Dull right flank pain with one possible other symptom
For the past 12 months or so I have had an occasional reoccuring dull flank pain in my lower right side. It feels like it's 'below the muscle'. It's very mild and only a slight nuissance. I have not have any other symptoms associated with it (fever, nausea, etc.).
Also, it's almost a mild throb or very slow pulsing when it occurs.
I don't know if this could be related, but whenever I drink alcohol I urinate A LOT. more than the average person, every 5-10 minutes once I've had 3-4 beers and it's almost as if I'm urinating more than I'm consuming. the urine is clear and as if my body is filtering as fast as I'm consuming. When I drink, I probably have 2-3 beers every 2 hours for a span of 2-4 hours.
Could this be serious? I want to get it checked out, but I was going to wait for the next year. The pain has not got any worse or frequent. I also hear of a lot of flank pain cases being dismissed.
Also, sometimes when I urinate, To get out that last quirt, I have to reach under my penis and put pressure on the urethra at the base of my scrotum. Otherwise, when I put things away it could leak from a couple of drops to a couple of CC's of urine.
