Pain in bladder after urinating

Can't say for sure without examination.

The bladder symptoms should be initially worked up with a urinalysis.  This can evaluate for infection - which would be the most common cause.  A cystoscopy can be considered if the symptoms continue.

Regarding the upper abdominal pains - an upper GI series is a reasonable initial test for the upper GI tract.  An ultrasound can be considered if negative.

For the lower abdominal pains, I would start with an abdominal CT scan to evaluate the appendix as well as for diverticulitis or colitis.  

These tests can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
