Hi there. One crude but simple observation you can make is to look at the colour of your urine.
If you experience a sharp pain originating from your right loin towards your right groin during urination and the urine colour turns dark brown or red, the chances of you having urinary tract stone are high.
If you are not sure, a quick visit to your GP with a dipstick urine test may reveal some helpful information. Right-sided abdominal pain may also be due to gallstone disease or gastric related problems.
If your symptoms are getting worse or happen more frequently, pay your doctor a visit.
You will need a CT scan to rule out urinary or kidney stones.
