Brief Answer: An Xray KUB should help Detailed Answer: Hi Thank for writing back I yet feel an Xray KUB needs to be done to rule out a small calculus Other possibility is muscle spasm, but then there is no history of any weight lifting or trauma, so I would suggest In the mean time continue with Buscopan tablet two to three times a day If that does not give relief try Diclofenac 50mg twice a day Hope this helps Do write back in case of concern Wishing you a healthy life ahead
