Welcome to icliniq.com.
There could be many reasons for the problems you are stating. So to know exactly what is the cause of pain many more questions need to be asked.
I would like to know exactly where on the left side does the pain occurs? Is it below the ribs or lower than that? Do you have any change in taste or acidity? Does the pain also go to the back? What is the color of your urine? Any other problems like loose motion or vomit? Do you have a fever? These questions will help me come near to the diagnosis and then with relevant tests, we could come to a confirmed diagnosis.
As far as the medication that are prescribed to you I would like to say that both of them are strong pain killer which are given for problems like kidney stones, but they will not cure the problem. So the diagnosis is a must to find out what is the problem with you in order to give you the correct drugs.

Well, now the site of pain is pretty clear and possibilities narrow down. Urinary tract infection (UTI) is still possible. So to confirm that a detailed urine report is needed. Apart from urinary tract infection, there could also be a possibility of a kidney stone which can also be tested some what on urine detailed report by showing few RBCs.
One thing I am sorry to say that I still do not know your gender which could further help with a few other possibilities that are possible in one gender but not in the other.
