I have a bloated, painful feeling around my bladder
Patient :I have a bloated, painful feeling around my bladder and lower left side of my stomach. I feel the need to urinate often but don't actually need to. It's not painful when I urinate though. I am a male. What could this be?
Welcome to Ask The Doctor.
I understand your concern.
It seems you are suffering from Stones in your renal tract particularly in ureter with or without Urinary Tract Infection (UTI).
I would advise you following:
1.Ultrasound Abdomen with KUB.
3. Urine culture.
4. X ray KUB.
You would be treated based on size, site of the stone.
If Urine infection is found you would be given antibiotics based on culture report.
This is my personal opinion for you based on available details.
