Hi, I'm new to this site. I have had pain on my left flank for around a week. It is always worse first thing in the morning or after lying down. Yesterday morning I started with bad cramps and then diarrhea. It got better after an hour or so but I still felt unwell. This morning the cramps and diarrhea were much worse and I ended up in bed most of the day. I'm a male in my 30's and although I'm not overweight or unhealthy I am a heavy drinker (particularly since Covid lockdowns!) and a smoker. Does this sound like it could be kidney or similar? Is there anything I should do to try and ease it? I don't want to make a GP appointment at this time because of the strain on the health service. Many thanks in advance.
