Brief Answer: May be due to stone in the urinary tract system Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic! Symptoms you have mentioned may be due to stone in the urinary tract system. A stone or calculus may be lodged any where in the urinary tract system(ureter, bladder or bladder outlet, kidney) and depending on location the location of pain varies. However, it may not be stone and just inflammation of bladder due to infection. Investigations like urine examination and ultrasound of abdomen/pelvis are needed as soon as possible. Please visit your doctor as early as possible. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications. If not, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.
