Hello, and welcome to e health forum.

The description of your symptoms indicate the possibility of renal stones and or a urinary infection. ‎

Pain that originates due to renal issues (Stones, infection) is episodic , spasmodic or colicky in ‎nature, ‎originating in the flank and radiating to the lower belly, inner thigh. It is ‎associated with other ‎symptoms like nausea, vomiting and systemic features due to any infection. ‎

Renal pain does not resolve with change in position nor with adequate rest and can even cause ‎sleep ‎disturbances. ‎

Renal colic may not respond to moderate or high doses of OTC pain killers and may need ‎immediate ‎medical attention with IV medications or Narcotic analgesics. ‎

Urinary infections present with burning pain or discomfort with urination. ‎

You might consider consulting your doctor or a Urologist for a physical examination and additional ‎evaluation (urine analysis and culture) ‎and proper treatment. ‎

I hope you find this information useful.‎
