Severe kidney or bladder pain every two weeks

I noticed for the past two months I will get lower abdominal pain that feels like menstrual cramps that then radiate to the lower right side of my back. The pain intensifies into stabbing shooting pain and I can barely breathe or move. Then I will become very nauseous and vomit. When I do, the pain fades. Its literally every two weeks! What is this?? Someone please advise I'm worried.

I went and had a bladder ultrasound, CT scan of abdomen, and urine sample. All came back normal. At this rate, I am due for another attack tomorrow or Saturday!! I am getting worried!

Is this just on one side? You definitely need to go see your doctor for an evaluation. There are several things that could be responsible for this. Examples include, endometriosis, gallbladder pain (although that is often upper quadrant pain, it 'can' radiate there), gall stones, kidney stones, IBS, a UTI, fibromyalgia, celiac disease, diverticulitis, https://www.healthline.com/health/abdominal-bloating-and-back-pain#irritable-bowel-syndrome-ibs  The link doesn't look like it would apply but it does. Here is another with even more ideas. https://www.mayoclinic.org/symptoms/pelvic-pain/basics/causes/sym-20050898  When was your last physical?
