I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.
I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.
Following are the common causes of your symptoms;
a) Recurrent torsion tests
b) Inflammation or infection of testes and/or epididymis.
c) Radiation pain due to ureter or bladder stone.
An ultrasound and x-ray are the best investigations to assess the cause apart from physical exam.
Chronic scrotal pain is usually related to noninflammatory conditions but chronic infections also should be considered. Because the testes arise embryologically in close proximity to the kidneys, pain arising in the kidneys or retroperitoneum (back of the abdomen) may also be referred to the testes. So an abdominal ultrasound, intravenous pyelography and a CT scan of the abdomen also should be done to evaluate testicular pain.
A urine and sperm culture for pyogenic organisms and mycobacterium should be done. This should be able to point towards the chronic infection and give the guidelines for the further management.
Following causes to be considered for the pain are;
1) Recurrent torsion
2) Torsion or inflammation of the appendix of the testes
3) Infectious epididymitis
4) Noninfectious epididymitis; occur due to reflux of urine through the ejaculatory ducts and vas into the epididymis, producing a "chemical" inflammation
5) Referred pain - the genitofemoral, ilioinguinal, or posterior scrotal nerves CAN CAUSE REFERRED PAIN. Other causes of referred pain are abdominal aortic aneurysm, ureteric stone, lower lumbar or sacral nerve root impingement, retrocecal appendicitis, retroperitoneal tumor, hernia.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
