Thanks for the query.

Do you have any passage of blood in urine ?

Any back pain or lower abdominal pain ?

Since you have pain on attempting to pass urine, there is possibility of urinary stone which may be inside your urinary bladder. Other causes could be injury to the urinary tract as well.

Kindly drink 2-3 litres of water a day. Eat a diet with low carbohydrates and fat but with plenty of fresh fruits and XXXXXXX leafy vegetables. Avoid junk food, colas, caffeine, energy drinks, smoking and alcohol.

You must consult with a Urologist who may ask you to get X-ray Kidney and Urinary Bladder and sometimes ultrasound as well. If a urinary stone is found, it can be managed with medicines but if it is a large stone, it can be removed with an endoscope passed inside your urethra painlessly. If there is infection as seen in urine tests, antibiotics will be prescribed.

Nothing to worry. Get the consult as soon as possible. Follow above precautions thoroughly. Since you have gastritis, it would not be safe to take conventional pain killers, but you may take Paracetamol tablet 500mg twice a day under medical supervision.

I hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer your follow up queries.
