Thanks for all these additional details.
I am sorry to hear about your problems.
These symptoms can be due to any of these possible causes--Kidney stone-Diverticulitis-Cystitis-Gas or constipation.Diverticulitis is the inflammation or infection of the bulging sacs or pouches of the inner lining of the intestine called as diverticulosis. It causes severe pain in left lower side of the abdomen.The exact cause in not known. It is caused by small pieces of stool (feces) that become trapped in these pouches, causing infection or inflammation.A clinical examination, tests should be done for diagnosis. It includes- -Ultrasound of abdomen, -Urine test, -Complete blood count.There are few signs should prompt ER visit , these are-Severe increase in pain/ blood in stool/ sudden distention of abdomen/ loss of consciousness.I would advise you to consult your doctor ASAP or if the pain worsens rush to ER. You will need a detailed examination and tests.In the meantime take an oral painkiller Motrin 400mg twice a day and take light diet or fluids and rest.
Hope this helped
