Thanks for writing your query.

After reading your post, i would like to suggest that you should get following investigations done :-
1. Urine examination(Routine/Microscopic and Culture/Sensitivity).
2. Ultrasound of lower abdomen including KUB region.
3. Kidney Function Test.
4. Complete Blood Count(CBC).

Your symptoms seems to be indicative of Urinary Tract Infection(UTI), which can result from a stone in the urinary tract.

You should get yourself clinically examined and investigated and follow the medical management according to the reports of the investigations.
Culture/Sensitivity reports of the urine analysis will help in knowing the appropriate antibiotic for the infection.

You should drink lots of pure water daily. This will help in some relief of your symptoms.

I hope this is helpful to you.
