While urban myth attributes back pain to "strychnine in the acid" [which 
is just not possible for blotter acid], its morelikely that the tripper 
was maintaining odd posture for extended periods of time due to their 
altered mind state. I reached this conclusion independantly after having 
observed that UNIVERSALLY those who were physically active [moving] 
during the trip ... never .. ever ... complained of back pain from "bad 
acid", while the trippers who spend hours sitting staring at walls had 
experienced back pain!!!

Perhaps you somehow injured yourself and were unaware of it at the time. 
Suffice to say that LSD did *not* cause any testicular problems, however 
you may have unintentionally damaged yourself. See a doc, dont mention 
the acid though...
