thanks for choosing health care magic.It seems that you are having problem with urinary system.Either it could be urine infection or stone disease.Go to your doctor ,you may need and urine examination and ultrasound for confirmation of diagnosis.Other possibilities like appendicitis and some other infection can also be ruled out by ultrasound.Take antispasmodic for pain and you can try applying local pain cream for relief.Also measure your temperature which can guide towards infection.
