Greetings Jenny.

Do you have bloating, tenderness on abdomen, nausea, vomiting, constipation?
Any history of kidney stone?
Any previous abdominal surgery?

Hello Jenny,

Following are the possibilities of your symptoms;

1) mild grade intestinal infection
2) diverticulitis
3) appendicitis (far less chance as usually nausea, and loss of appetite is marked with pain usually not subsiding)
4) small ureter stone passing from kidney to bladder.

An ultrasound would help in the diagnosis.

You may need a course of antibiotic. Meanwhile you may take probiotics and drink plenty of liquids and water.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
