Have PKD kidney and PLD. Pain in flank while doing squats. Advice?

I have PKD kidney and PLD. I was doing some leg squats on a squat machine with weights. When I squatted I received a very excruciating pain in my upper left flank area. It has been three days and it is still very sore and tender in that area. I have no blood in my urine . I am a very active 48 year old female with this disease. Please advise.

Urologist 's  Response
From your history I suspect one of the cyst in the kidney has ruptured which has given you excruciating pain. PKD kidneys are usually large and prone for traumatic injury. Other possibility is muscle spasm which can also cause severe pain. Please consult your urologist.
