Our expert says:
It could have been either a kidney stone or infection especially as you had a fever. You could take citrosoda preventatively and drink at least 1 glass of water every hour while flying. It could also have been due to lower back muscle spasm caused by the seat and long period of sitting. I think you should take painkillers in your hand luggage just in case.
