The symptoms of pain in the in the back region going down to the groin are very suggestive of either renal or ureteric stones, or ureterolithiasis. These are commonly accompanied by uti, and may also have haematuria, or blood in the urine. Since the pain has persisted after antibiotics this is very likely. In general, ureteric stones cause sharp colicky pain from the flanks to the scrotum which comes and goes and is very severe, kidney stones would give you a more generalised and aching pain from the flanks to the scrotum which is constant and dull.

You should consult your doctor and have an Ultrasound done to confirm this. Your doctor can also prescribe analgesics and antispasmodics for this. In the meantime, you should drink lots of water to help it to pass along.

Hope this resolves your query. If you need more help, just write back here so l can continue to assist. Stay safe!
