Your symptoms are most suggestive of a stone passing from kidney to bladder.

A UTI and a prostate issue too can be a possibility.

Sigmoid colon inflammation can also be the other possibility with the diarrhea. It is self limiting. Probiotic and Pepto Bismol may help you.

You need to get following investigations done;

Urine exam

Urine culture

X-ray abdomen

Ultrasound.

These should be able to reveal the cause.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

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

Thanks for using Just Answer.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
