Brief Answer:
Hello

Detailed Answer:
This sounds like either a kidney stone or a kidney infection.

To work it up would require an exam, a urinalysis, and a ct scan of the abdomen and pelvis.

Stones usually pass in a few days

An infection would need a course of antibiotics

You need to see a doctor about this for a workup and treatment
