Welcome to the forum. I am really glad to help you out.

You should get urine analysis done in view of the symptoms which you have described.

You are at a risk of formation of stones in the urinary tract and there’s a possibility that they may be already there.

Hence, I’ll suggest you to get an ultrasound of the urinary tract done. You should also drink plenty of fluids to prevent the deposition of crystals in the urinary tract.

Please do consult a urologist also for the same. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
