Thank you for your consult at DoctorSpring.com.
There is a good possibility that you are not suffering from anything major and only increasing the water intake shall improve your symptoms.
However, all your complaints can be caused by stone in the ureter ( there may be no pain) and you should certainly get an ultrasound KUb before anything else. You can share the same with me. In the meantime you can start drinking 2- 2.5 litres water and also lemon water twice daily without salt.
Hope this helps, please feel free to discuss further.

Patient replied :
Thank you. I will do that. In the case it were a stone in the ureter, would the cranberry pills or juice make it worse or the lemon water? Can I take both at the same time?
The cranberry pills are just cranberry concentrate with nothing else.
I will not recommend the cranberry water. Lemon water is just fine, but make sure you are not taking lot sugar or salt without it. As a matter of fact, just plain water would be good.
Hope this helps
