Dehydrated several times, intense pain in belly button, not urinating. How to correct it?

Thank you. I became dehydrated several times over the past years and experienced intense pain on my left side below the belly button but on the left front. I do not urinate. I drank 64oz of water yesterday and began to urinate again frequently this morning and pain is greatly reduced. What is going on? I know that I need to monitor sufficient water intake so that I do not become hydrated again. Thanks again, John

Dehydration results in less of urine since body has to conserve water.
Concentraed urine results in more concentration of ammonia in urine which hurts and causes pain.
Sometimes dehydration can cause interstitial cystitis also.
Treament consists of keeping yourself properly hydrated with plenty of water and avoiding drinks like coffee,alcohol etc which causes more dehydration.
I hope it helps.
