Tenderness in the kidney area. Any idea what it is?

Last night as I got out of bed for a moment, I felt a pronounced tenderness on my right side about the size of my fist halfway between my waistline and the bottom of my ribs (where I presume my kidney would be). Thinking is was back pain , I had my wife massage the area, but that turned out to be quite painful. Bottom line, it seemed to be very tender to the touch. When I woke up this morning, it felt @ 75% better. Any thoughts?

Hi, many thanks for the query!
It can be muscular pain.
You need to do certain investigations- USG (Abdo-Pelvis), X-ray KUB,
Sr. creat., Sr. BUN, Sr. Uric acid, Urine (Routine & Microscopy).
For time being, you may take anti-spasmodics, pain killers, muscle relaxants with
your doctor's opinion.
Drink plenty of water so that at least 2 litres of urine is voided in 24 hrs.
Wish you a good health.
Take care.
