Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

One of the causes for severe intermittent pain over the loin is ureteric colic. This occurs when a stone passes down the ureter ( the one that drains urine from the kidneys to urinary bladder). Ultrasound scan of the abdomen may be done for confirmation.

Drink plenty of fluids. Continue taking Ibuprofen 400 mg and get medical attention as soon as possible.

I hope that answers your question.
