pain radiating to your lower back, leg or testicles can be an indicator of this type of injury. Physical therapy seems to have helped a bunch. This type of injury can just happen over time. You may be at the point of it getting serious and a little help now may keep it form getting worse.

This may not be your problem, but it does need to be checked.

This may not be your problem, but it does need to be checked. Had the exact same thing happen to me several years ago with all the same symptoms as the OP mentioned.
I was doing a brake job on my fathers car, I was on my knees and went to put the tire back on, picked it up and leaned forward with the tire in out stretched arms and I felt a little pop in my lower back, I knew I messed something up doing almost nothing with so little weight, just bad positioning I guess. With an hour or so all the related symptoms started. After couple days of discomfort I went to my local chiropractor. My lower back was out. After an adjustment the symptoms began to subside with in an hour or so. It took a few visits and some Motrin before I was rid of the problem.
The second time this happened I over did the stretching and the kicking on the heavy bag. I pulled or over worked a groin muscle and had almost the same symptoms less the back and side aches. That went away on it's own in a week or so. But this was me. If in doubt, get checked out.

If you suffer from arthritis, then it's not unusual to have your nuts ache when rain is coming within two or three days. It's kind of like having your own personal weather witch. But--Go to a doctor. Aching nuts can foretell other really bad medical conditions that you aren't aware of, and the sooner you are looked at the better chance you stand of having a bad medical condition fixed.

That's why I never liked pain killers, they're akin to putting tape over the gauges. I've known too many people who have sore muscles etc and take a pain killer to keep going, only to find out later that a stretched muscle turned into a torn ligament.

Like you say, pain is the bodies way of telling you something's wrong, when you know the source slowing down is better and it's often safe to ignore, but when it comes out of the blue get it checked out.

Currently I have a new knee and limited use of my right hand because of pain and tingly fingers I ignored for years

I agree with the advice to get this checked out ASAP.

On the lighter side, I would ask for a stool sample before buying someone else's stool. I can also produce my own, and they're the best, and "Yuge!" :)

And, it is often said, that as one gets older, "Everything hurts, and what doesn't hurt, doesn't work!"

As a man ages the nuts will change configuration and size. Have you considered trying a different size wrench?
I see you are located in the USA so I assume you mostly use American Standard wrenches.
You may have to switch to metric in order to feel comfortable.
Try it for a few weeks and if you symptoms don't improve you may have no other option than Whitworth wrenches. ( the side effects may have you turning wrenches end for end to figure out what size they really are. Also you may start speaking with a Sir John accent that will be irreversible).

Actually the reason the balls are on the outside of the body is for temperature reasons. They need to be several degrees cooler for optimal sperm cell production.

When I was younger, one day out of the blue
I had a stabbing pain in my balls, all of a sudden.
It kinda got slowly better but felt not right for a while.
Then there was a hard lump in one side.
I went to the doctor and he said some blood vessels
had got tangled up in a knot and that is what it was.
He prescribed nothing and said it happens to men sometimes
and it was OK. From then on, I ditched the tighty whiteys
in favor of something more out in the breeze. I believe the
lump is still there to this day. Sometimes it would ache,
but not for many years, so I guess all is well. But yes I did
ask the doctor what was up. Good piece of mind if you do that too.

The cords and tissues that support your nuts CAN get twisted up. This restricts the blood supply to your nuts, and in a worst case scenario that can lead to gangrene. After that happens you are destined to sing in the choir in a very high voice. This is called a "torsion of the testes". see attached link.

Bri that is so true - happened to a friend of mine along time ago - kept complaining for weeks on end and finally went to see a Doc - says the Doc made him drop trow and then reaches out - grabs one of his balls and starts rotating it - then he said it was instant relief - Doc told him to stop wearing briefs and switch to boxers - let em hang and they wont get tangled/twisted...
