Hi, Since you had some abnormal finding in the urine in the previous check -ups , i suggest to you to see a Nephrologist for a further evaluation of your previous symptoms and your current symptoms.You may need tests such as 24 hour urine collection to find out the amount of the protein in 24 hours in the urine, x-ray's, ultrasound and scan of the kidneys etc .The following conditions needs to be ruled out:
In bladder and kidney cancer you loose weight and bleeding is much more. Kidney infection the urinanalysis shows signs of kidney infection like wbc etc.
Nephrologist and Urologist take care of the same area of the body but one is surgeon and the other is internist that is internal medicine doctor.
Burning or frequent urination are usually signs of urinary tract infections especially urethritis not signs of tumor in the urinary tract.
Not always you can see the signs of the dibetes but it can cause protein in the urine.
You can see your PCP first.
In muscle pain if you doing movement involvoing that muscle it hurts but in kidney pain does not make any difference.
Kidney and bladder pains can come and go.
At this time sounds like a muscle problem to me.
Flank pain and blood in the urine you should look for.

If you didn't have pain or blood but just protein, then diabetes and elevated blood pressure needs to be ruled out. If everything normal , then it is hurt ribs or pulled muscle. To make diagnosis they use radiologic imaging. It is not easy to make diagnosis most of the time . You need help from kidney doctors.
