Pain in side after urinating. How to stop recurrence of pain?

Having pain on my left side. After eating fruit for breakfast and drinking 34 oz. of water I have to urinate a lot (expected) but then my left side hurts. Happens occasionally then goes away. First time it happened I was in extreme pain, went to the hospital and they didn't know what it was and the Dr. guessed that I passed a kidney stone. I eat a pretty healthy diet and drink about 102 oz. of water per day. I do not smoke or drink alcohol. What is going on with me and how can I stop this from re-occurring?

hi.. as your doctor rightly said, it could be a renal/ureteric colic... Get one ultrasound examination done in order to see if there are any more renal stones.. if it is there, it needs to be treated based on the stone size.. see your urologist if stones are found in the kidney.. if it is not there, drink lots of water, aviod alcohol/smoking/aerated cool drinks.. stop palak/spinach, reduce intake of tomato.. do regular exercise, but dont dehydrate yourself.. all the very best..

Hi, many thanks for the query!
Yes, it can be calculus related pain, you need to do certain investigations to confirm it, viz. USG (KUB), X-ray KUB, Sr. creat., Sr. BUN, Sr. Uric acid, Urine (Routine & Microscopy).
For time being, you may take anti-spasmodics, pain killers, diuretics as per your doctor's opinion.
Drink plenty of water so that 3 litres of urine is voided over 24 hours.
Review with reports.
Wish you a good health. Take care.
