The symptoms you are putting forth are not suggestive of torsion per se. Every low lying testis is not bell clapper deformity. You should see a Urologist who will help you understand whether you need any medications.

Hello there..... I went through your query..... A bell clapper deformity is a predisposing factor in testicular torsion in which the tunica vaginalis joins high on the spermatic cord, leaving the testis free to rotate. Bell clapper deformity predisposes to intravaginal torsion of the testis..... Kindly consult Urologist for further treatment.....
