I am 43yr old female, lower right side back pain that travels along the side to the front, below the rib area along with ammonia smelling urine. The smell started about a year ago and have been on several rounds of antibiotics, which last urine test in Dec said it was clear of an infection....The pain in the side and back started in November off and on and now a constant pain. Extreme fatigue, Extreme tiredness, stress level is very high. Just worried because I really do not feel good. Have been this way since October of last year. Had a battery of tests done in Nov and Dec. Heart, lungs and liver checked out just fine.

Thanks for the query.
Sorry to hear about the pain.
Stones in the urinary tract should be looked for the cause of the pain.
U seem to get repeated urinary tract infection. Bock in the urne passage need to be looked for.
Both of the above will be evaluated by a urologist and there is remedy for both.
Hope i answered,pls get back for doubts, if any.
