Brief Answer:
Obviously having a urinary tract problem

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for posting on XXXXXXX

From your description, I suspect 3 possible diseases that could have caused the above symptoms.
- complicated UTI
- Prostate disorder: benign prostate hypertrophy, prostate cancer but symptoms would have been with obstructive urination
- Bladder, ureteral and/or kidney stones
Given your age, you are susceptible on acquiring any of the 3 diseases.
Your situation is considered serious and you should see a urologist as soon as you can. It would not be advised to stay at home and expect symptoms to resolve. The cause has to be treated immediately after your doctor must have determined it.

Hope this helps and wish you the best. Please feel free to ask more questions.
