Dear lybrate-user. What you describe look like urinary tract infection. It could also be other more serous types of infections. Best idea is to show to a doctor in person for clinical examination and at least get a urine test done to see if there is infection. Your doctor might advise a ultra sonography of the abdomen also. Hope this helps.

Hi, you should go for brisk walk in the morning. Do regular exercise. Go for running, skipping, cycling etc. To reduce tummy, lie down on flat surface raise your legs without bending your knees, do it for 3-5 times. Don't take rice at night and don't skip breakfast. Drink more water in a day. Avoid junk food and oily food. Take small and frequent meals. You can consult me privately online on lybrate for any advice.
