Your symptoms are concerning and require prompt medical attention. The two diagnosed that must absolutely be ruled out are:
1) Kidney stone that has dislodged and is stuck in the ureter or bladder
2) A urinary tract infection.
Please go to the ER or Urgent Care center for a thorough examination and some labwork (urinalysis, chemistry panel, kidney function panel) in addition to imaging ( x-ray or CT scan).
