Hi emilygibson.

Thanks for your question.
severe lower abdominal pain may be due to appendicitis or lower ureteric stones. as you need ultrasound abdomen to rule out these two common diseases. once it is confirmed that there are stones in the ureter of sze less than 8mm ,usually do not require any special treatment except pain killer and taking lots of fluids and somes antispasmodic drugs like dicyclomine. stones more than 8mm requires intervention. so better not to take pain killer for prolonged period.

Hello
Ask for the cause of pain from your doctor. It is not safe to continue painkillers for prolonged time without knowing the reason of pain.
