Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.

Well Protein can be present in the urine due to problems such as kidney disease, kidney stones. If you have back pain associated with this, kidney stones maybe the problem.

Other common causes include exercise, dehydration, stress, fever. These cause transient proteinuria meaning it goes away.

If you continue to have protein, then your doctor may do more evaluation (kidney function tests).

I would recommend that you see Urologist or an examination and they may need to do the CT scan to evaluate for kidney stones that may need to be treated.

In the meantime you can try some self care measures like

Hydrate yourself with plenty of fluids.

Also eat low protein food.

You should take OTC Motrin for pain.

And do warm compresses with a heating pad on affected area.

Cranberry juice can be tried.

Thank you so much for your replyI do feel a bit hot and have been taking pain killers.I do not feel as bad today as I did yesterday but that may be because I am not sitting all day at work. I also felt pain in my wrist joints and neck yesterday but not today I thought it may be related to a virus.
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 10 months ago.

Thanks for the follow-up.

You should start a multi-vitamin supplement.

Also eat a bland diet.

Also continue other self care measures as we have discussed earlier.

If your symptoms'll not improve over the time then see your doctor again.

Hope this helps.
