Thank you for your reply,
He said the pain was not a burning one so I assume collicky
No abdominal pain, no fever.
He says it hasnt hurt before and this morning he didnt complain.
Please give me some more symptons I would need to see before making a doctrors appt. I am assuming a urinary infection is associated with a fever. But let me know if there is other symptoms I should be looking for, or if there is something other than an infection that could cause this pain.

Thank you for your help

If the pain is colicky there are probabilities it can be of intestinal origin also

You may look for frequency of stool , nausea , vomiting ,mucus in stool or tenesmus

Frequency of urine, Pus in urine, and/or blood in urine

It can be infection of urinary origin or intestinal origin depending on symptoms

Hope this helps
