Brief Answer:
It can be due to muscular spasm.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing your query.

It may be due to muscle spasm.

You should do hot fomentation and apply a pain relief gel locally.
Pain killer like Ibuprofen twice a day after meals along with a muscular relaxant like chlorzoxazone and omeprazole 40 mg will help in relieving your symptoms. I treat my patients with these drugs. Your treating doctor will know about these drugs.

I would also suggest that you should get a Kidney Function Test done(if not already done) along with a Urine examination.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
