KIdney pain


Early this year I went overseas. During the flight (6hrs into the 12hr flight) I felt extreemely thirsty. It was maybe only 30 mins later that I drank water. At this point I helt pain in my kidney. i could barley sit as the pain became more severe. After the flight I drank lots of water and took about 4 pain killers b4 the pain eventually went away.

On two occasions after this when I experienced extreeme thirst I start getting that kidney pain. I usually goes away after drinking lots of water. I am worried about it and wonder what could be wrong?

Thank u
