You should get an X ray chest PA view to rule out any pathology in the lower part of the lung.Ultrasound abdomen should also to be taken for any left kidney disease.
If you have a stone in the kidney,then you have to take medicine for the dissolution of it.
Take muscle relaxant and do breathing exercises.
If you come back with the above latest test results, i will clarify further.
Wish you good health
